South Texas Balloon Festival - Don't Say Hurry This Weekend

"You always know about events, you have so much fun with your girls, you get around..." This is what I get told a few times a month from friends and family. One word: PLANNER!
I love my planner. I don't know how long ago it was, but I know it was after my father past away, that I began to enjoy life. It usually happens when something significant happens in your life and you see how precious and short life can be.

And if you are new to my blog I recently changed the name to "Don't Say Hurry." Because it was something my dad use to say when he had days off because he just wanted to enjoy his time off and enjoy his family. I kind of also made a commitment to myself.... if it was written down in my planner I was going to do it. So many times in my life have people let me down and left me high and dry even after they said they would help me or whatever the situation was.

So that is what I do now... I read the paper, I look on facebook, visit our local library and I see how much there is to do in the valley (it annoys the heck out of me when people say there's nothing to do here), and most of it is FREE! So I write everything down on a sheet of paper first then if I need to discuss it with the girls or hubby I do and then write down the things we ARE GOING TO DO!

----------------------------

Seriously, like the best weekend this fall!! (Besides Thanksgiving weekend and being able to spend time with the family and stuff your face!) Hopefully you are able to attend and support one of these awesome events....
