Over the weekend I saw tons of people showing their love and offering condolences to Destiney Carey who was tragically killed Thursday afternoon. Carey was a local designer responsible for a number of beautiful clothing items worn by Killeen women and models.

Destiney Cannon was a successful business owner of High Sadity Boutique. Her daughter, D'Zira Cannon, told KCEN the following:

"My mom just always wanted to be happy. She was always a fun person to be around. Her laugh just lit up the room she was everything. My mom was a hardworking woman.  "he took care of all six of us. She was a nurse and she had two businesses in Killeen and was getting ready to set up her third location in Dallas."

Facebook Tributes

While scrolling on Facebook, I couldn't help but notice the tributes in Carey's honor, including her last message written on Facebook:

There's going to be a balloon release scheduled for this Wednesday, April 13th.

We send our heartfelt condolences to the family of Destiney Carey.

Wow! What I Saw When I Turned Left Inside Buc-ee's In Temple, Texas [PICS]

As the saying goes... everything's bigger in Texas.

Having said that, I've never seen a gas station with more than 50 gas pumps.

Then I visited Buc-ee's.

What is Buc-ee's?

If you don't know or have never visited the popular one-stop highway shop that has over 35 Texas locations in Texas, you need to!

You can get everything in Buc-ee's from gas, to keychains to candles to brisket to goat milk soap and everything in between.


Buc-ee's Has Expanded

According to their site, Buc-ee's, not only has multiple locations here in Texas, they have expanded to southern states like Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.

The World's Largest Buc-ee's Coming Soon

Later this year, Buc-ee's has plans to open "The World's Largest Buc-ee's" located in Sevierville, Tennesse. It will have 120 fuel pumps, a 250-foot car wash, and 74,000 square feet of indoor shopping.
Yikes!

I've Never Turned Left

In almost 7 years, I've been here in Texas, I've never turned left when I went inside a Buc-ee's.

I either walk straight to the bathroom or turn right to get water or gummy bears or chocolate almonds. (I get the same thing every time)


But yesterday, I decided to turn left and (I know I'm late) I was mesmerized!

For starters, I never had a reason to turn left.

I've visited the one in Waller County, Bastrop, and the Temple location.

Every time I've visited Buc-ee's, I've never had a reason to go "shopping" always a bathroom break and then back on the road.

So here are some of the cool things I saw when I turned left at Buc-ee's in Temple, Texas!
