Hello! How have I not blogged in over a week?! The days are just flying by. A few friends and I started a sewing group and we are meeting once a week to sew and it has been so fun! I'm a little addicted to making ruffle pants now though. That is what has been filling all my spare time!
My mom and I decided to go to a World Market that is 3.5 hours from me. We had never been but heard great things about it and wanted to see for ourselves! We loved it! It is such a fun store!
It was described to me to be about the size of a large Old Navy and that was a great comparison. However, I am sure they are all different sizes. After we went to World Market we looked on the radar and saw snow was coming so we decided to go to Crate and Barrel and then head home. Well, ten minutes on the road home, we saw this.
It was almost immediate and was a mixture of snow and ice. After we drove/slid 3.5 hours and had not even made it half way, we decided to pull over for the night. Unfortunately there is about two choices of hotels between here and there.
We picked the choice with doors on the inside of the building but it was still not a pleasant experience. We had nothing but we were able to make it to a Walmart to get a toothbrush, pajamas for Reagan and some baby food.
The next morning the roads were pretty clear so we came straight home to take showers and eat lunch. :)
Now, on to the fun part! Here are some pictures of my finds.
I can always use chalkboard labels!
I just love this cute kitchen towel and these bird wooden spoons.
I've lost several measure spoons (how does that even happen?) so I picked up a new set and some fun jars.
I don't need a sugar and cream set but I will probably use these to hold flowers or just use them for display somewhere.
I got Westin and Reagan an Easter basket. I might attempt to sew liners for these!
My favorite find was one I didn't even plan on getting but when I saw this rug, I couldn't pass it up.
We needed a new rug in our kitchen and I just love this one.
Overall, we had a wonderful adventure! Reagan couldn't have been better (well, she could have slept all night, but who would in that crib?) and we have a fun story to tell. :) World Market was great, although they didn't have any Valentine stuff out yet (or maybe it was all gone) and I am already looking forward to going back! But probably when the weather is warm and no chance of snow. :) Thanks, Mom for always being willing to go anywhere with me!
