Monday Already!


boy, the weekend just flew by! can't say that i accomplished all that much either! saturday was gloomy. lauren's soccer game was cancelled and we spent the day inside. terry arrived home from his week long trip away and we spent much of the evening catching up with dad. i did manage to whip up these 2 layouts. the one of terry and the girls isn't the best picture but terry is so "anti-pose for pictures" that i have to pretty much use whatever i can get! i love the background of the photo. we were in downtown st. louis and the buildings in the background are framed in by the arch. (you have to look close but there is an "r" in the word girls....it's hard to see w/ the brown)
speaking of brown....gonna buy me some brown chocolate paint today! yum! terry and i have been toying with the idea of painting our one wall (fireplace wall) in the living room a dark brown....i looked through my pile of swatches and found a brown we both liked and i'm just going to go for it. the fireplace surround is an off-white and it's a little chunky so i think the brown is either going to look great or we'll hate it. which would mean i would just have to paint over it, again! my other thought was a "burnt red"....not bright scarlet red and not maroon...something in between...so we'll see how the brown goes. it's just paint, right! the easiest way to make a huge difference in a room! i'll keep you posted!
not sure what's on the menu for the week. lauren has her last day of swimming on tues. she's pretty excited about it....they have a huge water slide and fountains etc...and i guess the last day of class they turn all of that on and let the kids play. i signed her up for more classes but they won't start until june. it's hard to believe this will be her last month of preschool too! april flew by! have a great week! hugs....

Very cute! Love them! I also like the idea of the chocolate wall! I'm sure it will look great! I have a few walls I wanted to get painted also, hopefully will get started on that sometime soon. Its hard to beleive this school year is just about over and Lauren will start kindergarten next fall, wow! We're getting old!

I can't believe this. I set out to get some ideas on my new site.. you know themes, color, layout, etc.... and I can't believe how much stuff I've found looking around. I'm liking some of the stuff I see here... some good ideas at least. I'm not sure if I want to go with normal blue underlined links or if I want an entire theme of colors for all of the text and the links too. Anyway, nice page, it gave me something to chew on. If anyone actually sees this and feels like it, you can check out my site. electric fireplace
