So I have a dining room table that I got for 8 buckaroos at Stuff Etc when I was here in July, and I loff it but don't have any chairs to go with it. Yes. So I improvised. It turned out pretty well. Here's the table:
|Looks pretty good, huh? Don't worry, the chair you can't see at the far left side? It was the piano bench.|
|It's pretty green, but I think it turned out alright. The missionaries were impressed with the size of the leaves. Haha. Oh boys. They're just little guys.|
|It actually looks like a real room now! (PS Can you see the striped pillows behind the polka dot ones? Does that pattern look familiar? It should! I used the flat sheet from that same set for the table cloth at dinner. No big deal.)|
So basically it was an amazing day today. My plan for tomorrow? Yard work. Yay! Be excited. My neighbor Aaron so helpfully did some intense weed-wacking for me the other day, totally under his own volition (ok, so maybe his mom asked him to do it...) and that uncovered all kinds of things, like stepping stones and even stairs that I didn't even know were back there! Who knows what other treasures lay hidden amongst the foliage?
Oh! And PS, my dear freshman year roommate Whitney called me today and it was a lovely surprise and made my night even better that it already was (which is pretty impressive seeing as it was clearly going incredibly well).
