Great Gift from Hubby

One of my gifts from Hubby is a 5 day 4 night stay in this cabin for a sewing/crafting retreat.

We can take a break and relax in this great room.

Clear off this table along with a few portable tables I will bring along for plenty of space to set up sewing/scrapbook machines, and all our supplies.

Then head to bed after a long day of fun, what the heck we can even take a nap if needed!!

A cup of hot tea or coffee on the deck with this great view. I ask you how great will this trip be!!!

I am so excited to be going on a girls weekend of crafting fun this March with some of my girl friends!! Hubby hit the nail on the head with this gift. I have sent out the announcement to the ladies I think will want to join in, it is always hard to get a time when is best for everyone but they have plenty of time to plan ahead.

He picked a cabin that was affordable (1/2 price sale!) in case I will be going by myself (not likely) I know my lady friends are uncomfortable with a freebee like this so I figured the cost per room so we can all chip in, some will double bunk to save even more $$, some will be like me and want a room to themselves. I went to bed last night thinking of what project or two I want to work on (maybe 10 or 15 in all honesty!) I have lots of time to narrow the list down.

To stay with our frugal living commitment we will each take a turn at a simple meal to cook and share. Maybe even do little secret buddy gifts to have a little added fun.

My house is a mess after 24 hours with all the kids and grands under one roof, eating, unwrapping gifts and merry making. I honesty don't give a hoot, all in good time it will be back to normal, for today hubby and I are enjoying a little quite time.

Hope everyone had a great holiday with family and friends, leave a comment of what your favorite gift, special story or whatever made your Christmas special. I might just have to do a little blog candy later in the week.
