I should be an interior designer :) Hehe

I haven't unloaded my pictures off of my camera onto my computer but I took a picture of my Snapperbets piece by Bent Creek on my phone. So here is the progress I have made so far.

Anyway... I started school this week. :( This will be my last full semester of classes I only have three this summer and one in the fall and I will graduate in December. The bad thing about this semester is that on Wednesdays I have to drive to Va Beach to class at Old Dominion University. I usually take satellite classes, but they don't offer a class that I needed. Well Va Beach is two hours away from where I live, so I drove two hours to school and then two hours back after my three hour class. Wheeew.. I'm wore out!

Since I have been back from my vacation me and my boyfriend have been doing some re-modeling of our house. Let me start from the beginning.... about six months ago I begged and begged for my boyfriend to let me paint the walls because every single one in the house is white. White is fine but very boring if there is nothing hanging on them. Well... on our way back from vacation he looked at me and said "Do you want to paint the house when we get back?" and I looked at him like there was a punch line. I said, "any color I want?" and he said "yep" I almost had a heart attack. I went to walmart the day after we go back and grabbed one of every paint color strips. I picked out one color for the living room and one for our dinning room, there are joined by an arch way. I picked out a pink, purple, grayish color. I know it sounds weird but there is no other way to describe it. We both decided on the second color which was a grayish blue. He got the paint the same day and now both of the rooms, and the trim have two fresh coats of paint on them. And next week the hardwood floors get sanded and re varnished. We live in a very old house that overlooks the water, it is very sturdy and in better shape them some new ones around here but the floors have not been re-done since they built the house and they had them covered with carpet!!!!! Who covers hardwood floors with carpet. When I get done the house will look like something out of a magazine. My boyfriend doesn't know what he got himself into, once he told me I could paint, he lost all control. :) He will thank me in the end hehe!

Until tomorrow,

love snapperbets!! Would you please convince my DH that our walls also need painting?!?!? That adobe white (whatever off white this is) just doesn't work anymore. I am trying and i think i might just go buy the paint. hehe
It's not like we don't have enough people in the house to do teh painting, we have 3 teens still living at home.
