A Great Gift

Well, I survived!!!
I successfully packed up the house, closed without a hitch, and moved to our new condo on Short St.  Luckily, I had a team of help; my mom gets the award for Champ of All Time!  Seriously.  You wouldn't believe how much energy, determination and words of encouragement she gave me. She'd keep me going even though I was exhausted.  It seemed that she never grew tired?  Unbelievable.
The Xhemajli girls were a close second.  Lemme tell you, those girls are amazing little human beings.  They are a family my parents adopted through their church (from Kosovo) many years ago.  They had 3 girls at the time and now they have 5 children- 4 girls and a boy.  Anyway, they came over and helped me clean, organize, tranport bags and boxes all while telling you how beautiful you are and making us laugh the whole time.  Kim and Karen brought over champagne!, food, wine and helped me during their visit.  Great friends they are.  I was so greatful that Connie kept Lucy the entire weekend I moved.  And my my dad was a quiet support.  :-)  He can't do as much as he used to, but always wants to help and does what he can.

I tend to start typing and then get off course.  I wish I was posting some pictures of the condo but I need to find the cord to my camera and I will get some up ASAP.

In the meantime, the new issue of Lonny is online. 

I still complain about it being online and wanting a printed version.  So when my mom asked me what I want for my birthday, I didn't hesitate- a copy of Lonny Magazine!  The cost is anywhere from $30-$40 and up.  And even though they are expensive, I'd like to eventually purchase them all. 

The one I asked for is from February/March 2010.


Why yes!  I DO want the skinny on spare space.

I recieved this chevron striped make-up bag as a gift.
I carry it everywhere, everyday.

Retro pink bathroom?  Liven it up with some great wallpaper.

Love everything about this space.

I am so in love with faux bamboo, especially chandeliers. 
I had one in my daughters room and was going to take it with me when I moved. 
In the 11th hour however, was so tired I could hardly move and left it hanging.

Just a couple more things to finish in the condo and
promise to post pictures sooner than later.

Have a great weekend!
