We closed on the house this morning...it was a couple of days early, but we were ready and the builder was more than ready to go considering how long it has been empty. We went and got lunch and had a picnic in the middle of the living room floor as our first official act in our very own house! I am headed over there this evening to do some cleaning and then the moving fun will begin!
In a freaky "it's a small world" twist of coincidence, I checked out the Pioneer Woman blog that Carrie had commented on a couple of days ago. In one of the pictures was a nice shot of my butt...I'll leave any comments on that part of my anatomy alone. Anyway, I thought it was kind of weird that we were there at the same time, that this woman got a picture of me and that Carrie put two and two together. I was truly shocked when I looked more closely at her other pictures today and found a picture that Pioneer Woman had taken at Navy Pier on a different day that had my cousins daughter in it! Tell me how it happens that in a city of millions, my family ends up in two of her photos? Truly weird.
I'm now off to do a "bead craft" with my daughter. I told her we could do something special together because she has been so sweet lately as we drag her around for various house and family related errands. I am thinking a nice mother/daughter lunch and movie date; she is thinking bead craft...I guess she is saving me a penny or two on this date!
