Out with Friends

The past few weeks have included lots of fun with friends!

On Dec 2nd we celebrated Lyndsey's birthday with an amazing dinner at 801 Steak and Chop and then carried on to the Quaff- too much fun and too many cocktails! But so worth every minute.

Last week Lyndsey, Allison and myself attended "An Acoustic Christmas" concert benefiting the Salvation Army at VooDoo Lounge... artists included: Rodney Atkins, Josh Gracin, Chuck Wicks and Sunny Sweeney.... with that line up and us girls- you couldn't ask for a better time! We bought a round of shots for the band, were tossed the mic to sing along with Rodney Atkins and had an all around FABULOUS TIME!

and here are a few pix....

In a few months I will have reached 2 years in my current apartment... and I love it... and don't forsee any reason why I won't renew when the time comes. That being said- I am a person who loves to decorate- or at least make my place nice! So- with the help of my best friend, and most talented artist, Emma- we picked out some paint colors for my kitchen and bathroom- being that they are small rooms - and an easy start!

So- I started with the kitchen- I bought the paint on a Tuesday after work and taped, painted and cleaned that very same night- while watching Glee and making dinner!
Here are the photos of "Sweet Maple" in the kitchen:

Next came the bathroom... that took place this past Saturday...and let me be perfectly frank... I HATE painting bathrooms! There are so many darn nooks, crannies and weird spots to paint... and I did this all without a ladder.... needless to say, I was super frustrated by the and and now have some ceiling touch up to do!! However- I LOVE it now- looks super awesome.

Its kind of crazy how much paint can change a room...I'm very pleased with my handy work...and ready to tackle another room or 2!

Life Happened...

So- here it is- the apology!
I'm sorry- to all of my followers (mom!) - its been awhile. I got busy! I guess traveling home for Thanksgiving- which was AWESOME- an entire week away from work and alarm clocks - has left me delinquent in my posting.
I have several random photos to post and a few from Thanksgiving as well- I will get there- I promise!

I have been having lots of fun- since I returned home from Thanksgiving- I have painted my kitchen, celebrated Lyndsey's birthday too hard, spent a great day with Emma and Molly, done lots of work, nearly completed Christmas shopping, decorated apartment, gift wrapped every present, organized closets, tore apart bedroom closet and organized and even watched a movie! YIKES! I was pretty worthless last night- I admit it - I went home after work- made dinner and crashed. I guess I was wore out!

This week seems to be equally as busy- a fun concert, visit with friends for birthdays/celebrations and on call again this weekend. I hope to paint the bathroom - oh April!

Also- this is a good time to congratulate my friend Lyndsey- her amazing company went live with their website yesterday and its my sincere hope you check it out!
