She had been watching for me to return by way of my favorite past time...Pinterest!
I'm home from Texas!
From nearly two weeks of working on "Little Miss" and her fiancé Russell Wayne's new home...
Out in the boonies of Weatherford, Texas.
At first glance, It's quite fairytale like!
For the first few days...we didn't even have water!
They had just moved in.. and didn't have the utilities transferred right away!
They still don't have Internet! (that's practically prehistoric)
Let's just say...it was kind of like camping!
We had so...much to do inside before we could start putting away their things...mostly cleaning...
And painting! Lots and lots of painting!
10 gallons worth of painting!
I get tired everytime I think about it!
Rebecca was introduced to Texas's textured walls...She isn't a big fan!
She was a worker though...everyday we went at it with only a few breaks in between!
Mostly visits with April's new neighbor we call "Sugar"
He is such a charmer! Rebecca is head over heals for him and as you can see...He thinks she's pretty special too!
Then we met the cows across the street...
we didn't get their names.
Life in the sticks...pretty spectacular huh?
We managed to do some sight seeing!
I had to laugh, I lived in Texas for more than 20 years...
I have been down to the stockyards more times than I could count...
But not once...
Had I ever had my picture taken with Wild Bill!
He called this our "Charlie's Angels" pose!
What a hoot!
What would a trip to Cowtown be... (that would be Fort Worth for all you city slickers:)
Without a picture of a Longhorn steer.
Or a visit to a famous boot store!
I have a case of the serious "I wants"
Maybe if I'm real good...Santa will drop a pair of these beauties into my stocking! I'm not picky...any pair will do!
Next, we headed to Saginaw for April's Wedding Shower.
Hosted by her gorgeous Cousins...
And a couple of her beautiful Aunts.
It was so...much fun! I got to visit with people I haven't seen in years! Even meet with April's future in-laws!
Such adorable folks!
At the close of our Texas tour...
We met up with some blog buddies for lunch and shopping in Dallas.
Do you know these wonderful ladies?
Of course you do!!
It's my dear one Deb of Talking Trash
Her darling daughter Jennifer and of course, the very famous Bella, the beautiful granddaughter.
I have loved Deb since I first started reading her blog! She is such a child of God and funny to boot!
Meeting her face-to-face...was such a treasured moment for me!
Then, the beautiful Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered
I had never met Lisa in blogland but started following her once I got back home! She is a wonderful lady! So...talented!
Thank you all for such a wonderful day!
So many memories to treasure!
Rebecca and I had a wonderful time in the great state of Texas.
But I am quite exhausted!
She headed back to Chicago the next morning and I started to get back into my home routine...
Yep, I had a ton of email and of course, there was pinning to catch up on!
Hubby and I return to Texas in just a few weeks to spend Christmas with our Texas loved ones and then...
We leave for Las Vegas and the big event~
The wedding of Little Miss and her prince charming Russell Wayne!
(She is gonna shoot me for using this picture...but I thought it was cute!)
January will be here before you know it!
Well, that's the highlights. So many things I am sure I've left out but I really need to get busy!
I well share some pictures of their newly repainted interiors soon...definitely before the New Year!
Here is the sun setting at my daughter's house...can't you just see it...us 'ol cow pokes riding off into the sunset!
Until next time...Blessings to you!
