Too much of a good thing isn't always good

We got an early start this morning. Sharon picked us up at 8:00 am. It took us less then an hour to reach the US border. It took about 4 hours to get here.
We did make a few stops on the way. I love stopping in on the cute shops along the way. But because we left so early most of them weren't open yet. We will check them out on the way home. I love the quilt shops
When we came into town the first place we stopped at was this store.

It is a scrap booking store. I really enjoy browsing in here. It has a lot to offer. Unfortunately they don't have any Tim Holtz stuff.

We did Miller Hill mall and a few other stores so far. We are staying at the Bridgeview in Superior. We always stay here.
We went to Red Lobster. We always get one meal here, as we don't have one back at home. We love it. We also ate way to much. I brought my left overs back to the hotel. I just finished eating the rest and am stuffed so full its not funny. I don't even want to move. LOL
Sharon and I ran into Menards so she could get some dog treats to bring back for her dog (don't even ask LOL). Well there was a worker there, I assume she was on her break as she was sleeping at a high table. I went up to her and pretended to shake her awake and bang on the table. Sharon almost went pee pee in her pants. Good thing the lady didn't wake up I would have felt a bit silly LOL.

We are just going to relax the rest of the evening and watch TV. I will check in on some of my blogging friends. Maybe read a bit of my novel. And if I have time maybe crochet a bit, as I picked up a couple new colours (oops I'm in the States.....colors) of crochet thread.

Having a good Monday, hope you do to.



  1. Wish I was popping into those stores with you expecially the scrapbooking one, we are really short of good supply shops here. I hate that feeling when you are full to bursting but I know how it is to want to eat yummy food so a catch 22 on that one. Enjoy your days away x

  2. Sounds like you're having fun on your visit to the states! Enjoy!

  3. REMEMBER ME! Holy you love your US shopping! Red Lobster where you live. So sorry, I have one 10 min from me.

    Hey, I heard my husband is flying out there for business sometime soon? He's got 4 trips between here and the US coming up.

  4. Awww...I LOVE Red Lobster....but my hubby doesn't eat seafood - so I never get to go. Grrr. Now I have a craving.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
