Happy Birthday to Me!

Perfect pic of bluebonnets Have you ever SMELLED bluebonnets??? Oh, my goodness!! So sweet! No wonder the Bluebonnet is the Official State Flower of the Lone Star State. They’re amazing!!

Bluebonnets as far as you could see…

Fence & bluebonnets

We went for a drive this past weekend and found these gorgeous fields of wildflowers! I couldn’t take enough pictures. My family was giving me the “Come on, Mom” look with each snap, but I was in heaven. These fields were just outside of Brenham, Texas. Can you believe the color?  Feild of Yellow

It was breathtaking!

We were actually on our way to Round Top, Texas ? It just might be the cutest town in Texas. The population sign said there are 77 people that live there. Yes, I said SEVENTY-SEVEN! Adorable!!  I bet the town is pret-ty quiet…..except for 20 days during the year~ Late March/Early April and then again in late September/Early October. That’s when all of Texas, I think, comes to Round Top for shopping. You’ve never seen so many tents! There was furniture, new and old, iron pieces for every purpose imaginable, clothes (the cute boutique-y kind), and so many more things I could not even list. There’s no way to see it all in one day!

I was going for mainly one purpose: to find a hutch for my newly redecorated home office! (It’s my birthday today so I wanted a new piece of furniture!  Yay for me!) We were there 15 minutes, and I’m not exaggerating, and I found it! My husband kept saying, “Are you sure? Because we just got here.” I knew it was “it”. IMG_3456


I was SO excited! The best day to go to Round Top is the last day because they are wheelin’ and dealin’, my friends. They don’t want to take all of that stuff home!



So if you’re ever looking for a fun thing to do with the family or with your girlfriends, Round Top and Brenham are the place to go!
