I liked this weekend...granted it was pretty full, but it was all good stuff.
The house became even more colorful with the great paint debate of 2010. It seeped into other areas of the house as the colors were carefully considered and narrowed down. Colors even ended up on the porch...can you see them tucked under there? I'll admit with a friend's suggestion purple even was briefly considered...it didn't make the cut, but it did remind me of one of my favorite children's books.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the input I received when I asked...one of the very best aspects of having a blog is what an amazing resource the people who read it are. And all the yellow votes made my mom very happy. The color is officially decided and I was about to spill the beans, but then it occurred to me to wait for a big reveal. I will say though that some might think boring won out in the end. Hopefully I'll be sharing this week.
Speaking of this week I'll have a couple of projects up on the Cartwheels blog...sharing a little something tomorrow...
And later this week the next installment of my Happy Everything article with a big travel project...
Other projects this weekend included designing various elements of a teacher lesson plan book with a family friend. The cuteness almost had me wanting to be a kindergarten teacher instead of a community college professor...almost. If you're interested in it please let me know and I'd be happy to share what we came up with.
Last night was a BBQ with friends which meant more potato salad and baked beans. And a champagne toast to celebrate new babies, engagements and graduations...I may have enjoyed my own glass and stole Sean's too.
Then we spent this morning helping my brother organize the new room he's renting in a pretty prime location down by the beach. I resisted the temptation to put his t-shirt collection in rainbow order, but he officially has a spotless room and just maybe a new appreciation for his super annoying older sister that always used to get upset when he made a mess...maybe.
The weekend finished up a with Sean's summer league basketball game and onion rings...we have to stop at Portillo's if we're in a five mile radius of the place. Then there was a long walk when we got home.
Hopefully we can follow-up this weekend with a good and productive week.
