RT does TNNA

Two Sundays ago, fresh off of my Oklahoma trip, I drove Roaming Tigger and LYS co-worker Valerie out to Columbus, Ohio, for a day at TNNA.

We had a wonderful time and are expecting lots of really awesome things to come into the store over the next few months. Pictures aren’t allowed on the show floor, so here’s a little bit about what else we did that day.

We were lucky enough to get rock star parking when we pulled up to the Columbus Convention Center at 9:45 on Sunday morning. Yay for free parking on Sundays! You can see the entrance to the convention center right across the street. I don’t think it would have been humanly possible to park closer.

After a few hours on the floor, it was time for lunch. We all headed across the street to the North Market and everyone picked the food they wanted for lunch. Oh, and we had ice cream. But I’ll get back to that.

There was a Lorna’s Laces ad on the display at the end of the crosswalk to enter the convention center.

For dinner, Michelle and Janice took us to their favorite Columbus restaurant, Lemongrass. It was yummy.

And then, of course, we needed more ice cream. Jeni's! On my first trip, I had Salty Caramel and Dark Chocolate. The second trip, I had Buckeye State and Honey Vanilla. All of it was really yummy.

All in all, I’d certainly do it again, given the opportunity. I’d love to take a class or two next time, but if I continue to go to the softball World Series, it’s going to be tough. But who the hell knows what I’m going to be doing a year from now, so I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to show you some of the stuff we got at TNNA, once it comes into the store!

Looks like fun!
I gotta say, whoever does Lorna's ads is brilliant. I haven't seen a lame one yet.

You are making me crave ice cream, and it's only 10 a.m.!

I want some ice cream, too and it's not even lunch time. TNNA always sounds like a blast.
