I'm back! Now this post is chock-full of pictures just be warned! Now I'm not talking 10 pictures! Tons! For me at least, so much fun to go back and see! Hope you enjoy too!
Note: Please know that my brain really freezes on names and I'm embarrassed as heck to not remember. I would be so honored, if you are pictured here, if you would be so kind to take the time and email me your name so I can include it. Please know that I truly apologize up front!
|Me at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. You can tell the Xanax is starting to do it's thing! Buggy eyes! LOL!|
We flew into Long Beach Airport. What a cool airport. It's so small you even walk out on the tarmac! I thought that was so cool! Doesn't take much for me!
Touchdown and it was off to meet Carol from Scrapadabadoo.com. Carol Hester truly is the most laid back coolest lady I have ever met.....Well, let me take that back on the Laid back part...Kathryn Kreiger wins that title! LOL! But Carol takes second place. So easy going and such a pleasure to be around! You just wanted to hug on her!
