Why I’m a weirdo (and another painting project)
I hate romantic comedies. I know, I’m a girl and a girly-girl at that and should LOVE them, but I just really do. not. They usually bore me to death. Of course, there are exceptions. “You’ve Got Mail” (makes me LOVE New York!) and anything by Audrey Hepburn. I prefer suspense, thrillers, but that’s just me.
***Sidenote: I just took Jack’s pants off to change his diaper and was rewarded with a handful of poop. Nice. That doesn’t make me weird, but it did totally gross. me. out!!
On my Christmas wish list this year I had a staple gun, a sander, and a camera tripod. Is that weird? I think I should have been a boy…who is a carpenter. Don’t worry, I did get some of the girly-est stuff in the world for Christmas – in addition to a sander that I am just thrilled about!
It’s the day when my kids hide in their rooms for fear of being spray painted. They see mama coming with a can of spray paint and a hammer and they run. Poor little dears.
So yesterday and today were my “project days” and I worked on making this sign for our foyer:
I was inspired to make it because of this sign on The Lettered Cottage blog.
I made it with scrap wood from our garage that the hubs cut to size. The eye bolts and chain that hold the smaller sign were silver, and I made them black with a marker, because I’m just such a professional painter. Ha!
I redecorated my hallway a bit – inspired by Lola B’s adorable Frenchy farmhouse!
Sometimes I’m afraid that people who read my blog get the wrong impression of who I really am and what my personality really is. Blogging is weird like that. You don’t really *know* a person unless you spend face-to-face time together, which I don’t always get the opportunity to do with you.
Oh, well, hopefully you will think that I am way cuter, more funny, smarter, and waaaay more talented than I actually am!! I won’t try to change your mind!
Have a Happy New Year! And thanks for reading this little ol blog!
