A sink and paint fumes

I have to do a "My DH is the best ever!" post because it's been awhile. (sorry, honey)

Today I have a new kitchen sink and faucet, and the holes/dings/dents in my walls are patched!

I didn't even help with much of it. We found out our walls are painted with oil-based paint and I'm glad I was gone for some of the day while he was doing the touch-ups because the fumes are crazy strong. At least we were able to (sort of) match the paint.

Next we need to attack the Lightning McQueen border in the office/nursery. It's got to go.

Where was I? Fabric shopping! I've wanted to get out and do that for a long time, but I just can't go with the boys anymore, those days are just over. (they don't get easier as they get older!) They cringe at the mere mention of a fabric store these days. So I invited my mom to come and we hit 3 shops. She spent twice as much as I did- (sorry for inviting you mom!) She has the makings for 2 quilts, and I got fabric for a new diaper bag, 6 burp cloths, and a bundler.

Sorry, I think my fabric enthusiasm has hijacked this post. (sorry honey!)

Hey! Life has been crazy here, as I know it has for you too, but we really need to get together soon. Congratulations on the house, and on your little guy! We'll talk soon

Thank goodness you have been able to put your former hobby behind you and get back to being creative. Hope you can find the time to sew that nice fabric you purchased.
