Well, I haven't gotten a whole lot done, but I've gotten enough done.

Tyler's got a BLUE wall in his room. Think bright royal blue......I stripped the wallpaper border off of 2 walls today in his room, and then painted 1 wall blue. Saphire blue paint. need to get another quart to give it a second coat. But he is loving it. The last 2 walls will either be white, a light beige or light grey. Still thinking.....if anyone has any suggestions on the color - SPEAK UP!

I got a 20 foot pole painted white that we are going to hang purple martin birdhouses on.

Tomorrow the kids and I are going to the matinee of Race to Witch Mountain. Jessie wanted to watch the Hannah Montana movie, but Tyler didn't want to watch a girly movie.

I'm so glad I have 3 more days before going to work again. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Have a great evening!

Wow, that would be a fun room to see. Blue is a good color. Sorry no suggestions on colors. I'm sure you will pick out a great color. Have a great night!!

Reading your blog makes me want to take a nap. Whew. You sure have a lot of irons in the fire.

I am looking forward to pictures of Tyler's room.

Wow - you sure achieved a lot! Enjoy the movie with the kids - we hope to see a few over the school holiday period too!To make the feature wall stand and add some light to the room I would team it with a white or off white shade. I hope you post some pics of the finished room :)

I was thinking, "Did she previously mention she was painting Tyler's room?" You're amazing! A matinee is exactly what you deserve...just a couple of quiet hours with your children to sit and totally enjoy yourself. Have a GREAT day!

love the light gray idea...wouldn't be so stark as white and wouldn't show as much dirt either (my boys could slime a wall in an instant!) have a happy easter.

Ooo, sapphire blue. Sounds lovely. I'm thinking dove gray or tan- actually a pale yellow would be lovely. I'm sure you will come up with something stunning.
Have a happy Easter!
