The gals in Harlingen really are a bunch of "Texas Tornadoes!"
This was such a fun workshop..and we were full at 24 students!
One of the things I love about this workshop is getting students to let loose and really play with variety! We worked strictly with pre-cut bricks and squares that everyone cut ahead of time so that when we began, we began big time!
I've uploaded a little slideshow to webshots!

There is also a link below the slide show for you to click through to view the pictures individually if for some reason you are unable to see it.
After the workshop, we drove out to South Padre Island! It was my first time, and though it was a quick one, I'd love to come back some day. I tell you what, if you wanted to gather some girl friends and retreat...even the Hampton Inn had rooms advertised for $22.95 as it is really OFF OFF season right now. If it weren't so far to get here....I might consider it!
We stopped to have dinner at Pirate Landing, yummy blackened red snapper!! It was a windy blustery night, but I loved it! There is something about palm trees blowing in the wind, even in a stormy wind, that just makes me feel like I am in another world. And..I suppose I am! Since I left snow in NC! I feel like I am getting away with something that I shouldn't be....
The weather was gorgeous when I arrived....and the last two mornings, even though it has been brisk, I've been out the door about 6:45am power walking for about 1.5 hrs....feels good!
One funny thing about Texas...Every town has at least one, if not several HEB grocery stores! I loved the HEB when we lived in Waxahachie....
I stopped to get some breakfast things, cereal, yogurt, fruit, milk..and OH OH OH !! They have my absolute fave! Pina Colada light yogurt. This is the BEST, better than the "name brands." There are actually pineapple and coconut bits in it...MMMM! So guess what I had for breakfast today? :cD
I'm being picked up by Jan and her cohort, I'm being shuffled around for a bit of sight-seeing today, and lunch out! So far, we've hit the BBQ place the first night...hit the seafood place last night....and today....I've got Tex Mex on the brain! So that is my request for lunch.
This evening is my lecture/trunkshow, and tomorrow....it's already time to go HOME! Time really does fly fast when you are having fun, as they say!
