Bloggy Field Trip......






Well.......we went on our much anticipated bloggy field trip Saturday....and in my excitement, I forgot my camera, YES, can you beleive that!!!!!!! Can I tell you how bummed I was.......but you can go here and here to see group pictures, and then later, like maybe tomorrow, you can go here to see all kinds of Im sure quite embarressing photos....I think one has to do with a NUN.....you had to have been there!!!!!!!! Im sure Sharon will have quite a detailed version of the days events!!!!! We all met at Sharons bright and early saturday morning, we are talking 8am.......and YES she had cinnamon rolls waiting for us....and there were gifts...an adorable little purse filled with goodies and yummy marshmellows and chocolate covered pretzels from Sharon...and darling heart socks and candy from Nancy No Blog....then after a pit stop at Starbucks, we (Sharon, Beth, Nancy No blog and myself) headed down to San Diego to meet Tammy and Jeanine no blog.....Im tellin ya, these no bloggers need to get a blog!!!!!!!!...anyways, we made it to some awesome shops, The Country Loft, Fat Quarters, Rosies, and a cool house where they made it into a shop called Starry Crow something, sorry I cant remember!!!!!!! I was too busy checking out the cool grounds and flowers!!!!
We took a break for lunch at a very cool Mexican restaurant, where some of us, Im not sayin who, had margaritas, and after a scary ride TRYING to follow Miss Tammy, we wish that we ALL had had a drink......Im just sayin a certain someone does not like having any cars in FRONT of her!!!!!!!!!!
I found some treasures, lots of patterns, some very cool wool, some crow fabric...and these cool framed little Easter pictures out of wool.....I had to have one, or two....and I just had to get one for a certain BFF back in New England who send me tons of yummy wool sweaters to make pin cushions out of.....
A great time was had by all, lots of inspiration..........and a special thanks to Beth...who is now my personal shopper, for finding a certain quilt kit that I fell in LOVE with that Janine no blog had with her.....I wanted it, looked for it to no avail, but hey, Beth was ON IT.....she found it and I bought it!!!! Then I just mentioned a certain bedpread I was looking for and she found that TOO!!!!!! If theres something you want that you cannot find Im tellin ya shes your gal!!!!!! Shes a keeper for sure!!!!!!
OK, the cupcakes are for another certain someone that Im seeing tomorrow, shall I say her nick name is cupcake and I work with her, and she LOVES cupcakes!!!!!
Today was a beautiful springlike day........hoping yours was too!!!!!!!
