Some color on this dreary Monday

Yes, I know I haven't blogged in a long, long time. I've been in a crafting funk, but I hope to be back at it soon.
This past weekend, John and I went to Peoria, Arizona to watch the San Diego Padres at Spring Training. It was a super fun weekend. More pictures of that later, but this is a quick post to show you something other than baseball. Yes, John, there is life before/during/after baseball!
We did so many things in three days. My feet are still tired from all the walking around. One of the free things we did, was go to the Southwest Home and Garden Show at the University of Phoenix Stadium. For you non-sporties, that is the home of the Arizona Cardinals. I think it is a very ugly stadium. It looks like the foil part of Jiffy Pop with it's all popped out. Yes, it's silver and puffy. I think the most fascinating thing about the stadium is that they roll the football field in and out of the stadium. They roll it outside to get sunshine and water and before game time, they roll it back in. Yes, the whole football field is on rollers. Isn't that cool?? Ok, so on to the picture. As we were leaving the Home & Garden Show, I stopped into the ladies room and the colors that met my eyes!! Check it out:
The one girl in the bathroom thought I was crazy to be taking pictures of bathroom stalls, but they are pretty, aren't they? Tell me they are. Please. Just so I don't keep thinking I'm some kind of nut. Well, I know THAT, but you know what I mean....
So, after the garden show, we went across the street to the giant Cabela's store. If you don't know what Cabela's is, it is a HUMONGOUS sporting goods store. This store has a museum AND an aquarium inside along with tons of stuffed (taxidermied) animals. Like big animals. Like MOOSE and ANTELOPES! More pics later. If you can't find your sport in Cabela's, then you made it up. Amazing store. Out front of the store, they had all these kayaks hanging and I thought they looked pretty cool:
So that's it for today sports fans. See you later in the week for some actual crafting. Thanks for stopping by today.

Nothing like getting away for a change of scenery to feed a missing muse. Love your colorful shots. Yes, the stalls are very cool.
