So there we are, living in the new house, preparing for the new baby (which means among other things, going on a budget diet), and a 9th Anniversary on the way in June. Now if we had been still living in the other house and weren’t expecting a little one to be arriving soon, I could have planned a fun getaway for us to take on this 9 year mark. But we aren’t in the old house, thankfully, and we are expecting a little, wonderfully!, so I will have to come up with some other way of showing my lady just how much she means to me. You see, I’m not one for cliched displays of affection (I’d rather spend hours making a necklace out of her favorite macaroni noodles than grab some roses and a box of chocolates on my way home from work) But what to do on a slimmed down budget? Well, when you are having trouble thinking of anything yourself, the best thing I’ve found to do is shut up and listen, and so I did.
“Ohh, Farmhouse table!” “Oh WOW! Look at this Farmhouse table!” “I just pinned this beautiful Farmhouse table!” “I SOOO want a Farmhouse table!” “Farmhouse Table!” “Farmhouse Table!” “Farmhouse Table!”
Hmmm, I know! I will build her a farmhouse house table. Only one problem, I didn’t know how to build a Farmhouse table. Actually, with my experience building houses, I could have built her an actual Farmhouse, but not a damn table. Well hell, a little lack of know-how has never stopped me. If I don’t know how to do something, then there is only one thing to do, LEARN HOW!
