Picnic at the Arboretum

My Mom and Bonnie came in town last weekend, and they got to spend lots of quality time with Ava. Due to the absolutely perfect weather and the fact that neither had been before, we planned a trip to the Dallas Arboretum on Sunday (thanks to Gary and Betsy for our family membership for Christmas!). 

We started our visit with a picnic brunch, courtesy of Taco Joint, on the lawn overlooking the lake. 

After brunch, we made our way through the grounds. 

The Arboretum is currently featuring their "Dallas Blooms Festival," and the flowers are gorgeous!

It was a practically perfect way to spend a Sunday morning.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
