Well, I survived the Texas heat. I was in Dallas for the weekend for the annual Texas State Fair.
I learned the fair has roots leading all the way back to 1886. It is a month long celebration of everything Texas. It is larger than any other fair I've been to (I've seen my fair share) and pretty fun.
I was setup just behind the W Dallas. It is a beautiful property with a really friendly staff. This is one of the first of the W Residences. About half the property is a hotel space and the other half is permanent residences. It's a great concept- who wouldn't want to live in a W Hotel?
You may also notice a picture or two from Southern Methodist University. I had the opportunity to swing by campus and take a look around. For any of you who have not seen this campus it is gorgeous. From the buildings to the landscape to the people, this is a really pretty place to visit.
