Saturday we got up early to clear out the living room, Ashlyn's room, and what was the play room to get the carpets cleaned.
The play room has now taken over our basement so we can work on Ashlyn's new room. So, we need to make some changes down there to accommodate the 2 year old. *sigh* anyone interested in a solid wood marble top bar that is in perfect condition? So sad to get rid of it but we could use the space.. and the money... so... I plan to post on craigslist here in the next week or so. Boo.
After the carpets were all cleaned Steve, Ash, and I headed to Ace to get some supplies to start stripping wallpaper and for me to re-finish what will be Ashlyn's new dresser. Right now it is a terrible orange stain color but it is going to be a pale purple with a fun Martha Stewart stencil on the front of the drawers. I am super excited to see how it turns out!
Once we dropped off our supplies Ash and I went to pickup Kesh and Bella to go to lunch and see Finding Nemo 3D.
This is pre-movie. Please ignore the glistening around the mouth. We might have gotten a little overzealous with Bella's lip gloss! Seriously, by the end of the day it was all over both of their faces, nails, legs... apparently now it is called "entire body gloss".
Nemo in 3D is pretty fantastic. I love the movie anyway but it was really neat in 3D. Highly recommended! Ashlyn apparently wasn't all the impressed because she chose to sleep through most of the movie. Oh well, made it less stressful for me =)
Sunday I decided to start stripping the wallpaper in Ashlyn's new big girl room. Ugh! I have now entered wallpaper Hell! Seriously! I worked on it for probably 6 hours yesterday and I do not have a single wall done! Kill me now! Seriously!
I did have some pretty cute help though...
This is the before shot.... we will see how long it takes to get to the after.... by the way it is going, it might be done by the time that Ashlyn graduates college!
