Mistletoe, Magic and Roses Part 2

After mom and I left the craft fair we went for a stroll in the rose gardens. Peak time is October but they still looked pretty snazzy.

I hadn't walked around there since I was little. I really have to get out there more. I remember coming for my cousins wedding and for the parade with my grandmother once a long log time ago...when I got to meet the Rose Queen. That's right I said's a BIG deal :)


It really is amazing.

Mom loved the red ones 

Just beautiful.

The original old part is my favorite.

Sorry for the fuzzy picture my camera died.

Look how bright these are...


From the top of the little hill

The David Austin are the most amazing smelling! These are the kind I have in my yard but in a peach color.

Paid my respects to the Queen.

Said goodbye...such a beautiful day and a wonderful breath of fresh East Texas air.

Floral Friday

Happy Friday!! I am traveling today but I took these before I left they are some of my favorite Tyler roses around my house. They were going strong so hopefully they are still there when I get home.

By my kitchen sink

In the living room

On the entry way table

In my bath room...the color is so vibrant!

And last but not least on the dinning table. 

And here is one from where I am staying...I almost passed out!

Happy weekend! I have my annual girls weekend starting today so looking forward to some Mexican food and pool time...adios.

Weekend For My Soul

This weekend was filled with way too many events but we got through it and had a wonderful time! I am not a huge fan of no rest on the weekend I think it's important to recharge from the week. This weekend I realized its also good to recharge with a shot of everyone you love...and the exhaustion is worth it.

Started with. Going away party for my best friends sister who is in return like my sister, she is moving to Seattle and its hard on all of us! So what are we to do?? Drink and dance yup that should make us feel better ;)

So we did and we realized things have definitely changed since we used to go out but one thing hasn't much fun my friends are!!

Then it was time to head to East Texas to celebrate my little sisters birthday so we packed up the dogs and drove through the random summer storms.

Till we arrived here... The entrance to the magical forest seriously how beautiful??

We sang and ate our selves silly. Then had a nice long visit with family it was good for my heart.

It was quite and late before we headed home to moms house.

I slept like a baby and woke up to great coffee and real bacon...

Yup sometimes I want the fat!! And my favorite blueberry muffins ... Thanks mommy!

We lounged around and visited while mom looked at the paper and the dogs begged for bacon.

Then we headed home but not with out a stop to see my favorite rose guy.

Love love!

The rest of the day was full of house cleaning, laundry and these little beauties Super Man found for me to redo.

Can't wait to turn them into something fun. 

It was an eventful, exhausting good for the soul kind of weekend that makes your feel alive. 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too Happy Monday!
