Tuesday January 20, was a big day, we swore in a new president, the first black president. Historic.
But also, I think it worth mentioning that Tuesday January 20 was also my birthday!
Dave had been working on my birthday present since before Christmas. Hard at work at the basement work bench for weeks! On birthday morn we woke up nice and early (7:00 yeah) and Dave sent me upstairs while he set up my presents downstairs.
Side note/back story: When we moved from Dallas Dave was in a huge hurry (he only had a weekend to get everything packed up) and for some unknown reason he decided to wrap up our furnature using our red comforter from our bed (instead of old sheets and the like)! Needless to say, our comforter did not make the trip without harm. There is now a nice big hole right in the middle! So for the last few months we have been keeping our eyes open for a new comforter and bedding.
So when I came down this is what I saw:
The comforter at the foot of the bed is new and convieniently covers the big hole. The throw pillows are also new. What can I say, my hubby has some mad decorating skills. He also made...yes made by hand... that bulletin board. He picked out the fabric, ribbon and everything and put it the whole thing together. Again, what can I say, my hubby has some mad crafty skills! And if that wasn't enough, he recovered those frames with fabric to match the new bedding. Need a closer look??
