home improvement

Man I loved that show growing up. Not because of Tim Allen's hilarious slapstick humor and multiple injuries. But because of JTT!! I mean, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, helloooo? I had several friends who studied abroad at St. Andrews in Scotland at the same time as JTT, and the little 12 year old inside of me so I wanted to send them a Lisa Frank notebook for him to sign. Thankfully, I resisted.

We have been spending this horribly annoying never-ending waiting time getting stuff done around the house. Yesterday, Brian had the day off to celebrate some dead Presidents, which is my favorite part about him working at the bank. After a great morning relaxing around the house, we hit up the Home Depot and scored on some awesome stuff...a new toilet seat and a gate for the top of the stairs. Shut your mouth, I know you are so jealous you can barely stand it. Especially of my new mom outfit, modeled in the picture.

Brian spent the evening installing all of our new prizes and I worked on cleaning our family cradle. This cradle has been in my family since the 1800's and has held all of my relatives on my mom's side. This will be where Lila will be spending the first couple of weeks at night, beside our bed. Hurry up Lila, so you can play with all your new toys!

"I think men have a lot in common with babies.
We get cranky when our dinner isn't ready on time,
we like to take naps in the afternoon,
and I don't know any man who doesn't love a
spirited game of peek-a-boo."
~Tim Allen, "Home Improvement"

So, I'm curious, what is so special about the new toilet seat? I mean, if I'm missing out on some cozy seat for the pot I'd like to know more about it:). lol. Glad you guys got some things done and enjoyed your day off together:). That cradle's history is awesome!!

Hurry up, Lila!!
