deep in the heart of Texas…

We are back, and exhausted, from our little vaca in Texas.  My hubby’s brother and sister live in Texas and sadly we have never been down to see them.  In our defense, his sister moved in October but his brother has been there for 7 years…I know, inexcusable…

Here’s some photos from a great trip and much needed cousin time…

Up first, Amarillo, TX…

Palo Duro Canyon, second largest to Grand Canyon

The older kids (I include the hubby and BIL when I say “kids”)  got to take a tour of Dallas football stadium and throw some passes on the field.  I hear there were some turf burns and dives made by the kids favorite Uncle Michael…

I did of course sneak in some home decorating that I’ll fill you in on another day…now, nap time!!

T minus and counting…

I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of my slipcovers…I was suppose to get them tomorrow but it got pushed back to Wed.

I’ll be honest, I felt like a kid who was told they can’t open their presents until the day AFTER Christmas…

I still have a list a mile long but have tackled quite a lot…

new handles for my bookcase…I can’t resist a lion with the ring, so classic

I made  some new dressing for the windows, yet again

013

and finally finished the head chairs in the dining room…

014

and finally, plopped my big turquoise jar in the middle of the dining table…my dear friends bought it for me a couple years ago and I’ve never been able to find the right spot for it…

Just a little taste of the goings on around here…
