Just wanted to give a quick update as to what's been going on in our neck of the woods. Even though Omi is well away from school age, the school year starts for many in just a few short weeks, so we have been busy getting together with friends and loved ones who have jobs and children going back to school (and I've been thinking more and more about homeschooling, but that's a whole other story to write!). We had a play date in the park yesterday, and this weekend, we are invited to an end of summer party - that is after we help out at the Surfers for Autism event on Tybee. Hope Andrew and Naomi are ready for this because I know I am! I've been looking forward to it since I heard they were coming to town, but we have to be there at 8am - busy weekend planned!

|good for the soul - playing at "Mamie's playhouse" kept my mama in good spirits thru it all!|
May not sound like much, but I am thrilled to have more space in our playroom, so that Santa can bring our girl a play kitchen for Christmas! She helps me cook all the time banging away at the pots and pans and "tasting" what she stirs, so I am tickled pink thinking about the excitement surrounding this Christmas coming up!
With Christmas seriously around the corner - for real, the school year is already about to start?! - I am creatively thinking of ways to up our Christmas fund. I'm about to start whipping up some new headbands for the girlies, so keep an eye and ear out for anyone who may need to purchase some handmade bands for great prices. I also have a few old collector dolls from my childhood that I am going to be selling along with a few other nicknacks around the house. eBay isn't going to know what hit them once I'm through with 'em! :)
Our goal to have all of the home-improvement works accomplished is the first of October. We've got friends and family coming in town for the highly anticipated Widespread Panic concerts the first week of, and I'm in a good friend's wedding before that - on the 2nd of the month. We'd like to have the needed housework done before family comes in town and before the holidays kick off (and I'd like to have all my Christmas shopping done by then too). Shwooo. Too much too soon? Never! :)
In between here and there, we are taking a trip to the mountains to see the grandparents, a trip to Athens and to the lake to see some favorite bands (Drive-By Truckers and Stockholm Syndrome) in all their glory at the glorious new Georgia Theatre (which has been closed for the past two years due to a fire that completely pitted the place). We saw lots of concerts there in years past, and we are pleased to be a part of the concert series that helps to reopen its doors. Not even a week after Athens though, I am headed to St. Augustine for Sheppie's bachelorette weekend. This will be the first time Deddy and Naomi will spend the night together just the two of them - I think I can, I think I can....
(these pics are kinda random to the post, but they are recent! I'll have pics up of home-improvement deals once they are done!)
