My Birthday wasn't too eventful this year. I wasn't feeling the greatest so I didn't want James to plan anything big. We planned on meeting James at work for lunch but while I while getting ready Ellie came in and told me about her foot being dirty. I looked and it looked like grease so I thought maybe she stuck her foot near or by something but then she goes "come mom, come, I show you." So I followed her into the family room and gasped!!!! There was something black all over my rug. I have pictures but it does not do it justice. It was a very large spot.
I first used a paper towel and tried to soak up as much black at possible and then tried using my best carpet cleaner and that didn't do much. I poured water over it to dilute it and that helped a little. Then I got dawn and vinegar mix and scrubbed it. The dawn made sooo many suds though so then I was working on getting the soap out but the stain did eventually go away. Ellie was so concerned. I wasn't freaking out but she knew it wasn't good. She wanted to help pour and dry. She's so sweet.But it came from these kiddy lawn chairs we have outside. She had brought them in that morning and I don't know if it's mud or some sort of rust or what and I have no idea how it would have gotten wet inside but the wetness was poured out when she tipped the chair to move it around.
Soo after that clean up we made lunch and headed to James' work. We ate with him and he gave me my gift which was a purse I saw while window shopping one weekend. Then we headed to Anthropologie so I could use my Birthday coupon. After walking around 20 times and worrying about Ellie breaking something I finally decided on a candle that is like the signature Anthro smell. I have to say, that is the best candle I have ever purchased. It smells so good and makes the entire house smell good. I highly recommend it.
It was super late because the crisp took so long so we were trying to hurry so I could get some pictures with Ellie too. I blew out the candles and everything and then I realized no one sang to me! Hahaha! SO we did it again.
