I then went to pick up a bit of this and bit of that at Hobby Lobby. I love shopping their Clearance wall in the back of the store.... so many possibilities and options to play with and not have to spend a lot of moo la! I found a wonderful paint brush for pennies... I can hardly wait to use it on my painting for the FUR Ball auction in September. I spoke to the coordinator tonight and we will connect after 9/10/13. Ken called me to let me know our closing is going back to next Friday 9/6/13.... the previous owner is still on her honeymoon in Europe. I was so ready to get back into the house this Friday...but this gives me time to continue my selections for the new small "Grandma" house that is only minutes away from the grand children.
I then met with my hair stylist...at Walmart...so fancy! She does an amazing job and I told her I really missed her when she was on vacation. I came very close...scarily close to whacking my hair off to a boyish bob hair cut...the humidity today was extremely high and my head was very HOT!
I then made my "senior citizen" rounds to Goodwill and St. Vincent 's Thrift store and found some very exciting buys for 25% off their prices. Then at TJ MAXX I found pillow shams in bright colors down to $3.00 from $36.00....some Ralph Lauren napkins in a summer white ...4 for $3.00. And all summer I have lusted for a pair of comfortable Born sandals that were originally $65.00 ...and today I bought them for $10.00. This is a great day...a haircut...and bargains for the new house. They are now packed in the big plastic bins and ready to move!
I am going to share a few of the birthday boy on his special third birthday on Monday! Lyndon Allen just makes me smile...the innocence of a three year old....pure childhood optimism and LOVE.
This is a serious 2 person job...icing and lots of sprinkles.....
Well it is the icing that Lyndon Loves the very most.......
Remember to celebrate the heart moments in your life while you can! Imagine and Live in Peace.
