TRAVEL TEXAS (Chalk Bluff Park)

Just wrapped up our first camping trip of the year.  Of course, it was supposed to be in our new vintage camper.  Instead, I was in a tent.  But that's another story... We tried out was Chalk Bluff.  I had heard about it (and its crystal-clear waters and beautiful bluffs) for years, just had never made it out there.  The boys had a Friday off from school and my mom…

Viva Fiesta!

Well, San Antonio's fiesta wasn't as awesome for us as I had hoped it would be.  Next year I'll know to watch the calendar and plan ahead.  (this year Evan was with his dad one weekend, and we were camping on the other weekend) But other than missing both weekends of the big event.... The decorations and mariachi station (on Pandora) were a big hit at work.      …

Our Products in a New Shop (Market 1023)

  This happened quickly! I was planning a full weekend in the College Station area. We were hoping that our camper would be finished. I had made reservations at Lake Somerville. We were spending all day Saturday at the Museum of the American GI, for their Living History Weekend. I had found a cute restaurant to try. And then I came across this gorgeous home/body/gift shop! I looked all over…

Chicken Fun Show

We collected eggs for a week.  We bathed the hens.  We packed our chicken show supply bag.  And we were off.         The club pulled together another great show! In addition to the usual raffle, chicken competition, egg competition, fun games, and showmanship contest... we also had a concession stand up and running and we got to play a couple rounds of chicken poop bingo.  ;)  …

Boerne Diva Night

I was warned that the spring Diva Night is never as well attended as the fall is.  But, boy am I glad we didn't listen... and participated anyways! First off, Diva Night is quite expensive for little, old, handmade, don't-have-much-merchandise-to-actually-sell me.  I'll be honest, $200 is very difficult for me to scrape up, just to be listed as a participating business and be put on the map. And then the…
