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!

Thankful for Another Year

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. But we took the drive and we actually enjoyed it because the restaurant is located at the end of a ten-mile zigzag road surrounded by water. It's a very laid-back down to earth place where diners come in their most comfortable clothes. On this particular day everyone was wearing something to keep warm because the temperature was in the low 60s I think. To me it's freezing actually...but that's just me being a wimp. LOL.

After attacking a dozen [each for hubby and me, the little one had clams fettuccine] of garlic crabs, we braved the very cold breeze outside and attempted to take a couple of pictures on the deck. Btw, hubs wanted to eat by the deck but I said no. It would have been perfect if the temperature was in the 80s.

We were able to snap a couple of pics and here's one of them. I was literally shaking when this picture was taken...it hurt even just to smile.



Overhauled!

That's what happened with this blog. It seems the host for the personalized blog template I used to have expired. I checked one day and ...
