I promised to regale you with tales of my weekend in Dallas for Devon’s birthday – and I shall not disappoint. I drove to Little Rock to meet up with Devon and Niki and continued on to Dallas to stay with Andrew. Andrew lives in the cutest little apartment near downtown – and we all piled in with he and his dog Toby for a few days.
We got to Dallas around lunch time on Saturday and headed to the aquarium/zoo/terrarium. It brought back memories of our NWA adventures at the Gentry Safari.
One of our favorite moments was when we encountered this sloth.
Devon was trying her best to look “sloth-like” while posing with the sloth. Until the sloth’s handler (nametag reading “Sloth Whisperer”) came to rescue the sloth and take him away for a break… from being a sloth…

In the Shark Tunnel:
That night we met up with Devon’s cousin and his wife at the Bavarian Grill – which I highly recommend to anyone traveling to/thru Dallas. I ate something called Rahm Schnitzel for dinner and we had a sampler of various “wursts”. It was awesome.
There was a little man serenading us with an accordion.
And since it was Devon’s birthday weekend – our waitress played “Happy Birthday” with different-toned bells. It was quite the experience.
The night of the Rahm Schnitzel, we went out to The Round Up for a drink and wouldn’t you know it – I ran into someone I know from Fayetteville. Oddly enough, this was only the second time I’d been to The Round Up and BOTH times I’ve run into people I know… And even MORE ironic, is that the person I saw this weekend was WITH ME when I was last in Dallas at that bar. Weird…
On my way home – I managed to snap a photo of this sign on the side of the road just outside Conway.
In other news – today was my 2 year anniversary at Saatchi & Saatchi X. Yah!
