Driving Around Lincoln!!

Woo Hoo!  Yesterday was amazing as I spent the day driving all by MYSELF all around Lincoln!  I dropped DH off at work and then the day was mine for the next 8 hours.  My DDs were with me as we got an oil change, drove to JoAnn Fabrics, went to the mall, had lunch with DH, over to the sewing machine dealer, back to the mall and then to Target.

What makes this so amazing?  I have never driven around Lincoln in the 8 years I've lived in NE.  I've missed driving in a city for years and it was such a treat.  I actually find city driving much easier than country driving.  Mostly because the cops have nothing better to do than give out speeding tickets along the major highways.

While I was getting an oil change, I took a look at some used cars.  The Ford was crap but the Volkswagon Beetle was incredibly fun.  DH said NO at lunch.  While he won't admit it, I bet it was because he didn't want to be seen with one.  It's okay.  For now, a second car isn't really needed.

Next stop was JoAnn Fabrics.  I picked up thread for two projects and found a wonderful Indigo blue fabric that I had to have.

Next we headed to the mall.  I feel sorry for anyone who works in the Justice store as the music is horrendous and loud.  I couldn't listen to Hannah Montanna, The Jonas Brothers and other teenage singers without quitting after the first hour.

My girls got a couple of shirts (have you seen mall prices?) and we walked around the rest of the mall.  We met up with DH for lunch and I headed over to the sewing machine store.  I spent an hour talking with the lady and got tons of help with the Horizon issues.  It's nice to know I'm not crazy as my machine is working as it should and I won't panic anymore.

We went back to the mall and got the girls' hair cut, bought Webkinz that were 75% off as my daughters LOVE these and  I went into JC Penney's and got a quick make-up consultation.  The girl was pretty good at doing this and I bought a couple of things that actually work.

I went back to DH's work and he drove us home.

LOL By the way DH; 48th Street does NOT go to Pine Lake Road.  It dead ends at Old Cheney..LOL.  It's a good thing I know how to get to 27th from Old Cheney.

I haven't been in a mall in about 15 years..... what's it like? Hmm... don't tell me. I don't want to be tempted.

Love the fabric you bought.
