To market, to market, to giggle all night!

That's what I feel like singing right now! Dawn and I have been on the phone about fifteen times a day for the last week just counting down the days (and starting today, the hours!) until we leave! We are really going to Quilt Market! And believe it or not, I'm almost ready to walk out the door and I don't leave until Thursday morning. Yep, my bags are packed, my stuff is all laid out, and my "right before I leave" list is made. I'M READY!!!

Now I just need to pray that I don't get lost. Ben is worried. LOL! And he probably has several good reasons too, bless his heart. I'm a bit of a free spirit like that. I never know my way, and I do tend to stop and look at the flowers (maybe a little to much), and I get lost, A LOT. Then there's the fact that I've only flown on a plane one other time in my whole life when I was 18. I flew home from Chicago once with a friend. I still remember vividly calling my Dad at 2am from a pay phone in down town Chicago saying "Daddy...I missed the train. I'm stuck in a creepy train station with two other girls. And a homeless guy. Don't tell Mom because I know she will freak, but I wanted you to know where I was just in case." Wanna know how I missed the train? We lost track of time, and then got lost and went to the wrong station. I told Dawn that she would have to keep up with me like a toddler and she said that she would bring her leash! LOL! I didn't tell her about the Chicago thing. I thought I would sneak that one in on her when it was too late to back out.

I wish I could take all of you with me!  But since I can't I plan to post on Facebook a good bit. I also plan to take lots of pictures. The whole time I'm there I will be collecting little stories to tell you when I get back! xo, Sam
