Editor’s note: Today I am in a blouse and skirt from Ann Taylor, belt from Cole Haan, and shoes from Manolo Blahnik.
Happy Monday!!! It was a beautiful spring weekend and we had a great party here on Saturday! Everything turned out perfectly for Mackenzie’s party and the champagne was flowing. I had mother’s flowers and gifts set out in the kitchen to greet her on her birthday Saturday morning... I set them out after she went to bed. I hid the flowers downstairs on Friday night. I love to have surprises like that! All in all it was a terrific day and I was one tired lady!!! Job accomplished on every front. I even got my walk in on Saturday morning. Lacie Rue was not invited to the party... but she came with me to “the workplace” in the morning to vacuum and bring the food. I guess you could say we had our pwn private celebration in the morning.... even though she hates the vacuum cleaner. As long as she rides in the car somewhere she is a happy camper. My Monday started out with a flat tire.... not the best way to start a busy work week! I was blessed to get a man through Volvo on call that had air on his truck.... so he put air in my tire and I got the tire plugged by 11:00 and made it into work. Lacie Rue did not like the tire place and was in the front seat when I came back from paying. It scared me to death when I got back to my car and she was not on her blanket in the backseat!!!!! I guess there was too much commotion and noise going on there!
Tomorrow I meet the ladies to pack up the house in Arlington for the construction to commence . I am so excited to get this job underway!!!! The wallpaper is here, tile delivered, and furniture waiting to be put in place. Let the magic begin!
Here are we my favorite Instagram posts from last week . Enjoy and have a super Monday!!!
