A monumental epiphany happened yesterday as I was shopping for work materials for our huge annual Spring Break series. The Wal-Mart around the corner from my place of work carries fabric!
Can you say thrilled?!? Let me rephrase that, can you say broke?!? Because that’s where I’m going to be after I get finish with this whole aisle of pure joy. I mean I’m not a huge fan of fat quarters because I honestly think they can be a little overpriced at some places (*cough* JoAnn’s), but I’ll totally cash in on some Wal-Mart fat quarters.
They are basically throwing them at you FO FREE! And it’s not ugly fabric either, not to be hateful towards Wal-Mart (but they do have some pretty atrocious individuals who grace their aisles, so selections can be hit or miss).
Scoring the fabric was the silver lining to my hateful Thursday….
I digress, because hateful Thursday is long gone and it’s TGIFF. And what better way to celebrate TGIFF than to proclaim that I am now 55 days away from seeing one third of that classy trifecta that I’m apart of.
You read that right.
This one’s for North Carolina! C’mon and raise up! Take your shirt off, twist it ’round yo head, spin it like a helicopter! Hello New Bern, NC – April 25-30!
You also read that right!
Yours truly will be making her grand appearance in North Carolina to visit Gidget and Guido. More so Gidget, but it’ll be fun seeing Guido as well.
Quick rundown of what we’ve discussed for our plans for this vacation.
- Side by side tables for our sewing machines. We plan on cranking out tons of projects for a few Baby Birds we know.
- Thifting galore. Need I say more?
- Self Made Swimsuits – if you are going to have a possible failed craft, why not attempt it with your bestie.
- Sight seeing the hell out of this Nicholas Sparks’ town.
- Did I mention side by side tables for our sewing machines?!?
The only thing that could make this much better is if Momma Bird was with us. Since she won’t be able to make it this time, we’ll skype her in for the fun!
For this trip, I plan on taking my sewing machine with me. Like actually carrying it on the plane. Any tips on flying with a sewing machine? I could definitely use any advice!
