A New Post

It recently was brought to my attention that I haven't updated my blog in quite a while. Quite true. I sometimes have a difficult time finding topics to blog on when my life pretty much consists of work, eating, and sleeping.

However, with the holidays being a little different this year (this is the first year I'm not going home for Christmas to see see immediate family), I have a new project to blog about. Thanks to my sister's creative idea, I'm on the search for fun items to put in a Christmas present box. Instead of trading requested gifts for requested gifts, my sister thought it'd be fun for each of us to fill a box with items from our new homes. So, I'll be getting things from New Hampshire, and she'll get things from Texas. Fun!

This weekend, I'm attempting to find some of those little Texan treasures, so Randy and I will have to make it a point to go to fun places that represent Texas. While I wish I could send some good Mexican food or a Texas steak... it's not-a-gonna happen (rotten food/meat = not pleasant Christmas gift). Soooo.... I thought this place might have some fun treasures just waiting to be picked up....

It's the Dallas Heritage Village. It's a living history museum, complete with characters in costume and working buildings from 1840-1910. And this weekend is their Candlelight event.... check it out for more info!
