My Nemesis: Shopping!
I've gotten the shopping bug lately.. But mostly for tanks, matching capri's & hoodies.. I downsized my Cali wardrobe to not much for our move back home... And I knew once we got settled i'd do some Fla wardrobe shopping.. So I decided on yellowy lime capri's, coral capri's, sea green capri's and tanks in matching colours.. Two dressy style light hoodies in coral & blue.. I like to think of my new wardrobe as Fla Stylin for garanimals!

I was lucky to get most of my goodies at: TJ Maxx, Old Navy & can u believe Wal Mart? They carry the Danskin line & I've always liked their sporty spice cuteness!
I also took a jaunt down to Vero Beach to The Gap Outlet.. I received a $15 off $75 purchase coupon! I was blessed to find a gre8t pair of wide leg dark denim trousers 60% off reg $44 snagged them for $17.99 each! So I bought two pairs, and also two short sleeve light cotton wrap sweaters in beige & black.. These are my staples for work! I have black sequin converse & nice black leather dress sandals w kewl leather flowers on them.. And some cute dressy black/silver sequin tanks from Cali nice to wear under the wrap sweater w dressy vibe.. If you can't tell I'm all about the coordinating pieces!!

For me having a wardrobe I really dig is super important! To like really luv what u own is what bein a minimalist iz bout for me!
And of course sharing a tiny closet w hubby keeps my wardrobe very manageable!

Blogging Resumes...

I have went thru so many freakin changes I couldn't even think bout blogging! And so much has happened that the transformation is taking root in my soul!

Whatz been up!

Hubby got laid off 2/11. We decided to come back to Fla 2/16. Rent Apt in Satellite Beach & started packing. We decided on 5x8 trailer to be pulled by my Scion XB...
We gave away lots to a few good organizations.. My minimalist lifestyle had paid off!

On the 25th T filled the trailer strategically!
We left on 26th...

So off T & I & our two furbabies...

First stop my Dad & his wife in Phoenix. Edda cooked us a great meal & we all enjoyed Phoenix hospitality!

Our second evening was Las Cruces... We drove thru snow & cold! Doggies got there first taste of snow & didn't seem to care for it!

Then onto Texas... What a rather long drive.... We stopped in Junction, Texas then Beaumont, LA....

Finally on 5th day we entered FLA!!!

A cute story when Tony & his twin Terry entered Fla w their parents (they were 5 years old) as they crossed state line & it said welcome to Florida their dad said your in Fla you won't need your sweaters anymore & they proceeded to take them off & throw them out the window!

So in honor of that I threw one of the doggies sweater out of the window!!

We stayed at Pensacola and celebrated with a southern style buffett!
Then 9 hours of long grueling drive...
We finallllllly saw the Brevard County sign & I yelped with joy!!
Finally on March 3rd @ 4:55 pm we entered our apartment complex & were home!!!!

We unloaded the cars & trailer, put everything away & finally fell over with exhaustion!

For last two weeks we've been walking on beach with doggies, getting a tan, fine tuning our apartment.. And reading, chilling & slowing down into Fla vibe!!
Here's our view out our Apt!






And we walk across the street to the beach. We are beyond blessed!
My cre8tiv energy is back & my gleefulness to finally be "home". After two years of hoping & praying and hard work were where we belong!
