As you may have gathered if you follow me, AT ALL… my husband and I are in f*cking love with our new home, what feels like our always-meant-to-be home, TEXAS, Ya’ll! From the gorgeous weather, to a more like-minded community, we have felt welcomed in a way that we could have only dreamed of - and more! We are so appreciative for the opportunities our life in Texas has brought, and man… I could not have imagined the GROWTH we have experienced over the last year.
A couple unexpected ways we’ve grown since being here are these: combining our businesses in a way we hadn’t previously thought of, and with that (along with our new community), a serious growth in our relationship. The food isn’t the only thing that’s gotten spicier since our move… if ya know what I mean ;) .
While thinking on all this lately, I thought, what better way to celebrate my appreciation than to share our top 5 date spots in our ‘hood, the Dallas-Fort Worth area! From fresh cocktails to amazing eats and fun activities we’ve found while spending quality time together – here are our faves!
Bob’s Steak and Chop House
Bob's Steak and Chop House in Dallas, TX is a well-regarded steakhouse known for its high-quality cuts of beef, elegant atmosphere, and friendly staff. They have been serving the Dallas community since 1993 and have since grown to 14 locations across the southern US!
The menu focuses primarily on steak, but also offers seafood options, salads, sides, and desserts. We love this place for a date night because of the impeccable service, and even better food! It’s great for romantic evenings out, but would also be a great spot for special occasions and business dinners.

1845 | Taste Texas
If you want to REALLY know you’re in Texas, you have to try 1845! A “modern steakhouse” that offers a unique dining experience showcasing the flavors of Texas. The restaurant's name is a nod to the year that Texas became a state. Walking in the doors, you’ll find modern-rustic décor. It has an upscale feeling, yet still relaxed and casual, with both indoor and outdoor seating available.
We love that this place uses many locally sourced ingredients, including beef, seafood, and seasonal produce. The restaurant also offers a selection of Texas craft beers, wines, and specialty cocktails to pair with the dishes. We highly recommend 1845 for solo date night or happy hour cocktails with a group!
