A client of mine bought a townhouse in Dallas! I leave tomorrow to decorate in the Lone Star State. I have never visited Texas but 18 years ago when my hair was longer and my boobs were bigger I was mistaken for Charlene Tilton (Lucy on Dallas) by some tragically hip Japanese girls in the Tokyo airport.

I am leaving my husband, 3 kids and 1 dog at home for 3 1/2 days with one of these...

...and these...

...and I'm still worried...and he's scared.


  1. Can you plan your return trip through Mpls?

  2. exciting. take loads of pictures. then share

  3. The Jennifer maid and the Scarlett nanny crack me up. Enjoy your time in sure to hit up some of our great Tex Mex places!

  4. Good luck!


  5. Have you been to NY, would the plane mind making a pit-stop here?

  6. Yay! If you have time be sure to check out the new AT&T Performing Arts Center!

    The Opera house is gorgeous!

  7. Thanks for all of the tips!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wish me luck...but my husband more!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Oh, I'm sorry I'm a little late with this!!
    I'm in Dallas and work at the Design Center, so I probably could have given you some tips!!

    Not sure where your client's townhome is, but laura is right - you must have some Tex-Mex!! Mattito's (in Uptown area), Mia's (near Oaklawn), Manny's (in Uptown) are all great "classic" choices. But there are so many, it's kind of hard to go wrong.

    At least it's been sunny and fairly mild (at least in the afternoons) here for you visit!!


Tell me what you really think.
