Hello Monday! Last week in January! How is that even possible?? But I will take it! Just one more week closer to spring! So what did we do this weekend? I am so glad you ask!
I started Friday at a conference out-of-town. See:
Looks exciting right? Actually those chairs were very comfy. Have you ever been to a conference and the chairs are just horrible? By the end of the day your back-end is begging for you to get up and walk around? Oh I hate that. These chairs were nice. And the topic wasn’t so bad either, I was learning all about planning for bicycles. You know, infrastructure, programs… the life of an urban planner.
Here are a few more from the conference.
I even came home with a certificate…that didn’t have the right date on it, but a certificate nonetheless.
But it was good to get home to my little monkeys!
Saturday we started removing wallpaper from the entry way and dining room.
It came down easy. But we found some interesting issues under the wallpaper in the entryway. It seems that wallpaper has been removed here before. But not all the wallpaper was removed, and then they painted over it. So we have some bumpy wall issues going on in there – that we need to fix. Ug.
Here is what the new color of paint is going to look like. (the gray)
Sunday we stopped at Dimitri’s office for a minute after church. He has toys in his office, the boys think that is very cool. They like to visit Daddy’s office.
Back at home…we taped the woodwork and filled nail holes in the hallway. Prepping for painting, which won’t happen until next weekend.
And then baths for the kids.
Oh wait… those were just pictures from my iPhone. I actually did get out my DSLR a few times this weekend.
Silly Girl. She is wearing a mini-mouse costume dress that she is in love with! She wears it over her clothes all the time. She likes to dance and twirl while wearing it. The banana sticker and the messy face? Well I think that just adds to the look.
Papa came over for dinner on Saturday night.
And Yia Yia and Pappou stopped by on Saturday night too.
We get crazy on Saturday night around here! Can’t you tell?
Sunday was gloomy and lots of rain (thankfully not ice!) around here. The reflection of the trees in the puddle in our driveway.
I was able to finish Week 3 of my 2013 Project Life. So stop back on Tuesday to check it out. Here is a sneak peek taken with my iPhone:
And now here it is Monday! I hope you have a great week!
