Day Trips and Dominoes

Hello there!

Well, it's been an awesome day! I drove down to Kelowna with a girlfriend and we spent the whole day visiting Scrapbooking stores in Vernon and Kelowna.

Oh. What. Fun!!

We left Kamloops around 9 am and drove straight to Vernon to visit a new store called "Forget Me Not"...thanks to Maggie -- my girlfriends' GPS system. Then we drove to Doodles, also in Vernon. From there we went onto Kelowna (without Maggie's help this time), and stopped over at Ever After. There was a fire in their complex, but luckily the wind blew the other direction, and the Scrapbook store was still intact without any smoke damage. What a blessing for them! And us!

We stopped at Milestones near the Orchard Park Mall and had an AWESOME lunch. So good! Then we drove to the other side of Kelowna and visited Memories and More. There we ran into Lisa Padley (Moments Matter), a local Kamloops CTMH rep, and her girlfriend. We had a good laugh that we all ended up there on the same day...and they visited 3 of the 4 stores we went to on a Day Trip too!! After that we took the highway home, stopped in Merritt on the way for coffee at Tim Horton's, and then arrived back in Kamloops about 6:30. What a wonderful, wonderful time we had!!

But I'm old, so after all that I'm tired!

Lol....but not too tired to bring you a little freebie!  I have a domino background for you today. Enjoy!
I have company from now until Sunday, so I may put up some vintage graphics in the next couple of days, but won't have time for much else between now and then.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
