Moving this weekend = busy!

I have been neglecting my blog (again) and will be continuing to do so for just a little while longer. Since closing on our house last week, we've been busy fixing, paining, shampooing carpets...you know... all those things that go into home-ownership. This weekend will be a whirlwind. Bennett is going to stay with his Aunt and cousins Friday & Saturday so I can be at the house to help with more painting/unpacking.

We realized after spending more time there, that we just weren't that happy with the way the walls were painted, so, we pretty much decided to paint the entire house (except the kitchen and the 4th bedroom). So... needless to say, there is a lot of work to do!

AND I seriously have the best friends in the entire world. My good friends came over to help tape/primer/paint the other day, and it was such a great help. And they are coming back on Friday to help some more. They even happily carried on painting while I was laying on the floor with a leg cramp being totally useless. I love them. I am so blessed to have such amazing people in my life.

I have a guest post scheduled for tomorrow and I will be back next week to check in on all of you lovlies! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :-)

{me and my girls, hard at work...kinda. ha ha}

That was the most fun I've even had painting!  Work like that is always better with friends around.  Your house is wonderful, I look forward to many more "painting/work" parties to get it just how you guys want it.

When we moved, I invited my gal pals over and we had a fun "painting party". We ordered pizza, played music and next thing you know, we had finished painting in no time. :)
