Painting and a Few Phone Pics

This week my project was painting the kitchen. With some help from a few friends it's now complete. I finally have my red kitchen! I've wanted a red kitchen for as long as Ronny and I have been married. I'm so happy with the way the color turned out. I'm not sure I'm going to keep the vases there, I love them and so I'm stalling on taking them down but I think it is too much with them in front of the red paint. Up next, hadware for the cabinets and tiling the island then moving on to the kids bathroom. 

These are a few pictures off my phone. I love these little guys!

And after a fun filled summer day this is usually how they end up. 
They are so peaceful when they're like this :)

A Busy Start to Summer

Things have been a  little busy around here the past few weeks. I'm finally getting around to starting all my projects around the house. We have been in this house for a year and a half and I still feel like I have so much I need/want to do to the house. It is a never ending project! I started with painting the kids rooms. Now that I'm done with that I can finish getting their furniture and finish with the decor. Next, I'm going to work on their bathroom and painting the kitchen. I took a few pictures during the painting but haven't taken any after pictures. 

The kids went to a friends house to play the other day and I had 3 hours of uninterrupted time. I decided to do something for myself, something I wanted to do instead of something I had to do. So, I scrapbooked. It felt so good! It was like seeing an old friend again after a long time apart. I'm so behind on scrapbooking that I've actually skipped a few years just to make it easier to catch up and even doing that I'm just now in May of last year. I just scrapbooked Madison's birth. But, I was able to work on it and it made me realize how much I want to set aside time to continue to do something just for me. 

This weekend I was able to squeeze in two girls nights out! I'm not sure how that happened, other than I have the best husband in the world :) Friday night, a good friend called last minute and we decided to do dinner and drinks. Saturday night my sister and I went to the Tim McGraw & Kenny Chesney concert. Oh, it was fun! It was a great concert, so good I woke up Sunday with no voice, lol!

I've also tried to squeeze in some quality time with the kids by themselves. My parents watched Madison one afternoon so I could take Mason to see Madagascar and Mason hung out with Ronny one day so I could spend time with Madison. I love spending time with each of them alone. I think they like it too, Mason has already asked me when we are going to the movies again :)
