Everybody's gotta get away sometime . . . .

 . . . and that sometime is TOMORROW!!! 

I can't wait!! 

I am soooo ready to get the  {bleeep} outta dodge and there's nothing like a little change in latitude to really relax my attitude!  A little drinkin', a little dancin' and a whole bunch a junkin'!!  I have been so wrapped up in doing for others these last few months, that doing for myself has really taken a backseat.  And if you don't believe me, just ask my scale - I've got the pounds to prove it - though I have lost 2 this week in preparation for my 'Soul Vacation.'  Yay me!!  Not as much as I 'd hoped, but at least it's movement in the right direction.

Part of my preparation also included making some knock-off cowboy hats that I saw at the livestock show that were retailing for an un-BEE-lievable $75!!!!  Captive audience I guess!

Anyway, my $10 hat from Walgreen's (you never know what you're gonna find there!), a $5 pendant from Hobby Lobby (purchased with the ever-lovin' 40% off coupon of course!) and some scrap fabric was all it took to make this little beauty and shopping must have for Round Top!  After all, the Texas sun gets pretty hot!  And it's pretty stinkin' cute if you ask me!  Maybe even cuter than the inspiration!

I've rounded up a few other 'essentials' for the road as well.  Notice, there are no diapers or wipies in this picture - AMAZING!!  Oh, I know I'm gonna miss that squeezy, little guy and his 'sissy' while I'm gone, but right now I'm even looking forward to that!

So here's a little music for the road!  Carry on!!!


  1. Sign me up! Get the you time in girl! And your hat is waaaay cuter than the $75 dollar one. Seriously, way cuter. Have fun!
