A few days before we left on our trip my husband handed me an envelope at dinner (he had an identical one in his hand too). He made a little speech (as I opened it) about how he had been recognized at his job for working hard and putting in lots of hours. About how I deserved the recognition just as much because I am understanding that sometimes he has to put in extra hours and that he appreciates me being supportive. Also that he appreciates me staying home with the kids and taking care of things on the home front. Well that little speech alone was wonderful but to find a $100 gift card in that envelope was icing on the cake. His company had given him two gift cards, you know the ones that look like a credit card and you can spend them just about anywhere. Well his timing couldn't have been better because we were planning on stopping in Portland so that I could go to the Fabric Depot. Suddenly I had a lot more money to spend there, woohoo! My family dropped me off and they went geocaching while I shopped. Almost three hours later I called them to tell them I was done.
I had read on someones blog that the store was overwhelming and she wasn't wrong. It is so big and there is so much fabric. I just walked around a little dazed at first. They have a great selection and when the whole store is 35% off it is hard to not go crazy.
