As Lisa has posted we bought a home and need kitchen appliances, so spent the day looking and comparing models and prices. Not looking forward to setting up dates for workmen, installers, etc. It's exhausting for Lisa as she's still not feeling well and we are just beginning!
We went counter-top shopping today. Talk about exhausting. We both spent a lot of time researching online so we knew what we wanted but color was a problem. We could not agree. My mom likes the darker and I like the lighter. We compromised with "Typhoon Green." We are going with a monochromatic style - meaning we do not like a "country" kitchen and we like things simple, not a lot of clutter. So it will be mirror greens, grays and creams. ;> It's nice to be designing and creating again. That's not our slab below but the color is close.

Lisa says we're going shoe shopping, okay but only really need a pair of new tennis shoes. Shazam! Looks like I needed more than I thought and she didn't even blink paying for them. Compared to some, the amount of shoes I own now, including the new ones, is nothing. For me it's a bonanza.
We got the news of our closing day is next Friday. So guess what world we officially have bought a home in GA. Holy Guacamole do we have a lot of work to do! We celebrated by going shoe shopping. I really stretched myself once again. Adding more Nike flipflops and some Fila's to my closet.

I have had this laundry bag for over ten years, keeping it in my suitcase for dirty clothes when traveling. Almost three years ago I moved here and made it my clothes hamper, hung in on a hanger in the closet. Sad to lose, it held many memories not just dirty clothes. Especially since it came from the "happiest place" in my home state.

Ohhhhh so happy! My godson, Jacob is playing baseball again this year. So wish I could see him play live but still full of joy that he is playing and loving the game. He is playing catcher this year. No letting his mind wander like in rightfield!

March Madness 2012 has ended and so did my run of winning picks. My choice for the championship was the University of North Carolina. Kentucky wins, which means I had the wrong team but the right school colors, blue and white! Yep, and blue is how I'm feeling.

It was this kind of day. Looking out the sun-roof, riding in the truck with no particular plan but ending up at a large plant outlet. This place was packed, people pulling little flat carts with numerous varieties of fauna and flowers. Reminded me of my days working in the nursery in Hayward where it was plants and flowers in hothouses and steamed up glasses!
We went to the Grower's Outlet today. Finally living in a place that if we plant Bougainvillea it might survive. One of my favorites and they were so beautiful. So I pose the question when making strawberry shortcake do you just slice, mash or slice-n-mash? We slice-n-mash with some sugar. Yummy!
