Making progress...

Mitch's birthday was Sunday (the 8th) and when I asked him what he wanted to do for his special day he said, "I want to paint Scarlett's room." So, paint we did! Our house is 85 years old, so the walls are a little high maintenance. They are plaster... they crack really easily and seem to suck paint down as if they have not had a drink in the last century! The walls in the guest room were blue (the only room in the house we had not painted since we moved in), so we had to be extra careful to get good coverage with our paint (called, Possibly Pink) so that in the end it did not appear as a purply pink. We definitely made progress. We stayed up until 1:30 a.m. on Saturday painting! Woowee! Actually, I cannot take much credit... Callie and I ended up plopping down in the chair in the living room around midnight. We were exhausted. There are some finishing touches to make, but then we will officially have our girl's room painted!

  1. I have to admit the first thing I thought of when you told us you were expecting was the nursery! You definitely have a gift for decorating and I absolutely can not wait to see all the elements of the nursery come together! It will be such a sweet and special place for her to come home to!
