I started my day with a trip to Hobby Lobby. I have never been to one before, but I have quite a few etsy friends who rave about it. And I must agree, it is a fantastic store. It is gigantic, and has more items than I could even comprehend. Unfortunately, my car is already stuffed, so I couldn't buy any large furniture pieces, much to my disappointment.
After my shopping trip, where I severely restricted myself to only spending $30, I headed on to Denver Colorado. It wound up only being about 8 1/2 hours from Kansas City, so I decided to go for it. All I have to say is that Kansas is a really wide, flat state. All I saw for hours on end was corn, sunflowers, and the occasional gas station.
I don't remember when I have ever been so happy to see rolling hills, and the mountains in the distance! I made it to Denver about 9pm local time. Got checked into my hotel, and ordered room service. (I could get used to this) I was just too tired, and getting a migraine, so I didn't want to drive around in a strange city and try to find something to eat.
Enjoy some pictures of today's journey.
