Nearly Perfect Day

I had a nearly perfect day Saturday. I got to meet up with my NCEE (North Carolina Ebony Elite) ladies...who will be known as Neicy going forward (LOL, Stacey). We met in Winston-Salem and had lunch at a great little spot called Sweet Potatoes. The food was GREAT!!! I'll definitely be going back there.

There was an arts fest going on while we were there...great booths and some Awesome shops on Trade St. We did our yarn crawl... We started at Knit One, Smock Too. Great shop and the ladies in there were very sweet. Not to mention my daughter loved the dollhouse they have in there.

Next we went to Knit Picky. It is in the cutest little house and the comfy, red couch is DIVINE!!! I picked up some Cascade 220 Heathers here...

The crew again...


Then we stopped for ice cream......

Toni, Deborah and Mr. Ryan...


Nik, Nayomi and Laila....



Renee, Stacey and Wendy




Great day, right? So why "nearly perfect"? Because Ms. Migraine visited me again. I felt her coming on the way home and by the time I got in the house, my hands were shaking so bad I could hardly hold my cup to take my meds....sigh. So I crashed for a couple of hours to find that my DEAR, SWEET, WONDERFUL hubby went to......




Yes, that's a Ganache box!!!!! He got a turtle cake...YUM!!!!!!!! I love this man!!! So, my day took a dip, but ended up great! Ooh, here's the cake....





TTFN!!

OOh I guess you had such a big day that Ms. Migraine reared her ugly head.
But WOW! @ how you ended the day!!!
When I saw the box I knew immediately it was Ganache!!!! You lucky gurl!!

Thanks for your update too!! It was great to see me on the other side of the camera too! ;op

I will update the spelling of Nayomi's name on my blog too!
She was such a sweetheart!
Glad she warmed up towards us! ;op Can't wait to see her at the next Neicy meet-up!!
