My very favorite store there - the ONLY one I go there for - was closing. Archiver's. Not all of their stores, just the one in Gurney Mills. But it's the only one I've ever been to.
My sadness was short lived, as their closing meant that everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was 40% off, including sale and clearance merchandise.
And since Famke has expressed a deep desire to make cards with me, I found a few fun things for doing that too.
And a very large punch for making banners.
I even found a pad of paper for making paper purses. I think Famke will enjoy that too (hmm. that is fun to say. a pad of paper for making paper purses).
You'd be proud though. Once I found this great paper, I put a bunch of other things back.
It usually doesn't work too well, so when it DOES work, I brag about it.
I'm weird like that.
THGGM and I walked nearly the whole of Gurney Mills, which is HUGE. So leaving the mall we stopped at Starbucks. It was no where near the place we came in, so we were walking the mall with our goods and carrying our Salted Caramel Mocha's when suddenly THGGM sucked in a big breath and said "OH NO!"
Needless to say, this caused me to startle and my Salted Caramel Mocha jumped out of my cup and spilled all down the front of my very solid off white shirt. Yes. I had to walk the remainder of the mall with deep dark splotches of Salted Caramel Mocha down the front of me. It was embarrassing.
And are you wondering what THGGM said "OH NO!" about in such an alarming way? It had just occurred to him that we had a dresser taking up the whole of our back seat (see below) and still had a dog to pick up before we reached home.
Thankfully, I still had a clean shirt in the car. And for the last leg of our trip, I held Zeke on my lap. He didn't mind one little bit.
