We just got back from the coast - Port Aransas, TX - we (Bruce's brother Barry, Bruce, and myself) took my mother-in-law, Bonnie, to celebrate her birthday. We had the best weather ever with clean beaches and warm water! Perfection! We had a blast! I have lots of pictures to share. Hope you'll read to the end as I have two wonderful things to share with you!
What's trip without a stop at Buc-ees? It was my first stop at this giant gas station/convenience store. It is something to experience. Trust me.

After checking into our condo, we headed to the beach - nice! The beach is going to be perfect! The guys grabbed their fishing gear and we changed into swimsuits and enjoyed the water!

That night there was a full moon. How pretty the moon looked as it rose past the clouds.

It was so much fun. We ate seafood until we couldn't anymore and truly enjoyed our stay! Maybe Bonnie will want this to be a yearly tradition. I could go for that! :o)
I'm very excited to share two things with you -
First is my friend Cecilia Lynne over at My Thrift Store Addiction's e-book - "When The Glass Slipper Shatters". She is having a special promotion - please go by and read about it. It is a wonderful book on letting go and moving on. I think anyone who has suffered from anything that created bitterness could benefit from her wisdom. Hurry though, there's only a few days left.
Second, the upcoming Fall Tour Oct. 3rd - 7th! There are 20+ Texas bloggers that will be sharing their Fall decor. I will be showing you my city home on Tuesday, October 4th. Be sure to visit Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles on Monday, October 3rd for the start of the tour. I hope you will join us!
I'm going to be taking a short blogging break until the first week of October. I'll be back though to share my city home decked out for Fall.
