my mother’s upcoming trip

On my mind this Monday is my mother’s upcoming trip this week has caused me to rethink my plan for August.  I told you all last week some plans I had for what would get done around here.  Well here’s how my mom has thrown a monkey wrench in all that.  She decided to go visit my uncle her brother back home in their country of Dominican Republic.  She is leaving tomorrow morning and will return in 10 days.  Well the last time she visited I mention I would go give the paint in her apartment a fresh coat.  She is not a lover of change and she screamed and balked I should do no such thing.  So I didn’t and upon her return she was disappoint and told me so.  So even thought she has balked all week about me not touching a thing in her apartment while she is away.  I know this time it MUST get done.


my mother’s upcoming trip

I know she will be having a good time with friends and family.  I’ve shared with you all a trip to my mother’s home land in the past.


My mom’s place is a tiny {to me} 1 bedroom apartment.  She moved in there my final year of high school.  So she has been there a long long  long time lol.   And her landlord is awesome and has painted her place in the past.  I just wanted to do it for her myself  now.  So I had pick out her favorite shade of pink her favorite color.  She is usually wear some {or  few at the same time} shades of pink.

Here’s a sneak peek of her color choice and the white milk glass piece I picked up this weekend in PA.


No surprise she went a light one called Lighthearted pink from Sherwin Williams.

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook.  Then you already know I was in PA yesterday.  And you will get to see this week how my mom’s bathroom gets a face lift.  How it goes from a dingy white to a pretty pink.


One of my sisters and I just took a day trip out there yesterday.  We had a fabulous time visiting my brothers and their mom {my second mom, I love this woman}.  She, my sister and I hit up a local flea market.  And I found that amazing white milk glass piece for $1!  It was in great condition no nicks just dirty and that washes off.  She made us a fabulous Dominican breakfast for lunch and we got to spend awesome family time together.  I wasn’t even able to photograph the lunch because it was just too good to stop for pictures.


One of the great things about coming from a big blended family is a wonderful woman to have as an extra mom.  She has always been a wonderful friend to me and so I consider her a mom.  Step mom is not a title I feel suits her.

I’ll show you all more white milk glass in this week’s thrift share Thursday no 42 be sure to come back by and check it out.

So what are you working on this week?

    Wonderful Anj! You are so lucky to have two moms – I lost my mom a long time ago and it’s awful without her. Love the milk glass! What market did you go to? They are so much fun. Can’t wait to see what you do with your mom’s place.
