Whew, I am so glad this weekend is almost over! I want to thank all of y'all for your ideas on what to put in Sweet Tea's bag o' treats. So many of y'all wanted to add something to the bag and I'll be sure and let Theresa know how much she is loved and appreciated by all of you. I've loaded it up based on your suggestions...so if she doesn't like the candy choices...I'll just blame y'all, 'kay? One thing I almost didn't put in the bag was a gift card courtesy of Lee at Inspired Comblogulations. Did y'all know she has a B&B? I didn't! It's just outside Gladewater and the photos look dreamy. You can check out her website, Le Shiloh Shabby Chateau, here. How generous of her was that? Thank you so much Lee! Like I said, I almost kept that for myself....but I didn't think I could pull off convincing Lee that this pair of trashters were T and Cruz!
As hinted at, I did place everyone's name in the bubbling cauldron and pulled out a name to receive a little treat from me as well. Sue at Country Roads, if you'll send me your address, I'll send it on to you by bat express!
What do you think of my girls? I don't know if I told y'all, but Jenn gave notice at her job to stay home with Bella...at least until May. With the RSV season in full swing, she just wasn't comfortable with leaving her. It will be tough, but God has been with her from the beginning and I know He will carry them through. I believe this was the wisest decision (though extremely difficult) to make. They didn't have the normal bonding that takes place between a baby and mother and this will allow Jenn to make up for lost time.
I've said it before and I'll say it again...that baby just knocks my socks off! When she gives me that big ol' gummy grin and all those dimples show....well, you know! Oh and the laugh! Jenn says she sounds like a donkey...no cute little giggle for my girlie! She wants to be heard! What can I say? I'm hopelessly in love with both my girls!
I gotta tell you...I would have loved to have been able to join them on that couch after we got back from Athens Saturday.
C.D. and I spent Saturday totally redoing the space...literally. Shoppers thought we were moving out...I kid you not. We pulled furniture that had too much of a spring/summer feel and replaced it all with warmer colors. (I forgot my camera and used his...hence the poor photo.) While working, I got the opportunity to meet a wonderful lurker (her words, not mine)! Debbie from Alexandria, LA...it was great getting to meet and visit with you! Come back and see us anytime!
We got the first layering done around 5:30 p.m. We're going back Wednesday to take the second layer. Let me tell you kiddies...while junking looks like a lot of fun (and it is to a point)...it is also a lot of work! I am so beat up and bruised from moving furniture! I deserve a Purple Heart or something for all the cuts, scrapes and back aches that comes with the job, but it has to be done or a booth becomes stale. Y'all that are or have been in the business know what I'm talking about! If you don't care, shoppers won't either!
Talk about a glutton for punishment! Cat Daddy and I will be moving into another space this coming weekend. I'll tell you all about it once we get it set up!
I guess y'all had a lot of snicker treaters. We weren't home long enough to hand out any candy so woe is me...I guess I'll just have to eat it! When we finished in Athens, Jenn called and said they were coming by to let me see Bella in her costume. Jenn had bought her the cutest little leopard costume...but I'll guess she'll have to wait till next year to wear it. It looked like the leopard had ate her...seriously...it just swallowed her...all 11 pounds of her! Oh and btw, that is me in the tutu and skinny legs in the previous post photo. Sister Trash is the pretty one on the left!
Instead Jenn dressed her in a tutu or as she likes to call it...an attitutued! Wonder where she gets that? Yeah, I agree...Cat Daddy! And speaking of attitude...take a look at my 7 year old g'daughter! Talk about paying for your raising...I pity my poor oldest melon head!
With that, I'll just end with...Say goodnight Graycie.
