Is it possible that when you take two great friends, a large car, and a free week-end...that magic can happen? I traveled to the Oregon coast with my bestest friend for my birthday...we followed every "sale" sign that we saw...and just laughed until we cried! We followed one sign that when followed ended up a dead end...or could it be an attic school sale? (with teeny tiny wee signage). When we walked in we both screamed...for there stood 3 glorious world globes...one the largest that I have ever seen! Needless to say, we had to completely unload our baggage to fit everything in that we bought there!!! Hand chalkboards, supplies, Quizmo game, flash cards, books and so much more! The men working the sale, I am sure, thought we were drunk or something! We would scream almost every time we opened a box!

The school and the guys were so charming...they helped us load our goodies...and laughed at our delight! These pics just show a mere pittance of what we found...wish I had taken a pic of the car!

And notice the lovely blue sky! We had wonderful weather all week-end.
And to my friend Gail...thank you thank you thank you for the most I have laughed in years!!! What a great birthday! (today is the actual day, but last week-end...was a BLAST!!!)
happy day to you all!

I had the best time, the memory of finding that school sale will last a lifetime! Wasn't it fun?
And let's not forget the great sandwich shoppe, the dinner of lasagne, bread, wine, beer, grasshopper cookies, chips and dip!
And watching Mama Mia and The Devil Wears Prada...
and the great little "hole-in-the-wall" coffee shop in Tillamook....and what else.....oh yeah, the dizzying Antique Mall where everyone was getting lost.
That felt a little like something out of Alice in Wonderland!
Oh, and also getting to see you beautiful new store and my first time at Monticello..oh and Stars mall too.
What a blast, Happy Birthday!
