The Glorious of Vacation

Hi Friends,

And now I get to share about the Glorious
Part of my road trip to Waco, TX

I went to visit my friend Susan
We met in 1990 when she and her husband 
Came to Coleville, CA 
He was a Naval Chaplin and lead the little
Church that our family attended at that time

We became fast friends and the rest is history

Here, we were sitting on a street corner
Enjoying a few Feta Fries at a vendor truck
Oh My Goodness, they were delicious!
And I Still lost 2 pounds on vacay!!!!

Now, my friend has been personal friends with
Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper for about 13 years
We had hoped to get together with them while I was in town
But filming schedules and life did not allow
We did visit Magnolia The Store
And YES, I did make a small purchase

Such a cute little store and friendly staff

Bill, Susan, Nora and Matthew

We were in a really cool vintage shop
And ... Don't even ask :)

I've always wanted to take a few shots
Walking down a railroad track

Hanging out on the Waco suspension bridge

Just having fun

A fun selfie in the Very Windy New Mexico Desert
Oh My Goodness, the wind was crazy strong

Couldn't pass up trying on hats
At another great vintage shop
What are friends for anyway, but to have fun

Hanging from a Longhorn Horn
He had too much fun

Another selfie
Sitting and relaxing on the patio

Sunset in far eastern Arizona
On the drive home

Truly had an amazingly wonderful time visiting my bestie
25 years of friendship is definitely a blessing

Praying you all are enjoying a wonderful week
I'm back to work and feeling so much better
Will do repeat labs in the next few days
Praying they give me some better news this time

Find JOY in something Today

  8. A fun post. So glad you got to take this trip. Your son looks like he had fun. Most of my friends have moved south.
    I'm so sorry about the illness. No wonder you felt so bad. How do you get this. Take it easy going back to work.
