Treasures Thursday!

It's been a while since I've posted one of these. The plan was to have Makeover Mondays to show you how I transformed all my Treasures. The problem IS I started working full time and have had even less time to dedicate to the makeovers than before. I hope to find a balance very soon!! 

Anyhow,  the makeovers aren't the only thing I've fallen behind in....

The blog has suffered as well.


I've had posts that I've been excited to share with you but couldn't find the time to write them. 

I've received awards....



 that I happily accepted but then never passed them on (horrible, I know)

So even though it's late Thursday evening I decided, it's TIME!!

Now, this is a Treasure of a different kind.

This Treasure is friendship.

You see quite a few weekends ago.....



Nikki from....


Was having her first sale EVER!!!

I was so excited to see her stuff. She is TALENTED! Take a look for yourself....





This photo had all 3 of my favorites! The table, the zebra chair and the crates!!

The table and chair were already sold, so one of the crates came home with me...



Anyhow, Nikki and I have swapped stories and along the way became blog friends.

When I realized she was only about 30 minutes away from me I decided....

I'm going to her sale!
(note to self: stand up straight during photos)

It's silly really, but I felt like I was going on a first date!

                                          I was so excited to meet her!

We all know how we feel about our blogging buddies.

How even though they are virtual, they add so much to our lives and truly become friends.

So much so that we wish they lived in our town, so we could meet for coffee and a Treasure hunt or two.

Well I got lucky enough to have that wish come true!!

So even though I'm busier than ever before..
(the same goes for Nikki too! Her stuff is selling like crazy!)
I plan on taking advantage of this Treasure and hangin' with Nikki again!!

Only 30 min! That is amazing to have someone so close that you met through a blog...NEATO!

I must say my fav is the dresser. I am on a massive dresser hunt now for Kyle's room.

How is work going?

Even though we may never meet in person with most of our blogger friends, their friendships are definitely a treasure. Awesome that the two of you could meet...and only 30 minutes away.

Ummm, I KNOW I left a comment her already...where did it go? lol. Maybe I am going NUTS!! I love that you got to meet Nikki. Too fun!!!!

So happy you received your goodies. Have fun!!!!

Leah said...

Oh that chair is TDF! Love it!

Kim said...

How fun! I have yet to meet a fellow blogger IRL. I know I'd be all kinds of nervous beforehand also.

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

It's really awesome to meet blogging buddies. When I met Deb last month I was so nervous, what if we didn't like each other in person? But omg, it was like we had known each other our entire lives right from the start. Truly a special treasure.
Hope your work/home/blog schedule is starting to balance. I feel for you, as I work 60 hour weeks and have lots of trouble keeping up with my blogging. And I don't even have children at home to juggle, like you do.
Hang in there....

I love this post so much Angie. It's so crazy but just today I got to meet and spend the afternoon with Megan from 1 Funky Woman and her sister who she is visiting in San Mateo, so I know exactly what you mean. We had so much fun today hanging out. You gotta love the internet and blogging. It's amazing the wonderful friends it brings us :)
You and I are next OK.
We live in the same state for goodness sakes!!!
Love,
Terri
You look adorable in that photo by the way :)

Kerri said...

I have to drive almost 30 mins just to get to a Walmart! How cool that you were able to "hook up" with a blogging buddy who lives so close! Love that story!

Jen said...

You are so lucky to have met a blogging buddy in real life! What a great sale she had...cute crate!

Thanks for your sweet comment!
Glad to have you join in the running plan! I'd love to have the encouragement and accountability.

I am so glad you 2 had a chance to meet! how fun and exciting. It reminds me that I need to get out more and smell the roses so to speak! If only we had that bullet train they have been talking of for years now...then I might be only 30 minutes away too! hahaha
