Another Day

Well, my mother came over on Memorial Day to help me get some painting done in the condo. Over halfway there. I will post pictures soon. While we were doing this my cousin, who is like a big brother to me, was at the Coca Cola 600 with his driver sitting in first at the rain mom and I started doing our rain dance in hopes that they call it and he would win his first Sprint Cup race...and well it worked! I was so excited for my cousin who is more like a Big Brother to me. Congrats to the Aaron's Dream Machine #00!

Baby Crack!

Ah yes its true...I am on baby crack. Everytime I get an email about a new property being listed in the market we are looking in...I look to see if it is "baby/kid friendly." I however, am not ready for motherhood. I am not one of those women who as soon as they get married, and boom they are ready to be moms. (No offense to anyone of these women, I am in awe of every working mother/stay-at-home mom out there, I am a firm believer moms are SUPERMOM's). But lately, I think since I am nearing 28 and my 10 year high school reunion is in a few months, I feel like I'm behind in my life and need to catch up. (although I am not) I love planning my are some of my ideas...

I absolutely love this crib, its from, it is the Delta Stanford 5-in-1 Convertible Crib

I would want the Extra-Wide Kendall Dresser & Changing Table Topper from Pottery Barn Kids

Next I would like the Cameron 3-Shelf Bookcase also from Pottery Barn Kids, hopefully my children will share my love for books

And no nursey is complete without a rocking chair

As my friends know...I am NOT a pink person...and would not wish it on my child, until they are old enough to decide if they like it or not...but I love my purples and greens and think that the Katie Bedding from Pottery Barn Kids would be perfect

and for a boy the Chase Nursery bedding, also from Pottery Barn Kids

Okay enough baby crack for now!

Angels & Demons

The hubby and I had date night last night. We had dinner at Macado's...he'd never been and has now found a fabulous new eating place. Then we went and watched Angels & Demons. I have to admit, just as good as DaVinci Code...if not better.

I love movies that make you think and question.

Getting the Condo Ready

Well DH and I are getting the condo ready for sale. I am truly excited about this. I am in the process of updating things around the condo and making it more presentable. Next month we will be installing hardwoods.

This past weekend I repainted the Guest Bath Valspar's Woodrow Wilson Presidential White

I replaced the wall plates for the light switch and outlets from the ever-so cheap off white plastic to the shiny silver that matches the faucet

So now...its just a matter of getting to the hardware store to learn how to install tile and I can finish off the Guest Bath.

Our color scheme throughout this is Red, Black and White...we want to keep it cohesive throughout the main living areas so that it will appeal more
