Hoegarden is here! Hoegarden is here!

That’s right. It’s time to pack up the board games, nail polish and booze and head to north Texas for our annual “girls only” estrogen festival known as Hoegarden. Four generations of females will descend on Sister #1’s house for three days of mani/pedis, chick flicks, board games, antiquing, shameless snacking, fruity umbrella cocktails and one-handed croquet. If you’re in the area and are overrun by a large herd of boisterous females, I apologize in advance. We may be loud, but we’re a lot of fun and completely harmless. Our snark is worse than our bite, I promise. I’m out until Monday doing my girlie thang. Have a great weekend, everyone. Photos and stories to come next week, so stay tuned!

Travel Tip: See the Oregon Coast

Years ago, my in-laws took an RV down the coast of Oregon, and for years after, they shared stories of that trip and how beautiful it had been. Two years ago, The Complete Package and I decided to follow in their footsteps and drive the Oregon coast. We don’t own an RV, but a rental car works just as well. You see, it doesn’t matter how you get there, you just need to get there. Give yourself at least one week. Two would be even better. You’ll understand why when you get there. Don’t try to rush it. Scenery like this should be savored and deeply appreciated. And you will definitely want to linger.

This story is dedicated to my father-in-law who passed away 2 years ago. Thanks for encouraging us to get out and see the world while we still can.
