So Happy and Excited

After leaving Galt, we headed up to Rocklin. It seemed forever! I know I drove the girls crazy, I was like a kid..."are we there yet"? Rosemary would say to me, "the next Bridge Velma and we'll be there". I closed my eyes, as I was exhausted from walking the flea market. I would open my eyes. Where was that darn bridge? "We're almost there", Rosemary would say. I swear, I never saw a bridge. This scrapbook store adventure was something we had wanted to do for so long. I didn't think I could make the drive because of my back. We stopped so I could get out to walk and stretch. Ok, so we finally get there (still never saw that bridge!) Reiko could not get out of the car fast enough, really, I was amazed, I was in awe just watching her, I didn't even get out of the car, I sat there and watched. She had smiles and smiles and more smiles. So, the girls are out of the car, I'm still watching, they're in store. The next thing I know, they are inside, at the window, product in their hands and holding it all up to show me. I still wasn't in the store yet. I started laughing so hard I knew if I didn't go inside I was gonna pee my pants! Now I'm in the store. I just looked at everything, I didn't move, I just stood there. This place was so spread out with goodies all over the place, rows and rows and more rows of scrappy goodness were everywhere. It was all that and more that people told me it would be. Yes, I was in scrapbook heaven! As I was walking around, I hardly saw the girls, if I wanted them, I called them on their cell phones...."where are you"? After being there a while, my cell phone rang. It was Angelica, well maybe not, I can't remember, finally found Gelica, by yelling her name (remember, this place is huge), she found her "paper line", yes! Her "coffee" line of paper that she designed was there on the racks. One of the employees told me that they couldn't keep that paper in stock, they were always having to re-order. The best part of this day ~~~ was the happiness I saw on the girls faces.
