Have a beautiful weekend!

  1. Sounds like you have a fabulous weekend planned...HAVE FUN!
    I have no doubt that her makeover will be spectacular - I haven't seen a project yet that isn't out of this world great.

    We still need to get together - it's kindof crazy that we live so close and haven't done that yet!

    Enjoy your weekend ~

  17. An ambush makeover? Is she going to get purple-and-white streamers for her handlebars? (I used to have a bike like that, and it had streamers - back when I was a Little Bit :)

    Have a wonderful holiday this weekend...

  27. Andrea, when you finish ambushing the bike for her makeover, would you consider doing me? I'm at that stage of growing out my hair and thinking I hate it-I'm going to chop it all off Friday! I need a makeover! I hope she doesn't mind, I know you'll make her all pretty!
