That sounds like a wonderful fall idea.

A fall tradition was started a few years ago with several of my girlfriends. Despite the fact that we have a small outlet mall nearby, we load up and head about an hour away to a huge outlet mall and spend the entire day there. We start with a breakfast out (locally - and we eat large as we skip lunch), make the drive, shop all day (getting a jump on the Christmas shopping) have an early dinner (beating the usual dinner crowd), shop some more until the stores close and we're asked to leave, find a place to have dessert and coffee, then make the drive home - usually after our families are already in bed.

Girlfriend traditions are a very good thing! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Fall Fest sounds like so much fun. I love the fabric flowers. I am going to need some to add to a project that I am making as Christmas gifts this year. I saw that Janna had a link to the tutorial on her blog. Have fun!



Oh, that sounds like fun! Have a super day!


That definitely sounds so much fun. I hope you girls have a great time.
