Texas Serendipity

November 16th, 2008

The first part of my trip to Texas was all GIRL time!  Left to right in this photo are Tex, me, Jess, Taylor, Lori, Jenn and Sharon.tx-girls-at-the-lake.JPG  This trip was the serendipity of intersecting vacations!  It went something like this – Curt and I were wanting to plan a vacation for October or November.  One of our options was a trip to DFW to visit Megan and Gary – we’ve been talking about doing this for 3 or 4 years.  At one point I had hoped to go to the Copic training in KC back in October to meet up with Lori and Sharon, but then that just wasn’t working out.  One day Lori mentioned that she might go visit Sharon in November and a little light went off over my head.  I asked Curt if he’d like to go to Texas and he said “SURE!” so I called Lori to see if she was really headed to Sharon’s.  WooHoo!  Then I remembered that Jess had been talking about visiting her parents in Dallas, so I called to see if she might be able to make her trip coincide with ours.  About that same time Lori talked to Jenn who said she’d either drive over or maybe hop a plane.  From there it took a little finagling around hunting season, a marathon, the SASI holiday release, a DH birthday, a wedding, and several other things, but we were finally able to make things coordinate.  Sharon was so gracious to invite us all to stay at her lovely home.  She truly was the hostess with the mostess!  And since Tex was just about 45 minutes away she was able to hang out with us as well.

Now the whole Taylor thing…well let me just say that’s just about the most surprised and dumbfounded I have EVER been!  I had mentioned the trip to Taylor at one point and said “you should come”, but she never really seemed interested and I knew full well how busy she was with TE/SASI so I didn’t push.  When she jumped out from behind a pillar at the DFW Airport you could have pushed me over with a feather!  That little sneak!  Oh and she actually brought cupcakes in adorable handmade boxes – how cool is that?!  No one knew about her coming except Sharon.

If you were reading my blog back in the Spring when I first got my perm you know how much I love Curls Rock products.  Well it was Lori and Jess that got me started on them.  Since Taylor has naturally curly hair we made her try them too so we could take a “Get Kinky at Sharon’s” photo.


Unfortunately my perm is getting a little worn out so it’s no match at the moment for my naturally curly friends! LOL!  I’ve already scheduled a root perm to fix that!

I got to spend Wednesday night through Friday night with the girls.  Friday afternoon Tex took us out to see her FAB studio (my pic there is blurry unfortunately) and to Hobby Lobby (my first time there) before going out to dinner where Curt met us when he got off his flight.  I’ll be back late with more about the *me and Curt* part of the trip – I need to take some more pictures.  Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my travels.  I really need to make myself a travel journal!
