First of all…Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mothers out there. And a special shout out to MY mom! Here’s a pic of me with my mom and my two sisters at our wedding a few years ago. I love how our smiles all match!
I owe my love of decorating and party planning to my mom!!! Love you, Mom!
And now…on with my catch up post!
First of all, I want to share with you the cute thank you gift I received from my friend Hallie (and her dog Cheka). The hubby and I watched her pup last weekend, and Hallie was nice enough to give us a bottle of vino. Cheka is also quite thoughtful and wrote Paul the Dog a very nice note and sent over a box of doggy treats. Thanks Hallie and Cheka!
On the very same day Hallie gave us the wine, my friend Leslie gave me something that I’ve been lusting after for awhile (which she didn’t ever know about!). This organizing gem:
She told me she just saw it in Costco and had to get it for me! How thoughtful is that?!? She said she just wanted to see what sort of use I could come up with for it.
Leslie is one of the most thoughtful people I know. Once I was bummed at lunch because there were no bananas in the dinning hall where we work, and I was craving a banana with peanut butter. The next day, she brought me a little baggy with a little jar of peanut butter and some bananas for me to keep at my desk. Seriously. Most. Thoughtful. Person. Ever.
So be sure to stay tuned to see how I end up using this little organizer!!!
And lastly, I’ve made two recent craigslist purchases! This end table for $10:
And this desk for $50 (which I’m going to refinish):
I’m so excited about both of these!
I hope you’ve had a relaxing Sunday, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!!!
