Our 33rd Anniversary - Labor Day Weekend

Okay so Friday was our 33rd Anniversary. Time Flies when you're having fun. This year we're not going any where special since we just moved into the new house and have plenty to do but we did take Friday off to spend time together. I woke up feeling a little under the weather but that didn't stop me. We had a romantic breakfast for two at this lovely place down the road. Okay so don't laugh...
They have great kolaches and David had a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit.
Told ya we weren't doing anything big this year. After scarfing down our food we headed over to our old house that we hope
to close the sale next week to do a little maintenance and pick up some items.
We ran a couple of other minor errands and headed to Montgomery to
one of our favorite rustic decor establishments. Kerr's Western Interiors on Hwy 105. David found this cool plant that even I couldn't kill. Then again the electricity could go out. They had some cool towels that we might have to go back for to decorate in the master bath and they had a really neat look bakers rack we're thinking might fill a spot in the den. We still need to measure that spot come to think about it. I guess we'll have to go back once we decide.
So off to the next store in Willis off 1097 and I-45. He said he has wanted to stop every time him and the guys go on a motorcycle ride but figured he'd wait until I could go. I'm glad he waited.
They will deal so don't just look at the sticker price.
Texas Star Chair
This place have lots of furniture and wall decor.

Like this 7' Texas Table
We found some smaller night stands for the master bedroom. Ours were too big fit both and the bed on the wall. Yippee now I have a place for my alarm clock and lamp.

Then we were faced with the dilemma of whether to buy a glider with a spot between
for glasses or bottles of adult beverages or, the double swing, or the stationary bench and or a rocker double or single. Too many options.
Okay so we'll have to go back once we decide which one or ones we want. They were very comfortable.

It's a little after 12 and we're getting a little hungry so we load up the
night stands and raced across 1097 to Leroy's Bar-B-Q. Had a couple sandwhich's but some lady across from us ordered a chicken fried steak that looke yummy and covered the whole plate. Maybe we'll have to try one when we go back for the bench or benches.

Well we had time for at least one more store so we headed down the back roads to 1488 in Magnolia to another one of our favorite rustic stores. I don't think we've ever walked out without purchasing something and this time was no different. RND Rustic is a really neat place.
They have it all... furniture, art, nail heads, rugs, pottery, iron work, accessories, bedding..... on and on
David really likes these Dishes and table set
 One day he's gonna just buy them but today he only bought 2 potholders, 2 mitts
along with 2 star trivets.
The trivets look great on my center island just for decoration.

With these purchases made we decided to head home until another day.
Dexter was happy to see us and ready to head outside. He loves laying in the grass and especially with the wind blowing thru his fur.
 Now I on the other hand was beginning to feel bad so I went inside, sat down in the recliner and promptly went to sleep. Poor David. He woke me up a little before 8 to see if I'd like him to fix something to eat. Life of the party that's me.
He also likes hanging out on the back porch and catch the breeze.
The look ...Really another picture of  me

Late Monday afternoon David hollers for me to come look. We can see the smoke from the Magnolia fire near Plantersville. As a crow flies it's about 10 miles away from our area. I took this picture standing in the front yard.This is a little scarey. Instead of looking 10 miles away it looked 1 mile away. Either way It's too close and there's no rain in site for the Houston and surrounding areas. It's hazy and smells of smoke. So ends the holiday and our anniversay for another year. We have decided to renew our contract for another year. LOL. I'd say a new house is plenty of an anniversary gift to us both.

Until next blog........Life is about laughing and living, in good and bad times. Getting through whatever comes our way and looking back and smiling.   ~Unknown~

Today, I visited the beach front with my young ones. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear. "
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
crab inside also it pinched her ear. She never desires to return back!
LoL I understand this really is entirely off topic but I had to share
with someone!
