Weekend Re-Cap

Is it Friday yet?  You know your tired when on Monday your already wishing for Friday. 

I had a great weekend and got quite a few things done.  Saturday was my alone time day.  Every Saturday my husband watches the kids so I can clear my head, drink some Starbucks, and shop- A-LONE, no kids screaming “I want this” “I need that”.  I of course went to HomeGoods, then a stop over at Hobby Lobby for some drapery liner, Home Depot for spay paint (of course), and Sherwin Williams.  

I tackled painting my daughters room yesterday- here’s a sneak peak (with the camera phone-sorry).  Its SW Waterscape- I first had it tinted at only 50%, but it was too light so I went back and got it full strength.  It looks really light in this photo, but is actually a bit darker.  I hope to install the drapery today, add some finishing touches and show you the afters next week.

I also got some new fabric samples in and I am trying them out as possible trim for the dining room drapes.

And I also finally watched Breaking Dawn- I know, I know!  

I didnt go see it in the theater.  Hubby watched the previous ones with me but finally had enough and told me he couldn’t bare watching another one- so I waited till it come out on DVD.  I have to admit I thought the first 20 min or so were cheesy, but it got MUCH better after that.

  1. Ha! Those stops were my exact same stops on Saturday! I’d look no further for trim, the greek key is perfect!

    Love the wall color you chose for your daughter’s room, so soothing. Loving your fabric samples as well, great patterns. I too am ready for Friday, as we traveled again (3rd time this month) this past weekend.

  3. Sounds like a pretty good weekend. Don’t you love being productive. This morning was hard for me too! I think my legs are still sore from skiing and I’m not ready to face everything that needs to get done this week!

  4. Oh my goodness, I feel the same way today! It didn’t help that I stayed up late to watch the Oscars.

    Love the trims that you’re looking at. I’ve been thinking of doing the same to my dining room drapes. Are you using fabric or trim?

    Good luck this week. It will be Friday before you know it!

    Sounds like a great weekend. Love the color in your daughter’s room.

  7. You are so lucky you have every Saturday free. I need to talk to my husband about this….It is so nice just to have some alone time. I would have spent my day the same way you spent yours! The paint color looks so pretty and calming! I like the twilight series too but my husband isn’t into them either..
