we flew into the long beach airport - on the advice of suzanne's neighbor and well that is NOT a big airport......when we got off the plane we had to go down some rickety stairs and walk across the tarmack. then we went in the door and walked across a hallway to the door that said baggage claim. we went through the door and i thought, this looks weird...are they doind construction.....oh wait a minute, we are BACK OUTSIDE. the baggage claim is OUTSIDE. and there was only ONE that i could see.
but we made it to the hotel with no lost luggage - it is RAINING which is kinda lame......
then catherine - from my design team - arrived later in the afternoon. well let me tell you the three of us are QUITE the three stooges! here we are all airplane ridin grungy:
we went to joe's crab shack for dinner:
here's the three of us in our "crab gear"
catherine and suzanne got these giant pomegranate poprock margaritas:
well let me tell you - when you dump those poprocks in - sucker EXPLODES!! we had poprocks EVERYWHERE! i don't think i have ever laughed so hard in my life!!! we had poprocks in our hair, all over the table, all over the seats - which we didn't realize til we were walking back to the hotel and trying to get poprocks off our BUTTS!
if you have kids i highly encourage you to try this at home (nix the alcohol obviously). i'm thinking it needs to be a thick drink so the poprocks don't sink so maybe a slushie or slurpee.....go to 7-11, get slurpee, dump in poprocks, safety goggles optional.....but possibly a good idea....
cat and i will be off taking classes today - first with tim holtz and then one for acrylic albums.
we are BOTH doing BIG BIG giveaways - simply post a comment on each of our CHA posts telling us what you think of that days' post - we will be drawing names at the end. my prize will be a FULL SET OF THE NEW ALCOHOL INKS and cat's prize will be a collection of Tim goodies - metal embellies, grungepaper and mini masks!!!!
