Happy Texas Independence Day!

Texas Independence Day is the celebration of the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos.

"Texas is a state of mind.
Texas is an obsession.
Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word."

~John Steinbeck

"Entertaining at Home" is fun!

Oh did I have fun hosting a Taste of Home's "Entertaining at Home" party a few weeks ago! Have you heard of it? I love Taste of Home - we go way back! ;-) Some friends are Entertaining at Home consultants. To host - I mailed invites, opened my home and provided refreshments. The consultants did everything else. So fun! And check out my goodies...

them. :-)

The best part? The party earned me $50 in free product, 3 half priced items and no shipping charges. Pretty cool. :-) All the guests also got a February special free gift with purchase. And since most of the things I chose were on clearance, my "Entertaining at Home" goodies cost me all of $20 ~ total. Definitely worth the effort. ;-)
and host a party today!
