I picked Patricia up at 5:45AM on Saturday and drove the two of us to Tisha's house. We got into Tisha's car, with Patricia driving, and we were on the road by 6:15AM.
Our first stop was Cracker Barrel ~ all three of us enjoyed a yummy pancake breakfast. We also collected a bunch of syrup bottles ~ at least a dozen of them. There are so many creative things to make with them. This trip was about being together, eating and shopping! Our first stop for shopping was The Williamsburg Pottery.
Home decorations and craft supplies.
I have so much fun when I'm with Tisha and Patricia.
They have fun when they're with me too!
Our next stop was the Tea Room at The Williamsburg Antique Center.
The owner was quite a character. She entertained us with all kinds of stories. We drank some lovely tea and had a wonderful lunch.
I forgot to take pictures of the food ~ I was too busy chewing! We all agreed ~ it was very good!
We didn't have a lot of time to shop before the antique mall closed but we each managed to find one treasure to take home with us. Afterwards we headed to The Embassy Suites to check into our room. We got there just in time for the manager's reception and enjoyed complimentary drinks, deep fried mushrooms, veggies and popcorn. Interesting combination for sure!
We got our luggage into our room and then headed off to The Prime Time Outlets ~ we spent most of our time at Children's Place ~ in fact they had to chase us out at closing. There were some great grandbaby bargains and all three of us took advantage of the sales. We went to Chili's for dinner (I told you this trip was all about food & shopping!) and then back to our hotel for some visiting and a good nights sleep........because we had another busy day planned for Sunday.
Complimentary (made to order) breakfasts started our day....omelets, bacon, waffles, coffee and juice....Yum!
Then we headed to the largest Yankee Candle store I have ever seen!
I'll share more photos from this great place another time ~ this post is already long and it isn't done yet.
This is one of my very favorites.
