It's been a hectic last week to say the least:
- 2 trips to Nashville, more on this later...we're planning some fun stuff for our Studio Calico peeps ;)
- dentist/doctor's appointments (3 to be exact)
- photography class
- 1 trip to Louisville to pick up Natalee's cake
- Natalee's Birthday
- online shopping at BR
- online shopping at Zappos
- online shopping at eBay
- cleaning out the farmhouse....
- oh, and sneak night is tonight, so had to prepare for that.
Here's some photos to prove my last week to you:
I'm thinking of getting these....they're a bit out there for me, so let me know what you think. I'm hoping they'll go well with lots of tops with jeans or white pants. I have lots of solid tops, so I think the pattern might be fun.
This is on my definite list. So far, there's already been too many times my shoes have been dirty and muddy and I don't want to have to worry about cleaning my good running shoes. They're expensive, but I expect them to last at least 20 years. Do any of you have these? If so, let me know what you think.
I got this skirt and was a bit worried about it at first, because it is definitely high-waisted and it's the only skirt I've ever had like it. I love the fabric and the fit, but it's going to take some getting used to.
I loved this dress from Banana Republic, and I knew with the cut, it would look good on me, so I decided to wear it on Easter with a yellow necklace...anyway, Greg said I looked puritanical. So, I guess I was a hot, bargain-getting Puritan yesterday, because I got it for 30% off plus an extra $10 off and free shipping.
Natalee and Luke at her birthday party.
Lorie helping Natalee blow out her candles. We would have been there for days if she was blowing them out herself. I think more wind hit her chin than anything else.
The cake I got from Adrienne's, a company in Jeffersonville, IN (yes, I know I said I went to Louisville, but this shop is at Exit 0 right across the Ohio River, so I actually spent longer in Louisville than in Indiana.)
And, last but not least, the HUGE mess I have to clean up at the farmhouse. The previous owner, well...let's just say it was a bitter divorce situation, so the house wasn't left in the best condition. They had 5 kids, plus it looks like they invited lots of mice over to play....
I plan to post more before/after photos as we work through this project, but here's just a few to whet your appetite.
(Disclaimer: I just learned that mice droppings and stains and bumps and nastiness, in general, doesn't tend to show up as well in photographs as it does in real life, so you're going to have to trust me that it's N-A-S-T-Y and that Greg gets onto me for not cleaning with a mask and gloves on.)
