Travel Texas (The Texas Bell Glamping)

A birthday trip made in heaven! My best friend (Myk) and I arrived at The Texas Bell on Thursday afternoon.  We were greeted by the wonderful husband and wife team (Jess and Leslie) with a tour of the tent and the grounds.  We did a little girly decorating (flowers and flamingos).  We mixed a few drinks.  And then Myk cooked up a wonderful dinner over the camp fire.    …

Our Products Went to Camp! (Camp Drunken Arrow)

A camp for grown ass women?!  A fun, adult, drunken, and crafty throwback to summer camp?!  I was all over that!  But I missed the deadline to sign up and attend.  :( So I found another way to participate.  From Scratch Farm became an official sponsor of the Saturday morning hangover bar.  Along with some other great products for all of the campers' swag bags, I supplied everyone with a…

Kendall County Fair!!!

Sadly, we didn't have any chickens to enter into the fair this year.  But we didn't walk away without ribbons!   I decided to enter the baking competition again. My mint chocolate cookies are some of my favorites.  Love them still, even though they didn't win.   My pumpkin muffins recipe is delicious.  But I think using a different canned pumpkin changed them a little bit.  No ribbon there.  …

Back to School!

First week of school is done!  A couple bumps in the road... and I need a nap.  But overall, it was a success. The middle schooler loves his classes and has a bunch of his friends with him throughout the day.  The little loves his elementary school's new building and his classroom.  And we're all biking to and from school (the weather has been fantastic for it!).  We celebrated with…

Our Beach Vacation!!!!!

I totally overposted this past week!  (sorry)  But I also got lots of messages, asking questions about our trip.  So I thought I'd blog about the experience, itinerary, and my little secret tips. Our schedule: Day one- Left Boerne by 11:00, got to South Padre by 4:30.  Checked in, warmed up dinner in the oven, and spent the evening on the beach.     Day two- Enjoyed the whole morning on…

Bloggin’!

It's time to make it a habit.  It's time for it to be on my calendar.  Maybe I need a perfect spot and someone to keep me accountable? My first thought is that Friday mornings are great for me.  And I'm wondering if a coffee shop, bakery, or library may be good places to park myself with my laptop.  But what will the coffee shop think... if I never buy…

The Love Letter Library Part 2

Do you remember what you were doing last weekend? I was due to write a new blog post Saturday.  But after watching a little too much footage of the Dallas shootings from Friday and reading too many heated facebook posts and comments, I threw my hands up.  I knew I was going to spend most of the day upset, crying... so I went ahead and just started up Netflix. Thankfully,…
