Hey you all!!
This is the craziest week, and I feel so dumb for my poor planning. BUT I am so happy for all we did!!
So, McKinley had been saying for quite a few years ( she was really little when she started) that on her “Number 10” birthday, she wanted to go to the American Girl Doll store. Well, after 9 rolled around, I thought I better check into it. We originally thought Seattle would be closest, and my aunt even offered to take us in Chicago. But Texas won out when my cousin suggested that. I’ve never been to Texas and it was on my (small) Bucket List.
So we went! And we had such a great time. My cousin has a daughter just a year younger than McKinley so it was perfect for them to be together. The AG store was amazing – I grew up drolling on the dolls back when they were Pleasant Company. So when McKinley was old enough, we got her a Bitty Baby. And now, we are in trouble!!
Just so you know, it took us 3 hours to DRIVE to Billings and neither of our two flights were that long!! lol We flew to Minneapolis and then Austin.
I loved the large guitars!! What a welcome. The heatwave? Not so much!! HA!!
McKinley loved seeing all the STUFF in person. SO worth the trip!!
After that, we enjoyed some down time with my cousin and her family. And she took us junkin' where I found the motherload of Fiestaware! Darn that distance!! I would stock up!!
Look at those chubby legs!! (On Torri, not mom or McKinley. HA!!)
Best way to spend a Friday night in Summer!
So another place I wanted to see, was Roundtop Texas, home of the Junk Gypsies! I love them and I was so happy to see Large Marge on the side of the road!!
This is the bathroom! WOW!!
And then, after a day relaxing it was time to go home!! And we were ready! Vacations are fun, but home is heaven!!
We started back to school on Wednesday, so today was a very awesome FRIDAY to look forward to!
I plan to spend some time in the craft room today and will be back to share with you all soon!!
