Happy New Year to Everyone!!
We partied at my parents house and had a wonderful time. Molly was barely awake when the ball dropped, and Annie was WIDE awake...she ate the whole bowl of candy mints! It was a fun night with family and friends, there were a few pregnancy announcements...Ha- yeah and it wasn't ME this time! A family friend is to become a grandma for the first time. Another family friend is due to have her second child in July- their first son wore a shirt that read (on the front...) Santa's getting me something for Christmas (on the back...) A new baby girl or boy in July. This was a cute announcement and reminded me of how we told everyone about Lolo. Actually this would be a fun thing to post sometime, we tend to try and be creative with our announcements. So anyways...our resolutions for the year, the typical lose weight (yuck) eat healthier (double yuck) and paint (yeah!) We started our painting resolution yesterday and got the first coat of paint on in the living room. We have been trying to get this room done for a year now, it will be nice to finally be finished. With an old house it's never as easy as slapping some paint on the wall. First we had to replace the light, which took some finagling. We also put up a ceiling medallion around the light, painted the ceiling, which of course had some cracks that needed patching and sanding. The previous owners painted right over the wallpaper...so we did too! If we pull it down some of the plaster will come with it. So I actually have to admit to taking out the hot glue gun and gluing some loose corners back down! Guilty! We decided on the Pottery Barn yellow. It is a nice warm color, so if you are looking for a yellow this is a great one! Benjamin Moore has all the Pottery Barn colors, it's nice because it's a good paint and great colors. So this morning- after our LATE NIGHT (2 am with kids) we are up and painting.
Wish us luck! Where's my coffee? :)
