Love me some Craigslist

Earlier in the summer I loaded my old car up with some old chairs I found on Craigslist.

They are totally cute and my original plan was to paint them and use them on the patio.
But THEN I found this little cute desk on Craigslist.
It was already black, thank goodness, and it was sorta shabby with some old paint showing through. Perfect.

I painted one chair black...
...and now have a little desk spot in our front entry.I am looking for the perfect lamp to set on the desk. I can't wait for Christmas so I can fill the little drawers and nooks with shiny baubles.

We went to our next door neighbor's house last night. They were having a little family and friend get together for their daughter's 1st birthday. You forget how CUTE they are at that age. She was just delightful.

After church hubs wanted to go to Joe's Crab Shack for lunch. Barf. I have strict policies against eating seafood while landlocked. You eat seafood while on the coast...any coast. The ONLY exception being a fine restaurant with a highly trained experienced chef. Joe's Crab Shack sadly does not fall into that any stretch of the imagination. And this is West Texas, we are way landlocked.

I wanted Mexican food. This is Texas, we can get some gooooood Mexican food dadgumit.

We allowed blonde rascal to be the tie breaker. He voted for Joe's Crab Shack based on the dessert selections which he had seen on a commercial.

There were about 4 other tables full. Hubs wondered why it was so empty on Sunday after church, in the Bible Belt no less where every restaurant within a 30 mile radius is crowded every Sunday at 12:15.

Hubs now knows why it was not crowded. It is also worth mentioning that he now supports my argument for only eating seafood while on the coast.

Amen and again I say AMEN to only eating seafood on the coast! There is no such thing as "fresh" seafood in the hub city. Gimme an enchilada platter!

Love the new creations, this includes the previous blog. You have way too much energy, maybe you need to do 10K in the morning. I love the black with the color of your walls in the formal dining room. You inspire me, does not mean I will do anything about it, but you get the wheels turning. FYI, I have been to Joe's ONCE. Nuff said.
