Do I see in Black and White or in Color??
I arrived in Orlando last week to help my daughter move into her First HOME....a Home she bought!!!I was so happy and proud of her....but moving is alot of work!!!!For a few days I was literally just seeing things in measures of work, packing up the old place, cleaning it, moving into the new place, cleaning it.......
But soon it became a LABOR of LOVE......for I knew how happy she was that she was able to do this on her own!!So I was cleaning and singing away!!!I do after all really enjoy cleaning.
The garage that started out stuffed with stuff was slowly but surely getting smaller......the first few days it was Hot and very humid, but after a few days it began to dry out and feel much better. As I get older, I actually think I enjoy the temps a little lower with higher humidity then what I am usually use to which is temps in the high 100's and relatively no humidity. Dryer is good but temps hovering around 110 for 3 months gets old real fast!!
I ironed all the new bedding...and those colors just made me smile!!!Her bed room looks amazing....we never did get to the wall decor in the bedroom.....more pics will be coming in a month when we all return to Orlando.
I love her bathroom....this pic was snapped before everything was done.....but at least you get the idea.....I love the Cinderella coach and pumpkin candle holder....it was brown and I re-cycled it and just spray painted it cream!!
The signs says it all.....one shoe can change your life!!She went there 6 years ago and put on some Manager shoes with Walt Disney World and she never took those shoes off. She works hard and Loves her job!!
Love the little glass slipper!!!
This is the guest room and the bath matches this room.....she does have a room mate, a German girl she met while she worked at Epcot in the German Pavilion. Anja is a Great friend who is studying international journalism in Florida. And I am so happy that my daughter has such a wonderful and kind room-mate. We have gone to Germany and met her and her family and they are so wonderful.
The closed in Patio.....I had to plant flowers...no house is a home til you have flowers growing on your patio!!
I love her living room and dining room....she was able to purchase the new leather sectional too!!
Love this kitchen!!
3 baths in all....this small powder room downstairs!!
And here she IS!!!Our daughter Stacie!!!Standing by this beautiful tree in her front yard...I think it is a Magnolia tree.....I am Hoping!!
We took some time out of packing, cleaning and shopping for breakfast in Celebration twice!!!I love this neighborhood and love the moss on the trees!!
Stopped to take in all in.......seeing things in COLOR...is what makes LIFE so beautiful.
So Proud of our daughter!!!!and we are kind of sad.....this means she is staying in Florida forever.....but I am working on getting hubby to move there....daughter and Son in Law are all for it.....so maybe an early retirement....or at least a simpler working plan......
And we got to go to downtown Disney for a bit of shopping and to Magic Kingdom for 4 hours!!!!I love this Place!!!
Stay tuned for the NEW Fantasyland!!!!
Here we are on the NEW double Dumbo ride, so popular they have two!!!!And the circus waiting area...no lines....they hand you a beeper so you do not stand in line, your kids can go play and explore!!!
We also rode the new barnstormer roller coaster and a few other rides.....went and had some Taco Salad at Pecos Bills...and then watched the Electrical Parade.
Nothing makes me smile bigger then seeing the Beautiful Castle all lit up at night!!I have not seen the Electrical parade in a few years, so that was fun too!!!Loved all that Color!!!
