Internet - finally! Now let me get you up to speed on the last few weeks...
I had a birthday.
The cupcake goodies came from the girls at work (so sweet). The photo (below) doesn't do my gifts justice but I got all kinds of super-cute home items from Lauren and Jaymi. Yes, that's a matching apron and rubber gloves (pink + zebra print, my favorite), some cute cupcake tea towels, individual cupcake holders (so cute!), silhouette bookends from Target (I had my eye on these!), a cute felt garland in "my colors" (made by Lauren), and more.
We had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. This is what it took to get me to do the hula in front of strangers:
There was lots of un-packing.
I bought a couch off Craigslist and made two trips to Ikea.
The decorating will probably continue for several weeks.
I love my kitchen.
Home sweet home.
Do you feel caught up now???
