Hobby Lobby, my maiden voyage

This may sound crazy to some, but I had never been to Hobby Lobby!  It's not really that close to my house and I just never found the time to make the trip.  But, I was looking for a boxwood ball (and frankly, who isn't?) and I had seen somewhere on the web someone who bought one at Hobby Lobby.  So finally, I cleared a day and went.  Words can not adequately describe the emotion I experienced when arriving.  I just didn't know what to expect, and  I was so happy at finally being there, and they have so much stuff, and oh the accessories.  I know this sounds silly, but I was almost crying, seriously.  Now some of you will not understand this, but I really really loved the place.  And I was passing employees by, and I wanted to say, "I love this store!!", but I knew if I spoke I would actually burst into tears, and well, I just didn't want to be some weird customer that the employees would talk and laugh about in the break room.  So instead, I started texting my friend, Linn, who also has never been, but wants to go.  So I'm sending all these crazy texts, and finally she sends a text that says, "I'm in bible study right now!"  Gulp!  So sorry Linn, but I know you really wanted to be with me at that moment and not in bible study.

So here is what I went for:
And here is what I came home with:

Isn't that mirror awesome?  It was regular $250, and I thought it was on clearance for $125, but when I checked out it was an additional 50% off for the unbelievable price of $68!!  (insert crying here again)
I actually got some more things to make some wall art for the kids room.  Here  is the sign I made for my son's room I am starting to redecorate.

I then proceed to Parisian to find a pair of grey suede boots and a pair of Calvin Klein flats for $18 each!!

It was a very very good day.  The only thing is I wished I had bought two of those boxwood balls. . . . , so I think  I need to go back.  {snicker}
