We have the closing date, Mom retires, and some fab wins!!

  Well, we did it. We finally have a closing date on our new house. It has been a long and winding road, but it is time for change. Big Change! Monday is the day, and boy am I excited. I cannot wait to move! I will share photos of the new place after the closing, and hope you like it as much as I do!!

  It has really been a week for partying. Tonight my mom celebrated her retirement from teaching. She has been a teacher since 1971, right out of college, and boy does she deserve the time off to have fun! I hope she travels, shops and lives the pleasurable life for all of us. And more time to spend with her granddaughters!!Anastasia will be her 3rd granddaughter in a year and a few it will be so nice to have the three little girls visit, and grow together!

  I promised you that I would tell you about my latest wins, and boy do I have some great ones. I tried and tried to win something fab for Mother's Day, and I won my Mom a really lovely Vera Bradley Bag.

I won the bag from the fabulous site, "The Find", a cool and fashionable blog that I read. The black bag is so versatile, and classic, and the fabulous VB and Find women even threw in a cool black and white purse and matching wallet for moi!! Isn't it pretty?? It is the Alice Night and Day.Thanks the Find, and the Vera Bradley company!!

 Speaking of Facebook, I won another fab Conair giveaway, the matching curling iron to the straightener that I won from Conair. But this time, I won it from the very cool and trendy Beauty Riot site! They have fun quizzes, contests and great hair and makeup ideas based on celebrity style! They gave away the Conair Infiniti You Curl Ceramic curler! It is red, and matches my new straightener, yay!! Thanks, Beauty Riot and Conair!

  Two days ago, I received a bottle of Weleda Pregnancy Oil from the fab blog Designs by Vanessa!! (now the Crafty Nest ). I started using the oil today, and will let you know how it works. It smells divine, and rubbed on really smooth! I love the glass bottle, and if it really avoids stretch marks, then it will be fantastic!! Thanks Vanessa , and Weleda, so far so good. Check out Vanessa's blog for fab contests, and she is expecting too!! Yay for babies!!

 There are a couple more....but I will tell you more about them when I receive them!! Yay! Have a fabulous Friday, and a great weekend. I know I will!!

I'm very glad to hear all your good news. (I've been away on vacation and just caught up with your blog.)

I'm sure your mother is very happy to have the free time now in retirement.
