Yes! THIS!!!



Lord knows they NEED to see what a strong, intelligent, independent hard-working woman looks like...and I'll make damn sure that whomever they marry is just as competent and whole a person as well!

Can't wait to see my bonus boys this weekend. We had such a great time last time they were here. We really got close...A looked at me in the car on the way home and said, "Leah...I love you." Looking forward to cuddles and fun times in our BRAND NEW condo!!! So excited to have a HUGE and beautiful new home for our family!!! We moved on Saturday. It's been a GRUELING weekend, but we got it all moved over and completely unpacked in two days. Whew!

Living Room/Dining - you won't believe this. We live a block away from the Habitat for Humanity Restore & we got this couch for $18 and computer desk for $8!!!! We also carried the couch from the store down the block to our condo. Lol. It was hard. We have some big time muscles.


Stairwell up to the Kids Wing


Boys Room (with crystal in the window, natch)


The most organized it's ever gonna be.

Mr. T and I also LOVE our sex dungeon (er, bedroom). Haha. It's the ENTIRE basement...so it is HUGE. We are still working on decorating, etc. Hence, no photos yet.

Our friend brought us lunch Sunday and brought her precious 5-week old baby. Be still, my heart!!!


By the way...that sexy man has lost so much weight! He is at the same weight now that he was when we first met and fell in love...in high school! When we were 16 yrs old. He has gone from a Size 38 in pants to a Size 32. And the other day, he wore his 11 yr old son's Size 28 jeans. !!!!! Crazy!!!! He looks absolutely amazing and I am so proud of him!

I just need to catch up with him now!!! Got about 3 weeks til my final fitting and the day I HAVE to order the wedding dress. Otherwise it won't arrive in time. I can't believe the wedding is only 158 days away. Put another way, just 22.5 weeks. Eeeep!

    emoticon So happy for all of you!

My stepmother is my best friend! She was a firm and loving stepmother as I was growing up and now that I have sort of done so, our friendship just deepens as the years go by. She more than makes up for my mother who chose not to be in my life.

    Many Blessings to You Mr T & the kids. May your home be full of love, laughter, trust, kindness & compassion, forgiveness . When or if a conflict arises may you have the strong conflict resolution skills to deal with the situation, so no room for anger, jealousy or negative energy in your life or living space. No bad ju-ju, no bad karma just joy & learning to love with an open heart.

As for your lovely wedding, it is going to be fabulous; You are going to be a beautiful bride. You both have worked very hard to get to your wedding day, it will be magical. I wish you all the happiness you both can embrace. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Many Blessings Always Debby

    Wow! Love your new place! I know you will love living there - the lovely area behind the house is calling for your kids to come and play! I did an appraisal once of stuff that was being donated to Habitat - kitchen cabinets by Jack Busby (very famous, fabulous and waaaaayyyy out of my league!) lovely stone forming a stone floor. It made me realize that you don't get junk there! (I personally have my BFFs old sofa that didn't fit in her new condo, and I love it! Soft leather, and comfy... would have been our of my budget, as I think they paid several thousand $$ for it! YIKES!)

158 days... I can't wait to see the photos. I am as excited about your wedding as I am about any I actually attend! You have waited your whole life for this one!
