I Am READY...How 'Bout You???.....

for SNOW!!!! Look at it. This was wonderful...I asked for a snowflake and I got a whole snow storm. This was the beginning of our adventure. I really do not know where to begin. It all happened soooo fast.Below is our little Amish friend...gotta love the simple life they lead. By this time we were in Ohio and we had left the snow far behind.
This is what 200+ die hard Simple Good folk look like...can ya tell it was COLD!!

Look at our fire!!! This was at 6:45 a.m., now remember the doors did not open until 9, but what FUN we had out in line. We met so many wonderful new friends...thanks for saving our space in line so we could shop!!!!!

The picture is not that great...but this is a SMALL portion of the goods gathered on our trip.

I have to give Felicia a Gold Star for packing the car for our return trip home. She did an amazing job...I was ready to call UPS to come and get the stuff and ship it back. Now mind you she had no room in the back seat at all!! You could not see out of the passenger side back seat window as we headed for home...and did some MORE shopping. And still she found room for it. Lori did a great job driving and getting us back home safely....THANK YOU!! I shopped, and I guess you could say I did a pretty good job of that!!!
This was my first time at Simple Goods...but it will for sure not be my last. I had a wonderful time...and a fantastic birthday. This trip could not have been any better...well maybe if we had a cargo van...thanks to my bestest girlfriends for such a wonderful memory.
Love you both.
Now....get to work...our Open House is in 3 SHORT weeks!!!!
Have a blessed day.
P.S. It was nice to meet you Sherry!!
P.S.S. I said when I reached 100 followers I would do a give-a-way...please stay tuned. Will post about it in the next few days. THANK YOU


  1. So Nice spending time with you Robin!!!!
    I see some of my stuff piled on that bed too!!!

  2. Looks like a fun time! The snow is pretty, but I'm not ready yet. Instead, I'm gonna enjoy our 70 degree sunny days while I can! :)

  3. Oh I so wish I could have been there! And yes I LOVE the snow, even though people always look at me like I am weird. I lived in Texas for 5 years and Kansas City for 5 and I hated not having a change of seasons and a blizzard or two! Wow that looks like it was a fabulous show I hope you will post more photos....

  4. So glad you had such a great birthday! I sure thought about that show this weekend - wishing I could have been there! Did you get more pictures? Have a great week, Dawn

  5. Robin, sounds like a great trip! Show more pictures if you have them! OLM

  6. Hi Robin...I just received your comment on my blog - THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

    I know now who you are.

    I found out by process of looking at Sandy's photos and mine and the lady at our table who gave Sandy the gift was in front of us and WALLA...I realized you are the ROBIN

    I guess I just could have asked Sandy who the lady at the table and in line with us was...but that would have been too easy! lol

    Great chatting with you.
    Hugs, Karen

  7. Wasn't the simple goods show awesome! I can't wait for the next one! Hmmmmmmm... if you were sitting at Karens table you must have been sitting right beside me. Small world!

    Love your blog!
