Here's some updates on things:
Aaron went to Texas for a selling trip for 10 days. I don't mind when he's gone, as long as it's not longer than that! Me and Carter get to hang out. But I decided to tackle potty training again, and just when I thought we were making excellent progress, Aaron got home, and Carter is a mess (yes, literally). I don't even know what to think anymore.
Anyhow, Carter got a ride on a carousel- a gorilla, not a horse, per his request.
Speaking of helping, Carter has been assigned to chores these days. It's his job everyday to put away the silverware, but he ends up sword fighting with them, and whatnot, and I have to go back and fix it all again. Whatever.
Carter and his GF Capri went on a little outing yesterday- to the aquarium. I love this picture- how she is so girly, and he is just all BOY.
Around the house:
The tree is trimmed and wonderful, but I've hardly made a dent in the Christmas shopping. I'm overwhelmed a bit, which is unlike me. I LOVE buying presents! I blame it on the baby/pregnancy.
I did manage to wrap some of the few I had so Carter's pretty excited about which ones are his =)
We've been looking around at what kind of dining table we want, and I'd decided I wanted a round one- with a pedestal base, because I HATE fancy tables where you have to work the chair legs around stupid table legs. We found this beauty at ballard designs, and it was affordable (or I thought so at least), and she's supposed to be delivered this week! It's about freaking time too, I've been really frustrated lately with ordering things online. Boo
Although these chairs are formal- looking and traditional, I kind of love them. They're actually covered in microfiber which makes them easy to clean, and then I want to change out the fabric on the back of the chairs with something kind of fun, that coordinates with the rest of the space. We shall see what happens after the table gets here...
I love these options as well.... any opinions????
I actually saw an episode of Gossip Girl a few weeks ago, and there was a table with all these yellow cafe chairs and I was smitten. That could be very fun =)
Pricey =( but cute
Still need bar stools, chairs for our family room, and then once I have the big pieces, I can finally plan colors and the fun stuff!
Meanwhile, in our office...
I am 8 months pregnant, currently sitting on the ground, with our computer on top of an ikea storage box. We need a desk PRONTO, and I just kind of fell in love with this one online....
It's classy and it's timeless and it's black oak. Aaron was sold too and I'm stoked! He gave me a budget, and this happened to be RIGHT there, on sale from Restoration Hardware and we went in and ordered it last night. I actually never thought I'd ever buy anything from that store because I think it's overpriced and typically boring. Sadly it won't be delivered til after Christmas but that's okay. The floor is working wonderfully for me right now!
