Christmas is in the air!

I am in love with an artist named Sid Dickens. Well, I'm actually not in love with him...just his work. I collect his "Memory Blocks." You can see them in the post below about my dining room. They are the tiles in between the 2 windows. Well, he has just unveiled his 2008 Fall and 2008 Holiday Collections. My dad got me one of his Holiday blocks last year and I love it. I really would love to get one from each year's collection. Hint...Hint. I am in love with the Angelic Spirit tile from the Holiday collection. Once he retires them, they are gone. The holiday ones are retired quickly and hard to come by. Therefore, it's kind of like an investment. They only go up in value. I hope you enjoy them!!!!

Welcome Home!

We worked a ton at our house in Kyle this weekend. Thank you, Daine! Justin couldn't have painted as fast without you!

The house is really looking good. I have attached a picture of my new favorite room. It's our formal dining room. I love the new hutch and I wanted to show everyone the chairs that I recovered, the table runner I sewed myself, and finally the cornice boards that I nailed together myself and covered with my handy staple gun. I also added the decorative trim with my hot glue gun! I love crafting/decorating. I really hope to be like Sarah Hogan one day. By finishing this room, I feel I am one step closer. If only I could learn to smock my kid's clothes!

The only thing I have left to do is hang the pictures on the wall and have Justin hang my new chandelier.

I hope everyone has a great week!

New China Cabinet

Here it is....

The wine rack is removable. I don't think I will keep it attached.


Why is it that today has been a horrible day? I had an amazing weekend in A-town and today has been no fun. Here are my random thoughts for today:

--Why did the drive up window at the bank make me wait 14 minutes for my deposit while everyone else around me was helped? All the lady said was, "Sorry you had to wait so long."

--Will my toe ring come off or will it need to be cut off?

--Will we get a good pic of Chase on Saturday during our 3-D ultrasound?

--Is it bad that my 2 sources of news are Fox News and Perez Hilton?

--Will my house in Kyle ever have green grass again?

--Why was the Nerds Rope I bought today totally stale?

--Should I interview the peditrician my OB referred me to or just make an appointment?

--How's Bootsie doing (she stayed in Austin this week)?

--What will I eat for dinner tonight?

--Is it considered a "date night" if you are going to the landfill after hours with your husband to see how things are going?

--Will the new china cabinet look good in my dining room?

I hope everyone has a great day!

Let me know your random thoughts!
