Some random thoughts for your Thursday:
1. Just so you know, a toddler has no idea whether they are decorating sugar cookies before Valentine's Day, or if you got a sugar cookie decorating kit on clearance on Feb. 17. She will make a mess and lick the frosting off all the cookies just as if it weren't a few days late. And that is good, because nothing seems to be happening on time at our house lately.
2. A great idea right before you are about to have a baby is to start refinishing a couple nightstands. My husband and I have done some furniture refinishing in the past and we've always used the real nasty, wear-special-gloves-and-work-outside-with-long-sleeves-for-protection stripper but being pregnant, I decided to use the electric sander route. For the record - nasty stripper is faster and more effective, in my opinion, but after a couple weeks of working sporadically on them, the nightstands are almost done.
3. Sick-mageddon hit our house this past weekend, the same weekend my husband and I decided to bite the bullet and finish off Amelia's kitchen set that we've been working on the the past couple months. This meant that not only did we have an inconsolable toddler, but we were also were tripping over all the tools, screws, paint rollers, and random wood pieces we had brought in the house Friday night to finish things off. My husband calls this project, "the dumbest thing we've ever done." Needless to say, he's a little tired of working on it at this point. Hopefully I'll have finished pictures of it in the next couple weeks.
Have a great week!
