{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Thrift Share Thursday no 14

Thrift Share Thursday no 14

I’m back for Thrift Share Thursday no 14.  I’ve gotten out to my local Goodwill’s & Unique thrift shops, as the weather the last couple of days has been quite rainy here in the north east US.  I really can’t take the heat of garage sale shopping in July.  It’s really just to much for me.  I am a much happier sun bather than sweaty shopper.  lol

I tried to make it out to the thrift shops on 4th of July did you know most holidays they hold 50% off sales.  Well it was a total bust for me.  You really need to go with a partner who will get on line while you look around and vise versa.  The lines were just insane.  So I got absolutely nothing.  Think the next holiday I might just try end of the day as opposed to first thing in the morning.  I know the early bird gets the worm.  But this bird don’t want to struggle for my worms.  I’ll take the leftovers lol.

So here is what I did get to share with you all for this

On My Mind Monday the birth of this grandma

On My Mind Monday the birth of this grandma

Today I wanted to share with you the birth of this grandma. A birth story from my point of view on becoming a grandma. I’ve already showed you all how irresistible this little guy is. If you follow me on my instagram or facebook then you get to see it all time/quite allot. He is my new obsession. Do you believe I even took a blogging/thrifting break. Because I was home falling more and more in love with Damon Thomas. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to May 15th.

My daughter J’s birth-plan included me being in the room with them (her boyfriend & her) for a normal delivery. I stressed about it for weeks before the birth. I thought I would be way to worried for my only child/daughter, to be of any help to her. I thought I would be way too nervous. J insisted I be there so I was.
She thought her water broke around 7 am on Wed May14th.  She called me and I came running home.  I asked her to shower and see how she was feeling and we got to timing her contractions.  She showered and decided she needed a nap.  I ran off to the car wash and set about having the car ready for the hospital drive.  Once I got home she was still napping.  What the what what at this point I was getting worried.  I wanted her in a hospital supervised by nurses and doctors.  She asked me to wait a while and by 5 pm we were off to the hospital.  I was a nervous wreck but keeping under control.  I was able to get us to the hospital in one peace.

Sue and I are taking a little summer break from our Meet the Neighbors linky party.  We are taking this time to work on home projects we both hope to show you soon.  And spend some quality family time on the weekends.  We have loved meeting new bloggers at this party and looking forward to doing so again in Sept.  We will each continue blogging so make sure to visit and check out what we are up too.

We sincerely apologize for not being able to let everyone know sooner and believe you will all understand.

Accent walls NY Apt entryway

Accent walls NY Apt entryway

I love the dramatic effect of accent walls.  I have more than a few in my apt.  Which I’ve showed to you all here accent wall/walls.  A very good friend and ex co worker from my time at Amex asked if I would help her bring some pizzazz to her place.  She lives in a NY apt which she happily owns so can do anything to her walls her heart desires.  She has lived in her apt with bare white walls for 3 years and has decided to jazz up the place.   Luckily she fell totally in love with my hair brained idea and here’s how I created for her

Thrift Share Thursday is back baby! I’ve gotten in a few trips to some different thrift shops.   It’s funny how much time and attention baby takes up, but luckily I get to walk away and say OK have fun Mommy & Daddy.  Grandma’s off to do her own thang.   It’s certainly great that I’m not on the night shift with them either.  lol  I get to pick and choose the time to spend with him and it’s such fun.

Time to share with you all my thrifty finds…
