Date Day!

Well,  yesterday we decided to just sleep in and then get up and go to Mount Vernon and LaConner for the day!
We started out at a store that sells old doors and windows ( and anything else you can imagine ). We were
looking for a door to make a couple of things for Lauren and Nik's wedding reception. Trust me, it will look
neat especially since Jeff is going to make it.

We found just the ones we wanted with the doorknobs on them...great deal!

Then we decided to eat our lunch and just check out the town of Mount Vernon. Not a very big town but a lot of fun stores. The first thing we saw as we were walking down a side street was a huge black board painted on the side of a building with this on it...

It had all kinds of answers on it, some very thoughtful, some sad, many happy ones and some just down right weird! Since there was chalk on there also...we decided we should right our own wish on there. You can't read it probably but it was...before I die, I want to finish all my quilts for my family! :) I know you can stop laughing now!
Jeff's wish was of course... something he wanted to do on his motorcycle, ride back to the East Coast!

Then we hit some antique shops...always fun and entertaining!

I even found the perfect gift for my sister in law Shirley! Never been opened :)

Then we headed over to LaConner for dinner and just a stroll around town, fun to see the sights, so many things bring back memories of our childhood. ( Good ones )

Then we tried one last selfie through a store window and a mirror...ok, I am new at this.. I realize that! All in all, it was the perfect Date day.  I have been so sick for so long that we have missed many of our Date Nights, and definitely the chance to go too many places.
 How grateful I am, to be feeling better. I felt blessed to spend the day with my best friend!

Heading to celebrate the 4th with the girls. Have a wonderful 4th. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful and wonderful USA!

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea, Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free, Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.  God bless America, Land that I love. Stand beside her, and guide her Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies, To the oceans, white with foam God bless America, My home sweet home God bless America, My home sweet home.  -by Irving Berlin, 1918
