Hello from Chicago!! Jeff and I are in the middle of a 2 week trip around the US. We have been in Illinois the past 5 days visiting good friends, eating Chicago-style hotdogs and deep dish pizza, sailing on Lake Michigan and trekking through cornfields to visit Jeff’s hometown.
The highlight of this trip so far for me though?? Making my long-awaited first pilgramage out to Hobby Lobby!! (for those who are like me and don’t have the fortune of living near one, Hobby Lobby is a megastore full of craft/art/decorating supplies. Way better than Michaels and AC Moore.) I’ve been wanting to go to Hobby Lobby my whole life! Those who live near a Hobby Lobby may think its ridiculous, but it’s always been a lifelong dream of mine! There has never been one within a 300 mile radius of where I lived. I finally got to go yesterday! I didn’t even let Jeff come with me because I knew he would hold me down. I wanted to spend some long uninterrupted hours there browsing at my own pace without being harassed to hurry up. I bought so much stuff, I actually had to buy an extra tote bag at Hobby Lobby to bring everything back on the plane! ha!
Here are a few snapshots from the past few days:
Next stop on this North American tour of great cities: Los Angeles!!!
