So here was the conversation (super duper condensed version) from about 2 weeks ago.
ME: Shellie - there's a quilt show in North Chili in a few weeks... want to go?
S: Sure - that would be fun.
A few days later...
ME: Shellie - Mt. Pleasant is having their anniversary sale the same day as the quilt show, want to go?
S: Sure - that would be fun!
A few days ago...
ME: Shellie, you've not been to Material Rewards yet, have you? Why don't we drive all the way there (about an hour from here) and then work our way back, hit Mt. Pleasant and then the quilt show. We could even grab breakfast at the diner.
S: That sounds doable!
During the midst of my Thursday/Friday work chaos - the texts flew...
S: Do we want to deal with the crowds at Mt. Pleasant?
ME: Do we want to drive all the way down to Material Rewards?
S: Should we just go to the quilt show?
ME: Do we want to leave early and get to the shops before they open?
S: Or we could take our time and let the early birds clear out. Will that work?
ME: I dunno...
S: I dunno either...
So we finally decided to grab breakfast here in town, head to Material Rewards and see what happened.
The day dawned bright and clear, the breakfast was yummy, and we were energized...
ME (walking back out to the car): Can we stop at that shop in Caledonia - the one I've never been to before?
S: You mean Chestnut Bay? Sure!!! :-)
Chestnut Bay (which I LOVELOVELOVE!!!) to Mt. Pleasant (awesome sale!!!) to Material Rewards (huge selection) to a quick run through McDonald's and back to the quilt show. 100 miles on Shellie's car (thanks for driving, Shell...) ultimately for a quilt show that was no more than 5 miles from home!!!
What a great day!!!
Pictures to follow soon.
ME: Good night everyone!
