Wednesday Hello

Just a quick check in...

I have a lot to pack in this beautiful day. Literally and figuratively.

I leave bright and early tomorrow morning for TX. I'm frantically doing laundry so I have something to wear.

The last four days have been so much fun. I am excited for my visit with my mom's group, but I am also a little sad to end this time with the kids and The Mister. We've visited the botanical gardens, had bagels and coffee, shopped, played in the yard, gone on walks, painted cabinets while the kids rode their bikes, watched movies and generally enjoyed the relaxed pace of just being together.

I am going to miss it next Monday morning when we all go back to the general routine.

I hope to post over the next few days, but if things are more quiet around here, its because i'm hanging with my peeps. I am excited because not only will I see my mom's group but I will be staying with the Ant Ranchers Wife on Thursday. 

If you've read my blog long enough, you'll know that one my favorite places in North Texas is the Ant Ranch. Its just the most relaxing place to be, and the people who live there are some of my favorite Texans on earth.

The Ant Ranchers Wife has graciously allowed me to invite a few friends over tomorrow night for a little visit. Very excited about that!

Also, on Saturday morn I plan to meet a blogging buddy. Kelly from Simplistic Treasures and I have plans to get together. I love getting to meet bloggers IRL (in real life!)

All right, the laundry isn't going to do itself. Although I keep waiting to see if it will.

I also have HUGE plans for making it to Central Market. My favorite grocery store on the planet. I will not be coming home without tortillas and coffee. I guarantee. 

All right. I gotta get on with the day. Y'all have a great end of the week and weekend!

Happy Wednesday!

I'm jealous you're going to be in the homeland. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. And if you're sad about coming back, remember you have a peep or two here that enjoy your company as well.

Now I have fun things to add to my list of Things to Do next time I'm in the North Texas area. I've never even HEARD of those places!

I hope you have such a fun, relaxing, laughter-filled trip!! Bring back plenty of stories to share, please!

Oh, enjoy the Tex-Mex food for me, please. I only lived in Dallas for a summer, but the food--it was awesome. You take me back to my pre-kid days...Let me bask here for just a moment.

Okay. My laundry pile isn't doing itself either. I wish that were my superpower.

So glad you're getting time with the girls, and that it's on the heels of such a lovely time with the fam.
