the only thing worse than moving is moving across the country. how do two people and one dog have so much STUFF?

i respect crafty people. i really, really do.
i don't have a crafty, creative bone in my entire body. but sometimes i like to pretend.
like that one time when i decided i wanted to make my friend who was pregnant a baby blanket.
i ran to the fabric store, really excited about my upcoming project. hah.
i spent WAY more on that stupid fabric than i would have even bought the darn blanket for. not to mention the many tears that were shed over my sewing machine. i got SO frustrated because it a) looked like crap. b) i am embarrassed to even admit how much just the materials cost.
it was one ginormous waste of time AND money. this was over a year ago and i still get heated just thinking about it.
i promised myself i would never sew again. and i haven't.

the other day, i was riding my bike down 7th south and spotted this baby with a sign on it that said $7.50.

i told tannon about it and made him drive by it with me. he didn't think it was that great of an idea, probably because he knows how ornery & frustrated i get when i try to be "crafty". i slept on it.

the next morning we drove by to see if it was still there and the sign had changed to $5.
since the coffee table in our front room just isn't cutting it for a computer desk (the computer gets in my way of my TV watching),
i figured... it's only 5 bucks. even if i make it look worse than ever, it was only 5 bucks.

and there you have it. sorry the pictures aren't that great. and, the antique look usually isn't my thing, but i wanted to give it a shot.

oh, husband

this morning as i was getting ready to leave for the gym, the husband and i had the following exchange of words:

me: (as husband is closing the blinds) don’t close the blinds. it lets light in and light is good for the soul.

husband: well, you’re leaving and my soul is already good.

my dad always said growing up that when people tease me, it means they like me. tinman must be madly in love with me.
