finally

we are finally starting to get this old house painted and fixed up. i think what jump started it was when i told my husband that i'd have another baby(Lord willing) if he painted EVERY single room in the house. i guess it was the right thing to say to get what i wanted. this is shocking, as last year(in a rough, rough time) i told him that not only did i not like him, i would not have anymore children. so there! and now i am eating my words...like usual. you would think i'd have learned by now that you should NEVER use the word NEVER unless you intend on doing what you said you'd never do. my mom told me that. and i said i'd never say stupid things like her. BOOYA.

anyway, i chose a dark grey and we painted the ceiling the same color as well. i wanted the chandi to pop against all the walls. you beautiful thing, show yourself to the world. disregard the dust though...i guess you have to keep these fancy things clean. my sister, audrey, will for sure get tired of the dust all over it and get to cleaning. auj, this is an observation and a request. hint hint.

anyway, i love how the crown molding screams at you now when you walk in the room. glorious. today i told the molding good morning as i was eating breakfas...a chocolate chip cookie. i think i heard it whisper back to me. but that could have been the really drafty windows. either way, i'm happy with the color, although i have no decor up. that will come in due time.

  1. Oh my goodness I love it!

    I randomly threaten that I won't have anymore babies if Jose doesn't (xyz or whatever)and he should perhaps consider giving mommy a weekend away...or diamonds lol(it's not actually the having of the babies that bothers me its the raising that I'm feeling overwhelmed with atm) But that doesn't work because he knows I want more children. So he nods and smiles and does something to appease me (usually puts the boys to bed and then...I'll just say makes me feel better :P)
