Fun Friday!

We had such a great day yesterday!
Robbie, mama and myself headed out around 9:00 to go on a day trip to the NC Mountains.
We had a full day planned and had so much fun!
After filling up the gas tank and heading up Interstate 40, we pulled off of an exit to get a Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuit. Those things are absoutely the best thing I've put in my mouth in a LONG time!
Then we headed on up to find the Elmore Pisgah Cotton Yarn Mill Outlet! I printed off directions from Mapquest and we missed a turn, had to turn around and go a completely different direction from what the map said, and finally made it!
Here's a couple of pictures of the town of Old Fort, North Carolina! After spending $85.00 (shhhh...don't tell Big Daddy) on a HUGE box of yarn, we decided to drive around the town a little bit. We found a nice store that is full of crafts from local people. Here's my mama and Robbie outside the store:
At one of the booths, Robbie found a pair of antique leather gloves. He had so much fun putting them on.
Here's all of my yarn I got!
Then while still riding around the town, I saw a YARD SALE sign! I whipped it in and began to look. There was a nice older man there and I told him I was looking for "Old Grandmaw Clip-On Earrings." He went to the van and pulled out a box. I was squealing with delight inside as I began to mate up the pairs. Ended up getting all these for $10.00! WHAT A STEAL!
Finally Joann, my college roommate called and we headed on up to Black Mountain to meet her at McDonald's for lunch. We had a great time talking and catching up and she fell in love with Robbie too! He just kinda has that way about him! He played in the Playplace while we chatted. Mama took two pictures of us while we were there. The first picture is of us during our Sophomore year of college at Mars Hill College. This picture was taken on the steps of Fox Dormitory where we lived that year: And here's the two mama took yesterday:
Joann--I had so much fun chatting with you and catching up! We MUST do it again this fall!
So, after that we loaded up the minivan and headed back home. We found a little yard sale on the way back and I bought these for Robbie for 75 cents each! I can't wait until Thanksgiving because the bottom sweater will get shown off! It's so cute!
When we got home around 5:00, I dropped mama off and we came home to The Doublewide. Robbie hung out here for awhile and then Big Daddy took him to spend the night with Nanny(Big Daddy's Mama). They're running some errands today and then she'll take him to Monkey Joe's to let him wear himself out before his nap.
I have GOT to get this place cleaned up a bit. My sink is full of dishes and the living room floor is STILL full of toys! Laundry's piling up too!
Oh, in case you're wondering what in the world I'm going to do with all of that yarn? I'm planning on making more of my famous cotton dishcloths and then I'm also making some Tawashi face cloths!
Here's what they look like:

And...I'm not sure if you remember the old little black picture frame that I got out on the FREE table while at the beach with the girls a few weeks ago, but here's what I finally did with it:

Now I'm outta here! These beautiful friends of mine are calling my name:

Have a great day today!
Be Blessed!

Sounds like a wonderful day. You sure hit a lot of area in one day.

I need to learn to yard sale, but could never be as good as you.

Robbie is always a cutie, love his pics.
