It's hard living with this much passion for the Revolutionary War

I was going to write a post about stenciling letters onto burlap, and creating a pillow from it. (And I promise to get on that soon. Really, I will.) But you see... I have a new man in my life.

Yes, I know. Adrain goes out of town, and I find someone new. It's a problem. But he's so adorable, I couldn't help it. He's rather short, at least a foot shorter than I am, which is quite refreshing to be honest. It's nice to hug a man without getting my nose crushed against his stomach. Er, something like that.

Plus, this guy has big plans to defend me against the British Empire. Should they invade and attack. Not that they will... I'm just saying... You never know.

His name is George. George Washington. Ever heard of him? He's a little different than I thought he'd be. He thinks his back scratcher is a sword. And he wears a hand towel on his head....but whatever. To each, his own, you know? No such thing as a perfect man.

Of course, I don't know how long this relationship can last, because he likes wearing my clothes.

Hmmm.

Kind of reminds me of a boyfriend I once had, but that's another story for um... never.

  1. Now he looks absolutely adorable. Funny how our sons try to look serious (or like my son on Halloween...scary) and we say things like "oh they look adorable". haha

  3. Oh my, he is quite the handsome fella. And a back scratcher can totally be a weapon, just ask my hubby whom I've accidentally hit with one several times, he he! And hey, at least he looks good wearing your clothes! :-)

  5. Oh, this is so cute.

    I follow a blog called Boston 1775, and when this post came up, I thought, "huh, why is the fella who writes that blog writing a post about his passion for the Revolutionary War?" (His posts are great, but in no way reflective, personal, or "juicy." ;)

    As a US History teacher myself, I would give him an A+. That had to take some time.

  6. OH, and a bandana around his neck - Cowboy George! Who knew?? At least you're safe with your husband gone! Does he carry around money with his picture on it?? You're a hoot ~ ♥

  8. What a handsome pic! I think you've got a good sub for the time being. Might want to make sure he doesn't latch onto those clothes for too long, and do tell the story about the boyfriend who did. Peculiar...

  9. Awwww... I can totally see your problem. He is adorable. Forget about stencilling letters. Bask in the George Washingtonness that is your child.

  12. Do you think I can use his sword when he's done? 'Cause I have a hard-to-reach itch. ;)
    He looks extra cute- even with a towel on his head.
