Drum Roll, Please...

Are you sitting down?

No, really. Are you? If you aren't, then sit. Now.











Seriously. You need to sit down.














Are you ready?













I finished painting my living room.

















It's true!! Look at the lovely white trim, the door, which was previously primer gray and my beautiful Nutmeg Brown walls! It took me three entire evenings of staying up until one and two o'clock in the morning, but the peace I feel when I enter my living room is well worth it. It's the first time in the eight years I have lived here that my living room has been entirely painted. I even hung up the window toppers I bought on clearance in December. It's coming together to make a nice, little room.

You didn't think I'd do it, did you?

Of course, the rest of my house had to suffer:















But you'd just be jealous if every room in my house looked great. It's okay. I like to do my part to make everyone else feel better about themselves. Keeps me humble.

Party at my house tonight to celebrate.

Of course, you have to stay in the living room.

well done. Room looks grand, and dirty dishes are nothing. Those get done every day. Not often a project as ambitious as the living room happens.

Beautiful room supermom. I just love the color. I have a thing for colorful walls. White to me is just #1 too stark and #2 very boring.

KUDOS for a job well done.
