Florida, We Have Arrived!

We made it! I lived through another plane ride. I hate them but these were the smoothest ever! With a little music, Sims on the computer and some obsessive velcro opening & closing, I made it (while the guy across from me stared at me with curiosity. Maybe he thought I was going to start rocking and moaning? lol)

So far we're having the best time on our trip. I was able to visit with my friend Janet and do art for hours on Saturday. We worked on doing layering backgrounds. I don't know why she wanted me to teach her, she is just fine at it. We ended up making 2 canvases for her bathroom, in a sea theme. Mine is the first, hers is the second one. Aren't they lovely?

We went to Ikea Saturday night. Had dinner, did some shopping. I bought a pile of fabric for projects and art. The girls picked up the cutest bedcovers (duvets?) for their rooms. Oh, and since I couldn't cart a gorgeous set of mushroom glasses back on the plane for fear of breaking them, I opted for a set of napkins. I can't wait to use them in art soon.

All of Sunday was filled with the DisneyWorld Marathon (DH ran it, and dad ran half of it. Great job!), naps, playing around and then out to dinner at Red Lobster. As I type this (Sunday night) everyone is in slumberland, preparing themselves for tomorrow's trip to St. Pete Beach. Can't wait!

Glad you're having fun! :)

VERY impressed with the runners!! Yay for them!

You can just tell this Janet person I'm jealous of two hours of art time, AND

the dog is a little puppy princess, with you-know-who as her handmaiden. Sheesh.

The girl says she wants some of that fabric to guarantee the safe return of your mutt.

no, wait, that was me . . .
