Saturday was a mother daughter day. Amanda and I went out to lunch at Primanti Brothers for her belated birthday lunch. Then we did a little shopping.

Their sandwiches have the french fries and coleslaw right in them. Talk about delicious.

We went to Walmart, Christmas Tree Shops, Hobby Lobby and made a quick stop in Lowes. It was a fun day.

Q&A from yesterday
    Ginny said she thought the dog looked too large to be Gibbs. It must have just been the angle that the picture was taken from because that was indeed Gibbs in the first two pictures.

Kate said she bet that Gibbs preferred the old curtains. Truth is I don't think Gibbs cares one way or the other about the curtains. He did prefer having the couch I moved to the basement sit partially in front of the window though. He would lay there and keep watch over the neighborhood.

Andrea asked if those were room darkening curtains. Yes they are and they do make the room very dark when they're closed. I ordered mine through Walmart. The funny thing was, I ordered 3 different things from Walmart at the same time and there was only one of them that actually shipped from Walmart. The other two items were shipped by different companies.

In the living room

By the time this post actually publishes I'm hoping that my new couch will have arrived. But as of right now, when I'm scheduling this my living room is still quite empty. I did however change up the window treatment. The curtains that were there we're ones that Wade picked out. I actually thought they were kind of ugly but he liked them so I didn't make a fuss when he ordered them. This is what they looked like

The photo is a little dark but you get the idea. They were a green color which was ok but probably not something I would have chose myself.

Now that I am mixing things up a bit I decided that I would order new curtains. This is what I got 
I was amazed at how much bigger the window looked and how much brighter it made the living room. Here they are open

Then I decided I wanted to add some shears. Would you believe that I have never, ever had shears in my house? I am really loving the way this looks 
And here is a closer look at the shears. They have a pattern on them which I really liked

Slim line card

Here's another card that I recently made. This is a slimline card. It fits into a #10 business size envelope. 

The standard size for these cards is 3.5" x 8.5" but I have been making them just a tad bigger at 4" x 9.25" so that they fill the entire envelope with very little gap. I guess I just like to do things my way.

Another card

Wades youngest son has a birthday coming up July 4th. I made this card to send him. It's rather plain but it's for a guy and I'm not real good at making cards for guys
