Oh Friday, you know how I love you. Oh Friday, you know how I love you even more when it's Autumn and there's fun stuff to do while Young Boy is at school. Yep, today was a perfectly fine Friday. Sweet Sister & I took a 2-hr. road trip. Ahh, pretty leaves, tractors out in the fields, the perfectly perfect Friday morning.
Our destination? The McMaster & Storm Studio Sale. Tell me, how do you make a little shed look like a lovely brick & mortar store? Well, Kara & Darcy can do it! This little sale did not disappoint!
Right in here is where it happened. The phone rang. It's school. "Your son just threw up on the steps...can you come pick him up?" Well, what's a gal to do when she's two hours away? Call Daddy, of course.
Sweet Sister & I decided we must push on. Carry on with our adventure. The McMaster & Storm ladies had recommended some fun stops, so we felt the need to oblige. First stop, two antique stores...well, junking stores. I got some buttons...and a snip of crocheted lace.
Second stop, this crazy-cool Ben Franklin store. Straight outta the 50s, it was retro. It was a throwback. From hair nets to candy to underwear to fake flowers, they had all of your old-fashioned needs.
Then on to Bear's Mill. Beautiful building inside & out. Granted, I was carrying a little Mom guilt around with me there.
Last stop (well, really it wasn't the last stop. The last stop was the KitchenAid store, but I didn't take any photos there.) Lunch. Sweet Sister knew of a "famous dive" in the area. Mmm hmm. Our family gets excited visiting little greasy spoons.
What made this establishment oustanding? Look for it...
Yep, a GUM wall. Crazy stuff.
All in all...a lovely day! I'm thankful for it. It's now 2:30am and I'm snuggling my sick-boy on the couch. Daggone it, life is good.
