March 31

I had a great birthday yesterday. As you may know already, I live in the boonies. I always tell everyone the nearest McDonalds is about an hour away with mostly wheat fields, deer, elk, cougars and game birds in between. The town I live in has 650 wonderful people but it's not much on the shopping for crafts side.

So my husband took me to the big city (The TriCities in Washington) for dinner and some craft shopping!! First stop was Michaels. I did a lot of looking but didn't find anything that I really needed. I did pick up a few stick pens and found some photo boxes for a project. I was excited about those two items. My husband went to Sportsman Warehouse.

Next, Craftware House. This is one of my favorite stores. I bought everything from the Big Bite Crop-a-dile to cowboy up paper for my two boys I scrap for. I found some Heidi Swapp Ghosts. I've been looking and looking for them! My husband took a nap in the car.

Then we went to Costco which I love. I bought some groceries but I mostly I looked and looked.

To top the day, we went to Red Lobster for their Lobster Fest. Heavenly!!!

Thank you to all of you followers!! You make my day with your comments!!

Happy Birthday, Candy! Sounds like you had a great day! I am impressed that your husband let you shop while he waited - he must really love you! Not many are that patient!

Candy - I'm glad you had such a nice day! At least your hubby didn't follow you around the craft store aisles trying to look interested and not focus on the prices or his watch like mine does. Happy birthday and many blessings! - Michelle

I am glad you enjoyed your birthday - if my husband took me on a shopping spree his credit card would be completely overdrat, lol
