*SIGH*







*SIGH*So I got this piece off of Craigs List last night for $25.
Actually, I sent Mr. Bill and my son.
Mr Bill called once he had the car loaded.
I asked him "Soooo, is it really pretty?"
Mr Bill said very hesitantly..... "NO!"
I was crushed.
Then he got home....I looked at her and I immediately knew she was going to be GORGEOUS once I get a couple coats of paint on her.
She has had a good life. She is pretty banged up.
I will give her a very comfortable home.
I better have a spot for her..... I really don't want to sell her.
It's weird, I keep called it a her.
I really should give her a sweet name.
So, that's where you come in. What should I name her???
How about Sally, Jane, Diane, Sandy. Maybe Susan, Emma or Sally.
Wait, did I say Sally already? It must be because my original name was Sally.
That was until my dad decided to change it. All my hospital records have White Out on them.
That's a whole other post~



Now, my second item of excitement....



I'M OFF TO THE :


I will be back on Monday with lots and lots of pictures.

I can't wait to meet so many of my new bloggy friends.



On a little sad note. As of 11:45 this morning...my Bradley will no longer be a Kindergartner.
He will be a 1st grader.
I was weeping all night about it.

Do any of you have a hard time with things like this??

Summer, BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!

Happy Weekend...See ya on Monday~

However, i am wishing you gals the very best time!! safe travels and can't wait to hear all about it!!! I'm a good sport that way!!!! Happiness all around for everyone!!!
hugs,

I love "Sally"! She will look great when you get through with it, I have no doubt!

My oldest "baby" will be a sophomore in college and the youngest "baby" a Jr. in high school...YES I still struggle with it! I wish they were little...I wish they were little....I wish they were little....

Have fun this weekend!

Anne Marie said...

you certainly are not alone by naming furniture....

i really thought i was going to the Farm Chicks show this year....
maybe I'll have better timing next.
have a great time!! (duh)

Nikki said...

I think Sally Mae will be beautiful with some paint. What color are you going to paint her?

Sarah said...

The buffet is fabulous! I can see it with shabby chic white and wearing on it. Hmm...Sally or Diane fit well.
Have a great time at the Farm Chicks! I can't wait to see your pictures!
Did you decide on the color of your kitchen?

I know I am not ready to admit Kaiden is a 1st grader either.

Devri said...

she's a beaut! yes, and you will cry your eyes out after dropping off the the 1st grade class room!

Just be happy! said...

have fun at the farm chicks shoe, I reaaaally wish I could go there to meet you!
Happy Summer!

That buffet WILL look great when you get it painted.
Just embrace the next stage of life that comes for Bradley, that's what I do with my boys. Have fun at the show! Can't wait to see pictures of everyone together.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I think it's going to look great once you get your hands on it! It definitely needs some paint, but oh how great it will look and think of all the storage you'll have in her!! I don't need to tell you how I'm dealing with my kids getting older, you read my post today. Go ahead and cry, then be thankful he's not going into Junior High like my son!!! Enjoy your time away and please do post tons of pictures!!!

Tara said...

Now that has potential to be an awesome buffet! I think she needs a southern name for some reason, like Naomi, or grace or Savannah, or maybe i just like Southern names! ;) See you soon, travel safe.

The Kramer Angle said...

Oh, man, I am so jealous! You're going to Farm Chicks too?!!! Lucky dog!

Have a safe trip. Take tons of photos. Scope out the best of everything and please report back. Because next year, I'm going!

P.S. I think her name should be Pearl.

Lisa said...

Oh have fun!! I think Susan would be a great name for her! Can't wait to see what you do with her!
Hugs,Lisa

Happy to see you there.... great buffet!

tracey said...

I can't believe you got that buffet for $25 -she's just ripe for a transformation. She looks like a Sara Jane to me:) So wish I were going to Farm Chicks with yall, oh well maybe next time. Hope you have a fabulous weekend, and as for the crying over Bradley becoming a 1st grader, I so understand...

Have a fabulous time at the Farm Chicks Show, Amy!

Cute - What color are you thinking of painter her? Oh, I'm a softie and I cry all the time. I embarrass Jacob to no end. We went to his Jr. High orientation and I cried. We went to his High School orientation and I cried, he got his permit and I cried.....I'm afraid to tell you it's just the beginning for you....~ Robyn

Jenny said...

What a beautiful piece of furniture!

Wish I would have known you were at the show...I would have loved to meet you. :(

Jeanneoli said...

It will look amazing once it is painted! So great to meet you this weekend...you had me laughing the whole time. With I could say an "S" but I think I am more a banana girl.....

Anne Marie said...

can't wait to hear about your trip!
