My sister are going to meet at my house, and we will all pile in the car. While we drive to the first location, my partner will be giving the message to the sisters, all at once. Then we will go to three different locations that none of us have ever visited. Let me tell you where we will be going...
I happen to live in Lehi, Utah, which I have never disclosed until now, so now you know. I was born and raised most of my life in American Fork, which is right next door to Lehi, and I hardly ever went to Lehi. I have lived her 4 years now and I still don't know my way around Lehi, and neighter do my sisters. So... here is our agend:
- Lehi Mill - which is the old Flour mill that was in the movie "Footloose". It just happens to be owned by my Robinson side of my family and my Uncle is now the owner, having be passed down from father to son for several generations. The mill has a darling little store and inside some very authentic and original decor.
- Broadbents - Once again, I have never been in this store unless my mother took me in as a child, but I certainly don't remember. It is a General Store as I understand it with quilting things and all kinds of other fun things... that a general store has.
- Scrooge and Marley's - A favorite of mine, with all kinds or cute handmade crafts all throughout the store. The store was made from an old home, and they even h ave a barn in the back that has more fun stuff. Very cute decorating things and nothing is outdated, just very cute.
- Nook and Cranny - If we have not shot the whole 2 hours of our field trip going to these places, we will then visit this store which is a vintage, sort of a junk store for the biggest part, but definately a step back in time. I have visited it many times looking for the vintage things that I collect, and have not fount them there, but certainly alot more things to look at. I have found so many of the old blue corelle, and platters, and things that I was given for my wedding. I even found these crazy old glass grapes that the Relief Society use to make at Homemaking years ago. My mom made some that the grapes were a rust colored, marbelish glass. You know what I am talking about.
SO doesn't this sound fun??? You should do it with your ladies. This isn't to spend money but it is to spend time together. I think we will all know Lehi, Utah alittle better when we are done, and we will have had laughs and lots of fun being together, and seeing cute things. Let's not forget the message either... all sister, including our inactive sister is coming and she will hear the message that we give. Captive audience in the car!! I can't wait!
Love, Katie G.
