I am so excited! I am going to HOUSTON, TX this summer for a conference with one of my Assistant Principal's, some teachers and support staff. We will be there for a few days in June...We will be staying at the Hilton Americas Houston. I have already done some significant research and I plan on stopping by Funny Fur to pick up a few goodies for the Furbabies...but I need some help! Given my limited time there I am wanting to know where and what I must not miss...any local BESTS would be appreciated (best restaurants, shopping venues, museums and or local/downtown attractions?!) If you have any ideas I' d really like the help. If anyone knows any Lilly or Lilly-like boutiques, please let me know! Based on last years experience our free time will typically be after the conference seminars which should end by 3 pm each day. Last summer a few colleagues and I went to Nashville, Tennessee. We went to President Andrew Jackson's home (The Hermitage), passed through Vanderbilt University and ate local Bar-B-Que. Yum! While there of course, I made it point to stop at 2 amazing dog boutiques, Posh Puppy (it has since gone out of business) and Lucky Pup...It was tons of fun and I want to take advantage of visiting another wonderful state...so please let me know your ideas and recommendations!
