Lucky #11

I came to the unsettling realization that this move was my 11th move in the last 6 years. Not cool. I must admit the move went quite smoothly and I am so very grateful to my family and friends that came and helped. You all have no idea what your help, love and support means to me. I am loving my new place and I can't believe its already been 2 weeks! Thanks to so much help I was able to get settled in pretty quickly and I've only snapped a few photos. Hopefully as I make the effort to post more pictures will continue to pop up.
Here are some highlights....

Lego Boba Fett Alarm Clock. Pretty much the greatest thing ever.
Check out this sight for endless amounts of more amazing geekery

Loving the bookcases I got and of course its nice to have a TV!

Dark picture from sitting on the floor but new couch and light from Ikea
And of course some neon art.

Thanks again to so many people how helped make all this possible. I am so happy to be in my new place!

I'm not often an insomniac but tonight I'm feeling it. I have to get up to get ready for work in a couple hours. Boo.

this one. She was only a couple months old at this point and had her "party dress" on for her first dinner party.


I was looking through old pictures on my computer today and found this one from years ago of the Dilly.
Oh little fluffy Dilly I miss you.

My mom was busy cleaning out her craft/ironing/sewing/clothes storage/holiday decoration/multi purpose room the other night. After hours of her being in there up to something, I decided to go in and pay her a visit and see what she was up to.
She was busy sorting through a pile of books and was almost done. I of course immediately started cracking jokes at the sheer size of the pile of books and was making fun that her keep pile was far larger than her "donate" pile. So I naturally started helping weed out the really donate ones in the keep pile.
man I stumbled across some GEMS

this was a personal favorite. Really Mom?

This was another winner I found. I MADE her get rid of it after reading the 101 uses to her to help her realize the absolute uselessness of this. (She did however make me keep the free bandanna that came with the book. Which was still in mint condition perfectly folded inside the front cover)
My mom was upset when I threw it to the donate pile and I challenged her that any useless information contained in this book could easily be found on the internet.
She called me out and said I could not.
I of course checked my favorite site when it comes to online shopping and look what we have here....
found in less than a minute
Internet 1- Mom 0

My other favorite part of the bandanna book? the back cover

For real?

furniture dreaming

ever since I signed the lease agreement on my new apartment I have been furniture dreaming. I have no real functional furniture (some bookshelves and decorative cabinets) So I have been searching for a couch, dining room table and chairs and a bed.
I found this table the other day and it is everything I have been looking for.
Definitely going to save my monies for this guy....

table found here
