This week, I had the pleasure of guesting with the amazing design group Poppy Street! I would like to add a special thank you to Melissa- gumdrop*shop, for the invitation. I decided once again to go with the Vida design. I had so much fun getting to match up with one of my best friends, Jen, barefoot*divas, for this fun launch!

I plan to add pictures as we go through the various stages. We're going to assemble it in the unfinished basement, so the background of the pictures won't be the prettiest setting, but that's ok! I think the part she is going to enjoy the most is when it is time to go furniture shopping! I know I had a blast doing that with this dollhouse. That's the only time you can furnish an entire room for less than $50! I think the most difficult part will be picking a color for the new house. She's thinking purple, and let's just say, I'm not! So, off to the paint store in Monday morning! I'm sure we'll find a color we both love!

We have friends in different contexts and areas in our lives. I would like to thank my friends for being there for me. I would like to start by thanking my husband, daughter, and mother. Having friends in your "family" is very important, and I am blessed to have many!
I would also like to thank my "online" and "ebay" friends for all the support and help that they send my way! I would especially like to send a shout out to Jen, Sarah, Jodie, Karen, Nicole, Canela, Nomi, Andrea, Samantha, Brandi and Jeramie! You are the best!

You grew up in the 80's if....
What things do you tie to growing up in the 80's ??
You know the profound meaning of "WAX ON, WAX OFF.
"You've ever ended a sentence with the word "SIKE."
Two words: Hammer Pants.
You wore stone washed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it.
You still get the urge to say "NOT" after every sentence.
You know all the words to Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name"
You remember when mullets were cool!L.A.Gear....need I say more?
You owned a banana clip.
You played pong, Pac Man, etc..
You remember life BEFORE MTV entered the scene
How many jelly bracelets did you have up your arm?
Don't forget Leg Warmers & fishnet stockings!
My little PonyStrawberry Shortcake & Blueberry Muffin were awesome dolls
Smurfs- la, la, la, la, la, la
Press your Luck- Big Money, Big Money, Stop! WHAMMY!!!!
Zach was surely hot in Saved by The Bell!
We all went to the theater to see Back to The Future.

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of wine...
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.. The pebbles rolled Into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous 'yes.'
The professor then produced two glasses of wine from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. 'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things; your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions; things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.' The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else; the small stuff. 'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you' 'Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. Do one more run down the ski slope. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the wine represented. The professor smiled. 'I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of glasses of wine with a friend.'
Thanks for sharing this with me Andrea!

Here are the rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
1)I have started taking piano lessons again. I started almost 2 years ago and am so happy that I did.
2) Until 6 years ago, I always lived in states that touched the ocean or a gulf and living in a land locked state makes me feel a little clostrophobic.
3) I love to travel! My family always says I'm happiest when I'm on vacation!
4) I love anything pink!
5) I really don't like birds except for flamingos (they're pink).
6) In my life, I've been attacked by 4 birds, guess that's why I don't like them
7) My daughter caught a wild baby bunny 2 years ago, and to everyone's amazement (including the vet), it's still alive. I've tried to release it, but it won't leave. My family now calls me "the rabbit whisperer"
I'm going to tag:

I think I was most excited to make my playlist! How fun to have my own little soundtrack! My first selection was Pachabel's Canon in D. I actually managed to play this piece in a piano recital in November. Yes, at my age, I was in a piano recital! This was the first ever recital that I made it through entirely! In high school, I would get such stage fright that I never finished a song! I owe my current piano teacher (the nicest lady you'll ever meet) many thanks. She is the BEST piano teacher ever, in my opinion, and so very kind. She sat by me the entire song, and yes, for the first time ever, I played Pachabel's Canon start to finish!
I hope to have more exciting news as the days go on, however the recital was quite a victory for me!
