On Placeholders


If I have time to write tonight, I'll write about what Troy and I got at Troy's mother's side of the family annual gift exchange. If not, well, just enjoy the photo above which seems appropriate for those who love summer and hate winter (definitely not me). Have a good weekend!

[Many hours later...]

Well, Troy got a gum ball machine and I got a birdhouse! I've always wanted a birdhouse. Fun stuff. Now back to watching TV with Troy and the in-laws, who are spending the night at our place. Until tomorrow!

    that is sure fun! I stopped exchang­ing gifts with my in-laws since they kept on send­ing us checks… first, they asked what we want­ed, we told them… and they sent checks any­way.

    The pho­to looks great, again. What’s a neat site to get the tex­tures?
    @tia: That’s good of them! Haha!

    I love the pic­tures and the blog. I was won­der­ing if you’ll do a tour of your new home. I know you men­tioned you would do that once you moved in and got set­tled. I am curi­ous to see how you dec­o­rat­ed. My hus­band and I just bought a home, so I am inter­est­ed in see­ing how oth­ers dec­o­rate their homes.

    tia: It’s just a ran­dom gift exchange thingy. If you’re lucky, you’ll get some­thing you actu­al­ly like. If not, well, no big­gie. You have no expec­ta­tions any­way. Heh. My in-laws are pret­ty good when it comes to gift-giv­ing. They only give cash/gift cer­tifi­cates for birth­days. For Christ­mas, they’ll get us stuff from our wish­list. They’ll start bug­ging us to give them our wish­lists months before Christ­mas!
    Lance: CG Tex­tures is my favourite site for tex­tures.
    joy: No house tour yet because we haven’t fin­ished dec­o­rat­ing the house! It’s still pret­ty much a work in pro­gress. Good luck dec­o­rat­ing yours!
