Happy Friday! It was my first full week of my new job and oh my goodness! So much to learn and so different from my teaching job before. I'm not sure if I mentioned I will be teaching online from home, which is amazing. It took a few days to get a hang of working from home, but I really think I'm going to love it. But, even working from home I'm still exhausted.
Erica gave a wild, comical description of our trip to Vegas. I will say it was probably one of our craziest trips. She did leave out a very important event though! We saw Lady Gaga! Walking back to Caesars Palace one day there were a bunch of sirens and Las Vegas Blvd was shut down. We were on a sky bridge trying to figure things out and I looked down and there she was! I've included a photo.
Well, next week is my birthday so Erica and Maddie presented me with my prizes on Sunday when we were home from Vegas. I definitely did not have a clue what I was getting. I don't think Sister realized how excited I was because we were so exhausted from our trip, but I will say this is one of my favorite gifts she has ever given me.
Yes you are seeing correctly. That is the complete set of McKee sailboat bowls. They were still in the original box too! I've loved this pattern for so long but would never buy it for myself. I feel like one lucky thrifting Sisterita!
Maddie also picked out this very special gift. My baby cement deer from a while back now has a Mama! When I pulled in the driveway yesterday I saw her ears sticking up and I jumped because I thought there was a live animal in my yard!
No birthday is complete without a new swanky swig. Erica got this at Plucky Maidens, but already had the pattern.
Lastly, I picked up this Stellar Jay figurine at my GW last week. Its paint is a little chippy and its marked Japan. I think it will be happy with its other bird friends.
I'm going to go enjoy my last few days of my 26th year. I'm turning 27 on the 27th so apparently this is a golden birthday someone told me. Well, 27 is my unlucky number so I hope this is true. Apparently mars is supposed to be so close that day that it looks like there are 2 moons, so that is a good sign.
Have a thrifty weekend!
