In these dog days of summer (sort of feels like we traded Minnesota in for some tropical place like Costa Rica) where we have 100 degree days with 100% humidity...yuck...we've tried to think of "cool" things to work on. One of them being Oopsie the Octopus. What better way to think about cooling off than to work on a stuffed animal that lives in the cool oceans. Oopsie is a free pattern on the Moda Bake Shop and has been an interesting conversation piece.
We also took a bus trip to the metro section on Friday the 13th.
We had an absolutely wonderful and fun group of ladies to accompany us and truly had a blast.
Now, those that know our famous bus trips know that we tend to have some type of glitch at some point of the day--and this trip was no different as we started our day out one hour behind schedule as train was poking thru Glencoe and we hit about every light red in Chaska.
Nothing like shopping with a lighter touching you butt...but we laughed and had a blast along the way seeing new shops, meeting fun owners, seeing some unique projects and shop personalities and relaxing with a delicious meal at Lola's Lakehouse on Lake Waconia.
We got everyone home in record time (we made up time along the way) and are thrilled to have been able to join the gals on the trip there. We always look forward the bus trips and are very, very fortunate that we have people who enjoy hopping with us, and are fun and kind people to be around.
Thanks to all who came...we had a ball and hope you did too :)
