Glittering, sparkling diamonds littered the ground on Sunday - a bit of the glitz and glam of Hollywood's Oscars paying us a visit in Dallas by way of freezing rain and snow.  I slipped and slid in my car all the way back from the barn, where three teeny tiny, rough and tumble ponies had escaped from their stall and were gallivanting around the property like a pack of wild dogs.  Not sure if they were just frisky out in the cold but they seemed to enjoy kicking up their heels and dodging their "jailers."  Unfortunately,  Ryon didn't share the same feelings about their new found freedom and they honestly just freaked him the F out.  Pretty sure he though they were direwolves...

But back to the glitz and glam, this jewel-box of a home is all decked out for award season.  The indoor / outdoor living concept brings all of the raw, natural Texas elements in (although I hope it's well protected against the summer heat) and there is little necessity for art when you've got windows for walls.  If I were hosting an Oscar's watching party, I'd insist on you all dressing up in black-tie fashion and keep the bubbly flowing until rosy-fingered dawn made her appearance over the horizon the next morning.
