Holy mackerel, folks. It is a sunny 50 degrees in southwest Michigan today. In January! I even have the windows cracked in the bedroom where I'm painting. If I wasn't pregnant, I'd be rockin' an ice cold beer right about now for sure. It's practically the tropics 'round these parts.
Painting? Did I say "painting"? What I should have said is "priming". Because "painting gives you the impression that soon I'll have an "after" picture to show you. And when you say things like that it makes me go hahahahahahahahaha! Because have you ever had a 4 year old and a 22 month old help you do renovations? It would honestly be faster if I was standing on one leg with an eye patch over my good eye and was forced to speak in only iambic pentameter whilst I worked.
So we're priming. But priming is good! Priming means I got those heinous mirrors off the wall and patched all the holes in the walls and cleaned every square inch of that hovel. I mean budoir. Bam!
Speaking of Bam, we got to have Christmas all over again yesterday. Thanks to the clever and generous Grandma T., happy kids and grown ups were all OVER this house!
Yes, she sent all this stuff. It. Was. Great!
Everyone was so excited. Thank you, Grandma T.!
Completely unrelated, does anyone have a yummy/easy recipe for Tom Kha Gai? Or any other similar thai soup? The chances of us going to a thai restaurant in the near future are some number less than zero, and mama is CRAVIN' her some soup. Show me the soup!
Oooooh, I also made a Pinterest board of bedroom redo ideas. I still haven't chosen bedding (not sure we'll have enough $ left over when we get to that point, but just in case....) so go there and tell me which patterns and colors you like so far. Remember, we've decided to go with pale yellow walls and bright white trim. The floors and furniture will still be brown wood. Muchas gracias.
And if you didn't read about Tommy's interview yesterday , it would be awesome if you'd take a gander and throw some prayers in our general direction. Thank you so much, my prayer warriors!
