Set-ups, Day 5: Comfort and Joy

  • Savor sleeping in until 7 a.m.!
  • Head for only scheduled setup for the day, lamenting that we're only a team of two
  • Call store to see if anyone is available to help; access denied, as store is WAY busy
  • Unpack box after box of favorite things from Susan's store, purchased by client in years past
  • Exclaim over beauty of tree!
  • Break for lunch--a lovely catered affair on holiday china hosted by our gracious client, Lani
  • Swoon over arugula salad with Craisins, walnuts, and blue cheese; salivate over dessert tray sporting a tempting array of lemon bars, pecan tassies, chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, brownies, and cannolis
  • Hope that climbing ladders multiple times daily counts as workout
  • Love Lani for allowing us to take creative license in our work
  • Comment on how inviting her house looks from the street
  • Finish later than we thought; crack open a Coke Zero to prepare for evening of Christmas shopping
  • Drag ourselves home around 11:15 p.m., shopping bounty in tow

Seriously you guys went shopping AFTER a long day of setting up Lani's beautiful house?! You both are made of some stylishly tough stuff for sure!

Susan you and Denise are incredible. Lani's house looks lovely.

Oh how I love that flocked tree! I love that she fed you in style - no doubt you needed the energy.

I would have wanted to go home and relax, even though I love shopping...

Inviting photo of the front door! I'm sure that her home is absolutely stunning.

And yes...Up and down the ladder is considered a workout. They provide machines like those in the gyms. :)

I wish I could spend time making things lovely for Christmas instead of getting ready for lame-o finals.
