Taking a little VaKa

I have just found out that I will be traveling again. I know that I have mentioned before that my oldest son John is in college in California. He attends one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, Pepperdine University...located in Malibu, California. It really is an amazing campus, with views of the Pacific Ocean. We haven't seen him since he was home for his Christmas break. And the other day when I was talking to him I could hear it in his voice that he was really home sick. (He is in his 2nd year there) and he really needs some love and probably some home cooked meals! LOL! So my dh and I decided that I should go out there and spend some time with him, cook for him and just hang out with him.
So on St Patty's day, I'll be flying across the country with Corned Beef in my luggage so that i can make him a St Patty's day dinner. I feel like the relatives from Italy...they come with cheeses and all sorts of things smuggled in! lol! I'll be staying through Easter and that will give me a chance to see my other sister who lives in Laguna Hills. I haven't seen her since the summer so it'll be a great visit.
If any of you know of any stamp sites and/or stores that I should visit, please let me know! lol!
my flight is booked, the car is reserved and I'm getting ready to go. I'm going to try to stamp some images and pack my prisma color pencils so that i can work on something while I'm away! I'll leave the gamasol at home!
I will take plenty of pictures while I'm there and share them when I get back.
Hopefully, I'll be able to post something new before I leave, but i really do have so much to do! The dreaded food shopping, preparing some meals so that the rest of my family will have something to eat while I'm gone. (8 days of Chinese take out and Pizza is a little too much, don't you think?)
If I want time to stamp something I better get moving.
Talk to you soon!
Smiles :)
