every time we go to concordia, we conveniently never
have time to stop at the antique stores.
i blame this solely on my husband.
he hates shopping.
but he loathes antique shopping.
not his thing. period. exclamation point!
so this time i devised a plan to leave him at the house
while the girls went downtown.
i headed straight into the store that i eyeball everytime
we drive down main street. "the trading post"
the most i can ever get from him is a "slow drive by"
it's like he's rubbing it in my face..."see anything you like",
and then he floors it!
places like this overwhelm me at first.
i feel like i'm never gonna have enough time to see it all.
i might miss something.
something i might need! :)
(and that last sentence was in a very desperate, whinny voice)
this is isabelle. see the two blurry spots above her...she licked my camera.
once i petted her, she became my personal shopper.
she helped me spy this.
i had it loaded in the car back at the house so craig wouldn't see it until he
was packing up the car to leave.
i acted surprised by it's appearance in the car. :)
there's no way he could complain...it was only 15 bucks!!
i've spied one like it in my mom's basement for years, but she would never part with it.
know i have my own. YEAH ME!
i also found this lamp.
i wanted to think about it and maybe grab it when we were leaving town.
i almost forgot and we were a mile or so out of town when i quietly said.
"ummm, honey, there was this lamp at the antique store i wanted to get, and i
forgot to have you stop when we left...could you pleeeeaaaasssseeee
turn around so i could go get it."
i got the "look."
i also got the lamp.
and this giant roll of string.
and it was only $1.
my guess is, i should never run out of string.
i'm chomping at the bit to get back there.
...and to all the others i haven't gotten around too.
maybe i'm just gonna have to make a day trip without him.
sounds like a plan to me. who's in?
