My Studio Is Compleletly Packed Up

Finally got everything in the studio packed away. Well except for my printers and printer supplies, but I keep feeling like I might need those. And I left one table up cause I am working on a project for a friend and need somewhere to put the sewing machine.
Unfortunately we STILL don't have a closing date so I'm in limbo just waiting. There is a lot of drama going on about this condo purchase but since I've been whining about it on Facebook for weeks now I won't do it here too.

Earlier when we were so excited about moving my mom found a great round table and chairs for our new eat in kitchen at a second hand store. It's stored in our garage now but I found a pic of how someone updated a similar table and can't wait to get my hands on it.
This is what I want to do to the table and chairs. I'm so excited about this!

Last week the boxes piled everywhere were getting to us so my daughter and I took up an invitation from my college friend to come out for the weekend. We got on a plane (which if you know me is no easy feat, I do not like flying or heights or falling to my death) and flew the short distance from Chicago to Detroit.
Leaving Chicago! My daughter took these pics cause I can't look out the window.
Here we are on a super small commuter plane. Even my daughter was like Whoa this is small!

Before we left my daughter said I was too gray and since I don't look old yet we had to dye my hair. I've been fighting her for about a year cause I don't care about the gray, I earned every one of them!
Here I am back to all brown. Oh and my daughter flat ironed my naturally curly hair. I had no idea it was this long!

 Here we are in a recording studio where we did interviews and had make up tutorials done on our faces. This is my after, don't my eyebrows look fabulous? Seneca got a smoky eye. This is part of a project that my college friend Jamie is doing and we were happy to come and help.
Seneca getting her eyes done. We had to keep quiet in the dark background since they were filming.
Me getting my eyebrows done. So nervous cause you had to constantly look at the camera as if it was a person. Sounds easy but it's not.
Here is where the photographer was shooting photos of us. We had different outfits to wear and we also did some shots outside. Can't wait to see them! The interviews were done in a closed recording studio so we could see the people being interviewed but not hear them.

The weekend was over too quick but we had a great time and now we are back and dealing with boxes.

Looks like you had a great time on your much deserved break. Hope you get to move soon. Being in limbo is well, limbo . . . The bad news is it takes a whole lot longer to unpack. So while I am excited for you all, Having just gone through a move myself, be for warned, the road back to organization is a little longer than you think it will be.

Oh! how fun!
I would LOVE to have someone do my eyebrows...actually a reverse-do since mine are so thin and sparse.
I can only imagine how hard it must be to live around all those boxes. I'm so glad you were able to get away for a little bit!
