New Houston Tradition

This year was my first time to experience the Houston Nutcracker Market in Reliant Center. If you've ever been to a Home & Garden convention, this was much like that. I was in Heaven!

It's a four day market that featured 323 national and international merchants selling gifts for the entire family, including: home décor, gourmet food, garden, clothing, sporting gifts, novelties, accessories and Christmas décor. All proceeds from the market benefit went to the Houston Ballet Foundation. My friend Lindsey & I went together and did a little damage. Next year we are going to come prepared with a list now that we know everything that this market has to offer. This is definitely a new tradition that I am gladly adding to the coming years. :)

In other news, my mums survived! It's a miracle I tell you. Everything I plant usually dies within weeks of me planting it.
We had a nice weekend of shopping and spending time with friends. Even though KSU didn't due so hot against MU. :( There's always next weekend!

  13. I had some mums and they didn't last very long. One of them was picked on everyday by Carson so that didn't help. He was always sayng pretty flower and picking them to give me. So how could I have been mad at that?

    That marketplace looks really cool. Back in Overland Park they have a KC merchant that looks like that. It is open to business owners only and have everything you can imagine. I usually go there every Jan to replenish on jewerly for the day spa that we own.
