Hi bloggie friends!

Sorry I've been gone so long. I've been home from the hospital for several days now & just starting to recoup my strength. When I go to the hospital now it's just for pain relief and to "reset" my stomach. They keep me all hopped up on goofballs while I eat custard & other foods usually reserved for people with no teeth. I go back to the U of M Hospital on 7/8 for another appointment with the super-specialist.

When Chris & I went camping a few weeks ago we passed a Hobby Lobby. I'd never been in one, but have heard crafting friends rave about it, so my hubby pulled the old motor-home in and in we went.

I have to say I was underwhelmed. Not because it was bad, but just because this Hobby Lobby is so much like the Michael's I'm used to going to. Same layout. Maybe their owned by the same company.

Anyway, sometimes I just see things that set me off. This was one of them.


I guess the fact that they say pedicure socks make it better, but if I ran into any flip-flop & socks wearing person I'd have to refrain myself.

I've never been a fan of the flip-flops. Don't jump on me, I just can't stand that thing between my toes. I wish I could wear them, their so cute and so prolific now, but I just stick to my rip-off Birkenstocks.

I've got a great giveaway coming tomorrow (hopefully) so check back to win a really cute piece for your kitchen!

If you're a reader, I'm posting lots of new book reviews on Mimi's Year In Books, so click over & check it out!

I'm glad you're home again! And I'm glad you don't wear pedicure socks. Those are horrendous.

Yay!!! You're back home!! I get so worried about you and you NEVER return my phone calls, lol! Hugs!

I can't wear flip flops either - they hurt!!!!

I have a cute piece in my kitchen every time Thomas walks in there - he he he!!! Not what you meant?

I am so glad you are home Mimi!! And those socks....really? People would wear those? OMG!! Too weird!
As for flip flops...my granddaughters and daughter-in-law all wear them. If find them uncomfortable as well.

I actually made those before - for the beauty salon I go too... they do pedicures there & would sale them in the winter so people wouldnt have to put their socks back on, but have SOME kinda warmth walking out to the car!! :)

Glad you are home! The socks look interesting. I guess though they aren't socks but feet warmers? The flip flop is too much. LOL

I'm sure you're glad to be home, "Welcome"!

I love Hobby Lobby and could spend a day in there just looking around - yep, I'm easily entertained. LOL

Strange! I don't like flip-flops either. I have been wearing Birkenstocks for 8 years now 24/7/365!
