Hello! So I totally missed our date last week. Sorry! I was busy in the kitchen prepping for a tea party I hosted. I love hosting parties. Do you? I just wish I was better at bringing the WOW factor to the table. I always find that I need more pretty; I need to figure out how to create it.
Other than replicating what’s on a Martha Stewart webpage, I’m stumped. I’m just not that creative when it comes to decorating the table. Or my house for that matter.
Our place still looks like we just moved in: no photos on the wall, no hanging artwork, nothing. It’s hard when you’re renting to make a place a home Well I find it so. There are only so many holes in the wall you’re allowed and I think we’ve met our quota with the recent baby gate installation and all the artwork hanging in the baby’s room (his room is the only one that is complete. Of course).
What wouldn’t I give to have someone decorate our home. I’m just not into decorating. I don’t see beyond a throw or some simple pillows. Places like Marshalls, TJ/TK Maxx overwhelm me. Doesn’t help matters that I don’t know where my home decor tastes lie. Anyhoo…
Nothing much more to report other than my boy is 11 months today! 11 months! Holy schnitzel! He’s looking more and more like a little boy. Sure I am a bit sad he’s no longer a baby. But my goodness, how good it feels to finally have a boy that is sleeping longer (WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO) and can sorta communicate. And his constant showing of understanding and knowledge leaves me gobsmacked. I am enjoying this boy so so much. He’s very independent, inquisitive, determined, and quite the comedian. Being his mama is truly an honor.
Sorry to leave you with that sappy bit but I am off to top off my cuppa. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping to get some sewing done, assembly style. Nothing exciting, just a few bits I plan to sell at a flea market hosted by my mommy group. Later gators!
