This past week we were able to jet down to Tejas for several days to visit our families before another hurricane came. We made it there last thursday night and started off the weekend right with dinner with the family at "LOS CUCOS" mexican restaurant. YUMMMY this place is my fave and the food is devine! Sorry Okies but it eat and poops "TEDS ESCONDIDO" by far.
I must admit I'm a hustler and I'm obsessed with making fast cash! So on Friday morning I had a garage sale at my mom's house and sold a bunch of my sister's stuff since she is moving to DFW and needed to de-clutter. Brad helped me before heading off to his brother's by giving me some good sales tactics to reel the buyers in. here are a few: Wave when the buyers are doing the drive by, makes them feel welcome and encourages them to stop. Greet them and be friendly when they walk up the driveway. Make them want the items by commenting on them like "Those books are some good reads" "That shirt would look great on you" "Aren't those shoes cute" and "Buy three get the fourth free!". I didn't make as much as I'd like bc I did it on Friday and I had to split the proceeds but it was still fun.
We then left to the beach house late friday night and woke up Saturday. My dad and I rode bikes around looking at the local real estate and checking out the beach. Later I headed down to the beach on my own and laid out for about two hours and read "TWILIGHT". We all came back later and swam, boogie boarded, dug for crabs, buried eachother and just had some good clean fun! I love visiting our family and can't wait to go back !
Monday my wonderful photog sister took some great shots of Bro-Bro just playing with Buster her dog son and some profesh one out in her back yard...check it out.
P.S. I'm really bad at taking pics so most of them I stole from my sister...sorry issy
