LITTOF November highlights

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Pablo lounging on the $50 sofa in his bumble bee sweater. What? It’s cold here!

I just realized we’re half way through November! Unbelievable! And Bob’s birthday is only fifteen days away.

We’ve been very busy on the island the first half of November and I’ve been doing my best to document each step along the way over at ChicagoNow. In case you missed anything, here are links to some of the posts from November…. (just click on the title to check them out.)

– They say it takes 21 days to adjust to a major life change. How are we doing on day 21 on the island?

– Real Estate Mom takes us inside, well, the strangest house she’s ever seen. Hidden staircase, anyone? Underground bunker?

– Read all about the Great Island Giveaway Event!

– Meet Bob’s new best friend. The couch. The ugly floral couch he refers to as “Eight and a half feet of glory.”

– Read about our 4th day on the island and our move into the main house.

Happy mid-November, everyone! And thanks for reading!
