Fort Worth Favorites

Oklahoma holds such a special place in my heart but I really have fallen in love with Fort Worth, TX.  Here are a few of my favorite things! Somethings may not be Fort Worth ONLY but I didn’t experience them until I moved here!

Food

Joe T. Garcias– Their marge will knock you off your feet! Such a great patio too! They do have a limited menu but the food is great!

The Original– Typical mexican food but it is a Fort Worth staple! We have tried most menu items and they have all be yummy!

Lucille’s– LOVE their brunch but their seafood is AMAZING too!

Old South– A fort worth staple open 24 hrs! GERMAN PANCAKES for the WIN!

The Woodshed– Outdoor seating with unique smokehouse choices.

RailHead– Texas BBQ at it’s best!

Winslow’s– Wine and cheese… can’t beat the cool atmosphere!

Hoffbrau- Steak, Steak, Steak… YUMMYY and great prices!

Swiss Pastry Shop– Black Forest Cake is AMAZING… not like a typical one but it will rock your world people.

Entertainment

Billy Bob’s– Country music at its best! Have been to several converts and we love the atmosphere [very intimate]! At an Eli Young Band concert we caught a guitar pick and drum stick!

Movie Tavern– Drinking and movie… unlike the place in Oklahoma the whole theater can drink as long as you are 21! Ticket prices are reasonable too!

Concerts in the Garden– Summer time, music, food and drink.  The FW Symphony has different themes and collaborations so you can attend for the music you love most!

Four Day Weekend– Similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway”, this 4 man group will keep you laughing!

 

Colonial– Caddy races, drinking and great scenery!

Shopping

Neiman Marcus– Top notch designers and several great sales throughout the year!

Apricot Lane– CUTE boutique. I am OBSESSED with their fleece lined leggings.

Health/Beauty

Smart Barre Class– LOVE these classes and can’t wait to see my body change!

Zeeba– Meredith is my girl and helps keep my hair looking fab.

I will continue to add to this list! What Fort Worth Places do you feel I missed or maybe that I should try?

Reflections

I knew this day would come sooner than I thought but today I found out my 10 year class reunion is in 6 months….

I feel like at the age I am at many friends are struggling with their identity and if they are where they thought they would be at this age….

Here is a reflection of what I thought I would be vs. where I am.

Baby-meets-arch-nemisis1-465x345

-Marriage.  I made a VERY dumb promise to my high school boyfriend that if we weren’t married by 30 we would marry each other…. Thank goodness I am married… I dodged a bullet there… AH to be young and in love! ha!

-Job.  I think in many ways (as with many in my generation), we grew up during a great time but around the time of college graduation the economy sunk… I had NO idea what I wanted to do when I went to college, but it all fell into place. Thus, I am happy with what I do now but man I struggled to get here.  I have also learned to find happiness in where I am volunteering and giving my time back.

-Family.  No kids yet but two great dogs.  I want kids just hasn’t happened yet! But I can say I NEVER would have guessed the tragedies that would strike my family (who would?!) BUT I can say I knew my family was strong and now I see where that strength helped us bond together and lift each other up.  I know moving forward major events will be bittersweet with out my mom but she is watching and guarding us, I know it!

-Location. Had you told me I would live in Texas 10 years ago, I probably would have laughed at you.  But now it is my home and my Texas family is growing.  It wasn’t easy to leave my friends and it sure was hard making new ones but I have and they are loyal souls that I am glad have made their mark in my life.

-Life. I think that I have grown into my skin.  I am content in life and am excited and curious as to what is to come.  I am sure I will continue to grow, learn and I am sure my strength will be tested but that is Life, gotta get through the bad to enjoy the good! 🙂

How much have you changed in the past 10 years?

Just for some giggles here is one of my oldest friends and myself (we have know each other for almost 22 years, SHESH), side by side at my Senior Prom (Can you say, HELLO, FAKE BAKE!)Then side by side before my wedding ceremony.
