I can't believe that I made this work out! It's Rubber Stamping FATE!!!

A few months ago Sherri sent me a note telling me that I need to come to NC this weekend for the convention. I used to travel to Raleigh NC for business all the time but I am on a new project and never get out to NC any more ... so I knew it probably would not work.

Last week one of my co-workers announced that he was going to Raleigh on Thursday and he thought it would be a good idea for me to travel with him due to the topics relating to my new project. OMG!!! I put 2+2 together and realized it was the same weekend that Sherri wanted me out in NC for!!! It was fate!!!

I told my husband that I HAD to travel for work and the fate story and said it was my DESTINY to be in NC for the weekend and that he MUST let me stay!!! Well how could he say no to Rubber Stamping FATE!!! He totally rolled his eyes! :eek:

So Sherri and I have kept it a secret all week ... I think this was very hard for her! And then today I hear that Angie and Cute Mom are showing up and staying at Hotel Sherriton with me ... Oh How Fun!!!

Anyway ... I hope the work part of my trip tomorrow goes by fast ... I can not wait to get in the car and drive the 2 hours to see my Shackie friends!!! Brafford Street in Concord here I come!

And to think .... somehow I really have little to no expenses for the trip since I tied it into my work trip! It truly is FATE!!!

I'm so jealous. I'm on summer vacation and would have been able to drive the 8 hours there but I had nobody to take care of my dog (it's a LONG story) so...Here I sit at the computer. I'm so bummed.

Have fun in the Sherraton. It's my favorite hotel because of the cozy sheets and the cozy beds and the awesome bathrooms and great decorating I've been in so hopefully you have a great one too.

The "Sherri"-ton is privately held by the Thacker's. :rolleyes: They do have great bathrooms and the decorating is awesome. I will report back tomorrow when I wake up about the bed and the sheets!!

We are off to do some serious stamp shopping today. We (Chelsea, Angie, Mary, Lesa and Joanie) are meeting up with Ellie, Patty and Michelle and going to Enchanted Cottage and Stampers Alley. They will LOVE LOVE LOVE Enchanted Cottage as they have about 35,000 stamps although it seems like they have 100,000 :).
