What Did You Do This Summer?

Nothing...I did nothing, nothing from my To~Do project list!! No awesome do it yourself for cheap shabby chic project!! With 3 young boys on summer vacation, 1 in preschool and a "let's go do something" hubby it was hard to do anything but have fun. Also we added a new member to our family and his name is Scout. He is the sweetest, cutest, fluffiest little Golden Retriever that God has ever put on this earth. The little boys love him and even Walter our 5 year old Chihuahua likes him!! Scout was my birthday gift from my hubby this year. I wanted to name him Atticus but Scout won in the popular vote.

I also experienced a *Super Awesome for Super Cheap Decorative Find*. I found on Craigslist for $45.00 an antique foot pedal operated *SINGER* sewing machine!!! Which I now proudly display in our family room and make everyone who sets foot in my house Ooooooooo and Aaaaahhhhhhhh over it. Man, woman, or child, no matter, you are going to look at my oh so beautiful antique foot pedal operated *SINGER* sewing machine, listen to my incredibly fascinating story of awesomeness and wish YOU had an antique foot pedal operated *SINGER* sewing machine just like it. You are going to want to run home to your computer to scour the postings on Craigslist for one of your very OWN!!!!! MUAH HA HA HA HA

Oh wow, I went on a little trip there didn't I?!?! It's okay I'm back, I'm focused, *whispering under my breath* on your jealousy of my *SINGER sewing machine. All kidding aside I do clearly love my new piece and am on the hunt for another one.I have wanted one of my very own for about 4 years now. My mother~in~law had promised me that I was to receive hers, which she used as a bedside table once she found a chair to replace it with. Well she found a chair and decided instead of giving me the *SINGER sewing machine like she PROMISED, that she liked the way it looked in her front living room as an end table. Now I'm not sure but I don't think my mother~in~law wants to give me the sewing machine.

Anyway I got tired of waiting and looked on Craigslist one evening and there it was. Now I'm not going to tell my mother~in~law I bought one because well she might actually give me hers one day and I don't want her to think I don't want hers!! Hers is in WAY better condition than mine and to tell you the truth it reminds me of her. It is strong, elegant, and they just don't make them like they used to.
