Weekend Rewind

Where did this weekend go?!? We weren't incredibly busy, but our plans were all over the place so time has flown by!

Hubby's dad flew into town on Friday for some father/son time with Hubby. For the past several years, they have participated in a father/son golf tourney at Lake of the Ozarks. The tournament didn't technically start until today, so that meant we got some great quality time with my father-in-law the past couple of days. We had dinner on Friday night at our favorite local upscale Chinese restaurant--wow, I haven't been that full in a long time! We spent the rest of the evening just hanging out--I pretty much fell asleep fairly early in the evening in the recliner!

Saturday morning I had to work & Hubby had class. We didn't do much of anything Saturday afternoon except work around the house. My one task to help prepare for this golf tournament involves making a batch of chocolate chip cookies to have on hand--I'm always more than happy to oblige! We met up with Hubby's sister, brother-in-law, & nephews for dinner & then headed back to their house for the rest of the night. It was a great evening full of family!

I was a hooligan & skipped out on church this morning to spend more time with Hubby & my father-in-law. They were leaving for the tournament about the time that church was starting so I simply took advantage of the live web streaming that our church offers. I was able to listen to the praise & worship time along with a bit of the message before meeting up with my parents for lunch.

The other reason for staying at home was my home improvement project for the next couple of days. I've been wanting to redo our master bath for quite some time but I've never been able to decide on a color scheme that I felt complimented our master bedroom well enough. We had some money set back for the project & I finally made it a priority to complete....and what better time then when Hubby is out of town. I decided on a pale, but bright, green for the paint with chocolate brown & white for the accents. I was able to complete the painting today & tomorrow night I'm headed out for new towels, rugs & accessories to finish the job.

I'm super thrilled with the paint color & since I chose to only paint two of the bathroom walls, the project went fairly fast. I even had time to load up Bogey & have some quality time at my parents' pool this afternoon. I just finished up the touch ups--why is it that no matter how hard you try, paint always seems to seep under the painters' tape?!? I did use a new kind called FrogTape & it worked a lot better than the traditional blue stuff, but I still had some places to touchup in the corners.

I'll show before & after photos probably on Tuesday, I can't wait for the finished project!

I realllly need to redo our master bath. Its lacking something major. I cant wait to see your pics! Our master bedroom is chocolate brown and right now our bath is a very light brown or taupe but it is really boring and there are still no decorations! Can't wait to see what you came up with and hopefully give me some much needed inspiration!
