Yesterday I met with Catherine of Bramblewood Stitches and Brett, our blog lurking friend. The first time I met with Catherine about a year ago she brought her dear friend Brett along and I am so glad she did! We have such a good time when we three get together but that time goes by so quickly. We have to cram about 6 months of gab, gossip and giggles in to just a few hours.
We met at our usual place, Starbucks. We window shopped a nearby jewelry store and then we embarked on a mission of sorts.
I wanted to shop for a messenger bag since I left mine at home. It's the most comfortable way to carry work related things in during training week. You'd think that wouldn't be so difficult to find, right? WRONG!!! We went to TJ Maxx, Target, Kohl's, Old Navy and nearly every store in a nearby mall. Even though we came away bagless, we had a bunch of fun while on our quest.
We found that Catherine looks good in just about any hat she plops on her head...........
I on the other hand do NOT......................
Brett and I decided we missed our calling as hat models................
I especially like the anti-theft device on Brett's hat!
We think Catherine should get this one for the Derby......
We moved on to the display of sunglasses. Catherine and I think Brett should have bought these....
Brett sprinted in to each store locating the nearest associate to ask them if they had messenger bags. Catherine was very helpful in keeping us on task because we often found ourselves distracted by all the pretties.
Before we parted ways we had a quick lunch at Panera Bread. No pictures from there as we were famished from our intense shopping experience.
At the end of our visit it didn't matter that we couldn't find my messenger bag. We had such fun together. I'm already anticipating the next time we can get together. Hopefully I can see them again before this job is over.
Oh I almost forgot! Here is a quick picture of my progress on The Child's Guardian by La D Da....
There are a few stitches that are to be in the center of each diamond of the border and I need to use the provided alphabet to put my name and date in that space at the bottom. The lighting isn't very good here right now so I took one with the flash and one without for you.
Masterchief just messaged me to say he is on his way back to the hotel right NOW! He completed all his training early for the day so he could leave before noon today. We are going to the King of Prussia Mall.
Hmmmm.....maybe I will get my messenger bag after all!
Have a great day!
