I'm Home

We got back last night from our adventure in Indy.  Wow, what a weekend!  It was wonderful and memorable and fantastic.  We started out last Thursday.  That was our travel day.  We stopped in South Bend at Erica's which is mostly a quilt shop.  They sure have a lot of stuff in there.  The qults on the walls are impressive.  They had wool in some great colors.

It was a great break from driving.  Then my friend and I got lunch at Steak and Shake.  They have the best skinny fries.  I couldn't decide between the hot dog and the hamburger, so guess what?  I had both! I had never had that neon green relish before.

I also had a small size Nutella milkshake.

 Yum.  That was fun.

Then we continued on down the state of Indiana to Indianapolis.  Oh my gosh, it was a mess.  We got there at rush hour and there is construction all over the place.  We weren't even sure if we could turn into my hotel.  We tried out an app called Wasz (or Wayz?) on my friend's phone.  It gave us alternate routes to get to my hotel since I-465 was a ten lane parking lot.  I could never live here.

The hotel is nice and across the street is a Paradise Cafe that my friend said was good.  So we waited for the traffic to get better before we ventured across the street.  I think that that Paradise Cafe must be owned by the same company that owns Panera, they are very similar.  It was good and we ate too much.  I was still feeling guilty about pigging out at Steak and Shake.  We didn't have any room for the cookies.
We make our plans for Friday.  We have several places we must go.
We were so pooped.


  1. I am glad you are back as I miss your posts when you are gone. I am wondering if the neon green relish is what we here in Oklahoma call hot dog relish.

  2. The Indy traffic isn't always that bad. It happened to be a bad day for accidents as well as the construction. Sounds like you hotel was right off Meridian street aka US 31. That construction is continuing from last year.


  3. Glad you made it through traffic safely and got back home.
    That wool is so pretty.
    What will you make with it?

  4. Glad you made it finally to your hotel. I love the wools you picked up - beautiful colors. love Annette
