UPS Man

How exciting is it when the UPS man comes?  We all get into it, even the dogs- Right after I had Cole I was sitting on the couch nursing him and I saw one of my dogs out front chasing a UPS truck down the street.  I ran out there (with baby still attached to boob) and started yelling for him to come back.  He gets too close and gets clipped by the wheel which sends him rolling to the curb.  I am still screaming and finally, finally the UPS man decides to stop.  My dog Astro was ok, and Andy fixed the fence where he was escaping (let me tell you- that half coyote dog is a genius).  So now our UPS experiences are better.  Except yesterday when I was expecting a fabric shipment.  I opened the door to find this sweet little box from Garnet Hill.  Hmmm  tempting as it was to stick it under my shirt, I dutifully took it next door to my neighbor Kitty Jo.  Don’t you just love that name?  Her husband’s name is Rex.  Love it.  Anyway they are cool, my parents age, and they love kids and dogs and always have an assortment of both coming and going from their house.  When I got to her porch I saw my huge package sitting there.  She opened the door and I handed her my trade and lugged my big rolls of fabric back home.

But the good thing, new fabric!  Check these out.

I am so loving the brown and salmon and light blue polka dot, and the atomic looking one- so much fun!

So sign up for the email because as soon as these babies make it to the web site, an email is going out.  Now when will they make to the website, well that’s another story.  We have to talk to my tired husband about that one.  In the meantime if you see something you want, shoot me an email and we can work it out.

elisalou designs » The 3rd Child - [...] Last weekend Andy decided to seal the driveway.  He had the whole thing taped off and the kids and dogs were told to stay off.  As Cole and I were leaving to go to a friends house he made a bee-line for the driveway.  I told him not to walk on it.  He was still plowing full speed ahead so I started yelling for him to stop. “Don’t walk on the driveway!”.  Before I had finished my sentence he had lifted the caution tape and was making a run for it.  Of course he didn’t get far before he slipped in the black tar and did a face plant.  I froze.  My neighbor, Kitty Jo- remember her? She was weeding in her front yard and she looked up and me and said, “oh Elisa.  Ohhhhh Elisa!” while trying really hard not to laugh.  I leaned over and tried to retrieve Cole without having to walk across the driveway and also trying to avoid having him touch my white sweater.  He was black- head to toe.

elisalou designs » Blog Archive » A crazy Friday - [...] Lots of stuff going today, in-laws made it in from Tejas in one piece, kitchen progress, spending a bit of time with my next door neighbor Kitty Jo who just lost her dear husband Rex.  Cole is sick, hit the bead show that comes around twice a year.  Dinner at Bucca topped off with dessert at Graeters fot some seasonal pumpkin and cinnamon favorites- whew, I’m pooped.  It’s a nice warm bath in the big new tub and I’m off to curl up with a book.
