We are out of town on our annual mini vacation with Parker.....always right before school starts...Just a few days of anything Parker wants, anything Parker wants to do and anything Parker wants to EAT. Tonight that means renting movies at a NICE hotel and room service... after a swim. His life is ROUGH.

I have no clue where the summer went. Tomorrow a few hours at market..then to check out some GAME STOPS. He loves it that Dallas is the headquarters for GS. He brought some of his old games to trade in and I think he is pretty sure what that does not cover, he knows someone that will.
Then off to see some movies at the theater along with a stop at the Cheesecake Factory (his favorite)! We also have a special ritual going to CENTRAL MARKET and WHOLE FOODS and maybe SPRINKLES. This is only funny because we are not even the real healthy kind of eaters....Going to those two stores is not grocery shopping, its an EXPERIENCE. We love seeing what other people have in their carts. We are nosey like that. I wish I could bottle these special times with him. At eleven and a tween, it is not going to be cool to travel with Grammy and Pop many more years.

He just drew for the two BOOK WINNERS. He IS my OFFICIAL BLOG assistant.

The first BUNCH goes to LISA at KSSNNIKKEL

The second BUNCH goes to Georgie at Decisionally Challenged


Hopefully I will be showing you some Christmas previews in the next week or so, plus I am going to have some guest posters. If you LOVE CHRISTMAS and would like to do a post and showcase your blog, leave me a note in the comments.

Hi Teresa! Good to hear you are having a good time in Dallas! I don't know where the summer has gone either. I will tell you though, I'm kind of ready for school to start. I want my computer back!! I am sitting here in the middle of 3 boys playing video games. I'm trying to list some Etsy Store items, it's hard to concentrate with all the noise. Your grandson would fit right in here. Chase just turned 11, can't believe it!

I think I will try to go to Dallas in Sept. I found alot of samples last year.

Try to stay's supposed to be 104 here tomorrow. It's just unbearable!!

Good Morning Teresa, So you go to the Dallas market as well? Kristen and I met there in January for a short while just so we could see each other in person. I just go to the Jan. market.

Lucky Parker! I'm sure you make some fabulous memories with him. Do you take trips with each grandchild one on one?
