Cute Things

 I found the cutest table the other day when Marcus and I went to an estate sale! 

I love it's shape. I wish I would have taken a before picture, but I don't have that kind of patience. My dad calls me "Do it now Dina" and I am the daughter of "Do it now Donna".

 The previous owners started to paint it cream and then gave up. I don't blame them. It's not easy or fun to paint stuff like this with a brush. I guess they didn't know about the joy of spray paint! 

This is Rustoleum, Seaside.
 It's super cute and curvy. I just brought it up to Golightly's to sell  and it got snatched up right away!

 Here's another cute and curvy thing:

 This little Katie Belle has done tons of swimming this summer. It makes for great naps and bedtime, so we are fans of swimming too.
Do you see Marcus's halo?  He almost went to Heaven tonight!
 For real! 
He choked on his food and I was in the other room. I heard a commotion, so I went in there and he was leaning over on the back porch. So I thought something was wrong with the dogs. Then he came in and waved me over. He couldn't make a noise, because he couldn't breathe! I tried to Heimlich him, but I am way shorter than he is. And I felt like I was hugging a tree trunk! It wasn't enough to pop the food out, but it was enough to move some air and he was able to choke up his food. And I was praying too! It just came out like "Oh God Help!" Thankfully He did! Katie and I were both shaken up...but Marcus finished eating his food! I think I would have been on a liquid diet for at least a week after that. 

Anyway, we are thankful he is OK.
And after all that drama, we went swimming!

And Katie got to do "blast off" about 100 times with her daddy!

It's OK if that video makes you nervous. My mom was about to pee her pants. And she asked Katie, "Are you sure you like that?"

It's good to have Dads around. Otherwise kids would be covered in bubble wrap with a helmet on their head!

Well isn't that just like a MAN??? To practically die while choking on some food... only to go back and finish cleaning their plate? Ha! Bless his heart!!! LOL So thankful God was watching over him and that you could do your part to help your man!

Katie is just the cutest!!! Swimming is the best nap assister, ever!

I LOVE that table!!! I have a small booth of children's goodies at a local store, that table would have been PERFECT! I'm gonna have to make a trip to the metroplex to visit this Golightly's! I love all the pics you post of it!

My husband did the same thing at Taco Bell. He decided to swallow the whole end of a burrito instead of biting and chewing. I ended up giving him the Heimlich, too. Right there in the middle of Taco Bell. With everyone staring. He then went back to eating while I sat in the corner shaking for the rest of the meal.

I enjoy your blog and I have also used Rustoleum Sea Side! It's my new favorite color.

Happy Friday!! Kelly

That is so scary. I've nearly choked to death twice and had the Heimlich done on me. Eek....so glad your honey is fine!
