A New Dining Experience

So ever since we moved into this townhouse, we haven't had a "real" dining room table. Mostly because our dining room is so small, a normal size table wouldn't fit in there, and we didn't want to spend a few hundred on a set that we most likely wouldn't use in the future, because it was so small. So finally I convinced hubby to help me build a table. It was a fraction of the cost, we could get the perfect size we wanted for our space...and it was fun! So finally, after a few Saturdays and thanks to a "snow day" weekend, we got it done! Here it is....I'm so proud!


I still want to find some cheap chairs from goodwill or something to refinish or cover. But we have a real table now....I'm so excited. Our first meal on it was fajitas...and it worked perfect :)

Fun Stuff

So it's been a pretty crazy past couple of days.....I'll let the pictures explain.

So that's my a cast...isn't that the craziest cast you've ever seen? Yeah, so 5 weeks ago I was playing volleyball....spiked a ball and felt pain in my thumb. It was painful ever never got better, and I would keep hitting my thumb over and over every day, re-injuring it. So I finally went into the doctor at the end of last week, and I tore a ligament in my thumb. He said if I had come in right away after my injury, I would have been in a cast for 6 weeks. Now I have to be in it for 4 now I had 5 weeks of excruciating pain, then a cast for 4 weeks. Oh well. It feels really great now, because I can't move it, so that part is fantastic. But I feel pretty retarded, a grown woman in a cast. Cameron tried to get me to do hot pink...but I felt blue was more dignified! What do you think?!

Your Prayers Are Needed

A friend of Cameron's from forever ago is missing at sea. He and a few friends went deep sea fishing, storms rose up, and they have been missing now for 3 days. The boat was found with one person on it...not our friend. If you could keep the families in your prayers...they are in need of comfort now. If you want to know the whole story, here's the link. Our friend is Marquis Cooper, the owner of the boat, we don't know the others.
