Anyone that has been in our house knows that the main level has a really open floor plan so I was hoping to use my painting to help distinguish a difference between the two rooms. I'm pretty sure that it is mission accomplished. Although Charly keeps telling me that the two colors don't match, I think it looks great! You can see the edge on the right of the pciture. It's more green than the picture really shows. I'd take a picture of the rest of the room but the kids broke the big mirror on the opposite wall from this the other day so it looks incomplete. My painting for now is done. I haven't decided for the master bed and bath, the nursery and main bath.

The mice will play.....(insert evil laugh) hehehehe!!!
Every year for the last few years the guys (Jason, his dad, brothers, brothers in law and sometimes uncles) have taken a few days every summer to head up to Minnesota to fish. In past years all of us girls left behind have gotten together to go horseback riding but this year it rained and we had little girls that couldn't go so we didn't do that. I will sheepishly admit that I always feel kind of jipped. Where's my kid free week every year? But this year Carter go to go and it was so amazingly quiet and easy with just the three girls that them being gone actually was a break for me. We ended up doing all kinds of things. And it did make it a little bit sweeter that Jason came home from work early on Tuesday and told me to get dressed because we were going on a date. Suprize date ended up being whacking some balls at the range (which I probably haven't done in years) and some great Chinese food at a local place. My wonderful sis in law Jenny was great to pop in at the last minute to babysit.
On Wednesday we went around running errands. I did a search for free stuff on Craigslist and was just a little too slow on getting a free piano and free unused matresses. Kind of a bummer but if anyone would like to get rid of a piano or matress let me know :). So instead of going to pick those things up we went to Home Depot to get paint, then to the salon to get haircuts from the lovely Lindsay Sprague, then to the YMCA pool to wash things off and finally finished it of with some McDonald's for dinner.
That night I painted Charly and Caelyn's room. We moved Caelyn's bed to Carissa's room and Charly slept in my bed and I got this done while they were sleeping.
