ONE. Mimi is on Permanent Vacation
This week was a great one as there have been some big, life changing things going on in our family and today I am so excited to share the news that Mimi has officially retired!! My role model, rock, constant champion, and incredible mother is now officially done with her full-time career. She has poured her heart and soul into her work and now it’s time for her to sit back, relax, and enjoy some much deserved time off.
I have to take a minute to brag on Mimi for she had so many co-workers telling her how they appreciated her, valued her advice and support, and how much they would miss her. She traveled to South America a few weeks ago for her last big work trip to hand off her responsibilities and she came back grinning from ear to ear, telling us they had made a slideshow for her, and had put their customers on the phones on hold so that they could give her a standing ovation. Talk about going out on top! I am so proud of you Mom… though I might miss our in-between conference call talk sessions, I am even more excited for more quality time together with you and your grandbabies.
TWO. Friendly Funnies
THREE. Music City Masquerade
We have the Junior League of Nashville Music City Masquerade black tie event coming up next month and of course I’m already browsing online to find the perfect ensemble for the big gala. I am so excited to get all dressed up, put my hubby in a tux, and spend the night with some of our best friends drinking and dancing the night away…they are even having the band we had for our wedding (Scat Springs) so I know it will be a fantastic time!! Given the fact we rarely get to do things like this, I definitely want to buy a fun gown with lots of details. These are some of my favorites so far: (however, I need a sale to come ASAP, I’m not paying that much money for a dress…mama is on a budget)
FOUR. Bathroom Progress
I know, I haven’t officially done an entire house tour yet, but that’s probably because we have been under renovation since the moment we closed on our house. We started with two bathroom redos and are inching our way to being done…thank the Lord. It’s been constant dust, loud noises, selecting hardware/lighting/paint/wallpaper, and I am ready to have these spaces complete. Here is a little snapshot of the current state of our powder room on the main floor…sure, it looks plain here, but after next week, it’s going to look MUCH different. I went with a bold wallpaper design, classic sconces, a fun sink console, and of course, a mini chandelier…stay tuned for the fun reveal!!
FIVE. Alcohol Slushie…Yes Please!
It’s been a rough week, no doubt, and with more horrid winter temps lurking in our not too distant future, this drink concoction is calling my name like none other. Follow this link for the recipe to make this yummy Vodka Lemonade Slushie.
