I'm Going- Are You?

I'm only 2 hours from the Farm Chicks Antique show so I'm going this year. I've been saving change all year for it! I'm nervous... I almost chickened out. I'm making myself go in case I regret NOT going. I don't like to travel and I'm not a crowd person but I do love finding what I love and I want to see all those awesome booths! I'm going on Sunday June 3rd.Bobby is driving me and he'll just drop me off and go use the Internet somewhere. I'll call him when I'm ready to leave and we'll go out to eat before we head back home. I'm not one to shop for hours or be on my feet that long but I do hope to met a few people. Laurie from Magpie Ethel will be there. Who else is going? I'll (probably) be the tallest girl with the straw cowgirl hat on. I'll also have a blog badge and name tag. I still haven't decided what to wear... My biggest dilemma is shoes. I want to be cute yet comfortable. That cancels out my jogging shoes...

If you're not going, I will take lots of pics for you to see!

Is there anything in particular that you would like me to take pictures of?

Kim said...

I'd be there with you in a heartbeat if I lived closer Holly. You're so lucky to be just a few hours away. Not that I'm wanting summer to come and go so quickly, but I'm already looking foward to this years Junk Bonanza event in September here in Minnesota. Its sort of an indoor Farm Chicks kind of show. You will have so much fun, especially if you're lucky enough to meet some of our fellow bloggers who will be at the show.

I am sooooo jealous! Jeez, if I could justify driving clear across the country (I'm in FL) I would. Every year I spend hours ogling over the pictures from that show. Somehow, some day, I'm gonna go! Have a wonderful time:)

Holly, I could not be more excited for you. I think we have lots in common! You shop the same way I do - with a husband tooting the horn curbside! Have lots of fun! E

Holly, I found the link to E's Xmas tag swap; you said you wanted some idea fuel! If Farm Chicks is anything like Junk Bonanza wear your tennis shoes! Cement floor and no one is looking at your feet, they're too busy looking at vintage fun!

Oh how exciting! I'm so glad you're going, and I want you to take lots of pics of our bloggy friends that you meet. And shots of some of the booths. And the treasures that you bought. And what you ate for dinner afterwards!

Before you delete Holly, I want to tell you what a wonderful family of boys you have! (Great looking husband, too!) Look at that smiling face of yours. I will remember it long after you hopefully don't remove the photo! So sad to hear about the chickens. I live vicariously through your farm adventures.
Have a great day! Elizabeth
