Making Plans for the Event of the Year!

I am sooooo excited about this! We are having a very special guest that is coming to the White Farmhouse! I've been putting off telling you about it to not jinx it.

NO! I am NOT pregnant, just fat!

This special guest is the only reason that I survived my teen years. She was always there for me. We grew up together and lost contact. Our 30th high school reunion is coming up and we reconnected. I have found out that I still just love her cause she is perfect and she loves me besides all my faults. She is the yin to my yang. She is shy, quiet and polite. I am loud, obnoxious and rude. The last time that I saw her was when she got married.... 20 years ago!

Now she is coming to the farmhouse!

I have one week to thoroughly clean the house, find some old pics of us to make her a little scrapbook, come up with a fantabulous menu and teach my kids manners.

Plus, get on the Fantabulous Basement/Storage Challenge! You still have a chance to win the giveaway here . Come on, show us your mess! I am so proud of myself so far! I wanted to do a box a day and I am 3 boxes ahead of schedule! So far, nothing has ventured back into the basement either. I know eventually some stuff will, but it WILL be organized!

I also have a project that goes along with my Inspiration Post! I am so excited about this too! In my mind's eye it looks gorgeous, so we will see what the end result will be..... The person that is my inspiration this month did a fantabulous tutorial which I am following to the letter! Wait til you see her end result!

The garden is also taking off! I am about ready to be overwhelmed with veggies! I see lots of recipes and canning in my future posts! This weekend I have to put more stakes in plants since they are falling over and taking the stakes already there with them! I have one poor tomato plant that got really energized and has about 20 tomatoes on it and is about to collapse on itself!

So much to do and so little caffeine!

I didn't know I was coming to visit...*snicker*
Have fun and can't wait to see your projects...nothing like company to put the rear in gear. And Little Debbie Oatmeal Cakes.

You go girly! I had a visit this past week from a dear old school girlfriend too. We had a wonderful time on 'total recall'. It was fun.
Enjoy your reunion, your projects and surprises that lurk out of the basement.

Maggie, You can do it all! I'm so thrilled that your basement is ahead of schedule. And that you are having a special guest to the White Farmhouse! Enjoy your time together.

As for me, I got a little sidetracked with a dental and allergic reaction problem. But started to feel bettter yesterday.
So I have some catch up to do!

Today is a good day for basement diving!
My goal: find a home for 1,000 video tapes- but not a home here. We have so many kiddie tapes. I would love to send them to a home for kids or overseas to a place that needs them.
Sending lots of love and sweet thoughts your way!
xo Yvonne
