Dallas in Snapshots

I went to Dallas in April for a weeklong work trip, and while I spent most of the time in the hotel, we stayed at the Gaylord Texan...  so it was a really good place to be stuck!

Atrium in the Gaylord Texan

It was a beautiful resort, but I (biased!) like the Gaylord in Nashville better...  our atrium feels more jungle-y and unique.  But I did love the stores, the rooms with their balconies, the Starbucks/market, and the venue in general.

You may remember this picture from Instagram, but it was one of my fav snaps from the trip.  Bringing slippers on a trip to wear around the hotel is my little trip to feeling comfy and at home.  I was chillin'!

I had a free night, so I was able to meet up with my friend from middle/high school, AC.  We ate delicious pizzas at Fireside Pies.  Sorry no pics, but I do remember it was delicious!

I had fun with my coworkers too.  We did a volunteer event at an animal shelter, and we got to snuggle adoptable puppies.  PUPPIES!  I work for a pet food company, so that's what's up.

Overall, conference weeks aren't my favorite.  You're trapped in windowless rooms, getting fat because you I have no buffet willpower, and you're away from home.  But then you get to see friends, spend time with your best friends at work, and experience just a little bit of a new place.  I can't say that I really got to see much of Dallas, but it was a nice trip.

Oh, and when in Texas...  Whataburger!!!  It was really tasty.  It wasn't as good as Shake Shack or In-N-Out, but it was a solid fast food burger.  I'd eat it again!

Guess I need to get back to Dallas sometime... and see more than just the resort!
