I'd never heard of Hobby Lobby before I started blogging. Never. So imagine my surprise when we drove past one about 30 minutes from home! It was a Sunday, so it was closed, but I vowed to myself that I would return.
And return we did, this weekend. Mister and I had a blast! We picked up a couple of things for the new kitchen. Like the sign. Right now it's displayed in our temporary kitchen.
I wanted to get a magnetic board, since the front of the fridge isn't magnetic. Found this memo board. We've picked out the perfect place to hang it when the kitchen is finished.
On Tuesday I had a day off and visited my parents. I left, feeling very much loved, as usual. My mom made lunch, and sent me home with my very own pineapple upside down cake since we have a makeshift kitchen right now.
I managed to wait about 15 minutes after getting home to have a piece. Then I upgraded to a slab, because I told myself it was like having half a piece of a 2 layer cake......
My dad? Well, he ASKED me if it was ok if he touched up my front bumper. Each front corner was pretty scraped up. One side scraped by yours truly, and one side compliments of Chickie. If you ever saw my dad's cars.....well, let's just say they always look like they've just been detailed. I maintain my car well, but don't really care about cosmetics with it. In fact, I identify it in the parking lot by the symmetrical scrapings on the front bumper. Here's Dad's work. Now it's back to it's original generic look, no longer white and chippy!
Anyway, one of my greatest blessings is my parents' love for me. We always enjoy each other's company, but they truly have the gift of sharing their love. I am truly blessed, and grateful!
Another thing for which I am truly thankful is the fun of White Wednesday. Make sure to check out Faded Charm for this delightful party.
