Today I finally finished stripping and sanding the green paint from my grandma's dresser. You can see the difference in the picture from the matching green thing behind it. I just finished putting a coat of stain on it and I can tell it's going to look so awesome when it's finished.

Punkin Hat

Ok, here is the pumpkin hat I just finished. I promised Christy I would post a picture of it. She had made one already and it can be seen in the Halloween pictures, but somehow Jake lost it on Halloween night. I didn't want her to have to make another one, so I went ahead and figured out how to do it myself. I added a second leaf and made it one or two rows bigger, I lost count on the rows, lol. It's already stretched out a bit because Jake has been pulling it on and off his head for two days... I guess he likes it!

Not much else is going on... Mike is getting really stressed from being overworked at work... Mike's dad flew in last weekend to find an assisted living place to live here so he can be closer to Jake and he's already put a deposit down, found a moving company, and is flying one-way back here to live next Tuesday.

Mike, Jake and I are going down to my dad's house on the lake this weekend, hopefully all the fall colored leaves haven't fallen off the trees yet.

Oh! Check out this news article. I can't believe Australia has requested that their Santa's say "ha ha ha" instead of "ho ho ho" because some women might find "ho ho ho" offensive... gees, get a grip! If a woman is offended because Santa says "ho ho ho" then she has some major issues! ~Adria

Unexpected source of wisdom

I subscribe to the Hobby Lobby weekly specials email list and this little nugget of wisdom was at the bottom of the ad:

"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
Muhammad Ali

That's an interesting perspective... just thought I would share. ~Adria

Celebrity bashing

Ok, so I was up until almost one in the morning because I found a couple of websites that I could not tear myself away from. I'm sure everyone has a fascination with at least one or two celebrities, right? Pretty on the Outside is by an artist who uses photoshop with their drawings and paintings of celebs depending on the situations the celebs have been in recently... of course Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton have the most art posted, lol! Planet Hiltron has photoshopped pictures of normal people with celeb faces, it's hilarious!

I hope everyone had a good Halloween last night! ~Adria
