I have not been posting a lot of pictures lately... my camera was dead and I had no charger, I got an iPhone and have been instagraming away instead of taking real pictures, my husband was out of town and we were in survival mode, then my husband was back and we were celebrating.... etc. I have been bringing my camera places, but I haven't pulled it out yet. However, my SIL took some pictures when we went to Disneyland for Flissy's birthday. ( And I am pretty sure she took some from a Disney trip we took in June, so we have those to look forward to as well.)
Other than these, I will probably start taking pictures again soon. Or I will start posting my instagram pictures on here or something.
As you may know, our favorite guy headed out to Mississippi for a summer sales job. He called me last night and let me know that after crunching the numbers and discussing with a bunch of the guys, he didn't think it would be worth it to stay for the second half of the four month job (he has been out for just over 8 weeks at this point) and that he would be coming home.
He did a great job and worked really hard, but these things are high risk, high reward, and the projected reward at this point just wasn't incentive enough to keep us separated for the second half of it. I think it was a good experience in general, but I am definitely glad it is over. He should be back sometime tomorrow, depending on his sleeping set up tonight.
Anyway, we are looking forward to being four again. And I thought my blog readers would be interested. =)
Many months ago I got these cute little doll furniture pieces at a thrift store. I was going to fix them up and give them to sister for Christmas, but it didn't happen. So, I finally got around to it a couple days before her birthday party.
This was attached to the bottom of the high chair. I tried to use it to determine when the thing was made, but the language on these warnings pretty much hasn't changed since the 1920's. I am guessing it is from the 70's just based on the fabric. I am guessing that it if it was old or valuable, it would have been on antique roadshow instead of at Salvation Army, so I am glad it isn't too old.
I spray painted it white, added some quilt batting to cushion the dolly's bottom, and threw on some bright fabric. Flissy's babies just love their new digs. (By the way, lest you think I am too awesome, be aware that this was 100% a hot glue gun job. I still don't know how to sew. The ruffle on the high chair was not how I wanted it, but maybe someday I will learn to be crafty and do it right.)
