Saturday: Walking, Breakfast & a Trip North

Saturday morning I was bound and determined to take my visitors to two of my favorite Dallas spots: the Katy Trail and Company Café.  If you have read this blog at all before, you probably know that one of my favorite ways to spend a morning includes a walk/run on the trail followed by breakfast at Company Café.  Mom and Mary K loved it too, and our Saturday was off to a great start.



I get the same thing every time I come here, and I don’t know that I will ever tire of this meal!  It does not make for very exciting blog content, but it most certainly made for a great Saturday breakfast. 

After we freshened up and got ready for our day, we headed north to McKinney.  Before I get too ahead of myself, how cute does my sister look?  Don’t worry, I took some pics of all the details in her outfit to post later this week.  Such a fashionista!


Downtown McKinney was absolutely precious!  There were several cute clothing boutiques, and I found one of the best home décor stores ever.  Austin is probably not going to be thrilled about this discovery, but I know where I will be shopping to furnish a house when we purchase one! If any Dallas girls are interested, it is called Home & Garden Trading Company.  Here is a link to their Facebook page, and below are some quick pics of some of my favorite pieces I spotted.

Beautiful stained glass window – I would love to have something like this in our next home.  I also loved the look of this armoire.   Below is another pretty piece that I think could go a lot of different places in a house.  And finally, that gorgeous chair. Loved it so much!

These little nesting tables were really cute, and y’all know I love me some topiaries.

I thought this table was beautiful, but maybe with different chairs?  And definitely without whatever those creatures are on top!


My parents actually lived in Allen, and my mom taught in McKinney when I was a baby.  Mom was amazed at how much it has changed.  It was such a cute town and definitely worth the quick trip.
