hobby lobby // first airport experience

GAH. Hobby Lobby is a place that is to die for. I just know you all are nodding. lol! I went with my mom yesterday.. It was totally not even planned! We had just left the airport (I'll explain more in a bit about that!) and mom was like;

"Hmm..isn't Hobby Lobby really close.....??  Right?"
(Me) *looks around* " Huh, I think so. Right? Maybe just keep driving.."
(Mom)  "uh huh.. I think so. Alright."

  I covered the whole entire store in under an hour! We strolled in EXACTLY at 9:00, which is when they open *smirks at our perfectly unplanned timing*, and done at 9:57. I walked out spending $27.98. *cringe*

I love the thought of airplanes. I've always dreamed of actually being a pilot. But, I've never actually been in, nor close, to a real airplane. I went to the airport yesterday for the first time in my life. It was so stinkin' stupendous!  I can promise this people, I'm going to fly. 

Hobby Lobby lover??
Have you been in an airplane?

  1. Hobby Lobby. Ultimate awesomeness right there!
    I've only flew in an airplane once, when my mom and I flew down to Tennessee for a youth rally. I loved taking off and landing. You kind of feel like you're on a roller coaster, but part of the reason that I like it so much is because my mom freaks out and hangs on to me..... its very entertaining XD

    1. IKR?!!?!!!! :D :D Once I step into the canvas and artsy wall art - I stop dead in my tracks and repeat "mom...oh MOM..Ohhhhh...NO NO NO this is too cute!" over and over again. lol!
      Oh how fun!!!! How old were you? I've never been on a roller coaster either. *rolls eyes* I totally need to do that too. lol! Hahaa! My mom HATES airplanes too ;)

  2. Oooh, I wish we had a Hobby Lobby near us! When we were on vacation a few years ago, my family was out shopping and we were going to go into the nearby Hobby Lobby...and guess what. They were JUST ABOUT TO CLOSE. WHY?!?!?!
    We do have a Michaels and a Jo-Ann near us though...which is almost as good as having a Hobby Lobby.
    I have been on an airplane four times in my life so far...and have LOVED it every time. I'm eagerly awaiting the next time I'll be able to fly...which unfortunately I have no idea when that will be. It feels amazing when you first take off!

    1. That's sad! It is about 40 minutes from us..so we don't go often. :P If I did, I would always be spending a ton though! lol!! Michaels and Jo-Ann is in the SAME area. So we don't get to go there often either. :P Besides.. I get so bored in those stores. lol
      4 times!? how cool!!! I want to go flying sooo badly. ;)

  3. HOBBY LOBBY IS SO FANTASTIC. Except it's all so expensive, and I'm broke. But it's fun to walk through the aisles and picture how I would decorate my room if I had the money. xD

    1. I KNOW, RIGHT?! Hahaaa...I am totally broke now. :P I'll do some random job though. lol I usually don't like to spend my life savings at once, BUT Hobby Lobby stuff is WORTH IT. ;) I totally want to buy a canvas art one time. It just kills me that I can get 10 little items or one awesome items, for the same cost. :P oh well lol!

  4. I've never been to a Hobby Lobby! Can you believe it?! I guess I'm going to have to remedy that soon!

    I've never flown in an airplane either, but a certain best friend of mine and I are maaaaaaybe planning something this spring (shhhh, don't tell anyone yet!) and so I'm thinking about flying more than I ever have before. ;-P

  5. HOBBY LOBBY <3 that place is so awesome. and what's like the best part is that it's run by some Christian people I think, so, it's like THAT'S THE STORE TO GO TO. but even with that aside, like, it's so artsy and creative and beautiful and everything there I WANT I WANT I WANT. but I don't need.

    aghhh.

    haha, plus, I'm pretty sure if I got everything I wanted, I'd go broke before I left the store. ;)

    FLYING? YESS. i think I've flown like three or two times in my life...and the sad thing is, they were all when i was pretty little, so i remember only very faintly. ARGHHHHHH. it's sort of funny, cuz like now we hardly ever do anything like vacations, and when i was little we went to like Colorado and Florida and Canada and all the cool places and it's SO SAD. xD oh well :) the last time i flew i went overseas, so that was pretty fun :) only my photography skills were like 0%...so ;)

    1. It is!! I especially love the fact that they've ALWAYS got a 40% off sale - like ALWAYS...! Hahaa, I had a project in mind..so I did have a need. Normally I'm just looking for gifts - and that is a good place to find them!

      oh how cool!!!!!!!!! Hahaaa! My parents did the same with me. I was like 1 and they brought me up to Mackinac Island and now I'm like MOM - DAD! I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER IT. lol!! oooh. I want to go to Colorado. ;) Haha! I would be super mad if I only got pictures of stupid things too I guess. :P lol

  8. I sound so dumb, but what IS Hobby Lobby? XDDD Whatever the case, it sounds cool, though.

    Oh my shish kebabs, you have got to fly in airplane! I've only ridden on them a small bit over fifteen times, because my family frequently travels. The airport is one animal of itself-- tons of souvenir shops, (and if you're in one of the big city airports) interactive features (the Seattle airport has like these nine huge TV screens you can play tick-tack-toe with, if I remember correctly), trains directing passengers to certain terminals, and phone charging stations. International flights have the own tiny TV option thing where movies and music can be played. Sometimes, I even like their bathrooms-- like, do you know how there are toilet seat covers? This one airport in South Korea (pretty sure it was in Seoul I saw it at) has this thing where it has wrappings on the seat like the covers and when you flush, the wrapping rotates into a dispenser. They really value cleanness. I don't think I explained that right, but it was, and still is, something mind-blowing.

    The bad parts about airports is that if you do get laid off and have to stay in the airport for several hours, all that you constantly hear is CNN blaring at the TV screens. And, like cars, the aroma in airplanes can make one feel dizzy-- that's why I suggest before stepping into the bridge connect the ticket collection and the plane door, take a huge deep breath. Don't make me explain turbulence while waiting in line for the restroom-- for weeks, whenever I walked, all I could feel was the up and down motions of the plane floor.

    Sorry for Airports & Airplanes 101. XDD But they're just great!

    xoxo Morning

      LOL! I want to..believe me. Oh gosh. That all made me SO STINKING JEALOUS. You've seen and done all of that?! wow...and OVER THE OCEAN. Girl. you're so cool! :D Haha.. it does sound tiring though. I guess I would't want to go overseas..or like over 15 hour flights. lol!

      oh don't worry! I loved it.. I love metal pictures from someone who REALLY knows what they're talking about ;) <3

  9. Hobby Lobby is the best store to make you wish you were a millionaire. :)
    I've been on a plane when I was 6 months old, so no, I don't remember it!

  11. I've been to Hobby Lobby.... But I haven't bought very much from there actually. I know, I know! ;) It really is a cool store! So crafty. ;)

    I have actually flown multiple times in an airplane! Maybe...ten or twelve times? Maybe more. Yup! Counting return flights. ;D Most of those flights were to visit my grandparents. :)

  13. What is Hobby Lobby? From what you've said, it sounds like an Ikea, Michaels, and any other craft store thrown together. Wish I could go to one....I don't think we have one in Canada (or if there is one I've never been there..). The last time I was in a plane was when I was six..I think. We've always driven everywhere. I actually got to see the cockpit once. But it was a LOONG time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yup, basically! I've never been to Ikea, but I know we've got them around here. :) Oh that's fun!! I love long car rides too though..they are always so adventuress. :D
