Hubby and I have never paid much attention to bed and breakfast options when traveling. We're usually on our way, in and out of a hotel, and we usually have the kids with us. But, this fall we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary and decided to take a no-kids vacation. This meant we could pick a destination and stay a while. We knew we wanted a cottage on the beach, but arriving on a weekend meant those were pretty booked up. Not wanting to book just any hotel for our special getaway, we opted for a bed and breakfast. We found The Guest House Bed and Breakfast at Gulfport Landing in Gulfport,
No really. I'm a huge fan, and have been since I got to enjoy Harry Connick, Jr's music in a small private concert in 2010. I was as impressed with his musicians as I was Harry's crooning. His new album, That Would Be Me, is such a mix of peppy make-you-dance tunes and fall-in-love-ballads. I can't seem to listen to it all at once, because it just covers too many moods and I'm a sap who likes to listen to music that fits my current mood. So, one day I listen to all the slow songs, and the next day I dance to the upbeat songs while cleaning the house. Having often wondered if I was born in the wrong
If you're using WordPress 3.0 or above (please tell me you are!) and are using a compatible theme, you're probably ready to learn about the custom menus for WordPress sites!

Near the top select a menu from the dropdown, or click 'create a new menu' to get started. If you create a new menu, name and save it. On the left you'll
A friend of mine posted this song on her blog a while back. I've always thought it was pretty, but never took the time to look at the lyrics and figure out what they mean. Then this week in our Bible study we were talking about the Bible characters whom God called friends, men after His own heart, those He blessed immeasurably. It doesn't take long to find out that these men (and women) were quite ungodly at times! David commits adultery and murder, Jacob tricks his father and brother, Noah lies around naked, Jonah gets angry with God, Peter denies his Lord, Joseph brags, and Sarah convinces Abraham to
We recently had the chance to enjoy the In-Touch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival! It was our first time, and the first time any of us had seen a hot air balloon launch. It was definitely the highlight of our weekend! Unfortunately, some strong winds from the north threatened to blow all the pretty balloons toward downtown Dallas which would have been really dangerous, so most of them stayed grounded and once the announcement was made that no more would be launching, we left the park. I did not get to enjoy the balloon glow or the fireworks, but I was pretty tired of sitting on the ground and
All my life I have loved hot air balloons. They fascinate me and the bright colors always make me smile. A few years ago I learned that there is an annual balloon festival - The Plano Balloon Festival - less than 2 hours from where we live. I've wanted to go, but something has always come up. This year, thanks to tickets from a client of mine, I get to go! And not just me... My whole family. I am so excited and I can't wait to share the photos with you all!
