We Made It: The Macon Store Opens

Friday was a late night for us.  Shane started looking a little happy/crazy around midnight.

Meanwhile, the Papyrus spinner was looking a little sad...

Books were still waiting to be shelved and boxes moved and giraffes were looking longingly out the window.

Mom was wondering why  she had vacuum duty and her daughter was taking pictures...

But some books were ready--they had their act in order and were waiting patiently on the shelves for the next morning to arrive...

In the wee hours of the morning (actually around 9:00) Shane put the store hours on the door...

Forget something?

Finally 9:30 rolled around and we were ready for business!

And then THE BEST THING happened--PEOPLE CAME!!!

Including one of my very best friends from college.  She works in Atlanta now and I hardly ever see her.  It was magic!  Actually, it was conference a few blocks down the road.  But still magical!

I also got to see these two girls--two of my favorites ever!

Shane and I got home to a feast my parents had fixed for us (did I mention they're AMAZING?!?!?!)

Complete with these guys:
Why, it's a red pepper stuffed with avocado and cauliflower...what did you think it was?
