Long Winded!?!?

OH MY!! I got online today and noticed how LONG yesterdays post was!! For those who read it - BLESS YOU! I owe you a beverage (the one you probably consumed while reading it!) Well, let's hope these pics make up for it! :)

My lovely stools which I adore. Geoff has promised I can get the next 2 this week! They were expecting some this weekend. I LOVE Potato Barn and think they are pretty reasonably priced. We love their beds, couches, tables, etc. I'm not real keen on everything - especially their entertainment centers. I feel those are not as sturdy as they should be. So we purchased ours from Timberpoint Furniture. This is a fun store too! They have raw wood furniture and then you can pick out your finish. We chose this red but now we want to find a professional to paint or stain it black. Anyone know of someone who does this? We also want to paint the mantel to match.

(Don't you just love the missing door on the bottom? My kids thought it would be fun to hang on it while looking for a movie. It's being repaired. UG!)

The yard is so fun! Still have to decide on the daisy trees. What do you think? Plant in the ground or pot? I can't wait to get the pavers down so my students have a place to sit! We are growing to LOVE our little yard and enjoy the time out front with neighbors and friends! It is the prime spot for many a game of anything (baseball or football) these days!!

The carpets are done and look great! Amazing how nice it is under your feet when it's clean. Even under the couches had dirt that I could not believe!! Geoff has decided whether spotted or not - we should make this a bi-annual thing. Then it won't be so bad in between! Kinda like emptying/rotating your 55-gal water barrels around General Conf. Now we'll also clean the carpets. We'll see how long this idea lasts! But for now, we'll just lie around and enjoy the clean carpets!

Last night I went and auditioned for a show. I won't mention which one until I hear if I made it or not. :) Although I'm unsure if they found enough Asian-decent actors in the valley to cast the majority of the roles. There's your hint! They are to call in the next day or two. I'll keep you posted!

I'm tired and ready to nap but must teach a few lessons, do a few loads of laundry, etc. Oh! And figure out something for dinner. Anyone else dread this like I do? I really need to get on the ball and work on my list again. It's been 2 weeks and I can't find the time to sit and work on it. Need my menu and grocery list done!! Any volunteers? :)

Love the pics! it is so fun to watch the boys out in your yard playing ball...and the girls sprawled out in the sun reading or doing whatever!

My vote for the daisy tree is in a big pretty pot - if I were to put it in the ground, I know I would not be watering it as I should...a pot tends to remind me, hey, that needs water!

Love the pictures! I love the stools, your bench, and your RED entertainment center! And you have color on the walls- I'm so jealous! It's so fun to see your house and yard!
