The Soda Gallery, Who Knew?




Good morning to everyone. Hope your week is going well and you are having some fun doing a little blog hopping.......Glad you landed on mine today:)


I had a little time to catch up on my reading this past weekend and came across a delightful sounding place that I thought would be fun to share with you. It's called The Soda Gallery and it's located in Dallas, Texas. I have never been to Dallas so all you Dallas readers, please chime in about this, I would love to hear what it's like.

Anywho, this quaint little shop offers over 200 varieties of you guessed it, SODA.......That is just sew cool to me.......

A bit more about them from their website:

"In addition to unusual sodas, the soda gallery also offer patrons the opportunity sit, relax and admire an ever changing collection of local and regional artists - with a heavy emphasis on pop art.

The soda gallery is proud to carry a wide variety of regional and international bottled sodas. Our selections range from old nostalgic favorites such, as Nesbitt's, Bubble Up, Squirt, Nugrape and Dutch Coke, all still produced with the original ingredients. We also carry regional specialties: Cheerwine from North Carolina, Berghoff's Root Beer from Chicago, Moxie Original Elixir from Maine and Detroit's favorite, Vernor's Ginger Ale. International flavors inlcude Chocomel (directly from Amsterdam) and the French orange drink recognized worldwide, Orangina. Root Beer lovers will find a vast selection of root beers: 28 different varieties. You can assemble a case where no two are the same. In fact, the soda gallery is unique in that we encourage our customers to customize their own 6-packs or cases to sample and share with friends and family. We currently offer over 155 different flavors from which to choose."



Now another great thing is they also have many of their sodas available online........Here is the website: thesodagallery.com. What a fun place! I wish I could visit in person.........

Have a great day and what's your favorite soda?

3. Write 5 Random things about yourself.

4. Tag Random people at the end of the post and link to them.

5. Let each person know they've been tagged.



O.k. 5 Random Silly things about me:


1. I make spaghetti and meatballs every single week for my boys.......I mean without fail......Now this could be sad depending on how you look at it but they love it......I mean I don't guess they will end up on Dr. Phil for eating too many meatballs:)


2. I do voices, yes voices..........NO I don't hear voices.......well I'm not going to admit that anyway, but I do voices. And you know what's fun, my oldest now does them too.......I kinda wish I had pursued where that "talent" could have taken me in Life. Who knows, maybe I would be Sandy Cheeks on Spongebob right now.......


3. I used to drink and the key words here are Used To! Drink at least 8 diet cokes a day! I know crazy, right????????? What is up with that, huh? well it was this crazy habit I suppose but stopped cold turkey, not even one now.....BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTTT Well there is the issue of those White Grape Sparkling waters...............Yes I do consume quite a few of those babies in a day......oh but they are soooooooooooo yummy......you have to try them if you haven't yet......


4. Once at work many many years ago, I was wearing a half-slip under my skirt........Well I went to get some information from a manager in our cafeteria.......I noticed everyone was gawking at me and not in a particularly good way......One guy, gasp and said, Oh my LORD! So I looked down and there it was all around my ankles..........yea you guessed it, my half slip!! Well without breaking my stride, one bit, I walked out of it, picked it up, tucked it under my arm and proceeded to get my questions answered......YIKES!!! Funny, after that I started getting some pretty obscene phone calls......


5. I don't drive on interstates at all, not even for short distances.......I hate them so much, even typing about them makes me queazy.......:o(...........Well needless to say, I've gotten myself in some really strange places trying to avoid them.......Many times too, not just once......Seen a lot of cool little towns too though that you miss on the BIG HIGHWAY...........


Now to Tag 3 other Bloggidites!








Have a great Monday everyone!

Pretty Inauguration Dress


Happy Monday everyone!! Hope everybody had a great weekend. We finally got some much needed sunshine and doesn't it just lift your spirits so much? It does for me. Yellow in general does that for me. Which brings me to today's topic, the First Lady's lovely inauguration dress.....I thought it was such a pretty color and did a little research to find out more about it....It was designed by Isabel Toledo and I thought it might be interesting to see some of her other designs.....So here are a few:
This is called Golden Wrap dress and the color looks like the inaugural dress to me. Cost $3,192




This is called Glitter Box Coat.........It costs $5,410


Here is her Sapphire Wrap Dress.......It costs approximately $3,192

Which one is your favorite? Did you like the First Lady's dress choice? Color, style?
