What a weekend!

What a weekend at the Simple Goods show!  That's all I need to say about that...
Just kidding.  Robin is a SHOPPER, I am a PACKER, and Lori is LORI!! and she's the driver.  We had a great time, we got lots of good stuff, and lots of inspiration.  We drove through a snow storm in West Virginia, a storm of blackbirds in Ohio and then stood in the 20 degree freezing cold for 2 hours to have this one of a kind weekend.  It was the best.
And now I am home to LAUNDRY!!!!  Just another day that I am thankful for!
now for the 5
-  I love getting away, but I really love coming home, even to laundry. 
-  I have to great and FUN friends in Lori and Robin, thanks girls
-  natures beauty amazes me
-  My Bella is done with soccer, she did great and the team did great.
-  I love Mondays, the kids all go back to school : )

And this is Robin and Lori and Sherry on her scooter, waiting in the freezing cold to get into Simple Goods!
