Don’t Mess with Texas

They came from hours away. Through traffic and work and finding babysitters, they came from hours away to make this tour happen.

And they came bearing sweets!!

Biscotti and cupcakes and king’s cake. Oh my! Did they ever bring the sweets.

See, they say everything is bigger in Texas, and after my very first trip out here I can now attest that it’s true. Because the hearts are bigger. The love is bigger. Heck, even the cakes are bigger!

So nobody better ever mess with my new friends in Houston, TX. Because they love like the mean it. And if you mess with them, I will come back down here and take care of you myself! :)

HUUUUUUUUGE Texas thanks go to Ms. Christine Tremoulet & her partner in crime Brittany for letting us use their beautiful space for the workshop!!

These gals were there all the way from LOOOZ-iana and they brought us a traditional southern sweet: king cake. Where apparently they bake a tiny plastic baby inside and whoever finds it has to bake the next one. This was slightly disturbing to me. :) :)

Me & cutie petutie Lacey Dagerath who took generosity to a WHOLE new level when she brought us a $100 gift card to Starbucks. WHAAAAAAAT?!?

Lonestar Hugs & Kisses,

    I would like to ask again – "Is there such a thing as having too much fun"?
    Those Texas smiles are BIG too!!!

    Thank you again *SO MUCH* for coming to Houston! I still think I’m the luckiest person in the nation, getting to see you guys on tour twice in one week!

    I’m so motivated to be a Doer right now, I can hardly stand it! But I’m not letting myself be paralyzed by the overwhelming sense of it all. Oh no, I’m making lists!

    You guys are so awesome. Thank you again for EVERYTHING!

    You guys totally rocked!!! I keep telling my husband, "Well, Mary said…" and "Well, Justin said…". I was truly amazed at how much info you guys packed into such a short time. I walked away overwhelmed and awed knowing that if I wanted something to happen, I have to make it happen. If you’re thinking about taking this workshop, DO IT!! It will change your life into something UN-Ordinary!

    AH-MAZING! We had such a great time! We came away with so many ideas in our minds, and so much to implement! We were excited AND exhausted by the end of the evening. It was a jam-packed workshop and you guys shared so much of yourself – truly from your heart! Thank you! I loved hearing the history & the roots & the stories – the sacrifices made, the dreams achieved. Sooo inspiring!
