Saturday Snapshots Week Eight

Sharing is caring!

As you are reading this, I am “on the road again”, maybe still in Mississippi, but heading toward Texas.  Sunday will be spent at the world’s largest flea market.  Hoping for good weather.  This place is huge so I wonder how much we will see.  And buy.  

I love starting a trip with a clean car  – 423 Details, a local shop, has this looking like new.  


Today is Derby Day – well, everyday is Derby Day at my house – my Shih Tzu is named Derby.  But it’s also the Run for the Roses.  I need to find a TV to watch.  It’s something I haven’t missed too many times.

A few of the places we will visit includes Tyler, Waco, San Antonio, Austin and Frisco.  You need to follow along on my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM for lots of fun pictures.  

ICYMI this week:

A recent trip to Atlanta included the COLLEGE FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME and GEORGIA AQUARIUM.  Both are great family friendly places.  We as adults enjoyed it too.



This HOT CHICKEN SALAD is a family favorite from a favorite Aunt.  It’s great to serve hot or room temperature as an entree or on sandwiches.


I’ve got a variety of blogs to share with you this week, a few would make great Mothers Day gift ideas.

Since we hope to EAT AT MAGNOLIA TABLE again, I thought I would share our first visit.

Let me know your favorite things to see and do in Texas, I might have to add them to my agenda.

Hope you have a wonderful week.  See you next Saturday from Austin.  Are you signed up for my emails?  This lets you know when a new post is made.

  1. Enjoy your time in Texas! Round top and Magnolia Table are on my bucket list. We also have a hot chicken salad recipe from a favorite aunt, but uses cream soup instead of broth. I’m going to give your recipe a try as it sounds lighter, which is great for summertime.

    1. I think if you try the broth, it won’t be as heavy or casseroley tasting. Not sure that’s a word. We visited Round Top once and Junk Gypsy’s but not during a sale time. Would love to do that one of these days. Magnolia Table was great and hope we can get in. They now have a new coffee shop at the silos I’ve not been too.

  2. I found several helpful links this week like the one on cleaning using the FLy Lady system. Also thanks for including me…organic garden at bushel and a pickle.

    1. I found a few things, including a wicker head board, but had to pass on that. That place is huge. My poor, clean car got so many bugs on it the first night – it looked sad.
