Best Day Ever!

I just had a wonderful day with my husband in Springfield. We went to Big Mommas for sandwiches for lunch. Then we went to the Red Velvet Art shop and got all kinds of goodies!

Then we went around all the vintage shops on that street. I found this really cute brooch...

Then we had to stop at Starbucks because Seth has been craving his pumpkin spice latte... which he wrote a love letter to here... http://myoutstretchedhands.blogspot.com/2009/10/dear-pumpkin-spice-latte.html Silly! And I got my mocha frap... YUM!

Then on the way home we stopped at a flea market and I found this nice bowl for 75 cents

and all this yarn for about $7!! Lovely!

We also stopped at Oceola Cheese Factory because that is Seth's favorite place. He found himself a couple cheeses.
It was a great day spending time with my husband and shopping. Thank you Seth!
