fancy...


So after many years of wishing, dreaming.. and secretly being jealous of people with refrigerators with water and ice dispensers....we finally got one. Thank you tax return! I have to say, I felt pretty darn fancy. Ice and filtered water whenever I want?! oh, why yes... thank you!
It had been less than 2 weeks when I walked into the kitchen to find this:

my wonderful 2 year old son decided he wanted to contribute to the fridge art.. and make it permanent. yup. that's permanent marker on there. I had to laugh, or else I would cry. We were on our way out the door to church for Easter Sunday.. so I took a deep breath and we left.
When we got back I tried EVERYTHING. magic eraser, bleach, acetone, alcohol.. nothing... a little smudge here and there would get smudgier.. but nothing got it off.
I thought of other solutions..we could frame the lower part and showcase his art.. or, we could graffiti the whole fridge and TRY to make it look cool.. nothing.
guess what got it off?!

perfume.

yup. with the first spray the ink dripped down the fridge and wiped completely off!!! who would have thought. now, there are spots that are a little darker and deeper that were a littler harder, but I could not believe it... and now, my kitchen smells delightful. yay for not freaking out!!~
