Hope you all had a nice long weekend. We left last Thursday for Chicago to visit Mr. Fanatic's mom and stepdad and drove home Monday night. 13 hours each way. Oy. It was freeeeeeeeezing cold and windy. And....while we were gone, Charlotte had beautiful weather. I mean gorgeous weather.
We took the girls shopping in downtown Chicago on Saturday and it was sooooooo cold. I couldn't stand it and finally found a Starbucks and had our girls come and find us when they were finished.
We met my cousin for dinner on Sunday night which was really fun, but other than that, I was miserable all weekend. Remind me NEVER to go to Chicago again in the Winter.
This is sad, but I really was excited that there was a HomeGoods near my mother in law's home and I stopped in to see what they had. Mr. F. reminded me that we didn't have room for a club chair in our car. Guess what they had? Lots of cute chairs!
I loved these:
Thought this was nice, too.
This HomeGoods had a fabulous section of dishes. I would have taken more photos of them, but I was too busy drooling! I thought this store had really great displays. Here's one display that all of you rooster lovers will like...
They also had several upholstered items in toile fabric.
I was really good and only spent $10 on a small glass cake pedestal that made it home safely.
So glad to be home!
