We left the city and firetrucks behind us, and made it about 5 miles outside of the city before we decided to stop for breakfast. It didn't take us long to realize we stumbled upon a nice little shopping area, excellent! After eating breakfast we shopped around for a few more hours and before we knew it, it was lunch time. Wow time flies when you're having fun. We ate at Chipolte, a first for both of us, and decided....maybe we better get back on the road to home.
We left the area and at least made it to Indiana before we made our next stop. We spotted this gigantic candle from the interstate and knew we had to see what this thing was all about. Come to find out it was a Warm Glow outlet store with millions of candles (and other neat items).
We shopped around this store for maybe an hour and once again said, let's get going. We piled in the car with our goodies and made it as far as the entrance of the candle place before making our next detour. We saw a sign for an antique mall with 500 vendors. We had to go!
One thing my sister and I are not good at is details. Throughout our trip we would spot signs and say "hey, let's go there", but we didn't pay attention to where....there....was. This was the case with the antique shop. Luck was on our side, we did stumble upon the place and went inside to find some treasures. Both of us found a couple little things we couldn't live without, but luckily the store closed so we didn't get to spend much time browsing. Finally, we were back on the road and we told ourselves, the only allowed stops were 1) dinner, 2) gas and 3) potty breaks.
In the end, it took us 12 hours to get home for a 6 hour drive. Pretty good I would say, wouldn't you?
