Shopping and some Yummyness

We are still on our mini vacation.
So no video today. I was working on a Blooper's Take 2 video. But ran out of time. Hubby wants to leave early in the morning and I need my beauty sleep :)

Here are some of the things we did today.
Stone Cold, lol. I always call it this and it drives my family nuts. Mind you I don't think I had enough caffeine in my system today and I kept calling it Stold Cone. LOL. Ya they all have a laugh on my account. Hey... they always have a laugh on my account!
Like I told them they think I am funny, not what I say so much as to my dopiness. Oh well.
I swear working here you get a good work out. The way they mix the ice cream, I bet they all had sore arms the first week on the job.
Shopped all day today.
Went here for supper :) We don't have one in our town, so it is always a treat to come here. I get the same meal every time. Shrimp Trio, with pina colada sauce. So yummy.
I know you are all just dying to see my crafty treasures. Here they are. I went to get a news paper for the Michael's flyer. No flyer. So I went to get one in the store, and the teller was nice enough to give me one that a customer left behind.
When I went to Michael's the family stayed in the jeep. I guess they aren't as excited about my purchases as I was. While I was in there 2 women asked me for my help. The first one asked if I scrap booked. Then asked about some cutter for her daughter. So I helped her. Her phone rang and she didn't even say thank you. Nice....not.
The second lady was so sweet. She asked about inks and embossing powder. Then we got to talking about art and creating being our passion. Her phone rang and she kept talking to me. I could have talked longer, surprise, surprise. But the fam. was waiting for me :) Isn't that paper gorgeous. I got it at Walmart. It was only $5.00 a paper pack. Okay, I know I didn't need any more paper for the rest of my life, but seriously how could I have passed this up.

Here are a few goodies I got, non scrap booking :) I thought that book would be a quick summer afternoon read. I grew up reading all her books, so thought I might be able to relate to the stories in here. Remember Forever? My girlfriend, Nancy would go through that book and read the good parts out loud, lol.
Hoping your Sunday was a creative and relaxing one.



  1. OMg You did it good girl. A lady after my heart. Cold stone, red lobster and the crafts shops. It would be my birthday for a day like that. LOL
    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEE the paper! I am going on wed to look for that butterfly paper. I haven't seen it. My whole room was pink carpet with flower bedding on white and butterflies in every color. Mainly swallowtails but beautiful real looking butterflies. Long before they were the in thing.
    can't wait to see the bloopers. You are funny anyway. LOL
    Not nice of that Lady to say thank you but so very nice of you to offer to help. I am glad you help us!
    No video for you today but I posted like a good/bad girl. You will have to read it for yourself. LOL
    Have a safe trip back girl.

  2. Yum!
    Those bloopers will be fun to watch. :)

  8. I love Cold Stone, cheesecake ice-cream with heath bar yummy yummy in my tummy! I had those two paper stacks. My favorite is the top one with the butterflies. I made mini's out of them and gave one away already. The one with the browns and the butterfly I am still working on :0)

  9. That sounds like a perfect day to me!

  10. Mmm, I love Red Lobster, but not as much as Abie. It's her favorite place to eat. Did you have to take an empty suitcase to bring home all your goodies?

  11. look like you're having fun....and thanks...I've only been craving shrimp for ages!

  12. Maybe I need to take the family when I go craft shopping...hmmm that would keep the bill down...nah! Thanks for sharing and glad that you had a great time out and about.

  13. Yeah for new scrapbook supplies! Love the punches. Looks like you are going to have some fun new stuff to play with.

  14. Happy Monday, Tracy,
    Glad you had a good trip to the states. We have a Cold Stone here that I have never been to, find it too expensive. Wish we had an Olive Garden, a Red Lobster and a local scrapbook store. Looks like you found some pretty paper. I survived another weekend at work. We had fun birthday celebrations on Friday evening. Had some day surgery today and off for the next week. Have a great week Tracy.

  15. Oh..I have that paper pack from Wally's. In fact It's just about gone. Beautiful lush brown colors. Can't wait to see how you use it.


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