I really do get a kick out of saying Merry Christmas for the first couple of weeks after Thanksgiving...Especially when I get a snarl in response. Some people just don't get the Christmas spirit as soon as we do around here I guess.
Carlie and I met Fooseberry and her Mom Mary Ann with Foosebery's girls Olivia and Ava at Mahoney's this morning for pictures with Santa! Carlie had a little problem sitting in Santa's lap and it definitely shows in the picture...she looks HORRIFIED.
After that, Carlie and I stopped at Sherwin Williams so that I can finally pick out a paint color for our bathroom, bu I couldn't decide and came home for some inspiration and advice. A year or so ago I came up with the brilliant idea to paint our bathroom a grayish purple. I went to the store and bought the paint and brought it home and SLAPPED it up in the bathroom. WELL..... It wasn't exactly the color I thought it would be. It was more like a grape purple....and the walls needed prep.....and my husband was ready to kill me because it looked awful...I mean BAAAAD....And we've lived with it like that ever since. In the meantime, we developed this mildew problem. So between the terrible grape paint job, there was this mildew issue going on as well. NOT PRETTY. 2 weeks ago we decided enough was enough and my husband stripped the whole bathroom, sanded fixed,filled holes...and primed the whole room white. I found this adorable shower curtain pink with little white daisies with yellow centers that I just bought on Overstock. So after consulting with my decorating advisor I have decided to keep the bathroom white and just do pink and maybe yellow accents... maybe even freehand a few of those daisies here and there on the walls. Were putting up shelving and hopefully organizing our lives alittle bit finally. At least it will look nice for the holidays, I expect my husbands family on Christmas eve. so...MERRY CHRISTMAS!
