Getting ready for Le Dîner en Blanc

I'm looking for a white outfit for the upcoming Le Dîner en Blanc event on October 7th, 2017. What is Dîner en Blanc? Most people have never heard of exclusive soiree because it's the city's kept secret. It's a little like Fight Club, you'll have to find a way to get an invitation to attend but without the violence of course.And you know what the first rule of Fight Club is?  The first rule of Fight Club is that you never talk about Fight Club. It's the same with Dîner en Blanc.

Healthy Plant-based meals to go from Nature’s Plate

How did the back-to-school week go for you? We've had a trying time getting back to our 'school night hours'. Thankfully homework hasn't started yet for my older boys. That's next week's battle. For now,  we are trying to conquer breakfasts in a timely manner and getting back into the lunch schedule. Recently, we discovered Nature's Plate, a locally-owned store with plant-based meals to go which has been helpful. We're not vegetarians but we like having some inventive ways to add plant-based dishes to our meals.

JadeWaters Resort Pool Complex at The Hilton Anatole Dallas

Dallas has its first resort hotel with a water park thanks to opening of JadeWaters at The Hilton Anatole Dallas last summer. The 3-acre water park experience can be had for hotel guests only from Memorial Day to Labor Day. While you can visit JadeWaters any day of the week, the organized kids programming runs from Friday to Sunday. Here's the IttyBittyFoodies low-down on our fun-packed weekend at The Hilton Anatole Dallas.

10 reasons to staycay at Four Seasons Dallas

Staycations are perfect in the second half of summer. It is that time of summer when you feel time has whizzed by too fast. Wasn't it only just May? And with another impending school year just weeks away, we recommend a late summer getaway at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas* in Las Colinas. "Are we going on a long road trip?" my littles ask. The kids are pleasantly surprised that our 'road trip' ended in just thirty minutes. That's the beauty of vacationing at the Four Seasons Dallas; it feels far enough to be away somewhere without the pangs of travel time. But the Four Seasons is in more than the hotel business, they're in the business of making memories for the whole family. Our latest YouTube Video of our weekend staycation says it all. If you need more reasons to visit, here are our top ten reasons why IttyBittyFoodies love vacations at the Four Seasons Dallas.

Kabuki Japanese Restaurant, Galleria Dallas

I feel like a mall rat at The Galleria Dallas, lately. We're actually not there to shop but eat at Kabuki Japanese Restaurant.  Kabuki Japanese, the latest restaurant to open up at the Galleria Dallas has become a fast family favorite because of the vast menu. There's sushi, noodles, rolls, rice bowls to bento boxes so it suits all three of my IttyBittyFoodies and their food quirks. Kabuki Japanese even offers gluten-free options for my paleo friends, lots of veggie dishes for vegetarians and a huge bar for my drinking buddies. The clean, modern designs makes not-so-cool mommies like me feel like we're hip. It can double as a date night place or a nice outing with girlfriends. The restaurant is also spacious so it accommodates meals with multiple families while booths keeps things intimate for a party of two. Yep... Kabuki Japanese is that one-size-fits-all restaurant.
