Home sweet home. That’s how I was feeling last night when we FINALLY arrived home from Georgia. The trip was awesome, the ride home…not so much. We sat in stand-still traffic for a good 2 hours and did I mention we had 2 little boys in our backseat? Yeah, not my idea of fun. I was happy to see our driveway to say the least!
The time away was also a great way to get a fresh perspective on my home. Do any of yall ever get bogged down with all you want to accomplish in your house? Lately I have felt like my list of projects is growing and my amount of time/money is dwindling. Being away helped me take a deep breath and realize it doesn’t all have to be done today. Just not looking at all of my stuff helped me start feeling a lot less agitated. So I am excited to be back and feeling some love towards my house again.
I definitely still thought a lot about decorating and design-related stuff while I was away because, well thats just where my mind goes most of the time. Plus there were some great new places for me to explore down there. One in particular was a hole-in-the-wall fabric store that carried all discounted designer fabrics. Nothing was over $9.99/yard. I was surprised at how many fabrics I saw there that I have recently seen in Calico Corners. Really nice fabric for 5 bucks a yard! I almost bought some but couldn’t really make up my mind. My mother-in-law is on call for when I do!
We also checked out some other great places but more on that later this week. One place that I didn’t get to check out was the Ballard Outpost store. Apparently my MIL forgot that I just might like to go there (???) and I didn’t find out about it until late Saturday night. Has anyone ever been to one of these? It has all discounted merchandise, like the “as-is” section of a Ballard. I am so mad I didn’t get to go but it is definitely on my list for next time.
So how was your Thanksgiving? Find any new stores?? I hope it was great and I will be sharing more from my trip this week so stay tuned!
