I have a problem...

Gunner and I hit the gym this morning after Ab's OT appointment.  A quick workout of Abs and legs (Gunner can barely walk so we didn't do any cardio) and we were on our way. 

We went to the Arc.  My friend Dave tells me to stay away.

I try, but there are always things that I need.

I got two of these:

Okay, okay, okay, so you have to look past the bad paint job and the ugly handles, but aren't they cute?  Of course they will be repainted and will look much better when I Gunner is done.  I like real wood.

Then I came across this:

Very rough, but I like the lines on it.  It will be stained or something by me Gunner and I see new handles in store.

We won't talk about the pyrex I found. 

Then I decided I was going to make a tutu.  It was soooooo easy.  Of course we have a huge static problem here, so it probably needs to go in the dryer a bit to make them lie down a little better.  I'll be making one for my niece next I think.

It actually looks cuter in person, and I straightened out the pieces afterward and it looked better and not so rough.  It took about a good 45 minutes to make from start to finish.

Em is making spaghetti for dinner tonight.  Yum.

Junior needs a haircut.  Em had Girl Scouts--anyone want Girl Scout cookies? 

Gunner and I had pho for lunch and some Vietnamese eggrolls that were the best I have ever had.  The eggrolls came on top of noodles with peanuts and green onions, lettuce leaves, a sauce, cucumbers, carrots, and bean sprouts.  We had never seen that before and guessed that we were supposed to make lettuce wraps out of the extras?

A dangerous, dangerous place, the Arc. I never leave there without something. You got some good stuff! I recently came home with a Danish modern chair I DID NOT need. But it was 3.99 How can you argue with that?

Girl scout cookies!!!! Could I email you an order and mail a check or something like that? I dont know anyone around here and I find it best not to stalk little girl scouts.

1) What is this Arc you speak of? It sounds like someplace I need to check out!

2) would you be will to share the instructions on making that Tutu?

Thank you so much for your comment! And I LOVE places like the Arc! They have one near Fort Lewis called The Treasure Chest. When I was pregnant and had that nesting craze I was in there ALL the time lol
