Favourite Things Friday...um, on Thursday

 I'm jumping ahead just a bit on Favourite Things Friday (FTF),
since I'll be away from my computer tomorrow.

Today was the best day! LittleGirl was out of school, so we decided everyone would take the day off and have a field trip. We went to an Apple Farm, mined some gems, got lost in a corn maze, and smiled at some baby chicks. Grandma went with us, and she's always lots of fun to be around. :o) We had lunch in town. I think my mouth is still on fire after trying the Buffalo Chicken Salad. Honestly, I love spicy food; however, my head and upper lip were sweating by the time I finished.

After lunch we walked through Costco. I'm a Sam's Club girl, but like to check out the competition once in a while. Since Grandma had a card, we thought we'd stroll through. Driving down the road, I almost wreck Big Red (that's my truck) when I saw a sign. WE'RE GETTING A TRADER JOE'S!!! It's set to open next week. I can't wait to walk in and shop the aisles. :o)

As if that couldn't make me happy enough, I walked into the house from a day out, and what did I see sitting right beside my chair in the den? A huge box (see it's almost as tall as my chair?) filled with my fabric order from Fabric.com. Earlier this week, the good people at Fabric.com enticed me with a 20% off any clearance fabric coupon. The boys have been wanting new blankets for their beds. What a perfect reason to shop for fabric! I ended up with 18 yards of 62" wide fleecy fabric for $25...and that included shipping.

Life can't get any better when you've had a great day off and find fabric waiting for you to sew it when you arrive home. And the big bonus...the kids are playing with the huge box. Fabric.com just keeps on giving to my family! :o) So today, my Favourite Thing is my package that arrived.
