I need to remember today, Friday, in 2016. That is when on August 4th my driver’s license will expire. Why? So that I can renew BEFORE it expires online and not have to do what I did today…
Go to the dreaded local driver’s license bureau and wait in a line, first outside, then on one side of the room inside and then on the other line on the other side of the room for THREE hours in order to renew my DL!! A poor lady I chatted with said she had went at 7:15 a.m. and the line was out the door, down the sidewalk, around the corner and oh, out to the main road! So she went home and came back at 10 a.m. which is when I went too, and it was only to the first corner in front of the building, so I was LUCKY!
Anyhoo, that’s NOT what my vintage PINK SATURDAY is about! Ha,ha! But I’m seriously one who believes that if you have to suffer through days like this, that you deserve to TREAT yourself well doing something you LOVE after you finally escape!
So I went to McKinney, TX, to their historic downtown and went to antique shops, a sweet gelato shop, and a store I love with German glass glitter and a smorgasbord of utter beauties at Smitten!
In the antique store I found one of my weaknesses….
The stress began melting away!
I opened it up very carefully to see the various stories, ads and this beautiful page…
and a bonus…
Also lovely were the local announcements of marriages, and bragging rights too I’m sure!
to gaze at the beautiful Victorian style homes in McKinney
and like any dreamer, I noted my favorite and looked it up online
later in the evening.
I think that the gorgeous lady on the front of the magazine would have been right at home in this 1895 beauty…
You’re ready to purchase, just as I am, aren’t you?!
Here’s the best, the kitchen and the bathroom is updated…
ant the whole scoop? Here’s the listing RIGHT HERE
After drooling and considering a big move :>)
