A funny thing happened on the way to the forum,
um I mean the Barn House.
It was the season finale at Barn House today
and the girls and I decided to do some shopping.

My girlfriend Kristen showed up at my house this morning at 7am 
behind the wheel of a U-haul.
That's right a U-haul. 
This girl means business.
Meeghn showed up nursing her coffee after a very, 
and I do mean very rough week.
She was in desperate need of some fun and deserved it as well.

We had a goal, well, several goals.
1. A farm table for Kristen's new dining room
2. Possibly chairs and benches for this new table.
3. Goodies for the shop
4. Inspiration and a darn good time.

We were off.
First stop Vintage Gatherings where we scored some
very fun stuff a long with two chairs for the table we hadn't found yet.
Next stop Barn House.
Now I told the girls this could be a little muddy and wet sense 
both markets were on farms so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.
They did,  we all did.

This ended up not being the problem.
When we got to Barn House we pulled into the field
and low and behold it was muddy.
This was no problem for our boots but let me tell you 
that U-haul did not like it one bit.

Don't laugh we got stuck. That's right stuck.
This is when Kristen put that bad boy in park and 
asked for the boys.
Luckily the King of Tarte came to the rescue.
He wasn't having much luck either and we realized
we were all going to have to push.
We are started pushing and nothing was happening.
"oops," said the King, he was in neutral.
It came unstuck.
He then spent the next 15 minutes trying to get it up the hill 
and out of the wet field and parked.

Much thanks to the King of Tarte.
We couldn't have done it without you.

We did find a bench, a phenomenal table,
much inspiration and had a darn good time.

One for all and all for one!
Thanks girls for a great fall morning.
