I ran around like a crazy person today getting ready for our BIG Texas trip! We leave early Friday and are staying til the following Wednsday. 4 of us girls getting away from the hubby's, the kids, the laundry., the dogs, and most of all the SHOP!
I know I shouldn't sound so excited about that, but the fact is it's taken us 11 years to make this trip a reality. When we first opened the store eleven years ago we had BABIES! Now most of us have empty nests for the very first time, I still have my Molly girl home she is still only 16 and 1/2 ( she let me know today it was her 6mo. driving anniversary) but she like most teenagers her age are gone from sun up to sun down, so I can finally feel like I am an adult person again for the first time in 23 years! I'm a big girl I'm leaving on a jet plane! With other big girls, we can just worry about what WE want to eat, and Drink whatever and I do mean whatever we WANT!
We don't have to run homework up to the school or find the lost car keys. No cleaning up after the dogs, the kids, the hubs! O Geeze I might not come back! :) JK :)
Love to all
I will take lots of pics and I promise more than just picks of trailers! O geeze I forgot about my little cottage on wheels I'm gonna miss her!
Hey speaking of my little trashy trailer I still need to give her a proper name, any suggestions I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment and if I pick your name suggestion I will send you a treasure from Texas!:)

You're gonna have so much fun! I live in Texas but don't go to th shows every year -- it's about 4 hours from me and I never plan early enough to get a room close to the action. Warrenton and Carmine are my favorites. How in the world will you get your treasures home?! Have a blast . . . I'm jealous.

I see you are friends with Tiffany too. LOVE HER!!! Met her in Savannaha last year when she taught at Petticoats & Parasols. Hope to get to know you better. Charlene
