five questions

Welcome to Tiny Dallas. Every Friday we will ask a local mom to answer the following five questions. We thought we’d start off with us, your Tiny Dallas editors, so you can get to know us a little better!


In heavy rotation — Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes and Noah and The Whale

On your nightstand — the March issue of Architectural Digest and Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls

Always in your handbag — Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm, portable foundation/powder by Trish and Cheerios for Adi

Go-to outfit — Missoni scarf and Ash boots with a dress or leggings/tee combo for winter…ready to shed it for spring.

No brainer restaurant — Fernando’s for dinner or Sunday mimosa brunch


In heavy rotation — this week it’s Adele 21, Black Dub, Carole King and Cold War Kids

On your nightstand — my NOOK with These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf, the current issue of the New Yorker and US Weekly.

Always in your handbag — wallet, lip gloss, iphone, small note pad, ultra fine point sharpie and a travel size Aquaphor Healing Ointment that I use on my lips.

Go-to outfit — BDG Grazer skinny cropped jeans from Urban Outfitters, ballet flats, Zara white t-shirt and one of my many scarves.

No brainer restaurant — Coal Vines for date night and Cibus for brunch with the kiddos. (So we can sip Bellini’s while they run around CenterPark)


In heavy rotation — Cake (my girlies love the horns and the clever lyrics)

On your nightstand — Object of Beauty by Steve Martin (which for some reason is taking me forever to read) and the new issue of Anthology

Always in your handbag — My day planner (I’m a slave to my calendar, sadly), Kiehl’s lip balm, Lara bar

Go-to outfit — Chance striped dress, skinny cropped jeans, Laura Lombardi necklace, wedges

No brainer restaurant — Bolsa (for the Jimmy’s sausage flatbread pizza + fresh squeezed lemonade for the girlies and sangria for me)
