Whew! What a Weekend.

Ok, so I have decided that the only issue with this blogging thing is that you all now expect me to update it!!! AHHHH!!!! We've had a very long weekend- good- but long and keeping up with the blog lately has seemed so difficult. As you can see from the pictures on the side (that haven't been updated in over a week), I haven't been able to change things up much recently.

This weekend was our first weekend where we really didn't have a lot of plans. Well, you all know how that goes- no plans means plenty of time for NEW projects. And, as I usually do, I picked the LARGEST project to start (and also one that HAD to be finished in a timely fashion). We painted our entire family room this last weekend. For those of you who don't know, this also includes the dining room and spans majority of our downstairs living space. Anyhow, after late nights this weekend and tons of rearranging furniture, Scott and I were able to complete the project. The color came out a lot darker than we originally wanted, but we LOVE it. I think it definitely makes the room seem more cozy. You can check out the pics and judge for yourself (just don't tell me if you don't like it!!).

This weekend Harbin also attended a birthday party for one of Scott's co-workers children. It was a Transformers birthday party held at Jumping Jelly Beans down in Peachtree City. This is one of those places where they have tons of blow up jump houses and slides and obstacle courses. I thought that Harbin wouldn't enjoy himself as much as the other kids because he has never been all that comfortable on the trampoline (he will only jump if everyone is sitting down). Boy, was I WRONG! Scott climbed in there with him and the first time had to go down the slide with him. After that, he just took off on his own and had the best time ever. He was so tired after an hour and a half of jumping he just burst into tears when we told him it was time to go eat cake and then go home!!!

We were able to squeeze in some football this weekend. The Vols weren't on local TV, so we all loaded up and headed to Applebee's to watch the game. Everyone thought we were so cute in our matching Tennessee outfits (sorry no pic yet, but I'll get one before the season is over).

Well, stay tuned for more updates as the week goes on. This week and weekend should be less hectic, so maybe I will be able to catch up!!

I like the living room, even though it does look a little too tennessee-ish for my taste. Next time, go with a bright red!

They claim that red rooms invoke anger.

like the color!

Hmmm - anger, huh?? I find red rooms to be more energizing than angry. But if you don't like that suggestion, how about black?
Oh, and I'm requesting pictures of the corn maze on the blog :)
