Tablecloth Hunt

It's been a while since I looked for a tablecloth for our 'formal' dining table, aka, little one's work table. Yep, it serves as her working station during the day and our table for special occasions only. Ha! When we first got it I went gaga in looking for a tablecloth for it. All I got were runners. This time around I want to look for a real tablecloth for it. I haven't had much luck though but if I am looking for 90 round crinkle taffetta tablecloths then my search would have been over by now because I found a few of those already that I like. Not the ones I'm looking for though. We have a round table in the breakfast nook but I'm not sure if I want to put a tablecloth on it...yet. Maybe in the future? I guess I have to continue my search for the elusive tablecloth before the holiday season gets here...or is it here already? Ugh!

And now I'm a couple of years away from being a 'golden girl' as the little one likes to call it. Yep, I just celebrated a birthday. The day started with our little one coming in our bedroom at around 8 in the morning to hand me her handmade birthday card coupled with her birthday kisses. Her cards are becoming simpler as the years go by but still priceless to us. Much as I hate to admit it, I know that there will come a day when she won't be making those cards for us anymore.

In the past, we didn't really go out of our way to find a place to eat on any of our birthdays, unless the little one requested it. This time we actually did just that. We drove for more than an hour to get to a seafood restaurant which was recommended by one of hubby's clients. We've been looking for a seafood restaurant around here [well, apart from restaurant chains like Red Lobster] and we just can't find one. This one is still NOT in our area since it's in another county. …
