McKinney, Texas Home and Garden Tour

Just spent the last couple of days in Texas with my BFF, Rochelle. 
She's the beautiful blonde in the picture. :)


We made our way to McKinney for the Home and Garden Tour.
It was spectacular!

Just look at these gardens....


We had the best time! 

There were gorgeous gardens, sweet and inviting homes, and friendly people everywhere!

One great bonus of this trip - got to meet Valarie of Glimpse of My World.

Hi Valarie!!

Stacey,
Can you believe I didn't get to go? I'm sick about it . We went to a big party Saturday night and I had major issues getting myself and what I was taking, ready. Then the Hubs took my car in for a little look see (it was making some weird noises). And on and on. I'm sure that never happens to you.:) I'm so glad you got to go. Thanks for sharing your lovely pics with us.

Claudia said...

First Stacey! You are both beautiful ladies!!! I love love that yellow door-I've been wanting to change my red to yellow for a while and since my house is the same color grey I think this is definitely next project! I was afraid to do it until now - Thanks for posting!! Looks like a great place to spend a day with your girlfriend! Have a great week - Sincerely, Jeannette
