A Little Friday Adventure

 I started out the day at the Boosterthon.
I was able to get a picture of Hayden and his friends.  Henry avoided the camera entirely.  Beautiful weather and the rest of the day FREE!  After the activity, I decided to help out Miss Ashley and visit the opening of a new store in McKinney.  Understand, this is quite a sacrifice to go down on the old Town Square where there are shops and shops of beautiful and fabulous things!  Ashley, I'm doing this for you.  Unfortunately, I was met with  . . .
and this!  Crap - it's Oktoberfest!  It's already hard enough to find parking down here without all the added confusion.  Ok, calm down - this is for Ashley.
 A few shops and a pair of shoes later I found it!
 Ok, going to the door and inside I find . . .
 Kendi and Bryan!
 They listened to my whole crazy lady story of coming down on the square to help my niece and blah blah - and they still let me take their picture. And a few more.
Isn't the shop great?  I did find a dress that I really wanted, but I'm too fat for it now.  I promised Kendi and Bryan that I would be back in three weeks (after some serious working out) when I will hopefully be able to zip it up properly.  They agreed.
 So, I didn't score at Bloom, so I went and drowned my sorrows at my favorite treat shop.  Mom & Pop Candy and Popcorn Shop.  Love, love, love this place.  It is an old time candy shop.  I never leave empty handed.  (I guess I'll be visiting Kendi and Bryan in six weeks).
 I went across the street to one of my favorite shops - EVER.
 Everything is Frenchesque.  Some of their Christmas goodies.
 Love these ribbon roses.  
They have tons of French linens.  This bedding is precious.
I grabbed a sandwich at this fabulous little eatery and headed home.  Good-bye, Oktoberfest!  Thanks for almost ruining Ashley's adventure.  I guess I'll just have to go back when the streets are clear again.

  1. YAY! I'm so glad you went. Thank you thank you. Seriously. This is almost as good as going myself. Someday we will go there together.
    p.s. I hope you get the dress! i'm sure it's gorgeous because Kendi has awesome taste, and so do you.
