Friend Makin' Monday

It's that time again. Wanna be my friend? Kasey has a really good question today:

If you had $1000 dollars, and a baby sitter for a period of 24 hours what would you do?
My instinct was to say that Rondell and I would run off to Destin...but then I realized the 24 hours time limit wouldn't allow for that so I had to really think about it:
First, I'd go to breakfast, just me and Rondell. Probably Bob Evans (if this was real dreamland there'd be an IHOP around the corner and I'd go there!).
Then, I'd send Rondell home so that he could have some him-time...and I'd be off to the scrapbook store. I really want to start a Destin (do you see a theme here?) scrapbook for each time that we go, so I'd go and get all of the materials needed and take a few hours to work on it. Ahhh...that sounds so relaxing.
Then, honestly....I'd probably take a nap.
Then, I'd get up and Rondell and I would hit up Easton (it's an outside/inside shopping area here in Columbus.) First, we'd go to the Container Store and I'd buy more things needed to organize my home. I could go crazy there! Then, we'd go to Abuelo's for dinner and Don Pablo's for dessert (I love their fried ice cream).
Finally, we'd end up at the Hilton where we'd sleep and not have to worry about Caleb waking up in the middle of the night or Jamison crawling into our bed. Once we got up we'd have Panera for breakfast (because the Panera at Easton has the BEST bagels...don't know why).
How would you spend your 24 hours. Join us!

Oooh I would love to go to the Container Store...I know I would spend a lot of time there and money. Probably a good thing there is not one near us...(for our budget anyway.) Oh yeah...this is a daydream...who cares about the budget!!!

Have a great Monday!! :D

You could definitely blow all $1000 at The Container Store...or at least I could!

Fun daydream!

I love it. I love organizing and containers?...love them. You are right on about being able to sleep all night, I don't remember what that is like!!!

Okay, that's hilarious, because I would go to most of the EXACT same places! I wonder if we've ever seen each other there? I HEART the Container Store.

In my daydream, I would give you $1000 to come organize my house! :-) Great ideas (and now I'm hungry!)

I dunno..it all sounds a bit too organized for me. ;-)

Sounds FUN!

Great dream. I did scrapbooks for each of our trips to Destin. I used small books and kept the colors and theme the same. I have a ton of stuff I bought at the 2 scrapbook stores in Destin. This is totally doable instead of just a dream. Maybe I will do a post about my books.

I could REALLY go crazy at The Container Store!! What a fun 24 hours...find a way to make it happen!! Well, maybe the $1,000 wouldn't be so easy.
