An Update (Finally!) - And A Huge Favor for Nanny's 85th Birthday!

Hello Shopaholics! Did you think I had deserted you? Moved to the Far East or something? Nope....things have been way crazy around these parts. The past few weeks have been a blur.

For starters, I've been busy trying to build Shopaholic's Preppy Closet on Facebook. Thank goodness my sister has been helping me or I'd be drowning! If you haven't yet, get yourself over to Facebook and "like" the page for me! (link HERE).  My plan is for this to be the premier consignment site on Facebook. We are specializing in preppy and designer clothing, shoes and accessories. Think Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, Trina Turk, there are even a few Burberry listings right now! Who knows where this will lead - it might even turn into a "real job" for me in the future. I'm getting a little bored not working anyway...

Additionally, DH ended up with some unexpected time off (thanks, BP). We took a short trip and spent some time boating, fishing, hanging in the sun and generally being lazy. It was marvelous!

So this is what I've been doing lately...what about you? :-)

Now for the favor........next week my dear Nanny will celebrate her 85th birthday. We're having a huge party for her this Sunday (in 5 days). Family is coming from out of town, and it's going to be a pretty big deal. I'm hosting a "card shower" for Nanny, and would LOVE to see her receive 85 cards to celebrate her 85th birthday. Would you mind dropping her a card in the mail? It would mean soooo much to her, she loves to get mail, or at least mail that's "not a bill" - her words! :-)

If you'd like to participate, please mail the card to:

Doris Huffman
2920 Graham Rd. S.
Mobile, AL 36618

You can tell her I sent you - or just sign the card. Either way is fine! And the photo here was taken during Mother's Day weekend, this is Nanny!

A special thanks to my friend Bethany at Maryland Pink and Green for giving me the great idea and letting me copy her. LOL

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday, and thanks for not leaving me during my sabbatical! Sometimes I feel like no one is really reading anyway...is everyone still here? :-)


  1. Happy to mail a card to your Nanny. How nice for both of you to have each other!

  2. That's such a cute idea...I'll mail one when I get home on Friday (unless that's too late?)

  3. I did comment on your last post...wondering where you were! Glad you had some nice vacation/beach/sun time. Did Bethany say how many cards her Nanny recieved? I thought it was such a sweet idea. Will send one off to yours asap.

  4. I wrote your Nanny a birthday card and it will go out in the morning! :)

  5. That consignment shop is the best idea ever! You KNOW I'll be shopping!

  6. I really hope your biz idea takes off as it is wonderful!
