Now, I prepare to leave what I come to think of as my other home - St. Louis. I'll being moving to Oklahoma in January for an amazing job - a researcher at Oklahoma State University. Go Pokes!
But couldn't leave St Louis without one last dance.
I'll be having a Progressive Departing Party, dropping in a few area Holiday Festivities hoping to see as many folks as I can before I depart to the west.
Fri Dec 9: Alive Magazine Holiday Bash at Mandarin in the Central West End, link to details
Tue Dec 13: FUEL Holiday Wine & Food Party in Soulard Market, link to details
Attendees should bring a food tray, dessert or wine beverage to share.
Thu Dec 15: ULYP Annual Holiday Party & Toy Drive in South City, link to details
Attendee should bring a gift for a child or gift card.
Fri Dec 16: Jack Daniel’s Presents Arts, Beats & Lyrics near Grand Arts District, link to details
(RSVP is required)
Many people have asked if I need anything before departing (on January 3rd). And the answer is yes. Yes, I do. After graduation I downsized my life big time and I'll be starting over fresh in Oklahoma.
Some household items I could certainly use include
Iron and Ironing Board
Kitchen supplies - drinking glasses, storage ware, dish drying rack -- stuff like that.
Bathroom supplies - mainly cleaning items like a plunger, scrubber brush, sponges
Living Room - couch, ottoman. And if anyone knows where I can score a television (32-40" flat screen) for the low low, hit me up and an XBox or some other game component so I can download Netflix and the internet. Cable company won't grift me. LOL
Bedroom & Linens - I have sheets and comforters, but my wish list does include a nice duvet for my full/queen size bed.
And just for reference, I have a Housewarming Wish List
Thank you so much for the love, fun, and laughter while I was in St Louis.
I hope I see you out and about!
