Black Friday or This....

how many of us love driving around to see the lights?

yes, we all do.

especially me.

in some Houston areas the decorations of the homes exceeds the decorations

some of the big homes are lit up from each side of their lawns to the street with
lighting spectaculars.

& it takes a crew of people, all professionals, to create some of this magic.

& it is magical.

last night Post Oak Boulevard
(our Rodeo Drive)
hosted about 250,000 people to watch the carollers, + all the other entertainers,
the lighting of the boulevard with 100's of Christmas trees,
Santa arriving by helicopter (only in Texas, we know)
and then a big, beautiful fireworks display.

this marks the beginning of the holiday season in our city and,
therefore, for me too.

& it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas !!!

I have a 2-hour playlist of Christmas music playing, hopefully for your enjoyment,
it's mostly instrumentals with some well-known singing voices.

Happy Holidays, everyone of you, my friends.
my life has been made so much better by all of you.



  1. We are so lucky to have such beautiful lights in Houston! Last night we could even hear the fireworks and see a glimpse thru the trees with the lighting on Post Oak! Love taking a drive with hubs and taking in all of the lights while listening to and singing Xmas music!
    All of this shopping hype leaves me a tad cold! I much prefer the ideas in your first pic!
    Thanks for highlighting our beautiful city,Marsha!
    Neighborly hugs, T

  2. Hello love. You know that I have already made comment of your lovely playlist! I played The Splenderosa List in the kitchen while Mr D and I were cooking and packing the savories for travel to Thanksgiving dinner.
    Everyone wore blue in honor of the Seahawks.
    Your playlist would be perfect music for a night out in the lights!

  3. Will be heading to Princeton to see the tree lighting with family and extended family! Its chilly here but walking around and enjoying the sites should keep us warm, wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  4. Hello! I love your blog! Could you tell me where those cards come from? Thank you!


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, each of them mean so much to me. After all, the interaction is the reason we blog. xx's
