Firstly I want to give my respects to those that lost their lives 9 years ago. We all remember what we were doing that day and couldn't keep our eyes off our TV screens. I remember like everyone else, that it must have been an accident, nothing like this could have happened any other way.
All the flags here in the States, as I am sure as well as back home, were all flying half mast.
Today Ashley and I ran into Ikea. Love that store by the way. Well when we were leaving to pay for our purchases there were 5 employees blocking the way out. There were a lot of angry customers. They said that there was a fork lift going by and we couldn't leave the store. WHAT. We had to wait for 15 minutes. You would think that they would restock during the night, not on a Saturday afternoon.
Next we went to Mall of America. Wayne and I went one way the girls went another. Hubby and I were going to (yup you guessed it) Archivers, when some security guards and police officers came and made everyone in the hall to back up. They were closing the end of the mall. A little bit later they moved us further down the hall.
I asked if anyone knew what was going on. One guy told us that they saw some guy in a hazard suit with breathing mask the next floor down. I took a look and saw many police officers and a big trunk.
I was thinking maybe there was a package that looked odd and because of the day, they weren't taking any chances.
I text the girls to come and meet us at a certain area. When they got there they were like no big deal we weren't finished shopping yet, LOL. I said well if we were going to die I wanted us all together, they just rolled their eyes, LOL.
We are big zombie fans, so later Ashley texts me with this.
"Mom....someone bit me...flesh...hungry" My girls are so funny they keep me laughing. LOL
If you have not been to Mall of America before it is a very busy place. This is our view at the food court. It looks like a mini amusement park. I even see Santa in disguise LOL.
We went to one of our favourite places to eat. Red Lobster!!! I hate sea food besides shrimp. So I always get the Shrimp Trio. Yummy. But this time it just seemed like to much butter, so I only ate a bit of it.
Well I think it is time to go home. I ran out of money LOL.
Here are my goodies I bought today. These paper packs were only $10.00 each at Joann's. Found some more Tim Holtz dies at Scrapbooks Too.
I also bought these Nestabilities dies and matching stamp set. I also bought the Tim Holtz ticket stamp that goes with the die.
I bought these gems at Archiver's. Yes I was there again. Well actually I was there 3 times today. What else am I going to do while the girls shop in their stores :)
I picked up a couple of novels and a few other odds and ends.
We are leaving at 6:00 in the morning again. I thought weekends were for sleeping in.
Heather has to work tomorrow, so we can't stop anywhere on the way home :(
I was hoping I would get to go into some quilt shops on the way home.
Hope your Saturday was exciting, I know mine was.
