There's noooo place like home!!!!!

I just flew home and boy are my arms tired. Ba-dum bum. Ugh, is that *not* the dumbest joke ever? I am so fricken glad to be home, it's not even funny! I do this trip yearly, but this has been the most challenging trip to date. It even tops having to carry a fullsize, 6 foot Irish HARP through customs in Mexico. Yes, you heard me right.

Anyway, in my 19 years as a travel agent, I've never seen the airline system so screwed up by a snowstorm! Everything in the book came my way this weekend. Lost luggage, people stuck overnight from missing connections, my favorite auditor stuck behind an accident on the freeway until 4am after his flight arrived at 1am. But we got through it all, I'm home, and I'm on my way to wash piles of clothes now.

I did this quickie card today for my sister, to thank her for feeding and watering my 2 stooopid cats this weekend. Is this not the key-ute-est little makeup travel bag I bought for her? It looks like a bowling ball bag and is hard sided! I got it on sale for $16.99 at the airport gift shop!Shhhhh...don't tell her what a score it was! Nothing like waiting until the last minute. DOH!
I bought this huge Anna Griffin Bailey paisley print paper at Archivers on clearance a while ago, and have put off using it because of its horribly huge pattern. I broke out the SU big blossom and slapped on a cute little circle center from the new polka dots and paisley set. Did you know that when Archivers clears out their paper, a lot of it goes in the 6 for $1.99 bin? Always check their hotspot when you're in there for fun paper. The polka dots are by SEI.

So I'm off to do laundry. Oh the glamour of travel.
