BEFORE: pink and blue, “Hello Kitty” room, quite a mess, we’ve meant to paint you for 10 months!




DURING: up on a stool, crouched on the floor, old and new, pink you are so distracting!, Kimm made a smiley face on her leg (unintentionally!) with the paint brush, will this EVER end???








AFTER: grey is SO MUCH MORE sophisticated!, already dreading the second coat, but feeling OH SO accomplished!



I’ve said it MANY times before, but I’ll say it again…painting is HARD work!

SECOND COAT TOMORROW…going to relax with a grown-up drink and then head to bed.  I’m tired.

Glazed goodness…


What is this you say??


Seal Grey


Pebble Grey


A VERY tasty late night snack!


WHO could have created this mayhem in less than five minutes 🙂

Enough with the teasers.

Today was a really gloomy, rainy day.  Thankfully we had Glazed Pumpkin Spice donuts to cheer up our morning coffee.  Although I did feel they were sorely lacking in pumpkin flavor 😦

We FINALLY picked out colors for the office!  The darker grey for the bottom of the walls, below the chair rail, and the lighter grey for above the chair rail.  Best thing–it only cost us $20 for two gallons of paint and a new light switch–all because we had $30 in gift certificates to use!  GO US.  The worst thing–we got caught in a torrential downpour on the way back to our car, which we kind of forgot where it was!  Needless to say, our pants and shoes were soaked by the time we finally found it.  So tomorrow will be a busy day…painting our first coat (after taking out the stuff).  I’m excited.  And I also can’t wait to finally put up our big red clock that was the inspiration for this room!

I had three bananas that were making a lovely home for fruit flies, so I googled around and found a recipe for a simple banana cake.  It turned out WONDERFUL.  Recipe to follow soon…

Lastly, Izzy really can make a super mess of the couch.  She likes it to be ‘just so.’  It really is pretty cute.

Off to bed.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
