Getting the B&B Ready

Happy Wednesday.  I am really excited and getting ready for my friend Susan from Must Love Junk and her hubby Keith to come into Chicago October 2nd.

They came in last year and stayed downtown  Chicago and took the train out to meet up.  This year they will stay with me for a few days and that way we can fit in more junkin stops!!  They will get junkin in the burbs with us and then will still have a few days for the Chicago City Life.

I have been changing things up in the guest room and getting it all comfy for them to stay.

Grace is awaiting their arrival to watch over them while they stay.

Got all the bedding ready for them to be comfy.  Hope it is not too cold to have to use the extra duvet but it is there just in case.

I want them to have sweet dreams as they stay.

Let the Junkin Begin...................

Thursday we will begin with:
 Tattered Tiques!!!

Lucky Junk !!!!!!

Then on Friday
Downtown Morris...........

Ruby Begonia's
Letty Mae's for the best eats!


Also on Thursday:
Room 363
Denise's Adornments

 Susan and Keith the Guest Cottage is already for your arrival on October 2nd.  Pack your running shoes I have lots of junkin planned!

Morris Shops, Tattered Tiques, Lucky Junk, Denise's Adornments and Room 363.

Have a great rest of the week.  Check back on Saturday Susan and I will have a couple of sweet bloggers in Spotlight for you to get to know.

  5. Kris, I know we are not to be envious...but oh I am. LOL. You are going to have the best time. Get pictures. Your guest room is better that a 5 star hotel. Well for one thing, do you ever have angels watching over you in a hotel? Love that sweet angel. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  6. That sounds like so much fun!! They are going to love staying with you. Being with friends is so much better than being in a hotel. Y'all have a great time. :)

Take lots of photos and share previous Susan with us we all adore her almost as much as we adore you! Lol just kidding here but to have such beautiful company is fun enough, all the girl chatter about shabby cottage Chicness and junkin about as well as being able to enjoy the sites sounds divine !! So wish I was the plus 3 and you were preparing another guest room for moi ! Well my girlies have fun, and I will be visiting Susan asking her about your dreamy room, and all the dun she had with you :)
