Yummy food and creative goodies :)

Started our shopping day with a healthy breakfast of fruit and dip.
Okay, honestly I also had one of those cream horns from last night as well ;)

First stop Archivers :)
I forgot to print up my coupon from home and at first she wasn't going to give it to me.
Like seriously Archivers couldn't afford my $5.00 off my pricey purchase. I understand rules are rules. And I didn't question her, I was just going to leave my purchase there to see if I could print one up at the hotel.
Then she said she will give me a generic code of my savings on one of my purchases.
I know more paper packs that I don't need, lol.

We followed the girls as they went to their stores then it was time for lunch.
My favourite place to stop for lunch is the Crepe Stand. YUMMY
Sharon had strawberry, I had banana caramel and the girls each had banana and chocolate.
YUMMY, oh did I say that already ;)

Isn't this so pretty. It is a dress made out of paper invitations.
Now that I think of it, I may have shared this before on an older post.
But its just so pretty.

Before leaving our all day adventure at Mall of America I had to hit up the Peeps Store.
Can you believe they didn't have any ducky peeps :(
But I did get a couple chocolate covered peep. Now don't go hatin' Dena ;)

Then off to Red Lobster for dinner :)
We wanted to get there early, so we gave ourselves plenty of time to get there.
But Lola (our GPS) and Sharon, my SIL, just couldn't get it right.
I had Kristy telling me directions via Lola and Sharon giving my different directions.
Finally I had to say (a little firmly I may add) okay only one person at a time.
I have to say, Sharon got us lost, so we put her in the back seat. Kristy came in the front with Lola and we found our destination, lol.

Last scrapbooking store was Scrapbookers Too.
I'm hoping I don't have that Magnolia magazine, lol.
Heather told me I should get the Tim Holtz die cuts. Good taste eh? :)
I think next time I may get the small dies like this. I am running short on American money, and I think the girls would rather eat a few meals while we are here, lol.

Here are the stamps I picked up at that same store.
That purple thing in the back is some honey comb paper. It will open like those 3D paper wedding bells. So when this paper is cut, you attach it to the inside of the card, so when the card is opened, the shape you cut spreads open in that 3D shape.

So that was my Day, no shooting, no quads falling off vehicles, just getting lost in heavy traffic.
As Sharon was heading out to have a cigarette, Kristy yells to her, "Don't get killed eh", lol.
Thats what I call smoking at your own risk, lol.
We are heading in the hot tub now as Sharon needs to ease her aching muscles. I have to admit I do to, lol.
Plus I am sitting here with my new track jacket on freezing, as these weirdos have the air conditioning on again. Seriously what is wrong with these people, lol.  That hot tub sounds so warm and relaxing. We just need to clear the little kids out of there, lol.

Hope you all had a creative Monday :)
I so want to play with all my fun new goodies.

  20. Wow - so many fun things! You are going to be busy for awhile breaking in these new stamps and inks. My Archivers in Nashville would take my coupon on my phone so if you have a smart phone and can show them the email, they can take the code that way! Just for future reference for the next trip. :)
