1. I had a birthday.
I turned 32 on Friday. In this stage of life, birthdays pass by in a blur, a busy day among every other busy day... But it was good - and special "luve" notes like this one from Micah made it extra special :)
2. I painted. A lot.
The kitchen project isn't quite finished yet. But it's getting close!
And on a side note, I totally sucked Erik into the painting vortex (just as I predicted!).
More pictures will come, but here's a glimpse of how it's been going:
After painting the backsplash in the blue-green colour I had chosen, I didn't like it at all and thought it looked pretty tacky. So, I painted over it with an ivory to match the cabinets. I'm still planning to paint the other walls in the blue-green but haven't felt totally happy with the colour choice. Anyway... I'll have to devote a whole separate post to that once it's all complete!
3. I pulled out the potty.
Let's just say a certain little boy is getting over his fear of the potty and a certain mommy is getting over her chronic procrastination... There has been no success yet, but there also hasn't been much time devoted to this. Hopefully soon I can put my energy towards this next endeavour...
Maybe when the painting is done.
4. I ate turkey.
We hosted the Toews family Thanksgiving dinner at the farm on Sunday night where we all squeezed into our sunroom-slash-dining-room for turkey and stuffing and pumpkin pie. And then we ended off with a bonfire to enjoy the rest of a warm fall evening. The perfect kind of evening where the grown-ups visit around the fire while the kids run around the yard, chasing cats in the barn and trampoline-jumping under the stars, and claiming they're not tired enough to go to bed even when 9 pm rolls around... Which makes us all thankful for holiday Monday to recover :)
Hope the rest of you enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving weekend!
