It was almost like being there!

My sister Debbie http://debnstuff.blogspot.com/ met up with http://calamitykim.typepad.com/calamity_kim/ for a day of shopping and crafty blogger bonding a few weeks ago. (something is wrong with my computer and I can't embed links anymore!) I must admit, I was a little envious. I'm not at the point in my life where I can really do anything on a whim or that is just for me...... but us moms must pay our dues until one day we become re-liberated and can go back out into the world and do just that. Lucky for me that I have a sweet & generous sister and blog pal that thought of moi and got me all of these goodies!
what happens when my sister and Calamity Kim meet up
Some cards and a cute apron with my favorite trim!

Beautiful vintage embroidered items
vintage embroidered hankies
Fat quarters
fat quarters, the perfect gift for fabric junkies!
and chenille from Kim's stash!
a present from Ms. Calamity!
Thank you both! It was almost like being there minus the cupcakes, shopping and fun..... ok, it was nothing like being there but I love my gifts. You were sweet to think of me!
We had a great 4th of July here yesterday despite the crappy weather and just look at this baby

I would almost trade a day shopping to get to hold a baby for a few hours! You were there in spirit, sistah! Remember my son is 26. I have been where you are with 12 years of Little League and carpooling and school play costumes and home room Mothering. I have done my time with "Oh, Mom, we're having a party in class tomorrow and I said you'd make us some cookies" at 7pm the night before...Been there and done all of that!! And you are right- someday you will be where I am- no kids in sight, quiet house, only the sound of the sewing machine and dog sighing to keep you company. So who envies whom?
