Friends, if you see a building like this, GO IN. I looove Hobby Lobby. Almost as much as Norstrom. For all of those who don't know what Hobby Lobby is, it's the most amazing home decor/crafts/everything you'd ever need store. And cheap! Everything will eventually go 50% off- never ever pay full price at Hobby Lobby. Just wait a week or two- the sale will come. There is one in my hometown of Columbus, Indiana, and I must say that it has enriched my life. And I'm not being dramatic. I seriously am obsessed with this place. Obsessed enough to always bring an extra suitcase when I visit Columbus in order to have a place to put my Hobby Lobby purchases for the trip home.
Anyway, I have despaired over Utah not having a Hobby Lobby. Where would I get my cheap home decor? How could I have a cute house without acquiring a mountain of debt? For the past three years (5 if you're counting non-married time) I have been irritated about this and wished that there was a Hobby Lobby available. I've even thought about opening one in Utah Valley, since I know it would make a killing here.
There is a Hobby Lobby in Utah! I was randomly driving in South Jordan with a coworker- and I spotted it. Amazing! We had to go in and experience the amazingness that is Hobby Lobby. Two hours later we left Hobby Lobby with tons of amazing stuff- all 50% off- picture frames, candle holders, vases, etc. Seriously, it was the best find ever.
That brings me to my next dilemma... how do I get this stuff in the house without getting ripped for it from Ben? We are currently on a strict budget, and there is no place for Hobby Lobby excursions. I had to think of a plan.... a really good one.
To be continued...
