Do we look ready for Thanksgiving at our house?

My nephew and son have been busy helping out.

Our bathroom cabinet is painted but nothing is put back. We’d work on it but…

We’ve had a little situation.

Ignore the child wearing the undies on his head.

See the vacuum? That is next to my mom, who is trying to vacuum up the DEAD MOUSE! The one we can smell but cannot see. Yep, right on cue. Just in time for Thanksgiving. I am a dead rodent magnet right before parties and holidays. I am not kidding you, my friends will all attest to this. If anything can go wrong just before a party at my house, it will. And it oftentimes involves unpleasantness. Unfortunately, he did not get sucked up by the vacuum so we have to search elsewhere.

While we cannot see him we do see some droppings in our game closet. Yes, where our kids’ games are kept. So sanitary. Knight in shining armor has arrived home and will be searching through Disney Monopoly and The Game of Life very soon.

We will resume our regularly scheduled beautiful inspiring design blog after this brief interlude. I hope. In less than 48 hours I will be serving Thanksgiving in this house. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

PS. Now you have had a glimpse in to our hallway, Project #431 on my To Do list for the next year!

Virtual Vintage Prom

Because today is always a good day for a party. (and we can always put off Thanksgiving preparations until tomorrow…)

Oh, hello! Do come in! I am scurrying around trying to get ready for the vintage prom. I started out looking for the perfect, sweet pink dress. I found a dress I really loved, but I decided it wasn’t fancy enough so I went with the STOP STARING red dress. Why not I say? My last prom, in 1985, when I was a “princess” on the court, I wore a sweet dress. Tonight, we are going for the look at me red dress just to shake things up a bit! I still think it is kind of sweet, with the polka dots.

And of course, with a STOP STARING red dress you always need red shoes.

But just like Cinderella, I have lost one of my shoes! Hopefully my Prince Charming will find it and bring it to me before the stroke of midnight! Oh, of course he will! As soon as he is finished painting my bathroom cabinet! I do hope he will be ready in time to take me to the prom!

My day started out with a bit of a fright, I went running downstairs to the laundry room to get another box of Frosted Mini Wheats from our shelves. And lo and behold, my little mousey friend had nibbled on the plastic cereal bag! Noooooooo!!!!!!!!! There were holes all over it! Ewww!!! Not sure if he did that before or after the last Thanksgiving meal we set out for him, but either way, I am not going down to the laundry room again. Ever. Poor hubby will be running ragged between painting the cabinet and doing my laundry! But he is such a dear, he said he was on to my schemes, but, and I quote, “who else is going to keep you happy?” and of course I have to agree with that one. I am one lucky girl!

Now back to the prom, I might be the only married girl there, but hubby said he would drive me in our fancy car.

Ok, well I better finish getting ready, I have so much to do still!

My hair, what will I do with my hair?

Thanks for coming by, see you all there!
