Randomness.......

I sooo hope I didn't take my love of chalkboards too far! What do you think?????? I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but kept talking myself out of it. I finally did it this week and I REALLY like it. Clay and I have written on it, but Sawyer doesn't want to. I think it's because it goes against everything he was taught as a little boy, NO WRITTING ON THE WALLS! I'm sure he will come around.
Look what my boys made yesterday while I was at work! Boy have I raised them right or what??? Now, the mess wasn't cleaned up, but hey, I got cookies out of the deal and they are REALLY good!
One last thing, if any of you have been hesitant to try the new cucumber candle we have, don't be. I took one home last night to burn and it is WONDERFUL!!!! I think I have a new favorite!

On that note, I hope you have a great weekend!

I love, love, love your wall!! That'll be big fun at family get togethers! Boys like yours would be great to have around too! I'll have to try that cucumber candle, you've never steered me wrong yet.

Loave the wall, love the EXIT about the door, too cute! the candle sounds wonderful, but I am still burning the one you and heather sent over! smells soo good and it can mask any yucky odor...not that we have yucky odors in the kitchen or anything, oh boy, looks like I need to stop writing! I think I need a weekend to unwind...muwahhh!

Holy Chalkboard!?! How many cans did you use?! I love it, Tricia. What a great idea to just do the entire wall. The little frame is a very nice touch, too. I asked Ira over the winter if he wanted a chalkboard wall in his room and he said, "No, Mom. I'm not a baby anymore." sigh. Send Sawyer here a few days if he makes cookies. Ira makes messes. And that's about it. ;)
