Got The 222- On June22- For My 22, -My Birthday!

 (All my Birthday Pyrex!)
Well Readers, This week has been a whirlwind!
Thursday after work I had to make an emergency trip to Missouri for personal reasons, that's all I'm going to say about it, don't worry everything is fine now. But Friday morning, on a lighter and brighter note I met up with Patricia who was on vacation in Branson with her family and she and I went to visit Michael to traverse the great state of Missouri for great deals and Pyrex on my Birthday! I apologize for the helter-skelter pictures, my mind really wasn't on blogging but here we go!
(A lemonade selling Pilgrim...)
We visited the self proclaimed "Biggest antique mall in Missouri" but I was so mesmerized by everything I didn't think to get a picture, I picked up quite a few pieces of Pyrex and some other goodies I'll post once I get them to the Casablanca. After that...
We went here-
And there-
As is tradition on my Birthday Patricia found what she wants to wear to Thanksmass!
She found this GREAT 1950's white felt circle skirt. Unfortunately it was way to small for her, but she liked it so much were going to enlist a friends help in making an exact replica for Patricia to wear in December!
It's simple, border line tacky, and too perfect for words... we love it!
Stopped in to look here- at the Gillioz Theater in Springfeild MO.
Boy it was neat.
We stopped at the Springfield Whistler's Burger for lunch, they had a special  five (tiny) cheeseburgers, a basket of fries and a drink fro $9.00 my diets ruined but you cant beat that deal!
I had my first Coca-cola in 25 weeks, its the only one I get this year haha all part of that dang "diet" after lunch we hit up a few more stores and invited the sport of "Extreme Thrifting"
 Then Michael took us over to Pittsburgh KS for my FAVORITE fried Chicken!
(Happy 22nd Birthday to me!)
I LOVE this table so much, it came out of the original Chicken Annie's from the 50's and has a built in lazysusan.  I would simply adore finding one like this for the Casablanca! (If anyone out there knows where one is and is for sale, SERIOUSLY send me an email and lets talk!)
Its the BEST fried chicken I've ever had and Patricia and I are always willing to make the 400 mile trek to get it if we can!

Stuffed silly we headed back for a quiet evening at Michael's, he made me a "Minnie's Pie" (minus the "special ingredient"  for my Birthday!
Patricia  with Michael's help made a dream come true for me, She got me the Pyrex 222 solid yellow 8"x8" Brownie pan for my 22nd Birthday ON June the 22nd! I have hunted and hunted for this pan and she totally surprised me with it. They had been hunting it since January and now that I have it it completes my collection of 222's!
(Thank You Pat!)
I had a marvelous time, Michael was kind enough to let us spend the night so we could head the next morning. We stayed up till all hours chatting and enjoyed a viewing of "Steel Magnolias" (Patricia had never seen it) and laughed and cried along with the movie. The next morning when Patricia wouldn't wake up to get ready to leave Michael and I found an effective way to get her up!

After she swore heavily under her breath, recovered we had a breakfast fop chocolate pie and loaded our new treasures in the car. We said our goodbyes and thanked Michael for his hospitality, we really do appreciate him letting us come up and see him! It made my 22nd Birthday so special, thank you
Then we were of to the next leg of the Journey...

Tune in Wednesday!

I am so starring this for our trip to Springfield, MO in July. Do you have any other places we should visit? Flea markets or food? We plan on going to Funtiques in downtown MO and are staying the historic Best Western on Route 66. =)

Looks like you had an excellent birthday! It's always nice to meet another June baby. My birthday is the 7th, my daughter's is the 10th and my son's the 21st. We are all in good company!

Natalie - I stay in that Best Western every year for a conference. I love it! The prices are good, and it has a fun atmosphere. The place that we went first that Mick didn't name is called "Relics" and it is more on the south side of Springfield. There is also a good place that we didn't have time to visit called Ozarks Flea Market or Antiques or something like that.

Natalie at Chadwell Chonicles said...

Michael - Thanks! And we are very excited about the say in the Best Western. The rodeo is in town the weekend we'll be in Springfield too, so we may go to that. Yay!

Another Happy Birthday, which I think officially changes your birthday this year from a celebration "day" to a celebration season!
I discovered your writing through Laurel's Afton Station blog just this week and have enjoyed reading your recent postings. Would you, please, tell your friend Patricia that she needn't go on a diet--that felt "skirt" was made to fit around a Christmas tree--a genuine relic from the past, a Christmas tree skirt!
