...and we are greeted by a cow...in an astronaut costume. LOL!!!
I am riding in a yellow taxi. I do not do that very often.
I see Houston!!
We have a really big room at the Residence Inn. I even have my own TV.
We are out exploring. Look at this train. It is very sleek.
Katrina is with us. Oh that's something I should tell you. We are in Houston for Quilt Market 2012.
This is Crystal of Frivolous Necessity. She makes a lot of quilts for our store. She came to visit us because she lives near Houston. This is her little boy. OH my is he CUTE!
We have discovered there are a lot of smokers down here. So this is how I wear my scarf when we are out walking. But then we just found this park.
All of a sudden it got really cold. So we went to Macy's. It is right across the street from our hotel. This is Hannah. She was so nice. She helped me find a good outfit to sleep in:)
And then I found a nice fur lined vest too. Haaa, I matched the fire hydrant. I've never seen blue ones before.
We stopped at the desk to get extra blankets.
LOL my mom took our picture in the elevator mirror. Look what else I found...a snack!!
You will never believe this...This is Kelly. She used to live right across the street from me. Now she lives in Houston, so she came to see me. I had to put my Ohio State bear in this picture because Kelly went to Penn State and we are playing each other in football on Saturday.
Kelly stopped and got us pizza and salad and we ate in our hotel room. She works for Marriott too, but at a different hotel than this one.
I was showing her my new iPad that my Grandma & Grandpa got for me for my birthday.
Then we were taking funny pictures of us.
It was just about time for her to leave, but first I had to show her my iPod songs. Thanks for coming to see me Kelly!
OMG!! Look at me in my new warm pajamas. My mom said I look like the Peptobismal snowman!
I'm nice and warm. Time for bed. Goodnight!
Good morning!! Look who is here. It is my little blogging friend Arabella!
She is so cute! We love each other all ready.
Look at us. We both have trach scars. Little Bella just had her canula removed. My mom calls us warriors. Just a month ago Bella was breathing with a ventilator and now she is breathing on her own.
She kept looking at me and I was thinking we should take her home with us.
She is so much fun. She made me laugh.
Bella has a big sister. Her name is Joy. We all have Down syndrome.
This is Joy with Joyce. Their names almost match!
This is their newest little brother Alex. He is so cute too. It was time for the Turpins to leave. They were so nice they brought us a Texmex lunch. It was very good.
Now we are off to...
Wowzers this place is HUGE!!!
Oh my how stinkin' cute is this. I know my mom is trying to figure out how we can take this camper home with us.
Here is Me and My Sister. No not my sister. Her sister. You know Barb and Mary. They are sisters and they design things together. And they are so funny!! My very first quilt was made with their fabric.
This is Jill Finley of Jillily Studio. She is a good friend of mine too. She and my mom talk alot about her son and me.
This is Patty Young of Mod Kid Boutique. She is a designer for Michael Miller Fabrics. She is really nice and she is short. Me too.
I could not leave without seeing Moda Mark. He is my budy from Ohio!! He works for Moda.
And here is my very good friend Kate Spain. She asked me if we could sit together at dinner...
Did you see me put my headphones in my ear. That was to block out some of the sound. It was too loud for me.
Look at this dessert. Chocolate cake is my favorite. I ate it. And then you will not believe what I did next...
Oh yes I did. I rode a bull!!!!!!!
Oh no...he is starting to go a little crazy...
Oh this is sorta fun...until I fell off...
guess it's time for some dancing...
Wow that wore me out. Guess I better sit down. It looks like this lady is coming my way...
It's a Reba McEntire. "Hello, nice to meet you too. My name is Sarah," that's what I said.
OMG!!! I hear my favorite song...
I love line dancing. How do you like my new jeans? They are from Downs Designs. I Love them. They are perfect with my new cowgirl boots!!
I LOVE this picture!!! Sweet Home Alabama!!!
I am meeting so many new people. This is Susan Fuquay. She is the publisher of American Quilt Retailer. Katrina thinks I am a celebrity. No not really, I'm just Sarah.
This is my new friend Heather. She is really sweet.
OK Last Call. That means the party is over. Well almost...
