Trip to LNS!!



I went shopping with my friends from work; Erin and Dora Lee, Erin brought her 11 year old son and Dora Lee brought her 14 year old daughter and one of her friends. :(
I don't really "like" kids; now don't get me wrong; I love my daughters and grandkids and some of my friends kids are alright, but I absolutly don't babysit, never have and never will. I guess I learned that from when I was married to Ashley's dad and he was in the Army and we lived on base and most of those Army wives had 3-5 kids; I had 2 girls and took them everywhere with me. We were at the mall for 4 L O N G hours; I was ready to leave after 1 hour...lol I just wanted to go to my LNS I thought of it all day.

Dora Lee drove her own car and I rode w/Erin; so when we left the mall and went to my LNS Erin & her son said they'd wait in the car so I felt kind of rushed; even though she said not to rush; she's bought one of those electric cigarettes and wanted to read & play around with it. I havent' been there since Aug 22...that's a long ass time!! I just don't go to Springs much; it's only about 45 mins from Pueblo.

Anyways, my LNS has a punch card so that everytime you go in they mark a little box with the amount (minus tax of course) you spent and when your card is full (12 spaces) they add up the amount; mine was $370; then you'd get 10% of that amount off your order; my card was full so I got $37 in free stash!!! I was soooo happy. I got some threads, and this cute chart from La D Da I've been admiring for a while "Count Your Blessings", and they didn't have the called for material so I choose a piece of 32ct. Natural Brown Linen; it's really pretty and I think it'll look nice on there; then when I was checking out the material I came across this 32ct. Belfast Platinum material; I don't have any idea what I'm going to stitch on it; but I sure do love it. I just had her cut me a big piece. Then I hit the buttons...I don't know about your all but I LOVE LOVE LOVE JAB Buttons!! I have a lot of them and just can't stop buying new ones..then I saw this cute needle magnet that I looked at and put down and had to go back and get it because it would be one of those things you see and don't buy and then just think about it all the time and how you should have bought it..LOL I had fun and sure wish I would have had more time in there; but then I guess I would have spent more than I did; I only ended up spending $24 out of pocket...now off to stitch; sorry about the blurry picture...
