It Won't Be Long Now...

I'm trying to keep everyone updated as the big day gets closer. We have a little over two weeks before we move and boy are we getting excited! Ray has been going over and painting the rooms a little each day. He can only do so much before he gets too tired. We have bought area rugs and the girls have bought new bedding and curtains for their rooms. We just need new bedding for our room but I am so picky!

This past weekend we went to my sister in-laws house for Mother's Day. She lives beside a cow pasture. Abby was so fascinated with the cows as well as they with her. If we got too close they would back off but they would walk right up to the fence to see Abby. You can see this on my new header picture. It was a beautiful day here in VA on Mother's Day.

Eleni was invited to the prom a school. She was invited by a Junior who is a good friend. She was so excited when he asked her how could I say no. Next Saturday is the big night. We have everything her dress has been altered. Friday I'm getting off early to get her nails and toes done and the Saturday morning she will get her hair done. I can't wait to show you all pictures!

This morning when I woke up my Mom informed me I had a package. I was so excited it was from Carmen of Waxed Out Creative Life. I won her give away and let me tell you the package smelled so good Abby and Lucy (my Mom's dog) were all over me as I opened it. I can't wait to set everything up in my new house! If you ever get a chance to purchase anything from Carmen her candles and soap smell so good pictures don't do justice for her work!

Seems like a lot of people are getting the blogging blahs. It makes me sad to see blogs end but I understand. One thing about my new house is it's smaller and a rancher. I will miss my pool but I am looking forward to a simpler life. Less cleaning and stressing and more time enjoying life. Which is he one thing I am really looking forward to come June! Until next time thanks for always dropping by and for sticking by me

I love the picture of Abby and the cows. Its so cute!

I can just imagine how excited you are about your big move. I know I would be! I can't wait to see all the pictures. You mentioned missing your pool.... maybe you can find one like ours. We got it on sale at Sam's Club and I love it... (except for now when I am having to get it cleaned up and ready for summer)... Its nice that we can take it apart if we ever move.

Hope your having a wonderful weekend. Planting the garden here. Nothing like playing in mud. lol I look forward to seeing Eleni's prom pictures too!

Take Care,

Hi Donna,

So Eleni's prom is this Saturday night? I can't wait to see pics from it! I hope she has a wonderful time!

Love the cow header...that's so cute! My brother has a cow pasture next to his house and they are forever "escaping" and getting into his yard! lol! They're funny to watch.

Congratulations on your win from Carmen! You so deserve it! I'm glad you won!

It's getting close....very soon you will be living in your own home. I was thinking about you this morning as I was on the gazelle exercising about how God's timing is perfect and for a reason. I'm so happy for you! Can't wait to see pics of your new place!

Have a great weekend, Donna!
