Hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend. Mine started out with a visit to the ER and an overnight stay for kidney stones. I tell ya I've never experienced a pain quite like that before and God willing, never will. If you've had them you know what I'm talking about. Lucky for me I have the most wonderful husband who never left my side and took care of me all weekend. Thank you sweetie!
Of course the doctors wanted to make sure the baby was okay, so they ordered an ultrasound to look at my kidneys and a complete check of the baby. They discovered that I'm farther along than we thought and pushed my due date up almost 2 weeks, and the baby is doing great.
I think he's sucking his finger! Awww!
Okay, moving on to the real reason you are here. With a lot of help from Mr. Bliss I tackled a project that I've been putting off for months! (Hence why I'm joining Procrastination Tuesday!). Together, we transformed my kitchen chairs from blah:
Using 2 yards of fabric I scored at the flea market for $5.
I simply took off the old fabric using a flathead screwdriver to remove all the staples and left the old padding in place. Then Mr. Bliss used his electric staple gun to add the new fabric. Easy peasy!
Hey, did I mention that today is my birthday? So we celebrated last night with our parents here at the house for cake and ice cream. I threw in a little surprise for them.........
Everybody close your eyes.
Okay, now OPEN!
That's my mom in the front left and my dad in the back right - they currently have 5 granddaughters!
My sweet MIL.
Tears of happiness.
It was a great ending to a crazy weekend!
