This and that on a Monday

March 28, 2011

Happy Monday! It's time for a random post for sure. It seems like Monday always comes to quickly....I have all of the projects I want to work on over the weekend but I blink and it's over. This weekend the husband participated in a 26 mile bike race...and shaved 6 minutes off of his time from last year! It was really cold on race day, so I chickened out and stayed home partially to keep warm and partially so that I could go look at counter tops for our bathroom.

And what did I do instead? Cleaned the house and went shopping. Oops.

And thanks to Molly and her quick work in photoshop, I now have an idea of what our bathroom will look like when it's finished. Thanks Molly! And thank you to everyone who offered advice and opinions about our redo. My husband now realizes that a black/dark counter top would be awful...and I owe it all to you guys!

In other news, the husband and I were lured into buying some cookies from some pretty sweet little Girl Scouts. How can you resist yummy cookies and the adorable little girls selling them? It's a trap. We haven't opened either box because we know once we do, they'll be gone.

We also went out to dinner for date night. It was so yummy. The husband got all romantic and made me a flower/heart out of his muscle shells (is that what they're called?). It was a flower of all the things I hate: seafood, onions, and croutons. Thanks hunny.

How was your weekend?

  1. Some of the daughters of fellow teachers around my school have bombarded me with Girl Scout cookies...I have finally had to say NO!! Politely of course! If I am even within sight of a box of G.S. cookies, I am in big trouble.

  2. So romantic... I " heart" it! And girl scout cookies are the devil. I finally outsmarted them- I only buy peanut butter ones so I can't eat any (thank you nut allergy!)..

  3. Whoa I am SUPER impressed by the photoshop job! Heck, I need someone to do my whole house like that! I am horrible at seeing things in my head. I see nothing.

  4. That was with photoshop?! Wow! I need some lessons! I hate croutons too...I thought I was the only one. My family loves when I order a sald because they know they can have them all! Happy Monday!

  10. Ha! The girl scouts get me everytime!! Luckily, I've figured out that in Austin you can buy cookies for the troops and they will send them for you. So I've figured out how to support them AND my waist line! And I love, love what your bathroom will look like!! How fun that you get a sneak peak thanks to photoshop!
