Be Careful What You Say

Good evening everyone.  Hope all is well with you this Wednesday evening.  Just wanted to drop in and share a  phone call I got yesterday from my Mr. P.   As all of you know Holly and Darbee love to GO... Where you  might ask,,, well it doesn't really matter.  Just anywhere as long as it is in a car and there is a road.  But what I haven't truly been honest with you about..... they get it honest.  BECAUSE,,,, Mama /Nana  is just as bad.  I love to go.  Don't get me wrong,, I love my home,,, but going on a road trip is just so much fun!  I have always teased my Mister and told him anytime he got ready to go somewhere just give me 10 minutes and I would be ready.  Wellll....
Late yesterday afternoon I got the call.  Bless his heart, he did give me more than 10 minute notice.... He ask could I be ready to leave out this morning on a road trip.  His work was sending him to South Carolina.  WooHoo!!!  I was thrilled.  They had told him around Christmas he would be going Jan 2. but then canceled the trip.  But  it was back on.  I called my girls, and had them come out.  You know I had to see them before I left the state.  They came for supper.  ( good thing I had a big pot of soup in the crock pot)   And then I got busy. 

So tonight I am so excited to be in South Carolina in a suite with my honey.  Does anyone know of any prim shops in SC ?  Tomorrow I will be out roaming while the poor Mister is working.  Wow,, what a life.  I have a big bag of crafts to keep me busy in between shopping, and I have no chores to do for quite awhile.  Yep, I did have more than  10 minutes to get ready.  But,,, you better bet when that car cranked this morning, there was one happy lady in the passenger seat.  So.... will be visiting you from my temporary home away from home for the next week or so.   We are only a few miles from Charolette, NC also.  Any one know of shops in that area?? 

There you have it.  All of you know what my plans are for the next few days.  Want to come and join me?  Take care, be safe ,, until next time.

  13. Found you blog surfing,and enjoyed your comments. I love road trips. One of the first things I do is google shops where I am going. When I stop for gas or eat, I will ask a friendly local what is special in their area. I have had a lot of good surprises, a few bummers too. I notice we have a mutual friend--Amy at Bumble Bee Lane. Drop by for a visit.

  14. Try Nanbrook Farms in Lincolnton, Splinters and Rags in the same area, and I heard the Depot is a great antique mall. I also heard of a shop called Peddler's Crossin'. Have a great time and remember to share if you get to see any of these shops! Dawn

  15. Oh wishin I was you right now Angela..don't have a clue about shoppes down in SC as I have never been there. Hope you have fun. Take care, Janice
