Great Weekend....

This weekend was an awesome weekend. Saturday was perfect weather! We decided to start our morning at the Farmers Market. They had so much fruit and veggies to sell! Here is John buying apples. We left after spending only $3. It was nice...
After the market we moved on to a very nice neighborhood in downtown Indianapolis. They were having a HUGE garage sell. It was about 20 or so houses. Anyway, we wan to turn our wine room into a sitting room with a tv to watch movies. We just needed a TV stand. We found one and the lady sold it to us for $5. I already have the paint I'm going to use on it! After that we went to Lowe's and needed to pick out a color. We are over getting sample paint and never making up our minds. So this time we decided to pick a color and get a gallon. Scary I know but it was time.
At Lowe's we finally agreed on blue. He wanted dark and I wanted light. We compromised somewhere in the middle and picked out about 4 colors. A name on one of the samples was called "Adventure". I said we should go with that one because this was totally an adventure for us. Anyway, we went home and painted and we LOVE LOVE LOVE the color! It's perfect. Of course you have to see it to appreciate it but here's the color. I'll have another picture when the room is finished.

So it's pretty much officially fall. It makes me very sad but there isn't much I can do about it. I hate what coming next. Tomorrow is the first day of fall, but the leaves have already started falling. *sigh* Soon it will be winter :(

Anyway, we had an awesome weekend and I'm looking forward to going to Louisiana Friday night!!!

This and That

I haven't blogged in awhile. Last weekend we went to Charleston to visit mom and Keith. We had a great time! We shopped, ate, went to the beach, and just hung out. It was a lot of fun. It was a short trip but we got a lot done and got to visit. I can't wait to go back! My next trek is to Louisiana for 2 days. My trips are very short but I'm taking advantage of my days off during the week.

Our 4 day week was fine. Work was long and tiring but Friday finally came. John and I put an ad on Craig's List to be dog walkers. It's for a little extra spending money. We got 2 calls and we are now officially dog walkers. It's mostly letting them out to potty for about 20 minutes a day M-TH. John will be doing most of it because of my work schedule, but I will be able to help. These 2 jobs equal to a couple hundred extra dollars a month! It's nice with Christmas around the corner!
Yesterday was September 11th. At school I had my class make American flags. Time goes so fast, I can't believe it was 8 years ago.

This weekend is full of cleaning. Today we de-cluttered the guest room and office. I can't believe how big these rooms really are. We had tubs of pilot manuals that went to the garage and boxes on top of boxes of recycling and trash. It's nice to see how open the rooms look. Next weekend we will be painting the "wine" room downstairs that will also be a second guest room when needed. That's about all! Have a great week!
