Footstool or Bust!

I wanted to share with you what life is like working/being friends with Hooper... It all began with an email....
The email was titled: I Need 2!!! and this picture of a footstool was attached.
After talking to Hooper, I learned this was the greatest footstool she'd ever seen and 2 in her living room would change her life. BUT our Homegoods and ALL the Homegoods in Raleigh only had more in red not white.  For the NORMAL person that would have been the end of the story... For Hooper, just the beginning...

So Sunday, I am relaxing and this comes across my phone titled:
"The things I'd do for a footstool" (oh dear...)
ONLY TOOK ME 1 SECOND TO REALIZE HOOPER DRUG HER WHOLE FAMILY TO MYRTLE BEACH TO GET THE LAST WHITE FOOTSTOOL IN THE U.S.

my response to her text:  OMG- did u go out of town and drag your family like innocent bystanders to find one? Where r u? Myrtle Beach? U r on crack...

 Later when I spoke to her I realized Read (her hubby) and kids had no idea why they went to Myrtle Beach. When the family was tossing around ideas of what to do Sunday, Hooper casually threw out let's go to M.B. and eat at Planet Hollywood (3 miles from Homegoods).
What a fun Mom! They all thought it was a great idea! Hooper had the footstool on hold in MB 'til Sunday night. A detail no one really needed to know...
But, Hooper was right... It does look gorgeous...
And did she really do anything more then multi task?

Great find Hooper and what a deal at $79.99. (we're just not counting the gas-$50, lunch-$60, aquarium-$40, mini golf- $30 and ice cream-$20)

Happy Monday,
Bye, bye birdie,

Okay, that's hysterical! And I hate to say this, but I can relate. It's also funny because I actually saw one stool in red a while back and thought, "that would be really cute in another color." Of course, Hooper would find the only other white one. Design is about determination! Good job, Hooper, it looks fabulous!
