buttons and blankets

Here it is ladies and gentlemen...the moment you've all been waiting for...

You may now take my button!

[What? No one was waiting for that?  I'll just pretend I didn't hear that.]

And, in another bit of news, here is our new bedspread:


I know this isn't an awesome picture [which I'll blame on our camera rather than on the photographer], but isn't it cute?  [You may only respond if it is in the affirmative.]

Also, my best friend Ashley made us this fish blanket:


[Ok, I know that couch isn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, but it came with our furnished month-to-month apartment.  Don't judge.  And maybe overlook the boxes in the following picture.]


Tim sporting the fish blanket like the male model that he is.

Wait...what's that you say?  You don't see any fish?

That's ok.  There aren't any.

It's Ashley's family's tradition that all started with a blanket which did have fish on it.  Most of the blankets which have followed it have not sported any fish, but they are still called fish blankets.  [Eh, Pancha?]

Anyway, we love it.

My mom also made us an awesome quilt for our wedding, but the only picture I currently have of it has it covered with laundry.  Someday I will show you a picture.  Because it is awesome.

But.  Today is not that day.

Ok, time for homework.

Over and out!
