Non-Weekend Update

I haven't done a very good job of blogging this week, so I thought I'd show you some pictures of what's been going on around here.

Early on in the week, I snapped and killed everyone within strangling distance. I think you'll understand why when you see the uh...renovations that were recently made to our guest bed.

So to blow off some steam, I bought six hundred tables.

I didn't actually buy this first one; my parents gave it to us when we went home for Christmas and we just got around to setting it up. Isn't it beautiful??? It was originally my grandmother's and my mom refinished it for us because she is amazing.

Once we got it set up, I thought to myself, "Self, I think you're really onto something with this whole table should go get some more of those." So I did. (Well, it was partly that, and partly the fact that we've been using a couple of cheap folding tray tables as bedside/end tables and I got tired of not having anywhere to set my drink down in the living room.)

Sarah asked me what I was going to put inside the glass door and I said, "Probably a roll of toilet paper." When she looked puzzled/concerned, I explained that I always keep one next to my bed in case I need to blow my nose. And then she introduced me to the concept of tissues and I became instantly less trashy.

We made one other very exciting purchase this week:

All that poop in the backyard doesn't stand a chance.

AND to wrap up the week, I'm trying something new. I've become slightly obsessed with this website called Le AnimalĂ©. (You might remember the wolf necklace I posted on Tuesday in my birthday list.) Anyway she posted some pictures of her process and as I was looking at them, I started to think maybe it was something I could do. So yesterday I bought some clay and this is what happened!

I haven't painted it yet but I'll post more pictures when I do.

So that's it! Have a great weekend everybody!
