Before and After Dining Room

   
 We moved in our house seven years ago.  I had our dining room painted red right after that.  I have loved it, but I had gotten tired of it.   A couple of weeks ago, I had our dining room painted "Hopsack" by Sherwin Williams.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.  ( I realize that I need a bigger picture on the wall.)

I also had our island painted and distressed.  I would love to have the whole kitchen painted like this, but it is way too expensive.

Laurie, how about using a BIG mirror on that wall to reflect the lighting over the table. Love the color!

This looks really good, I love the wall color. My kitchen is red, so I know the red can be a little much at times. But, I'm loving this color and I like your island distrssed.

The island looks great! I'd be saving up to hav all the cabinets done. It might be expensive, but it looks it which means it's likely worth every Penny!

Laurie. The room looks great. Another very cheap way to spice of the room is to recover the chair cushions. You can get cheap material at Hob Lob and a staple gun. so easy and a great way to put color in a room. Nice job!!

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
