Aint it hot!

"Ain't it hot" is Marlene's quote.

We are all here in Orlando taking a couple of days to chill out before the trade show, CHA and the consumer show at the end of this week. Our apartment is beautiful and so big, my bathroom is almost as big as the class room back home. We can even watch the fireworks at Sea World from our balcony every evening at 10pm :)

We have already visited Walmart, Michael's and Joann's. Lunch yesterday was at the Florida Mall and lots of yummy stuff from the deli at Publix. The time change is playing havoc with our body clocks and we are in bed early and up when its still dark!

Not sure what the girls want to do today but there was a lot of rain yesterday for 4 hrs!
We were trapped in Joann's as we could not even make it back to the car.
What did the girls buy? DCWV stacks 12" $10/£7, Martha Stewart Punches in Walmart and Mikes. We will maybe empty the car today and have a rummage to see what we all have.
I settled for lots of charms and beads. Nothing more than $3 in my basket at Mikes but still managed to spend a weeks house keeping in one go.
Our baggage allowance is poor so that's stopping us from filling the trolley with all that we really really need.

Hope that all is well at home and that Katie at Funkykits is coping with the rush for single gorjuss girls and top up stamps that we managed to get to her before leaving. Manga girls will also be back in stock this week.

Hope you have a great Monday, I will be back with some CHA news tomorrow, take care.

Enjoy your time in Florida. See if they have A.C.Moore stores down there. They have a great selection of scrapbooking stuff there. You can always share a shipping box and fill it splitting the shipping. That would give you plenty more room in your luggage. LOL.
Hugs xx
