This week, I started the project of painting our master bedroom. We didn’t necessarily need to repaint the perfectly fine khaki-colored walls, but when we removed some less than attractive metal shelves that the previous owners had installed, we found that they had also painted the walls 2 different colors underneath said shelves. Of course they didn’t leave the current paint behind, so repainting the room was the only solution. We chose a light grey to coordinate with the fabulous FREE curtains I scored from my brother and SIL’s new house (they were left by their previous owners). ย I’m slowly but surely making my way to the end, one sore hand and arm at a time.

We had lots of fun friend time this weekend, including one of the only pool days we’ve gotten all summer. It was glorious, except for the sunburns. What can I say — we haven’t been out in the sun all summer long. We were also invited to a big group dinner at Local Three in honor of our friend’s birthday, and it was delicious as always. I highly recommend.

Sunday was the busiest — a bridal shower for our friend Courtney, and a cookout with my Springbluff friends and their husbands/boyfriends/kiddies. We get together once a month for dinner with just the girls, so it was fun to finally include everyone else. Cookouts and get-togethers sure have changed over the years, but I have to say they’re much more entertaining with little ones at the dinner table.

Here’s to a great week ahead, and an even better weekend — we’re having a party for my 30th birthday! yay!
