Texas Hill Country Holiday Activities
The holiday season is quickly approaching and one of our favorite family traditions is spending time together in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Just thinking about the dazzling, festive light displays amongst the gorgeous rolling hills of Central Texas makes us want to pack our bags and head out right now!
This was the dining experience we were most looking forward to on our Oklahoma City Weekend Itinerary. Ludivine is located in Midtown, which also happens to be one of our favorite areas in OKC. Ludivine is known for it’s elevated food and drinks. Chef Russ Johnson embraces the practice of real, scratch cooking, based on classical techniques, with a menu that changes daily. We loved that it was minutes away from the Ambassador hotel where we stayed and also close to shops and more.
Restaurant Review: Sassetta
We’ve been looking forward to trying Sassetta ever since this hot new restaurant opened in the heart of the Dallas Design District. We finally got our chance last weekend when we snagged a table for dinner. Sassetta definitely did not disappoint – everything was delicious from the cocktails to the food! The space is bright and airy with a sophisticated yet relaxed vibe. The interior design was as visually as pleasing as the food was tantalizing.
Ambassador Hotel Oklahoma City
The beautiful Ambassador Hotel in Oklahoma City served as the perfect launch pad for our OKC weekend getaway! The hotel is located in the Midtown District of OKC and is housed in the historic Osler building, originally built in 1928 as offices associated with the University of Oklahoma Medical School. When Coury Hospitality purchased the building in 2012 to transform it into the luxurious hotel it is today, they kept the original facade and medical insignia above the ornate entryway as a nod to the building’s past. This transformation of a historic building into a posh boutique hotel exemplifies the type of revitalization that is currently taking place across OKC – making this the perfect time to visit!
