I laugh.

I was just looking back on some of my old house posts, and I laugh at the number of times I promised pictures and never delivered. I'm pretty sure 0% of the three of you who read my blog care, but I just found it funny. I might deliver after this weekend, but I absolutely make no promises this time. Our last "bigger" project was the half bath, which we painted and added a new faucet, mirror, TP holder, towel ring and light fixture. Last weekend, we finally hung the shelf above the toilet and got a white cabinet for the odd empty space. We don't really have anything that needs storage in there (maybe some extra TP and reading material and matches... haha), but I needed something to fill that space. My goal this weekend is to hang some pictures and finally truly finish it. We are also tackling the stair "repair" (remember that?) and painting the dining room. And by we, I mean I'm doing the stairs, and Matt is painting the dining room. He actually demanded I pick a color so he could have something to do on the weekends since it's been cold and he doesn't have yard work... dormant grass and trees that have already shed all of their leaves = cabin fever. And, I'm not doing the test 1,000,000 colors again, so I'm going to go with the color Centsational Girl used in her office (Valspar's Seafoam Storm), and pray it's not too dark since our dining room doesn't get as much light. Just another crazy weekend in the crazy lives of Matt and Kristin!

By the way, I've decided that MLK Day is my favorite holiday, because it's the only time I get off work and don't have anything to do (it seems every other holiday from work is busy with parties or travel or something). I'm heading down to the suburbs to hang with my BFF on her birthday and just do whatever. No agenda. I love it.

In all honesty, it is fun just hearing about the projects you are working on. Pictures or not, home improvements are exciting!
