The day is almost here!!

Tomorrow morning we head for Tennessee and then Wednesday me and DD will go on to Indiana to see Nines and her family. We are all very excited!!

Today instead of staying home and doing something useful like packing, I decided to run over to Montgomery and go to the big mall there. I was looking for a pair of sandals that our Sears store here didn't have in my size. Got there and tried them on and didn't like them as much as I thought I would. The strap on the back was as tight as it would go but still kept slipping. Ended up finding some other at Parisians that I liked just as well. Also found a couple of shirts and a cute tan denim jacket - all on clearance!

Also hit Kudzu Blossom Quilt Store. Fun, fun, fun. I went there to by my mom a birthday present. I can't tell you what it is on the off chance that she might read this before I give it to her. I will make sure to take pictures to share with you.
When I came home I sat down and sewed the binding on Nina's quilt - at least on the front. I will do the other side tomorrow night when I get to Mom's house because I don't have any red thread to do the other side. Nothing like putting something off until the last second!

We started packing my CRV for the trip - starting with one of these.

A friend gave us her kid's old one right after Christmas. My kids are really too big for it so we are hauling it up to my parents house for my niece and nephews. DH had to remove all the wheels and the back cargo piece. Now the problem is I don't have much room for everything else! The kids will have to sit with their feet on their suitcases but I think we should make it. The big question is will Papa be able to reassemble the Gator before my nephew Joey has a meltdown over it!

I will try to post some pictures from Nina and mine fun adventures. Have a great week!

I like that it has seat belts. Alex climbed up on his tractor the other day and put his foot on the peddle and it scared him. LOL

I hope you have a great time on your trip. How fun to see another quilting friend! The car looks like a lot of fun. My daughter always wanted one of those, but I was too cheap to buy something so expensive she wouldn't be able to use for very long.
