Apparently Nolan loves his new socks and even sent me an e-mail to say so. He told me he loves to wear and eat them. I'm glad they fit and hope he'll at least get a good month out of them before he's too big!
If you wonder what's been going in Holland, well - I'll just tell you.
Of course, a lot of work on the house.
We put up our first real paint color - we're trying it out for a few days before we go too far. This is our bedroom color.
We had our first adventures in carpet removal.
My back is screaming after 1 1/2 hours of yanking staples out of the floor. We're pretty thrilled how it turned out. We just can't figure out how to get the deep staples from the periphery up....any suggestions? Our needle nose pliers weren't working and the hammer was too big to wedge in.
And we installed our rail on the upstairs walk-out. Allstate was very concerned that someone really would just walk on out.
For all of you who voted on weed or not a weed - you were right. It's not.
Now what's your vote for this one?
We did manage to take some time out for fun. We met up with our friends (dopplegangers) Roger and Luann for the winery open house at Fenn Valley. We had plenty o' wine and fun. It's always fun hanging out with those two because we have an insane amount of stuff in common....just to give you a few, Luann knits, they ballroom dance, Dave Ramsey, Roger sings, and they love to go to wineries. It's fate. And no, unlike David B. says, it's not like that Friends episode where Monica and Chandler meet a couple on their honeymoon and start stalking them.
Lastly, we went to the first annual Butternut Bash. My co-worker, Mary, has an awesome house on two acres. We played volleyball (well, I attempted to play until I got reamed out for trying to return a serve from the front line), we ate well, and I had a great time kicking Brian's a__ at flip cup. Go team!
I think that's about enough for now!!
