The end of it all...

My whirlwind of a summer is coming to an end... 
at least, the LA chapter.
Yesterday was my last day at HOBY and it was a perfect last day. We celebrated all of our hard work by going out to lunch and picking up some party items at the party store. One of the guys that worked in the store responded to our uncontrollable laughter by saying, "You girls are having way to much fun!" This party store wasn't your typical PARTY CITY (not sure if that is a nationwide store, but it's our Go To party store at home). It was a little sketchy. There was SO much Halloween stuff and then there were random things too... Like a turkey hat. I wanted to take a picture, but this guy will have to do!

It was tough to say goodbye to Solange. She has become more than my summer boss; she is my friend. After this post, she told me how much she loved Kate's flapperdoodle print (duh! who doesn't?!) and the tiffany blue frame. So of course, I ordered another print from Kate and made her a frame to match. She got so excited, "This is the one I loved!! And the tiffany blue frame! OMG I have goosebumps!" I'd say it was a hit :) She sent me this pic of it hanging in their home.

Today is my last day at 3Ball. I have a little surprise cooked up for the gang, so I'm excited to get there and thank them for such an amazing opportunity this summer!

Steph and the kiddos got back last night, and I was SO excited to see them!! As we drove away from the airport we started talking about what we were going to do today (since it's my last full day with them) and they all said they wanted to go to Disneyland! I'm not sure if that's going to be possible today, but I do know that I am going to miss them SO much. My sweet Caroline made my night last night... As we hopped out of the car to grab dinner she says, "Aunt Liz!! You got tan!" Ahh, that is the magic phrase to a fair skinned girl!

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Mine will be filled with a lot of fun and just as much packing! -E
