A few more touches, guess what I'm baking tomorrow night and I got another award!

I'm still decorating, oh yes, I'm still diving into my boxes. In fact, the cats think the garage is a whole other room now. I should just decorate the garage too! I do have to tell you I broke down and had to actually go out and buy nail polish, nail polish remover, cotton balls and hairspray. I gave up trying to find that box full of my important girly things. Now the garage looks like someone broke in and ransacked it. Oh well, it's just my little secret until I have to open it up and then have to explain to the neighbors why everything is falling out of the garage and half the boxes have been caught inside the door and are being pulled up with the garage door. Here's how I see it. If I never get to all the boxes it's just less I have to pack for my next move. :) That's another secret of mine. I'm great at justification. Isn't that a girl's prerogative?

Anyway, here are a few more touches I wanted to show you all. :) The first picture above is my favorite sign in the condo. It says "At the beach, time you enjoyed wasting is not time wasted". The wreath was also a $6.00 find at Target. I love great bargains.

I call this my Charlie Brown tree. It's a little pathetic looking don't you think? Then I decorate it and voila! It's beautiful. :) I also added the "partridge".



Another beach sign I love. Another simple message..."Listen to the Surf".


My last picture is something I had planned on doing tonight but got caught up on blogs (so actually I blame all of you). I'll be making something yummy tomorrow night. Can you guess what it is?

Last but not least, I won another award! The sweetest gal over at Tea Time with Melody gave it to me. Actually, her name is Melody! :) She has been a regular on my post (and vice versa) and she is so sweet! I mean double Splenda sweet! Thank you, Melody. I love your comments on my posts and am so honored you bestowed this gift upon me. :) You know how they say BFF (Best Friends Forever)....well I have a new saying for those initials, Blog Friends Forever. Cute, eh?

The rules of this award are:

1. Pick ten people to pass this on to.
2. Contact them and let them know you have chosen them for this award.
3. Also, link back to the person who gave you the award.

I will do this tomorrow and won't forget!



Well, time to turn in. My eyes are heavy and dang Quincy is schizoid tonight! I'll have to put him in his little straight jacket for a good night's sleep. ;)

Until tomorrow...

Chocolate banana muffins? That's my guess judging from the ingredients on your counter-top! I love your Charlie Brown tree, I wish I had one of those sitting around for some instant Christmas cheer! Here's a toast to Happy Living in your new home!

I think your little tree is adorable!

I have a wreath obsession, but most cost way too much for me, and then I think I'll make one, and, well, that never happens. You did well with your Target find!

I couldn't stop laughing. The who boxes going up with the garage door thing.. that was sooo me. Seriously! I love your little tree, that partridge is so cute. I want to know what goodies you are making! I see chocolate chips.. yummy. I had to ban them from my house. They never lasted long enough to be made into something!
Have a wonderful day!
