Busy Weekend

Well we had a busy weekend! Saturday morning was opening day for baseball. This was our first time for a baseball opening day as opposed to a softball one. Much different and I think I prefer the softball! We all had to get up and Trevor was in uniform to stand around and watch kids from LAST SEASON get awards.  They never even introduced the teams or anything. Total waste of the morning. When that was over we went out to breakfast at IHOP (almost $40 and we didn't even have Jess with us!). I remember why we don't go out to breakfast much anymore. After that it was a trip to Wal Mart to pick up a few things and listen to Trevor cry about wanting toys the whole time and then back home so I could give Jessica a ride to her friend's house.

I broke out the paint and started painting my entry way. Here is a before picture

and my "helper"

Colors are horrible in those pictures! I really need to buy myself a new camera. I think I've said that a few times huh? I'm painting the door wall and the little entry wall there the dark green. The other walls and the ceiling are a light green which is a little more mint than sage unfortunetly. The trim and the doors are nice white. I got most of the painting done but I need to get more of the white to finish the trim. I had only bought a quart. I wish they made 1/2 gallons for paint! It seems like everything is always too much or not enough.

Saturday night we ended up going over to my brother's house to hang out and BBQ. That ended up with us spending the night and nursing big hangovers the next morning. Woopsie!

Sunday I had a girls day out date with 2 of my friends. We went and saw Valentine's Day, which I thought was totally cute and then went out to a late lunch at Chili's. I'm loving their Quesadilla Explosion Salad. Yummy! Came home and threw some chicken in the oven for everyone else to have for dinner. Followed by more painting.

I went in to fold clothes and Scott actually came in to help me. WOW I about fell over. So nice to get some help!

Pin It

Quesadilla Explosion Salad is my favorite thing ever at Chili's. It's what I always get. Sounds like things are going well for you. I hate painting but really need to.
Can't wait to see the finished project.

I have sage walls in my bedroom AND a very expensive camera and I have NEVER been able to capture the color. Nor have I been able to correct it with Photoshop.

Make sure you post an "after" pic of your entryway! I love before and afters!

(You've inspired me to get to painting mine!)

your little helper is so cute! I love that cheeky pose - as if he had been painting something he ought not to have been painting!!!
