After eating lunch with my mom & dad, my mom and I went to Menard's to look at more flowers. I ended up with two more Columbines and a roll of chicken wire to finish off my veggie garden. We also bought some chalkboard paint for Landon's room and for the playroom at mom & dad's house.
Then we went to mom & dad's house to drop mom off and pick up the boys. Before we left, everybody sang Happy Birthday to me and we had some delicious cupcakes!
Supper at my mother-in-laws house was yummy and entertaining as always. My in-laws are slightly insane, so it's always fun there!
Saturday was quite productive. I had picked up the two sets of drawers that used to be part of my grandma's vanity. They're just the right size for night tables for the boys, and I got one painted to match Taylor's dresser.
Do you remember my bench that dad made? I repainted it. I found the color I wanted (a vintage green), but didn't feel like paying for a whole gallon of paint. One quart wouldn't have been enough, and two quarts would have cost the same as a gallon. Lucky for me, I found some spray paint that was the exact shade I wanted! For $15, I was able to buy 1 can of spray primer, and 3 cans of spray paint in the color I wanted, which is about $5 cheaper than the gallon! Now I just need to get a couple of pillows, and maybe a throw blanket made for the bench, and get some flowers to plant in my buckets, and we'll be good to go!
I gave up my sewing room so that Landon could have a room of his own, and I started painting that on Saturday, too. I don't know what this shade of blue is called, but I really like it. I found it on the rejected paint shelf at Wal-Mart when I was looking for my spray paint. I'm hoping to finish his room today so I can finish moving his stuff in.
My parents came out about 1/2 an hour after I started painting Landon's room (which would be why I didn't finish), and we got my garden planted! Next year, I'm definitely going bigger.
I promise to get some photos posted this week once I get Landon's room done and Taylor's room rearranged!
