Long Weekend

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!  Ours was jam-packed.  We looked at some potential new houses (we're rapidly outgrowing our current living space and are hoping to find a new place to move into at some point next year).  It was also fun to see our realtor--she is expecting her first kid (a boy!) and so  we had a great time catching up with her.

We also got our downstairs painted at the end of last week.  We haven't decided yet whether we are going to rent or sell our current place, but we did know for sure that our downstairs needed a sprucing up.  So we painted it a lovely sage green color.  I need to post some pictures, but I have no idea where my camera is (thanks, Bug!).  Anyway, it really makes the trim pop and it accents our wooden floors perfectly.  So happy with it:)  I had painters come and do the downstairs because (a) our wall for our stairwell is very high and I couldn't have done it on my own and (b) I had a Living Social deal.  I love Living Social:)  My next project is going to be painting the boys' room.  It is currently Winnie-the-Pooh themed but Bug and Cat are both really into the Thomas trains, and so I am going to paint the walls a nice light blue--and I figure I'll probably have enough paint leftover to do the same for their room in the new house.  Even though the new house will have enough bedrooms for both of them, I want them to keep sharing a room (at least, for now) because Bug needs somebody in the room with him.  It's so funny how different they are--or maybe it's just because Bug has slept in my bed forever--because Cat can sleep happily in his crib all night long, and I usually have Bug join me at some point during the evening.  I am hoping that as Cat gets older, perhaps they can share a bed if Bug gets lonely.

I was busy this weekend as well--I cleaned out my closet some more (hooray for Freecycle!).  I also got a pedicure, which was really nice--I hadn't gotten one since before we went to Florida and, uh, let's just say my feet needed some help.  Yup.  I actually had a really nice weekend--some of my girlfriends and I went to the Melting Pot for dinner Friday night (and can I just say that I pretty much rolled out of there?).  The only thing that was kind of rough is both boys are congested--Bug I think because of the changing of the seasons, and Cat because the relentless onslaught of teeth is just driving the poor little dude crazy.

Anyway, I am going to go off now in pursuit of my phone--I haven't seen it in a couple hours and am starting to get anxious.  I sincerely hope Bug didn't throw it out.
