President's Day

I LOVE Monday holidays.  They are so great and they make the rest of the week so wonderful. I don't know how to describe it, but just get so happy having Mondays off.  This weekend, we started a project...

I love going shopping at Lowe's and Home Depot.  So much fun!  This is a before picture:
(Best I had.  I love Laila cuddles. So do her aunts.)

I actually do love having a tall counter for my island. It hides my sink and any dirty dishes I might have, but it's not an actual counter that you can have bar stools at. So we wanted to make it a little more custom.

Michael started putting together the pieces...

He didn't tell me that it nearly cost him his toe until he was completely done cutting.  How convenient.

Here's midway through.  

 Laila likes it, she just likes Daddy's undivided attention. (I can't imagine where she gets that from...)

And wah-lah the final product!  I like the way it turned out and the interest it adds.

Not bad for a weekend project!

To celebrate the finished product and President's Day and the wonderful weather and FHE, we decided to ride our bikes to Subway for dinner.  We have done it many a time.  Sometimes we take our puppy and eat outside.  It's fun.  On this particular evening we arrived with two bikes and by the time we sat down to eat, we realized we would be traveling home on one bike. I don't understand the need or even thought to steal someone's bike. It's pretty sad and pathetic that someone would sell their soul for a bike that's probably not worth much.  Needless to say, we looked pretty hot coming home- me on the handle bars, Michael pedaling, and Laila chilling in her trailer.

Happy President's Day! And to the dirty rotten thief, I hope you needed the bike more than we.


  1. I used to love Monday holidays when I worked. Now it just feels like any other day (especially cause Clark didn't get it off). I love a good weekend project, it's so fulfilling! I'm still sad your bike was stolen.

  2. Love the project turnout! I love monday holidays too, but not so much when I don't get them off...
