Well we started off in the darkness of 6:00am. And if you know me I am not a morning person. I just kept chanting in my head...Archiver's, Archivers...and I was up and out of the house in 1/2 an hour :)
The weather was so nice, we started with the temperature at -1C. Then once we crossed the border 40 minutes later the snow started to fly and it got a bit colder.
Then I fell asleep. I am like a baby in a car.....once we start on a long drive I doze off.
During one of our pit stops, Ashley came out of the stall with this stuck to her foot. I was thinking of not telling her so her sisters could get a laugh, but the mom in me won and I let her know....but not before I got a picture, lol.
I picked up my favourite American treat :) Or at least I haven't seen them in my city.
This is my lap when ever we travel. Wayne is always questioning me why I have to bring so much stuff when we take a road trip. I always have at least one bag...and this one is a biggy. I have a book in there and many different colours of crochet thread, my needles and scissors, as I was making some flowers in between my naps....Plus those crochet balls make a great neck support as I sleep :)
Awww aren't they so cute. Here is Ashley and Kristy. We are at Cabela's here. I think that they are just happy that our 6 and a half hour drive is over.
And here is Heather. She hates to get her photo taken.....but I will get at least one of her this weekend :)
We went to Burnsville mall and I heard all these kids screaming. I looked down and saw this indoor play center. Don't kids play outside in the park anymore?
OK, I know what you really want to know is what I have bought on my trip thus far.
So I won't keep you guessing any longer.
These are the treasures that I picked up at Jo-anns. I think everything was 40% off. I had to purchase some white cardstock, because I want to play with some of my new goodies:)
Here are my treasures from Michael's and Target. I saw this paperclip/rubber band container for a dollar and thought of altering it. The stamps I got at Micheal's and they were on sale :)
A better look at these pretty flowers. I think I can make my own :) That is why I bought them, to figure out how to reproduce them ;)I saved the best for last......
Yes those are some Copics!!!
These treasures came from Scrapbook Too.
The copics were $6.50 each. But buy 2 get 1 free. At home they are $7.50 each, and I have yet to hear of a deal.
There wasn't a big selection of colours but the ones I did purchase I think will blend well. That is why I needed the white paper..to play :) But not only with my markers but my first ever Magnolia stamps. I am so pumped.
Oh funny story.
My girls were walking in the mall and a man stopped them and asked them if they knew the way to heaven.
Ashley replies. No we're from out of town.
I laughed so hard when she later told me this.
Then he went on to ask them if they believed in the Lord.......Like its any of his business.
Hope I didn't offend anyone with this, but I thought it would give you all a chuckle.
Hope your Saturday is going as well as mine is. Off to play with some copics.
