Proud mama . . .

As you may (or may not) know, my daughter Laura is in grad school at the University of North Texas, studying Art History. I went up there the other day to give her her jury summons. She'll be exempt, but I do think this was her first summons.

I met her roommates, Laura and Katherine. My Laura's name is Laura Katherine. Interesting, huh? They are very nice young ladies. I am very pleased.
While I was parked in front of her apartments, waiting for her and Ryan to get back from their jog, a man in a big pick-up truck drove by slowly, looking the place over. Oh dear, I thought. Then he said (I had my window open), "Are you a mother?"
"Yes," I said.
He said, "Well, I'm the owner of these apartments. Who is your child?"
I told him.
He said, "Oh, she is a wonderful person. She and her roommates are just great tenants, plus, they get their rent in before anyone else."
Needless to say, I was beaming.

Here she is in her apartment (you can click any picture to enlarge). . .
I thought the chairs were cute, all different and everything (they belong to Laura's roommate, Laura, as does most of the furniture) . . .
This is a corner of Laura's bedroom . . .
This is on the wall in Laura's bathroom . . .
This piece is on the wall going up the stairs . . .
Here's her kitchen . . .
This tall candle holder is so pretty. Laura said she got it in an antique mall on the square in Denton. That sounds like a place I have to check out . . .

It's so nice to have Laura close by.
I can pop in anytime . . . a mother's dream, don't cha know!

I love the apartment... I want to curl up in that fluffy chair and have a nap!

And yes, you should be proud of your Laura-Laura.

What a cute apartment. I like those chairs too -- so eclectic and fun. Just like having weeds for grass, don't you sometimes wish we could put odd pieces of furniture together like that? We lack guts, Nancy. LOL!!! Of course, after 15 years of having hand me down furniture I was thrilled to have a whole room of furniture that actually goes together. Guess I'll settle for the weeds and be happy with my decor.

Close is nice. After Meredith living way down in Corpus, Euless is VERY nice indeed.
