All the Chocolate You Can Lick

On the way to dinner tonight, I passed our old house and slowed down to check out how it looks. The New Owners had two cars on the driveway, which probably means that they still have so many boxes in the garage that they can't park inside yet. Not surprising since we can only park one car inside ourselves so far.

The plants look healthy and so does the paint that we had done. I never noticed that we had a bay window in the living room. I can be spectacularly unobservant at times, but did we really live there for so many years without me remembering it? I look closer. Whew, I'm not a complete idiot - it's new. The New Owners changed out the window since they moved in. I'm glad they're taking good care of the house and improving it.

It was a delightful dinner with blogging moms (and dad), meeting some new folks and getting excited for the BlogHer conference. The "Lady M" logo has been finished, so I'm looking forward to getting my blog updated and ordering pretty business cards to share with other attendees.

My moms group sent this delicious fruit and chocolate bouquet in honor of Buster's birth. His older brother did his best to lick all the reachable chocolate. Ladies - thank you so much! It's been a fabulous three years, celebrating, commiserating, and learning so much with you.

Actually, Q-ster was very good, he was just sniffing. Finally after we pulled out a few that were too tall to fit in the fridge, he licked one (which he ate later).

yum. Those edible arrangements are SO good. I'm very partial to the white chocolate covered bananas!
It was lovely meeting you last night!

Our house looks NOTHING like it did before we bought it, inside or out. The previous owners would probably think they were in the wrong house. Or they'd be kicking themselves for not doing the renovations themselves.

Or maybe we should be kicking ourselves for not just moving after a few years instead of doing all this work. (It's still not done.)

See, that is why I looooove the show Moving Up -- where you get to see previous owners react to what new buyers did.

can't wait to see your new look!

ooh, that looks good...

It will be weird to see our old house in new hands, now that it has finally closed. Misterpie is a bit nostalgic about it all of a sudden.

and can't wait to see the new logo!

Maybe next time, shop flowers instead of edible arrangements? Very adorable.
