Ashley's wedding dress came on, so we decided to make it a overnight trip.
And here everyone was telling us we needed to order the dress a year before the wedding. It does still need some altering as Ashley is pretty tiny...and the dress is a petite!!
Early morning as we left home a little after 6:00am.
This photo was after our scare.
It was a very windy drive.
It was pitch black out and a large tree had fallen across my side of the highway.
We were coming over a bit of a hill so wasn't able to see it until the last minute. Luckily for us there wasn't any oncoming traffic and I was able to swerve in the other lane to avoid crashing into the tree.
I have to say, that was a close one, and I took the jeep out of cruise control after that.
Yes, we had a few bumps along the way.
Kristy wanted breakfast from mcdonalds so Ashley said she would treat us all.
We decided to eat on our way
I needed to take my antibiotics with food so asked Kristy to get them out of my purse.
She couldn't find the one set.....so I turned around and went back home to get them.
As I pulled up to my driveway I checked my purse, they were in there.
First stop when we arrived was Hobby Lobby.
Ashley wanted to pick up these heads for a Halloween project we are going to work on.
Here are the goodies I picked up :)
Not sure if the girls were enabling me, or just trying to hurry me up, as Kristy and Heather kept putting things in my basket.
Here are my goodies.
I love these decorative vintage cameras.
They like to walki around this store and see what trouble they can stir up ;)
This time wedding prep was on their minds.
Love the bouquet.
Another bump in the road was that I made a hotel reservation to a hotel in Minneapolis......we are in Duluth!!
When I went to check in at the hotel that I thought I made the reservation at, it was booked, as well as all the other hotels in the area.
Luckily we didn't have to sleep in the jeep, we found a room at an Inn across the bridge.
I was getting a bit hungry when we finally arrived at the hotel/inn, so decided to get some chips out of the vending machine.
Seriously something out of a comedy show, lol.
Never mind me trying to get a can of coke, only to find out it doesn't take dollar bills but only change.
So I start to feed the machine my change...you guessed it, I didn't have enough.
Not only that, there wasn't a change return button. So I ran back to the room to get some change from my girls before someone put in the .20c I needed for my cola fix.
When I returned there was a kid at the machine telling his mom there is a free soda (as that is what the Americans call a pop here).
Even with a few minor bumps the girls and I had a wonderful time.
Hope you all had a Creative Saturday :)
