Fun With The Fords

My family is complaining because I haven't been blogging so here goes... I had big plans to clean/dig out my sewing room today. My sewing room became the dumping ground during Christmas vacation. Pretty much every room is back in order except that room. I was easily distracted and decided to go on an adventure with my husband instead.

Brett wants to turn our old dining room into his office so wanted to go to IKEA to see if we could find a new desk or desk top to use. So, off we went to check it out. He found some inexpensive cupboards to use in his workshop but we weren't tempted by anything for his office. We did find some linen'ish' upholstered chairs we will probably end up getting to replace our old kitchen chairs.

Then, off we went to a salvage place for inspiration. We also were looking for old wood to possibly make a new table top for our old table. We didn't find what we were looking for but I did show my husband some old windows I had previously checked out. I'm going to add them to my new family room over the tv. It's one of those things that seems great in my mind so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be great in reality. (I have no idea what to put behind the glass. It might just be windows with the wall showing behind.)

We then went to the Ford's house to play with the grandbabies. After putting together a marble contraption and playing with it, playing catch with a bouncy ball, reading a book, and playing with a battery operated tractor and track, we were all off to Pei Wei's for dinner, then stopped off to see what Restoration Hardward had. (I love everything in there and so does my husband. Too bad it's so expensive. I would be happy to furnish the whole office with Restoration furniture but it would take about 3 years to save up for it. You aren't in a hurry for your new office are you honey? I think it would be worth the wait.)

And then, we were off to Hatch Family Chocolate (supposedly they have a reality tv show about them). If you haven't been there, you are really missing out. The hot chocolate is made from melted chocolate mixed with cream. I don't even want to know how many calories are in that one little cup. It is amazingly good though.

See how much fun we were having?

Looks like more fun than digging out a sewing room!

WAY more fun than cleaning the sewing room! I'm so happy to see a post from you -- More please! ;-) Very cute pictures -- I love that second to last one -- the baby looks so cute with his eyes closed. I definitely think it would be worth it to wait for a RH study -- I love that store too!
