Let's Catch Up (long post)!

The time always seems to fly in between posts for me.
This last week has been particularly crazy for me though!
We've had our house on the market for 7 months
and finally got an offer...and so it begins!
The inspection is set for Thursday, and if all goes well,
we'll be closing on March 30th.
That's of March 30th,
I will go back to being a Southerner again!
(We're moving back to Tennessee.)

In the meantime,
the world of blogging has been very kind to me lately.
I received a very special gift from Adrienne (The Flying Bee) in the mail!
 Anyone who knows me, knows my love for lavender!
She sent me this amazing tote bag,
a lavender candle, and a bundle of dried lavender!
Adrienne is one of the sweetest people I've encountered with blogging.
She is such an honest, genuine, and thoughtful person.
Adrienne, if you are reading this...
THANK YOU ~ it made my day/week/month!

 I also recently received an e-mail from
stating that she had passed along the
Stylish Blogger Award to me!
With this award comes the task of telling 7 things
 about myself that you may or may not know!
  1. I was a singer for about 10 years and started out performing at an amusement park and went on to sing mostly in casinos and bars. I also traveled on the road with a band for 6 months. I gave it up when I became pregnant in 2006.
  2. I met my husband while I was singing at Fitzgerald's Casino.
  3. It took me 10 years to complete my college education because I kept changing majors and moving from city to city. I started with Paralegal Studies, then Music Business, then Journalism, and finally English / Professional and Creative Writing.
  4. I am obsessed with coffee and cute coffee mugs!
  5. I finally completed my craft studio last week and then we got an offer on our house. I'll have to start all over in Tennessee.
  6. I have one daughter, Bailey who just turned 4...she will be my last. I turn 35 this year and I am done! (I think I started too late).
  7. I collect white enamelware, ironstone pitchers, vintage bottles, and vintage metal and wood signs, and wire baskets.
I am now supposed to pass this award along
to some of the blogs that I've recently discovered.
I'm passing it along to the following...

(If you've been given this award,
 you're supposed to link back up to my blog,
list 7 things about yourself,
and pass the award along to 8 new blogs!)

In other name was mentioned in the latest
Flea Market Style Magazine.
I will forever be known as "The Junk Fairy" now.
(page 3 under "what's your favorite nickname")
It's fun to see my name printed in a National magazine -
especially one as great as this one!

I think that's all for now!
If you have time, head on over to some of the blogs I mentioned above.
Each of them has something special!
I hope your week is off to a great start!
