Hi friends. Today was another long travel day. I ended up driving the whole way from Nashville to Springfield. I'm not sure why I didn't have one of the others girls drive for part of the way. I guess I was anxious to get to Springfield. :)
We had a little trouble with roads and navigation. Part of the highway we wanted to take was closed because of flooding, so it was a little anxiety inducing. Thank God for GPS! We arrived in Springfield around 3:30 and got checked into our hotel and freshened up. Then we went to downtown Springfield to stop in at Red Velvet. I've been wanting an excuse to come to Springfield to see Elsie and Emma's shop and the road trip made for a perfect reason to stop! It was just as adorable as I expected it to be and Elsie and Emma were just as sweet.
Honestly, I wanted to leave the shop with bags full of cute clothes, but I only left with a Starlette Sparkler by Giant Dwarf. We were all tired from traveling and it was hard to really look at all the clothes and the thought of trying them on was even more exhausting. I almost got one of the dresses from Elsie's collection, but it just wasn't quite the right fit. I suppose I'll just have to come back. ;)
From Red Velvet we went to dinner at a little Mexican restaurant. Yes, we also had Mexican last night. ;) Now we are unwinding and just about ready to crawl into bed. In planning for tomorrow, we realized that Lexington, Nebraska isn't as far away as we thought it would be, so it should be about 9 hours instead of the 12 I thought it was!
Goodnight from Springfield.
