Since we got our first puppy, Charlie, a little over a week ago, we've been pretty homebound. We spent his entire first weekend at home helping him get used to his new surroundings and routine. During the week, we take turns coming home at lunch to check on him, and we rush home at the end of the day to let him out of his crate. We spend our evenings eating take-out while he eats his own dinner, and then we go for a walk and play (and unpack boxes) until it's time for him (and us) to go to bed.
This past weekend, we took a few trips out of the house to run errands, but on Saturday night, we decided that a real date night was in order. We wanted to try something new, which isn't hard when you're living in a new city, so we made a short trek to Frisco to give BarnLight Eatery a try.
We kicked things off with drinks -- a classic margarita for my husband and a delicious Blackberry Citrus cocktail for me made with white wine, muddled blackberries, lime juice, and grapefruit juice. Even though liquor is available, I love that they offer a few wine "cocktails" that are light, refreshing, and perfect for summer sipping.
We're so glad to have such a great little spot only a couple miles down the road from us. And after leaving all of our well-loved restaurants in Boston, it's exciting and encouraging to start discovering some new favorites here in the Dallas area!
