Texas Fun

It was time.  Past time.

 

A mother-daughter girls trip was in order- and Mom’s book tour was the perfect excuse reason to sneak away for a few days.  We were Dallas bound for some Texas fun.

I felt like Mom was a “real” author with readers driving as far as three hours (with their 13 month old!) to come and meet her.

Thursday evening was a private book signing in a beautiful old Dallas neighborhood. They could have left me there forever and I’d probably be happy (so long as my hubby and kids could be Fed Ex’d to me there).

Champagne and desserts- who can resist that?

Daniel has been traveling with us Kuersteiner girls for too many years to count. I can still remember him sitting on the bed in his plush white terry cloth hotel room, calling the hotel concierge to bring us aspirin. We didn’t even know that could be done.  Hang with this guy and you will learn all kinds of tricks! (“Daniel Elrod” makes the best restaurant selections and reservations and can accessorize better than any one I know– note the butterfly lapel)

Cutie patootie!

Our new favorite friend, Mary. So genuine and sweet, felt like we've known her all our life.   (She lost her dear dad almost two years ago, didn't know that until we arrived at her home for the private book signing event. )

It was a quick trip (I was there for less than 48 hours) but packed as fun, Starbucks, Off Fifth and visiting as we possibly could.  With the screen writer now working on taking Mom’s book to the big screen I am ready for our next trip. Perhaps Hollywood?
