#1 Flees the Nest - Take 2

We went to visit our #1 this weekend and took her out to lunch so she could advise her sis the easiest way to obtain a fake ID say goodbye to her little sis and wish her luck in college.  Her charming  house is coming together nicely and she is very proud of it. 

The kitchen is all white with an adorable black and white backsplash.  I bought her dessert and dinner plates at my favorite store, Homegoods to match. Everything but the price screamed MacKenzie Childs!

#1 was very proud of herself for snatching up this table and chairs on Craig's list for $100.00 of her own money! One small step towards Independence Day!!!  Book the cruise Mister!!!

What, no dirty dishes in the sink?  Dishwasher empty?  This can't be my kid's house! By the way, #2 and I made her valances in our sewing class.

Nothing like a little 2 Buck Chuck to "class up" my girl's nest.
And even a beautiful Semillon which was our holiday gift to friends and neighbors ten years ago was found fermenting next to the 2 Buck Chuck.
Our girl stashing all the goodies we brought her.  Her favorite meal?
Quakes & Cool Whip!
Bon Appetit Numero Uno!
The cute little living room with the nice big TV.
Looks like a Real Housewives marathon is on.  I know my girl is going to get a lot of studying done this weekend!
Cozy little corner for our #1 girl to get some studying done or a great place for her to contemplate her future.
The Mister "eagerly" awaiting his Honey-Do list. Now the Mister gets two lists every week!  

So we left our #1 girl with her tummy full, eagerly looking forward to buckle down and finish studying the rest of the Real Housewives marathon.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Your girls are gorgeous (including Gypsy)! Love #1's house- and that kitchen is perfect! I've heard empty nesting gets easier with time;)

  2. So, what is it that produces Nike Air Max stand out from each of
    one other sports activities trainers concerning Nike Air
    Max market. At the same time, in the same interview, Takaya Imamura stated
    that "the story ends here", which has thrown some fans
    for a loop. Pair them with satin gloves to get an extremely 80s glam look.
