Day in Missouri started out with breakfast at Steak 'n Shake (yum!) with Brittany and her family. Then we went to Brenda Sue's and ended our shopping at an Antique Mall. I found bundles of goodies in both places. Brenda had been to New York a few times so we chatted up about it. I found two fedora type hats, some purses, some clothes, and my prize was a vintage dress and hat for my daughter. It will be perfect for our Mommy and Me shoot on the 12th!
Lots of goodies found then it was time for lunch at Chick Fil-A. OMG! The nearest one to me is in New Jersey and well its the best chicken place-so yummers!
Brittany and her husband PJ are such cutie pies. They reminded me so much of my husband and I. It was so nice to spend the day with such a fun loving, sweet couple!
I have never been to an Antique Mall and I was surprised on how overwhelmed I became. There are rows and rows of cubicles of vintage items. Once I warmed up to the way items were displayed I loved it! I hope to find some in New York....somewhere.
We ended our day at Brittany's mama's house. I had the honor of meeting her grandma who immediately adopted me into her fold-how neat! And of course her mama Mickie who is an amazing artist and an inspirational woman. She made us a super yummy dinner that literally was finger licking good. (drool!). Mickie also has a blog called Tales from the Old Wooden Art Table.... I highly recommend checking out her art-its stunning...truly.
We were all beyond beat but we also managed to fit in two mini photo shoots in Mickie's backyard which was crazy fun. We intended to sleep early but ended up chatting til late again. Not wise to do when you have a photo shoot the next day and I do not recommend doing that but its what happens when you're having fun.
