Thursday morning the husband called from work and said he wanted to go to the beach. Umm... YES. He booked a hotel for two nights, I packed bags for a family of 5 (no small feat) and we left the next afternoon when he got home from work. It. Was. Lovely.
Oh, it was such a wonderful weekend. We spent the entire time playing at the beach, exploring, and eating amazing food. And because we spent a day in Newport there was no shortage of Arrested Development references. Or Ruby's. Ooooh how we love Ruby's.
I'm pretty sure we could have stayed indefinitely, but had to get back for work, school is starting next week, etc... I was less than thilled about leaving.
At least when I got home I found this in my mailbox...
It's been the source of many an @ on twitter, and I was so happy to finally have my copy. This is the second Scrap Lab Joanna and I have done, and it turned out great. We had Patty join us, so how could it not turn out great?
In this issue, there are instuctions for my simple simple placemats, Patty's scarf, and a pillow from Joanna. Also in this issue of Quilts and More? Some Zombie, some Rachel Griffith, some BariJ. Good company, all around.
Okay, better scoot. Weekend road trip = sand + laundry + messy house + exhausted baby + a whole lot of catching up to do.
