We are having a wonderful time in San Antonio and it is hard to believe we have to get on the plane tomorrow to head back home. We have been shopping, eating (a lot!!), visiting friends and family and just plain having fun!! Ashley took off from work while we were here so that made it even better. We started out having Mexican food the night we arrived and followed it up on Thursday at the River Walk and having Mexican for lunch. We also took the water taxi tour down the river - something I have not done in years. Thursday night, Ashley had tickets for us to go hear Jeb Bush speak at Trinity University (her college). He was very interesting and spoke mostly about educating our children. Friday we went to San Marcos outlet shopping .... spending 1 1/2 hour in the Vera Bradley store!! Later we went to Austin to meet a friend for drinks, although when she arrived and ordered water, we knew something was up! Yep - she is pregnant and we are excited for her and her hubby. Next my nephew, his wife and new baby joined us and I got to see Jack Frost IV!! What a cutie!! Saturday we visited a couple of the Missions in San Antonio and got a Nat'l Park Service tour of one of them where we all learned some things. Sunday after church, some of Ashley's friends came over and we cooked out and visited. The little ones went swimming but the water was too cold for the adults!! Last night we went to see The Hunger Games. It was really good!! Today we drove over to Gruene, about a 45 minute drive and wandered around in and out of the cute little shops as well as doing a bit of wine tasting. We have eaten a little of everything - Mexican (of course) 3 times, Rudy's BBQ, Italian, Thai, Texas Chicken Fried Steak .....!! Diet starts Wednesday!!
Before I left I made my Monday Mailer cards. Here is one of them.
This is a white on white card. I stamped the flower from Fresh Vintage first and then used the Designer Frames Embossing Folder to emboss around the flower. I stamped the little border from Fresh Vintage in Concord Crush as I did the flowers in the stamp set. This was a fun card to make. All items came from Saleabration! This is the FINAL WEEK to take advantage of the great Saleabration items.
