TV History ... Texas Style

Hello Lovelies....

In an effort to catch up on all of the things that have been happening since moving to Dallas I am trying to back track and post about all of the "Dallasy" things that we have been doing. A few weeks ago Husby and I went to Southfork to see the filming spot of my all-time favorite (beside I Love Lucy) TV show DALLAS. If you aren't familiar with the show I suggest "googling" it on the Internet because it is the one of the original prime-time TV dramas. Think Keeping up with the Kardashians in 1978 but truly scripted. When I was in high school (pre-RHONJ) I would watch the Dallas seasons on DVD. I haven't started collecting them for my stash but I think that is coming soon. I had always wanted to go to  Southfork to see where the show was taped and Husby surprised me with a day trip. I felt like it was Christmas but only 100 degrees and we were on a ranch. The evidence is below...

I was hoping to see the Ewings at Southfork but I was shocked when they weren't there to greet me...

It was so neat because it was like time had stood still on the grounds. Everything looked exactly how I remember from the TV show. The furniture, the art on the walls, and the patio furniture is all original from the filming of the show. I am a total sucker for anything that has a place in "TV history" so I was beyond thrilled with our day trip. I am assuming that there are other TV buffs that visit Southfork becuase there was a gift shop that rivaled any tourist trap that I had ever seen. We picked up a few goodies and even had lunch at the diner on site. Overall it was a great Saturday.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and I will be doing a play by play of the wedding events this week.... I keep telling myself its better late than never- right?

Happy Sunday!

p/s- I picked up a new top for Pure Barre yesterday and I can't wait to sport it this afternoon. Who knew that work out class was also a fashion show?
