Hello sweet friends,
If you’ve been following me along on Instagram you’ll know I was in the yellow rose of Texas. It was interesting weather; quick bouts of rain storms, lots of clouds and a heck of a lot of humidity.
All just to attend the Texas Pinner’s Conference?
The Texas Pinner’s Conference was in Arlington, Texas.
I went primarily to the Pinner’s Conference to network and learn more about blogging. Of course I dragged along my bestie, Annie. It also just so happened to be my birthday week. Wednesday, September 12th, I turned 49.
The highlight of my trip was meeting my new friend Carol from BlueSky at Home and hearing KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms speak about blogging.
I could not find the picture of Carol and I but KariAnne and I are below.
We started in Austin to visit my other Bestie Dawny, then after two days went to Waco and lastly settled in Arlington for the Pinner’s Conference.
The week or so before I left for Texas I was so thrilled to read a blog post from Rachel Tedoro on “20 places to Visit in Waco, Texas.”
We followed her recommendation and almost shopped until we dropped. The only place I felt that she left off the list (which we thankfully drove by on our way to Arlington from Waco,) was Junky Monkey.
This store is amazing. Don’t forget to go upstairs and outside and check out their junk. Holy guacamole…. need an old window or an old door????
I’m off to Tennessee this week for the launch a A Maker’s Studio. I am excited and certain it will be a trip to remember.
Where are you traveling these days??? I’d love it if you left me a comment below.
Have a great day sweet friends,
