A BHG Barnacle I am!

My friends Layla and Kate were featured in Better Homes and Gardens.

So of course I needed a copy!

Standing in the middle of Wal Mart I hurridly flipped to find them.

Never....did I imagine to find this!

I painted this sign for Layla and Kevin for above their reading room!

I tried not to squeal like a girl ....but I think I may have.

I called my Mom and shared my news.

I guess I'm kinda like a barnacle. Ha!

Thanks Kevin and Layla for allowing me to ride along side of you.

Here is a shot of her reading room.

Ok..now I have to go wash dishes.

Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist.
