I've listed a few things on craigslist lately - mostly things that Ava's outgrown and I've become a little bit of a junkie for it! I lost out on this gorgeous formal living room set with wingback chairs and matching loveseat and tables and everything because dh was skeeved about getting used furniture. I cried. It was so perfect and soooooo cheap! Grrr, I get so mad thinking about it!

Anyway, so I keep browsing in hopes of finding treasures to fill my emtpy home. Well, I came across this yesterday and decided I was going to go for it. It was my birthday money and I'm using it for MY scrap space so dh can be as skeeved as he wants but I AM GETTING IT! So I did. Isn't is just GORGEOUS?

Right now it's in the empty formal living room. The cardboard on the legs was for transporting it. I can't wait to get it in my scraproom! It's a huge surface and I'm gonna use it all up :)

My birthday was awesome. On Saturday dh, the kids and I went down to Glenwood Ave. in search of furniture. We did lots of window shopping, no buying, but it was fun - well, as fun as it can be with two cranky kids. Then Sunday (my actual birthday) I left the kids with my sister and dh and I went out. He got me the table set I wanted for the kitchen - I LOVE IT - and we had Japanese food. It was GREAT to be without the kids!

I've decided that I spend more time putting Ava to sleep than doing anything else even though I swore I wouldn't do it again after Ethan. She's always been a good sleeper but the last month or so she's started waking up at night and rather than listening to her cry, I would get up and rock her. Well, on Wednesday nite when she got up at 2am I just couldn't take it anymore. I put her down in her crib and she screamed for what seemed like forever! But, I was good. And she fell asleep. Last night, I did it again and when I put her down she didn't cry but for a minute, sat up in her crib for about 10 minutes and went right down. Tonight, I just put her down a little bit ago and she just stopped crying and is now asleep. I guess it does work! Oh, it just breaks my heart to hear her cry and not comfort her. *sigh* You know what though? I noticed she took a long nap today too. Hmmm.... maybe the experts are right! :)

On etsy news: I'm in a treasury today and I also snagged one! If I could get the screen image I'd post it here but thumbalizr isn't working for me right now. Maybe I'll try again later. Ok here's the one I'm in: NC TREASURY and here's the one I made: A Tribute to Puerto Rico. Come check them out!
