What an excellent movie...

House Stuff...

We spent the weekend doing what seemed like a million different things. We managed to dig up some sod and plants a few plants as part of our front yard makeover. Maybe we will finish that this weekend...I am really sore though from diging and planting though.

Then I decided I wanted to finish painting our bathroom. I had picked a different color for the small room where the actually toilet is, a deep purple to complement the gray lightish purple bathroom part. So it is a really small space and so I decided we didn't need a gallon , so I bought a quart. Well, we are painting away and Eric asks me if I think the walls seems strange and I do....turns out, the builders never actually painted the room, just sprayed on the paint (1 coat-flat) over the drywall so it is just dry. Well, that meant it just soaked up the quart. Couldn't even finish one coat with it. So I had to go out and buy another. Stupid little cans...the two cans are costing me more then it would have cost to buy the gallon to begin with. :)

I am also testing a different color for the main part of the house, a more green then gold color. But that project will come at a much later time.

If we finish the yard this weekend, I will post pictures...and maybe we will get some chairs for the porch too!!! We only bought ones for the deck so far.

The Games

A few weeks ago, Eric and I were extremely fortunate to get some tickets (Thanks Tyler) to the first round NCAA tourny. Of course, we were excited since Arkansas was playing and so was UNC. The first games of UNC vs Mount St. Mary's was a blowout and not very exciting but the Indiana vs Arkansas game was great and we ended up winning! Unfortunately, that meant playing UNC in the next round. Yeah. The first game that day was the Davidson vs Georgetown game and wow, that was amazing. The entire arena in powder blue was rooting for Davidson (since they are in Carolina), and the student section was great. And then I watched Arkansas get blown out by UNC which was embarrasing. Just terrible.

Anyway, here are a few pics!

And here is us at the game after it was over...

I was driving in to work yesterday morning and heard a report on the radio for the worst cities this year for allergies and here is the list:

1. Lexington, Ky.
2. Greensboro, N.C.
3. Johnson City, Tenn.
4. Augusta, Ga.
5. Jackson, Miss.

Hmmm.... for those of you that don't know we basically living in Greensboro, and this is basically where I work too. Yeah for allergy season!!!

So, we got the camera cord back and here are a few pictures of the rooms we have "done". The guest room and the guest bathroom:

We painted our bathroom this past weekend a nice lavender shade. I had picked out a more lavender/gray but it definitely looks more lavender on the wall. After we get some towels to match (I am thinking dark plum) I will post a couple more pics.

Our goal has been to do some landscaping but the weather has not quite cooperated. Maybe this weekend, we'll see. We have also tested out a few rocking chairs for the porch but haven't found ones we like. So our porch is still bare. We might end up with comfy wicker chairs instead, who knows.

Our couch is suppose to come in sometime in April, and we think we have picked a color for the downstairs-a really light yellow/green/tan color. Maybe I will get to that this summer when I have some more time. :)
