Well, our weekend in Wallis has been busy, busy. We almost got married, scrapbooked, went to a live auction, a cook-off, craft show, seen a car show, met the Mayor and attended the Fun Fest. I’m not sure how many people can pack all that into one weekend except us. Let me recap what all happened.
First off, we showed up at Premier Estates which Cyndi has been taking her scrapbookers “Cyndi’s Scrappers” to for several years now. Fantastic place with great customer service. The owners Sharon & Belinda are the BEST!
Check out this beautiful carousel horse they used to decorate the front of the house. They have a great style and use several items like this and repurposed furniture to decorate the quaint retreat facility.
We headed over to Las Flores for some dinner and drinks. (She had two margaritas so I might just get lucky tonight!)
We started walking around the city when we spotted their water tower. It says Wallis around the tower. I’m not sure if you can read it or not. From our point of view on the ground it is very far away. Can you imagine how long it would take us to climb up there?
After wandering around for a little while, we stumbled across the Wallis Fun Fest. Man there was a ton of stuff going on. So we went over to the car show to look at all the sweet rides.
The best (and worst part) came after we met the Mayor of Wallis, Steve Bockel. You see, I asked Betty to marry me . . . well sorta. We were at The Wallis Fun Fest when I met the Mayor. We talked and got to know each other. I told him I love his city and plan to come back frequently. Then I introduced him to Betty. That’s when he said, “You guys look so in love, as the Mayor of Wallis I could perform a ceremony and marry you two!” I thought it was a great idea so I looked at Betty and before I could say anything she gave me a piece of her mind. She told me if I couldn’t put in the effort to buy her a ring and get down on one knee (not sure how I’m going to pull that off) and ask her personally instead of passing it off onto the Mayor of Wallis then she was just going to live in Sin! She was very adamant about it. I guess it’s too soon for her to take my last name so it looks like we are still . . . Betty Booty and Donny Dimples!! By the way, naming credit goes to Sharon and Belinda of Premier Estates.
After that she wouldn’t even sit near me. She had us in chairs as far apart as possible.
Oh well. I think once I get her back to Premier I can butter her up a little before going to bed. It really was a great day and a great weekend. Can’t wait to come back again next year.
