Our Family’s Fave Restaurants-Dallas

IMG_7426.JPGWe kind of feel like we, as in Erin, Hayley, Rourke and myself, have become very familiar with the Dallas restaurant scene.  With the kids residing there and with us frequently visiting them, we have done our fair-share of eating out!

Here is a round-up of our family faves!!

IMG_7459.JPGIMG_7460.JPGAll four of us agree that we love The Rustic.  It is a great, Uptown venue for just about any age.  It has live music, nightly in an outdoor area, filled with picnic tables.  The area is adorned with outdoor games and lights. IMG_7429.JPGIMG_7455.JPGThe inside is open-air (fyi no ac) with an amazing Southwestern menu and craft cocktails.IMG_7446.JPGIMG_7440.JPGIMG_7451.JPGIMG_7427.JPG

Their weekend brunch is served family-style and is also worth the long wait (no reservations).

P.S.  I just recently completed my fitness instructor certification and have accepted a job teaching classes off-hours at our local gym.

Because I want to do well at all of three of my jobs, I am cutting my blogging down to three days instead of five.  So, be looking for posts on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  

I want to provide you as readers with solid content that’s is also blog-worthy!

 Please bear with me on this!!  I am sure once I get my sea legs and get comfortable with all of these changes, I can resume five days of blogging.  But, I have to be realistic.

  Thank you in advance for your support. I would appreciate your prayers for an easy transition. 🙂
