Have Pillow...Will Travel...

No really...the heading should say...have Pillow...can travel!! I can sleep when it's cold, hot, the bed is hard or soft...as long as I have my pillow. And my pillow isn't anything special...except for the fact that it's mine. So...it was a bit of a hard decision last monday when I realized before my return trip from Silver Bella that my pillow would not fit in my suitcase. I could leave out the vintage papier mache pumpkins I bought...or the tons of fabulous paper or paper cutter...hhhhmmm .... decisions decisions...nope...pillow stays. Phew...good thing I have another one at home!!

So...packing the bags and once again I'm leavin' on a jet plane...remember that song??? Oh my I'm probably dating myself.

Headed to NY for a week of touristy stuff. Taking the whole gang and we are really looking forward to it.

Keep your fingers crossed that they settle the stage hands strike...we have theatre tickets for Sunday night!!

Funny thing tonight... I really realized the weather difference between East Coast and West Coast. While packing my 9 year old I say to him...pull out a nice long sleeve shirt. So he rummages thru everything hanging in his closet and he says to me "I have this fuzzy one"....hhhhm I think...I turn and he has pulled out a sweater!! Poor kid didn't even know what a sweater was. It's shorts 11 months out of the year here. Jacket??? Don't own one...we had to go buy them.

Can't wait to experience some cold weather!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Ha! Ha! Ha! Now that gave me a giggle Colleen!!! You need to travel 600 miles North, and you will surely need your knickers!!

I've never been to NY, so please be my eyes with pictures and my ears, by telling me of all your adventures.

Christy

P.S. Please say you are going to Tinsel Trading....

Hey Colleen.... I hope you had a lovely time at Silver Bella!.... Lots of eye candy and inspiration I'm sure...

And now Colleen, you've been tagged! 3 other bloggers have tagged me to write 5 random things about myself - so I in turn am tagging you. You can see all the details on my blog... there is no pressure to participate. But what's the harm in posting a little fun and trivia about yourself?

Have a great day!
Hugs,
~ Johanna
