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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
