Bachelorette Pad Tour: Part Duex

I thought I'd start off this long-ass post with the latest news on the house and move: There have been some setbacks.  Everything is all good, it happens with every renovation.  But I was supposed to move last Saturday and it has been postponed until Friday, the 15th.  My landlord was kind enough to let me leave half way through the month as extra "just in case" time.  Turns out we needed a little extra "just in case" time for the reno's.  Here's whats going to happen:  On Friday we get the Uhaul and move all the junk out of my apartment and into the basement/garage of the new homestead.  Since the floors will be in the middle of being re-done, we will have to leave it all down there without moving it directly into the space.  From Friday until the floors are dry and ready to be walked upon, I will be staying at Matt's condo with him and his brother. Once everything is all cured and ready for our tippie toes, we will move all my and Matt's belongings into our place and we will officially be "merged."  Y-I-K-E-S!  I am so excited to be in the house and out of box jungle!

Anyhooz... back to the imperative topic at hand.  And that should have been at hand a couple weeks ago when I finally gave you the first true House Tour.  Alas, things around here have been such a mess due to the move, I haven't had much energy to clean up my bedroom. But I did it.  And I did it just for you guys.  So if I may implore you, lets begin Part Duex...

If only I had $3,695 not including shipping for these Christian Louboutin's "Very Riche."

But wait! they are OUT OF STOCK

Excuse me... let me wrap my tiny mind around this.... Are there honestly that many people on the PLANET that have enough money to pay that kind of money for a pair of crystal shoes!?

 Don't get me wrong.  If I was irresponsible with money and they weren't out of stock, I would go into debt over them... only to wear them around the house cleaning.  {I've never done that with a pair of shoes I love but have nowhere to wear them.  I swear!  ....Okay, okay I have.}  But sadly happily, I am far too responsible to do that. *sigh*

I guess just go enjoy the eye candy. Even if none of us can afford it. *more sighing*

Starting Over

Hiya Nesters!  I hope you all had a wonderful {and safe} holiday.  I spent the good portion of the long weekend keeping up the packing momentum.  It got really bare really fast when I took down the gallery wall.  But the good news is that we've already accumulated some new goodies in the meantime!

Happy 4th of July!

Last years 4th of July long weekend was much different than this years will be.  We spent 2 days on the beach sunning ourselves, then a BBQ with friends followed by a stunning fireworks display.  This year, will be furniture shopping and painting.  With the move in countdown to 9 days, we are busy bee's.  Hopefully we can take some time for a beer and some fireworks.  For those of you who are greater Boston area locals, we go to the Newton fireworks display.  They are seriously impressive for a suburb!  But the Big Kahuna of displays is, of course, Boston.  So without further adieu, lets check out the mastery of the pyrotechnicians behind the rib-cage rattling, tummy-rumbling, awe-inspiring show.
