December 3: Road Trippin’


I love a good road trip. When my accomplice Kary and I take out on the open road our husbands fear we are never coming back, or will have quadrupled in size when we do finally get home.


This summer we took off for Columbus, Ohio. While the official reason for our outing was to go to yarn market, that wound up being a mere side note in our adventures. We had rolls thrown at us in Missouri (you haven’t lived until you’ve had bread flying through the air into your open arms). We found ourselves in the middle of a zombie convention. We ate copious amounts of ice cream and bread.

The highlight of the trip was our stay at the Peabody. The lobby was filled with women donning bouffant hair-dos, drinking heavily on a Sunday night. They were Memphis locals and we are so hoping to encounter them again when we return.

We already have next summer’s adventure planned out, but were getting the travel itch in the interim. Recently we took off to Dallas for apparel market. While the main reason was to order more Comfy USA for the shop, we found some other cool things while we were there.

We stumbled upon this fabulous new line of affordable, yet stylish handbags.

We also met some cool gals from Texas who make a fabulous lotion that does not leave your hands greasy.


My son is crazy about their bath bombs, with goat milk soap nestled inside. Kids love these, and it gets a 10 year old boy in the bath without a struggle!


Naturally there was lots of eating, shopping at IKEA, and other shenanigans. Now we’re counting down the days until our next summer road trip. It will be an epic adventure!

  1. I really like the Assured scent. I would have to say that the lotion really is top notch. Great for the hands for all but especially for those that work with fiber since it doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.

  2. Poised…or free…or tenacious! Your road trip to Memphis sounds fun, I have added the Peabody to my road trip place…safe and fun lodging is hard to find.

    1. Congratulations Jenny! You’re the winner. I have your prize aside for you. Please pick it up by January 31, or it will be put back in the prize hopper.

  3. Oh that Electric sounds wonderful! I would love one! It sounds like you two had more fun than should be legal at lest without the rest of us.

  4. Those scents all sound great but as it’s December, I’m thinking I’d have to go with Free . Anything that reminds me of the ocean!

  5. Assured, or whatever is the lightest scent! (Oh, and by the way, you had me at salted carmel ice cream!)

  6. Tenacious for me. I got hooked on vanilla while attending my daughters’s softball games. Repels those biting gnats.
