Weekend Update

As I got Madison dressed for bed tonight, I couldn't believe it was already Sunday night. Weekends always fly by, but this one was one of the busiest I've had for some time. I hardly saw my kid at all this weekend, her social calendar makes me a little dizzy sometimes. She spent most of Saturday and Saturday night with her Aunt Toni and the family, and I picked her up this morning only to chauffeur her over to her to the in-laws for the whole day to spend time them and a cousin.

Seeing as Maddy was busy being a social butterfly this weekend, I made the most of the time. I spent most of Saturday with Amy. I started the day having breakfast with she and Ken; Amy made me the most amazing omelette I've ever tasted! Then she, Teri and I spent some time together getting work done that Amy had asked for some assistance with. Afterward, Amy and I had this fantastic lunch and went shopping! We are very good shopping companions, which is pretty dangerous because the more I browse, the more I spend. :) Amy and I started with some shoe shopping, and I found two fabulous pairs of shoes that I will now need to buy outfits just to wear, as well as two pretty pairs for Maddy. Afterward we spent somewhere near an hour and a half in Target... I'd had only 5 items on my shopping list but I left with over 20, LOL.

Amy said something I've been thinking about since yesterday - that I'm more girlie than I believe I am. I do believe she's correct. But even the most tomboy of tomboys can be girlie in all its lacy fuschia glory with some inspiration.

Having today without a little one to keep entertained, we decided to do more painting in the house. We got the area at the front door and one of two hallways completed in about 6 hours. Here are before and after photos:

The difference is pretty subtle (and there are two spots in the after photo that are just shadows). We went from a flat white paint to what I like to call a nougat color. It looks like the inside of a Three Musketeers. What was seriously cool was watching any scuff marks, stains, and blemishes disappear as I rolled paint!

This is the first time this weekend I am sitting and relaxing, and I'm already looking forward to staring at the inside of my eyelids.

Sounds like you had a productive weekend. I know that Amy appreciated the assistance and had a blast hanging out after lunch.

Sorry about the Sonio's wierdness, though. That's just bizarre.

I can definately see the differance, your white baseboards stick out more! :) Nice job.

Oh, neat, and there seem to have been some pictures stuck inside that paint can too. Wow, the things they come up with.
