Check out the awesome new decorator finish Emmylou just gave one of my white Barcelona chairs while I was vacuuming:
Obviously these chairs were purchased years ago when we were still in that "I'm not sure we want children" phase.
I'm proud to report that Emmylou is, indeed, still alive and breathing at this moment. And, happy to announce that after trying every cleaning product in my house, the Mr. Clean Eraser is pretty good at getting ballpoint pen off of white leather if you rub each mark approximately 10,000 times, as hard as you possibly can.
Speaking of Barcelona chairs, and just to keep some humor in this situation, let me direct you all to one of the most hilarious blogs I've seen in a while: Stuff White People Like. Scroll down to #79 and you'll find our chairs. Actually, if you know Gary and I well enough, you'll probably recognize at least 90% of the stuff white people like as stuff we like. BTW, Gary went out two nights ago in a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops even though it was going down into the 40's that night (hello, #86 and 84! He probably also brought his North Face jacket with him- #87!).
