Black Friday Shopping

It's Black Friday and you won't find me out in the crowds trying find that bargin.  The only kind of shopping I like to do is bead shopping.  We did just that last Tuesday and Wednesday.  After seeing New Moon for a second time with my sisters we went out to lunch and hit the bead stores in Kalamazoo.  We found a few trinkets to fill our pockets.  Wednesday was the Jackpot.  We went to Trade  Wind's in Watervielet, MI.  I love going to that place to shop for beads.  I picked up a nice little bag of goodies to bring home with me.
I will leave you some pictures from our shopping adventure.
Don't forget to stop by the Artbead Scene for  Black Friday Sales.
Have a great shopping weekend!

Sharing Some of the Fun

The plane ride to Chicago was unevental until we hit Midway Airport. SouthWest dropped the ol' bird out of the sky so fast we skidded to stop bracing as the brakes screeched to a halt. I had the front row seat and litterly had my feet up on the wall!  There to great was my daughter Amiee with her beautiful smile and her husband Eric who evaded the camera.

I really tried not to get sick but Hurricane Ida blew alot of crap our way before I left.  It started as allergies and turned in Bronchial Asthma.  After our Helicopter ride to Grand Rapids I had to make a trip the Doc in the Box on Sunday.  A Z-pack and steriods have things back on track and I can breath again  thank goodness.  Saturday morning we went to the Threater and saw New Moon.  I liked it just as much as Twilight. You have to go knowing it won't have as much detail as the books and you will like it.
Tomorrow I am going to go watch it again with my sisters. I love when we get to have a sister's day.  It will be a movie, lunch, bead shopping coffee drinking day.
I am going to leave you with some Aerial shots from my helicopter ride

A Little Sparkle

I am leaving you with a little sparkle today. Those little rivolis are like potato chips. You can't make just one. My bags are packed and I am flying out of here to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Hopefully I will blog some while I am away.
Have safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
