Vacation Pictures of the Family!!!


Well vacation was fantastic and now it's time to get ready for school, plus prepare for major project for me.
We had to cut the vacation short due to my hubby's work, but 4 days was enough just to relax and getaway.
We decided on Corpus Christi, TX, Padre Island.

We decided to go with a Townhome instead of a hotel.
I highly recommend getting a rental on the Island.
It's easy to access the beautiful beach..

View Townhome

We were located right on the lake, Kayaks were also available. 

At night we'd sit out here and look at the fish jump out of the water..
So Cool!!


Mo looking at the Lake


So Pretty!

Girls in the pool..

The Townhome was Fantastic..
Just enough room for the 4 of us..
This is a picture of it on our way out.. 

Stairs to loft

Loft bedroom

Both bathrooms were nice..


 As soon as we hit the door, guess what happened?
Mo went to sleep..
As you look through the pics, this was an on going thing..
LOL

After the dead had risen, we went to "make grocery".
 (New Orleans term)

HEB plus, had the greatest things. They actually had a Sushi Bar and I mean workers making them for you right on the spot, Cheese Bar, Bread Artisan's, etc..
We picked up a couple of things and stocked our fridge well for our 4 day stay..




The Townhome was located right across the street from the beach. All we had to do was pack our snacks, juice, beer, towels, blanket and we were ready to play..


Viola!

On the 2nd day, we just didn't feel like being at the beach. Nile's toe was cut, Laila was in her teenage-feelings, Mo thought it was too many people an I wasn't feeling it because they weren't feeling it...
So we packed it up and went to dinner.


Well as you can tell, they felt better at dinner..
LOL

So Beautiful!!



So we tired it again the next day and it was a BLAST!

 Playtime!!

It was soo nice, I had to put the camera down and take a dip..

I don't know what I'm doing!!
LOL

And we're off!!

All packed up and ready to go..

She wanted Deer Jerky, so she got Deer Jerky..

They didn't like the Star Buck's, Cotton Candy Frapp, they said it wasn't better than my DIY one on the under the tab drinks, but as you can see she's halfway done..
LOL

We had a fantastic time together on our little Va-K..
I'm so happy to share these pictures with you of our journey..
Hope you like the pictures..

But
Until Next Time.....

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..  
Ingredients below:

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

Girls Bedroom Series: Part 3 DIY Pillows..

Hey Everyone!!! I'm back with another post on my girls bedroom design. Well, my husband and I frequently go to Wally World and browsing through the fabric section. On this day particular day I walk right passed it then turned my head to the right and in a split second. Like a child a running across the street without o any guidance. I was hit by this fabric. I was soo overjoyed, I couldn't stop talking to the lady who cut my fabric. She just smiled and nodded, she was probably thinking I was some crazy person.  I DID NOT CARE!!!! 😁😁

She $7 a yard and I only bought one. If it was $30 a yard I would bought it too.. I wanted this material. It actually a home decor fabric just what I needed.
I looked into my stash at home and found these 2 quarter yard yellow fabric squares, plus the rope from Dollar Tree. 



Step one: Measure your rope by putting the fabric around it. I measured 3 inches..



Fold fabric the inches you measured then iron flat for a good cress.
