Jen and Carrie's Excellent Adventure

Have I mentioned that 2 weeks from tomorrow I am going on a trip with one of my best buddies? Oh yes. We are loading ourselves in the car with no children or hubbies and we are heading out to the Country Living Fair. Thelma and Louise style. Minus Brad Pitt. I think. This will be the first time I've ever gone away overnight without my family. See? This little butterfly is spreading her wings. This is a trial run for November when I go to Silver Bella. When I say trial run, I mean they will get a little taste of what it's like to be without Mommy and if they can't handle it, well then, too bad. Cuz I'm goin to Silver Bella. No. Matter. What.

I hope you will join me & Carrie in our adventure. Ms. Serena from the Farm Chicks promises me that the set up will be much better this year, than it was last year. Amen for that. I hope y'all will brave the crowds and meet us there.

    Jen,

    I'm fortunate that this big event is in my "backyard" as I live virtually within minutes of the venue. I, too, am looking forward to going. To make the most out of your visit to Columbus, I would encourage you to come to my 'hood, Clintonville, and check out the wonderful stores such http://sobostyle.blogspot.com/ there as well as those that are in the Short North (a little more artsy) and perhaps if you have time venture up to the NW suburb of Powell. Let me know if you and your friend need restaurant suggestions - there are many non-chain places in town that are fabulous.

  13. I went to Country Living Fair last year and cannot wait to go this year. My hubby loves it too! I am signing up for Silver Bella today! I am soooo excited I could swoon (vintage word). Guess I'll have to curb my Country Living spending to save for Silver Bella. See you there! P.

  24. Where is this going to be again? I believe I read Ohio, but I am not sure. I would really like to go. Is there a lot of good things? Is it just like flea-market style stuff or new? Gosh, I have a lot of questions. But if you don't mind writing me back I would appreciate it.
