Gannon, Regan, Craig, and other random happenings…

Here’s a bunch of random things that happened in no particular order:

Who needs a knight in shining armor? I have a night in shining F-150 to come and jump start my car. After taking this picture, his words were: “Let me guess, that’s going on the blog?”

I snagged this beautiful sign from Pieces Home Market! Pieces Home Market is a local store in Decorah – I could literally transplant her ENTIRE store into my home. It is so hard to go in there and not buy everything. I just adore this sign, my mom actually wrote this on a page in my signature book when I was in second grade.

Kylie and I used to work together and she ventured off to launch this amazing store. I want to share her link with you!

Here is the link to her Facebook page:

Craig and I are currently in the process of recreating this mantle that she created and had on display in her store! Once it is made, (we bought the materials on our Home Depot trip last week) I plan to buy that exact basket from her to complete the look!

This beautiful lady and I spent some quality time together! Remember my best friend Regan got engaged? She is getting married on New Years Eve. I hadn’t treated her for her engagement yet so I took her out for a pedicure! We got sushi afterwards and she had a very special question to ask me…

Will I be her bridesmaid? I SAID YES!

This just really spoke to me after quite possibly the longest week I’ve ever had in my life.

Gannon has progressed so nicely is so many ways. Did you read his last unexpected medical update? Gannon loves Cheetos. He can sign “more.” He can say “BAH” (for ball). He can wave bye bye pretty regularly. He says “UH” of “uh oh” whenever he throws anything on the floor. He said “Da” the other night when Craig came home from work. We see more and more spunk every day.

I did get in contact with Milwaukee regarding his unexpected progress. While they are glad to hear it, they still want to see him. I am fully prepared to drive all the way to Milwaukee and they decide not to go forward with the testing – whatever is totally fine. They know more than I do.

What should I do with this table? We pulled it out of the basement of a church. It was HEAVY and falling apart. It needed a lot of work and Craig begrudgingly accepted the challenge and turned it into this beautiful piece. The problem? It’s short. It would work best as a kids table. What should we do with it? Harvest tables like this sell for $400+ in any other market…if they are tall enough. We’ve put about $125 in it and would feel bad losing that, especially because that doesn’t count Craig’s time/labor.

That’s all I have for today folks. Thanks for reading!

    Can you cut the legs down and make it a coffee table?

    We have a round oak farm table that is also too short for adults so my FIL put a set of casters under it. Of course, I keep the casters in the little cups so the table doesn’t roll around. Or saw off the legs shorter and make a coffee table.

    My first thought on the table was add casters, too! Might be easier to move and get wheels with locks on them. Beautiful table!!
    So great to hear Gannon is better….such a sweet boy!

    I’m so happy for you and your family that Gannon is progressing so well. My thought on your short table, which by the way is a great looking table. (Craig did a wonderful job) Is it possible to make tapered chunky leg extensions and use some type of trim where the two pieces meet? Not sure if it would work, I’m not a carpenter. I’ve been a blog reader of yours since your first post, I’ve been a reader of your mothers for many years. Both blogs are among my favorites.

    Could you replace the legs? Or possibly add sofa legs to the bottom…using pegs between the two..I did this to a table I found by the side of the road. Its my cutting table in my sewing so I needed it taller.

    The table is beautiful. Depending on how short it is, we put 5″ industrial spoked casters on our library table that lock. Good luck!
