Who took our Fall weather away?! I spent three long hours at the baseball fields watching Big B and his select team play ball and to say it’s hot is a total understatement! I’m getting a little worried that my pumpkins on my front porch are becoming pumpkin pie about now! Despite the heat, I found some shade and painted the newest addition to my home, a thrifty find that is real cute….especially with a little spray paint decorating therapy!
Here he is totally ready to chill at Grandma’s house….
And here he is after a makeover. White and sophisticated sitting on my modern white marble table with chrome legs, looking real cute. I don’t know if I’ve shown you my new lamps yet, either?! After years of crossing my fingers that Fort Worth, Texas would have it’s own Home Good store, it a done deal! After miles of walking through many a stores, this was a perfect fit for my space (so perfect, I bought an additional to complete the look in the room).
The week ahead will have Stud working lots of hours. So much so that he’s feeling like a dead beat dad even before the week has begun. Knowing his heart pull, I asked him to drive to a nearby church and cut a few stems of fall foliage from their landscape. After just one dirty look, he and Big B, with pocket knives in hand, totally made my day. The stink eye look from Stud is still cracking me up. He’s one of those guys that is blessed and cursed with the ‘super nice’ gene. His attempts to be mean are so out of character, they make me laugh. This particular look will definitely carry me through the extra hours of busyness!
