With that kind of title, you’d think I partied all weekend. Well, I did, but not like really partying.
My husband turned 36 this weekend and we had friends come and stay with us. I also threw him a little surprise party on Saturday night. He was completely surprised and loved every minute of it. You see, my hubby is an extreme extrovert. He LOVES people, is always wanting to invite people over and has never met a stranger. I, on the other hand, am very much an introvert. I feel rejuvenated by being left alone. 🙂 We compliment each other – a lot. So, a surprise party is so up his alley. And it stresses me out to the max. So it took me a couple days to recover.
I used Shanty 2 Chic’s printable alphabet banner letters for the pendant banner on the wall. It was so easy and perfect for a guy’s party.
And I made another cookie cake, which was delicious.
And then Sunday our friends left town and we had a dinner with my husband’s side of the family. After we got home I climbed into my PJ’s and sat in front of the TV watching the Oscars. It was lovely.
I was planning on having a low-key Monday, but I woke up in a panic because I forgot to finish getting my clothes ready for a consignment sale this week. The clothes had to be dropped off by 1. So, I spent the morning ironing, hanging and pinning on tags. It wasn’t what I’d hoped for, but we dropped the clothes off with time to spare. Yay!
I’m finally feeling back to normal today. And last night I picked up 7 gallons of paint: 5 gray and 2 white. What do you think I’m tackling next?? The whole open area in my home: living room, entry way and two hallways. Oh, and board and batten. 🙂
I’m thinking I’ll wait on buying/making built in shelves in the living room for now. I’ll just do the board and batten treatment and we’ll figure out built ins later on. I’m ready to have my house painted the color I want!
I can’t wait to show some progress pics of the new gray walls. I am sure it will take me a while to get it all painted. I’ll just do a little at a time.
I hope you’re having a great week!!
