I finally got around to taking pics of the kids completed room. I didn't take another pic of their Ikea flower and star lights since I already posted that one a while back. I absolutely LOVE their room now.

Not a single photo but a really great time

Yesterday my hubby didn't have to work so we decided to do something together. After going through hell and back to find a sitter my best friend came directly after she got off work and babysat for us. THANK YOU TONI!!! I LOVE YOU GIRL!!!

So where did we go? A fancy restaurant? A movie? Nope none of those. We went to the country to shoot our handguns. Three hours and over 500 rounds between the two of us and we packed up and went to dinner. Hubby insisted we stop and try a sushi place and I was completely grossed out. But we ate there anyway and let me tell you it was fantastic. We ordered California rolls with crab and shrimp. SO good. There are 12 of them in our fridge right now waiting to be eaten. It was a fantastic day. Just me and hubs out in the woods. Very relaxing and a perfect stress reliever.

And I must say that my aim was pretty darn good. I even hit a glass bottle dead on towards the end. Yea me! It was the most fun we have had together in a long time. :):)

We finally finished the kids room today. I couldn't be happier! The photos aren't capturing how beautiful the walls are but believe me it is a fantastic blue. I haven't gotten any really great photos yet since the kids are home but I will do it when they go back to school on Monday.

I was browsing Flickr a few weeks ago and came across the idea to use Ikea spice racks as bookshelves so I bought three of them and each of the kids have one above their beds. They turned out so cute. Here is the boys bed and I will take photos of the rest of the room very soon.

Next stop on my mission to paint every room in this house....the bathroom.

It is a pretty big bummer when you have about a half hour more painting to go in a room and you run out of paint. It is an even bigger bummer when the paint you bought does not come in anything smaller than a gallon size. But the biggest bummer yet is when that gallon of paint costs $33.99.

Thankfully I love the color enough that I can paint my bathroom with the leftover.

Family Movie Night

Last night hubby came home late after a job and handed me a Willy Wonka chocolate bar from Walgreens. He then told me that we were going to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. My response was not too pleasant. You see I had never seen the movie and there was a reason for that. I DIDN'T WANT TO. But he insisted.

The kids were supposed to be asleep already but Makayla was still up so I told her she could come in the living room with us since it was Spring Break. Shortly after Macie woke up and wanted to come in.

So we made it a no notice family movie night. The girls had a blast and loved it. As for me I did NOT like the movie. But it was fun to watch it as a family. Even Limo got in on the family movie watching. He laid on Macie and me most of the time.
