There is no place like home! I had the BEST time EVER in Houston but it is good to be home. I have actually been home since last Monday. I was soooooo tired when I got home. I had to catch up on sleep. Then, I had a little accident which delayed me posting. I washed my iPhone in the washing machine. Yep. For the record, iPhone doesn’t seem to be a big fan of the washing machine. I can laugh and make light of the situation now, but I did have a few days of mourning first. LOL. I have a new phone and was able to recover most of my photos from Houston, although the picture quality isn’t the best. iCloud is now my new best friend.
I have so much I want to share about Houston that I don’t know where to begin. It was an amazing trip. I guess I will start from the beginning. First of all, Nick and Lisa Bongean treated me like a rock star!! They were very gracious and very generous. They are also the hardest working team I know. I got to experience first hand all the hard work. It takes a lot of work and long hours to have the success that they do.
I left for my trip super early!!
I took this photo in the car on the way to the airport. Yikes!! I think I woke up at 3 AM to get ready. Normally, I would just throw my hair up and go, but since I was going directly to Market, I had to look decent. Lisa had a Town Car waiting at the airport to take me to Market!!!
This is Juan my driver. I think he was trying for a big tip because he thought I was significantly younger than my age. At one point he asked if I still lived at home with my mom and dad!!! Right.
I knew the convention center would be big, but I had know idea. It was baffling to me.
I know the pic quality is terrible but you get some idea. Look at how small the cars look parked in front. The convention center is like a city block long.
I arrived on the last day of Market. You cannot enter without a badge. No going to the booth to pick it up either if you leave it there the night before. 🙂
It is overwhelming. I didn’t know where to look first. To be honest, I walked around in a daze just trying not to trip over anyone or any thing! It is a miracle that I remembered to take any photos! I did manage a few, but I am running out of time for posting today, so I will post some tomorrow. 🙂
Thank you for all the kind compliments on my last posts/quilts!!!! Made my week to read each one!!!!
