Do you have something in your house that you've wanted to throw away for a long time?? If you do then you know how happy I was today when Dave agreed to chuck the old papasan chair (aka Bachelor Pad Chic) that we've had in the living room for years. YIIIPPPPEEEEEE!! It was so liberating. This chair has served many purposes over the years, none of which really involved sitting in it...... it has mostly existed as a coat rack and a cat bed. Total waste of space! So with that gone, we have more square footage in the living room which is desperately needed as we become the next Romper Room. I would say that it looks better too, but in a room otherwise filled with baby toys, it's kind of irrelevant. That's okay.
The YMCA where I go to the gym has just completed a massive renovation and it's so fabulous now! I'm really enjoying all the new cardio equipment, big screen tvs, weight machines, etc. Dave and I try to go together at least once a week when we can get grammie to babysit. :) Otherwise we just tag team and go individually whenever we get a chance. We're also really excited about all the kid programs they have, for when Drew gets old enough. He can do swim lessons, tumbling, rock wall climbing, all kinds of sports and martial arts, dancing and baby yoga, crafts, etc. We'll be all over that! It's so convenient since it's less than 2 minutes from our house..
Drew and I ventured out to Joann fabrics today because I needed some yards of fabric with interesting textures for portrait backdrops. They were having a good sale, lots of "red tag clearance" and 50% off of those prices. This one crazy thing I bought, I held it front of Drew so he could touch it, and his whole face lit up and he giggled and his mouth went "OOooooooo". It was so funny. I'd say he really likes that one.
Anyway, not much else going on. More later!
