a recliner, rush, a road trip + rain

I don't typically promote broken promises, but today I'm making an exception since my room isn't prepared for its BOD debut, despite my claim otherwise on Friday via BOD's new Instagram.

But in the meantime, I'll give you a photo diary of my weekend, which happened to be perfectly suited for the weather conditions.

It started with my first iPic movie experience, where I enjoyed reclining my seat just as much as the movie William and I saw, Rush.

I made the last minute decision to drive to Dallas in celebration of Mollie's belated 21st. We had more than a lot to catch up on, so we did so over a late lunch at a spot just around the corner from her town house, Bistro 31.

We took advantage of a momentary pause in the downpour and trudged through the puddles to Scoop, all too conveniently on the other side of the same shopping center.  The store's layout made the fall color trends very apparent with oxbloods, royal blues and steel greys having the most presence.

One store proved to be plenty, but we didn't make it home before a pit stop at Creme de la Cookie (her favorite spot--even over its neighbor and favorite of many Dallas friends JD's Chippery!).

No telling who takes the award for best cookie, but we these did the trick for an afternoon pick-me-up. They were made all the more enjoyable  in the comfort of her home, warmed up and served with with hot tea.

The cozy afternoon mood encouraged us to cancel dinner reservations and indulge in the rainy but restful weekend by cooking in.

She showed me around the SMU Kappa house before we went to Whole Foods to pick up our dinner ingredients, which ended up being a low maintenance meal of white turbot fish, vegetables and mint chocolate chip gelato.

We ate breakfast at Kozy (home to the best fresh-squeezed juices) and I hit the road in less than 24 hours since I had arrived. A quick trip, but well worth it on this wet but wonderful weekend.
