Yesterday, inspired by the BEAUTIFUL weather and the low mail volume at the USPS Remote Encoding Center, the BFF took the day off from work! She and I had an Impromptu Day of Fun!!! We ate lunch with my Hubbs at a Dillon’s salad bar before Gregg headed back to work and Sara & I immediately headed to….??? Any guesses???
No, it’s not a surprise at all: we visited the craft store(z) – Michael’s, first, because it’s closer. Followed by Hobby Lobby (Hobbs) because it’s our favorite. While at Hobbs, we found our ideal sittin’-on-the-porch-in-the-summer-with-our-iced-beverage chairs!Aren’t they awesome?!? I would get the orange one and Sara would get the lime one if they weren’t so darn pricey… Maybe if they go on super clearance at the end of the season… Thanks to the BFF for snapping this photo!
And, since, we were livin’ it up for the day, we spent the rest of our time hanging out at another favorite haunt, Paramount Antique Mall!!! Could not contain the excitement on this Impromptu Day of Fun!
Usually, while we’re wandering through the antiques, a general theme pops-up. In the past, we’ve found a large variety of teapots, an extensive collection of dolls, numerous pairs of shoes, WAY TOO MANY pink flamingos, insulator caps, mason jars, buttons, windows, etc., etc. scattered throughout the booths. It’s always fun to suggest a theme (items to specifically look for) and then snap photos of those items as you find them!
Yesterday, the theme was SIGNS. These are my fave signs from the photo walk:
This was one of my favorite signs of the day because of the great burst of color! Most of the signs were rectangle, black and white, so it was nice to see this unconventional shape and color: Shh Roses Resting
It was such a great day! Aren’t impromptu days of fun even more fun because they were unexpected??? I think so! I got a few extra pieces of scrapbook paper that I needed for a re-purposing project at craft store #1, got card making supplies at craft store #2, and found an adorable jumbo dice game for Gregg at the antique mall. Got to meander through the antiques and have a themed photo walk. Spent some quality time with my girl, Sara! An all-around, successful day!
Happy for unexpected friend dates with the BFF!
