photostory friday - she's not still on about that damn trip, is she?


i took over 800 photos, and you guys have only seen like - 23 of them!!!

this week's instalment is brought to you by hobby lobby and archivers - and let's not forget, the louisburg cider mill and pumpkin patch too!

so, after a week on my own in new york, 2 days in princeton and 2 days in poh dunk usa (that's a whole other story), kristi and i drove across missouri to meet up with 8 other blogging scrapbookers (and now that sherryn has a blog - that statement is totally true!)

here's kendra, our nominated bag lady for the hobby lobby visit. we fanned out fast and couldn't be weighed down by such impediments as handbags...
christmas trees!!!! in october??????

all hail donna! the designer of these very cool sticker lines!!!
(that's debbie on her knees)
we all heart archivers...

a quick snack at the cheesecake factory (i shared this)....actually...
then it was across the border to the louisburg cider mill
and pumpkin patch
who called the paparazzi?
stop taking our picture! can't you see we love it?

love ya kristi!!!
against my better judgement, i went in the corn maze
'twas rather pretty with the late afternoon sun
and i made it out alive
to tell the story

it was a total blast to meet you - my kansas city bloggers, and thanks again to donna aka camp mother/cruise director for organising it all!

#1) It's Thursday here but your post says Friday. Quit messing with my head.

#2) Admit it: you ate that cheesecake all by yourself.

#3) Also admit it: you got tired in the cornmaze and snuck out before the exit, didn't you?

Looks like you had a loverly time!

Everyone needs a trip like that. Well, a fun trip, with good friends anyway -- not sure scrapbooking would do it for me, but I'm glad it did for you.
That cheesecake looks deadly.

avtcoach said...

Wow! That is a very cool trip for you! I came from PSF and love your blog but it's been a while since I have visited. So glad you are having a nice trip in the US and how fun to meet blogger buddies along the way!

CC said...

Maggie May said...

Well you've got some really good photos there..... no wonder you want to show them off & it sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Reluctant Housewife said...

I love seeing the pictures from your trip.

And I love cheesecake, but that picture kind of scares me - what's with all the whipped cream? Yikes. Lol. I'd still eat it, though, I'm sure.

Jonny's Mommy said...

Looks like you had fun and I live vicariously through you with all the scrapbooking stuff! :-)

Love it! Great shots!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Looks like fun fun fun!

Alvis said...

Nice pictures. I especially like the one of the side of the barn(?) that has 'Louisbur' painted on it.

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

That looks like fun and I want to see each of the 800 pics! :)

Shellie said...

Those are fun shots and it was a delight, I bet I could see a few hundred more:)

angel gurl said...

far out 800 photos and we have only seen 23 scary, very scary. That was a huge oeice of cheesecake, I like cream but that looked like to much even for me. Hey, I still can't get updates on yor blog through google reader, its really odd.

Kristi Smith said...

Nice photo of me squatting! ;)

I like the Archiver bag shot!

I still need to figure out how to load my photos to Donna!!!! I will work on that today!

Amanda said...

I love hearing about the trip, too. I'm all for it!! I'll sit and watch you talk about all of the pics. You're definately a gal that sure knows how to have fun.

Michelle said...

We don't have a hobby lobby in my neck of the woods, but I have visited them in another state. They are full of crafty goodness!

By the way, I love your scrapbook pages you have scrolling.
