bedroom before & better (not quite finished yet...just better)

when i first moved into my condo {pre-DT} i loved having a dark warm color in the bedroom. alexandria beige to be exact from benjamin moore . now that years have passed. it's time for a brighter color. it took almost 4 gallons of kilz to cover up that brown! good thing it was on sale at home depot this weekend. that was a lot. i will think longer before painting such a dark room. it was fun while it lasted!
we painted the ceiling, doors & trim too.
looks so good. really makes the color on the walls look richer.
new carpet & spray painted hardware.
love it & hope you do too!

sneak peak

we have lots going on in cedar lakes these days.
here is a sneak peak of some craziness.
the full before & after on monday.

what have we been doing lately you ask?

Photobucket
from l to r
flowers from hermitage.
blowing leftover bubbles from ben & rae's wedding. while waiting for the bridge to open.
sleeping.
oh sammy. trying to conquer macy's bone
more flowers from hermitage
day off from work...hit the beach
at a wedding where goats were among the company
mom's last day here...at the beach of course

pool time.

we love summer. summer loves us. d & i met at the pool so we have some seriously good times there.
d loves to dive into the deepend {strictly prohibited!} and he does this cock-eyed dive.
its become a signature dive, if you will.
anywho. yesterday we darted over to the pool to get some much needed relaxation after work and believe it or not. i captured the dive on my iphone. {hence the not so perfect photo}
yes, ladies and gents, young and old. you will all be able to witness this perfect dive form.
shall we?

new website

sorry to gab about pampered chef again but i do have some exciting news to share.
i've earned myself a little website! {woo hoo!}
so excited to see some orders come through & also help hosts get the word out for parties
check it out.
book a party.
get a goodie.
enjoy!

mom is back...well at least till june 12th

i love having my mom here! dad couldn't come this time. {we miss you dad!} now that mom & dad live so far away...when they do come to visit the time together is so sweet. and since mom is here longer than a weekend its nice to just relax and not feel like you have to do everything in a day. i must say there is some delicious food at the house. cookies, tasty dinners, homemade by my sweet momma. love it!

on a different note. these past few weeks i've been really challenged about praying. whenever i'm slackin in an area i feel like God shows me that through a ton of different things, conversations, readings, people...i mean everywhere i'm bombarded with it. that's good though. i need bombardment to get my attention sometimes. i always hated the idea of scheduling prayer time. but i schedule things that are important to me so i need to schedule prayer time. not like a time clock but in a way where it is a priority. i think that's important. so i'm embracing that. i'll keep you posted...

enjoy this lovely weekend!
xoxo
