yesterday-- we painted. We did light blue on a wall in the new 'office.'

and the same light blue on the wall right when you walk into the house

and I painted the back of the shelves blue too. I was going to do wall paper, but I tried to look for some and had no luck. Painting was a pain, and I'm hoping that once the shelves have stuff on them, it hides the many unavoidable mistakes I made.

and upstairs in the bonus room we painted a wall navy. This room will be a work in progress for a while because we don't have furniture. but once it's done it'll be cool :)

i'll take some better 'after' shots in a couple days when the house is put back together. Yesterday turned from painting one wall into painting three and some shelves. So it was a long day with crazy kids and paint fumes so things didn't get put back together.

Yesterday was also my ten year high school reunion. How crazy is that? I obviously didn't go, since Michigan is REALLY far away. But kind of crazy that I've been out of high school for ten years. My best friend from high school called me yesterday though-- which was just as good as going to the reunion since she's the only one I really would have wanted to see. We haven't talked for years, so it was cool to hear her voice. I'm sure my 20 year reunion will be here before I know it. maybe I'll go to that one :)

Looks great! 10 years :-) It's been 16 for me, now that's depressing!
