A Week in our Life: Sunday

Second day in a row I slept in until 10 am.  This time I woke up to breakfast in bed.  Bacon, fried egg, sourdough french toast with maple syrup and orange juice.  I ♥ my husband!  Up, shower, a little computer time... out the door to finish running errands.  Back on the phone.  Headset dead, sitting at a red signal, CHP pulls up right next to me.  Sees me on cell phone.  Ticket.  My lucky day!  I swear, Brian could be on the cell, driving 80 in a 55 and still not get a ticket.  I'm at a red light, NOT MOVING, headset is dead and I get a ticket.  At least it doesn't give me a point and increase my insurance.  Finally get to Target... the last few little things for Florida!

Over to Home Depot.... paint selecting time!  Now that we finally agree on a color scheme, I stopped by to pick up a few shades to test. 

Also got the two shades of paint we are considering for our master bedroom.  Head over to Costco.... photo order to pick up, the usual purchase of tortillas, bread, chicken and balsamic vinegar.  A cute outfit for my nephew's birthday gift in a few weeks and an awesome veggie gardening book.  And finally quick stop at Office Depot before heading home for a replacement ruler (mine went missing on my trip to Anaheim in January and I've been missing it terribly!).

Tested the new paint colors with Brian, easy decision:
We chose the yellow on the left, Honey Bear, as the main color for the house.  The dark blue, Mood Indigo, as the shutter/door color/porch railing color.  The dark brown, Centaur, as the garage door color.  And finally, there are two whites on top of the yellow if you look closely.  The right-hand side, Linen White is almost the same shade as our existing paint!  And the left-hand side is Polar Bear and we chose that as the trim color.   Original idea came from here:

And yes, we've been drooling over all the house plans!  It's always fun to look at house plans (not to build them out of toothpicks though, right Megan?! lol)

And here:

Photo from here.  Where the inspiration came from for the garage door color.

So here's what the house will look like when it's done according to home depot:

And according to photoshop skills (in a hurry):

A little time chatting with our neighbors about home improvement projects.  ♥ our neighbors!  Kicking back on the couch, snuggling with the puppy and hanging out.  Getting ready to head to bed after a dinner of Brian's stew.

Forgot to add to yesterday night the drama with the dog!  The cats peed on her stuffed toys and she reeked of it.  Poor baby.  Three baths later, she still smelled like it.  Finally put a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water on her face to neutralize the smell.  It kinda worked.... figured I would have to let it sit to really get the smell out.  She was traumatized and I sent her to bed with Brian.  She did wake up this morning with no smell.... both the kitty and vinegar smell were gone.  whew.  Dang cats!

Going to watch Amazing Race and call it a night!  A short work week this week, then vacation!  Looking forward to taking a break. So glad I made it through the entire project of week in the life.  Now it's time to condense into a mini album... if I get my act together, maybe I'll be able to pull it together in the next week!
