EightiesTurkeyPainting

Hello hello! I didn't do a Weekend In Photos this weekend. Sorry. Alas, I didn't break out my phone camera once. The reason is that we are moving to Los Angeles. The realtors came over, freaked out over our house (which I took as sign that they loved it. I hope.) and want to put it up for sale immediately. Which means, I've spent the past few days running around like a headless chicken (and looking that poorly also.) And will continue to run around headless for a few more weeks.

It's been chaotic and nerve-jangling.

But life moves on. And yesterday, as I was getting the littlest ready for school, I realized we had forgotten to make his turkey project, due, uh, yesterday (of course.) Luckily, middlest was home and he's a crafty one (in more than one way!) So the three of us worked together and made this adorable gobbler. We got to school and found out that we were the only people who remembered to turn in the project. So typical.

After everyone got home, we went to IKEA to get some decorative stuff for staging the house. And of course, the kids wanted to eat some meatballsgravylingonberrysaucemashedpotatoes. I'm so glad we did eat there, because this girl dressed up in the best 80s outfit showed up. Yes, I shot a photo. It needed to be recorded and shared. Tight, shiny red pants. Baggy  purple shirt with huge shoulder pads. High tops. And a headband! Priceless. I was in awe and love with the getup. I miss the 80s.
So I leave you with those lovely images, and I'm off to do more work on the house. I probably won't be here much for the next week or so, but I do have lots of scrappy goodies to giveaway when I return. So see you soon.

Oh my, what an outfit! I miss the 80s too. You've just inspired me to dig out some of my old photos to scrap. :)

And your house-staging project. Yikes! I will wish you well and send lots of positive house-selling and patient-mommy thoughts your way. Good luck, Linda! <3
