Road trip preparations

We have a road trip to plan and I am so glad we are feeling better. Thank you all for the well wishes and kind words sent our way. You are all so sweet! :) 
Last year I brought my sewing bag and did some hand sewing in the car. It was such a good distraction to have during an 8 hour trip. I was surprised that I didn't even get car sick. 
I will for sure bring something to work on this time. Maybe I 'll cross stitch a pillow or crochet something.
Bringing some roses from the garden helped the car smell great! (I know it's totally random to bring flowers but I didn't want them to bloom and die while we were gone so I brought them along! )
 
Every July 4th my family gets together for a reunion of sorts. We usually have a themed party to make things that much more fun! (Click here, here and here, to see the different themes from past reunions.)This years theme is Pirates. Awesome right?  I am so excited! Take a look at my pirate pin board to see some great inspirations and ideas.
I made a list of what I need to get ready before we go.
  •  Cross stitch stuff
              -Floss
              -Needles
              -Fabric
              -Embroidery hoop
  • Crochet stuff
              -Hooks
              -Yarn
              -Scissors
  • Pirate stuff
              -Jolly roger flag
              -Pirate dummy (As requested by my mom, I'm excited to find out what he's for.)
              -Pirate dress ups
              -Pirate photo booth back drop

Trent is at Art on the Lawn all day today, I miss him. the goal is that he will return with less paintings and more money! :) Lizzy went with him to sell her paintings too. I hope she has a good experience! Ever since she made 10 bucks selling deflated balloons in front of the house a few weeks ago she has been obsessed with money making ideas. I hope this one goes just as well for her.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
