I made a rug! I enlisted the help of the carpentry dream team better known as amy and tessa. I was inspired by this post. In total I spent $50 and got an awesome area rug! I had some problems along the way especially with painting. I bought a cheap set of brushes that all broke within the first 5 minutes of painting. Due to a lack of proper paint roller I had to hand paint the 6’x9’...

das ist gut.
we took aimee to a baseball game! although a little reluctant at first, i somehow convinced her to come along with us. they had a $5 ticket night at dodger stadium: it was a sold-out game: i’m in it for the garlic fries and nachos: i look like i’m really into the game, but in reality i’m just trying to keep a nacho from falling out of my mouth: it was so nice...
