New Blog Design- I'm so excited about my fall blog design. I've wanted a fall blog makeover for the longest time but I wasn't sure if it was possible to have a girly fall design. My friend Danielle at, The Design Girl, gave me an early birthday gift and re-designed my blog for fall. I LOVE it. I love the colors and my favorite part is the vintage brooches. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Danielle! Danielle is now designing digital scrapbook kits, which can be used for your blog design. Check out her store here.
Fall Vacations- My favorite time of year to travel for pleasure is the fall! Here are a few reasons why...
1. I love to visit cities that have a real fall with great weather & pretty scenery. Even though Texas has nice days in the fall (last night it was 58 degrees in SAT... amazing), we also have really nasty days.
2. Kids are in school. I won't say anything else about this one. ;)
3. My birthday is in the fall.
4. By saving most of my vacation time for the fall, I have something to look forward to and plan for all year.
In years past I've taken one big trip. For example, last year I went to China to volunteer at New Day Foster Home. Other years, I've taken a few mini trips. This year I've decided to do a few mini trips and I'm so excited.
In November I'm going to Nashville, TN to visit my blog friend, Amy. Surprise Amy, I'm coming!
In December I’m heading to NYC with my sister and two of our best friends for our annual Girl’s Trip. Well, we don’t take the trip every year, but we try. I guess December is winter, not fall.
Our 2006 NYC Trip
In December Danielle is visiting me in San Antonio for a long weekend. I can't wait for her to see Texas. I've made a detailed itinerary for her visit~ just ask her about it. I've even scheduled time for Hobby Lobby. Danielle told me CA doesn't have a Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-a, or a Sonic. Can you imagine? However, CA does have Trader Joe's, Pinkberry, and In-N-Out Burger. Danielle wants to try a Route 44 diet coke b/c every time she's talking to me, I'm ordering one... gotta love happy hour at Sonic!
