I have been all over the Southland (Southern California). I knew that my quiet days were going to be short lived!
We decided to clear out my storage unit and get it all moved into the new office space, Headquarters as Houston has named it, or HQ for short. I love it! Little did I know how much work it would be to move a 200 square foot storage unit with a tiny U-Haul and my two kids.
Here is what it looked like when we started. (Dad, do you remember moving all of this into the storage unit? Boy are you lucky you missed this job!)
Indy, Houston and I moved about 17,000 books, furniture and eBay items (that still need to be listed) in 5 1/2 hours. It took two full U-Haul loads. We were sooooo exhausted afterwards and I could barely move. I am hiring movers for the next phase of this adventure!
We are all expert packers–it is hereditary. No one could pack my grandma’s van for antique shows like my brother, sister and I could. We learned from the best (Cheryl Leaf).
What a joy it was to see that storage unit completely emptied out on October 29th. I saved myself $184.00 in monthly rent by being out before November 1st. Yipppeeee!
The next day WAS the Saturday before Halloween and I drove off to the USC campus for my college reunion. It was a blast (although I could barely walk after that storage unit move). Here I am with three of my girlfriends that I did the Spain semester with.
The next day it was off to Riverside to watch Houston play some baseball. Then I had to whisk the kids back to the desert in time for trick or treating. This may be one of the last years that they dress up. But they were so cute!
Here is Houston as Reggae Bush (instead of Reggie Bush)…I thought it was pretty cute. And Indy as Alice in Wonderland…I thought she was very cute!
I have been finding a lot of really great items lately, at garage sales, estates sales and in thrift stores. I thought it would be the perfect time to write a feature article about some of my sourcing secrets. Don’t miss this one. I even include some of my mistakes .
By the way, the footage from Live Boot Camp 2010 is finished! Jason says that it is the best EVER. The kids have been watching it and it is fantastic. So, for all of you who have pre-ordered, please be watching for them to come by priority mail. All of them have been shipped out.
The footage for my reality show “Trash to Cash” is in the can. We have ten hours to turn into a 30-minute pilot. It has been a blast. Crazy things we have been filming have been selling for A LOT of money. Seems like things are just flying off of our shelves. Auctions seem to have really picked up.
Check out this item that just sold. It was a beautiful bowl and pitcher set.¬†This one sold for a pretty penny!
I was on the Griff show this past Tuesday 11/9 with both Griff and Lee. Please read the Lynn Recommends section to learn more and hear why I was late getting on the line.
