I'm still here

March has been a CRAZY month! I have hosted 8 Party Wishes parties, 5 of them were Mad Hatter parties :) I am Sheridan's Brownie leader and we have been selling cookies outside of WalMart and the troop visited a vet and went to a scrapbook store to do some page layouts of the past year's activities.
We have had dance classes, baseball practice and games, Boy and Girl Scout meetings, PTA meetings (I'm in charge of Women in History at the elementary school), orthodontic appointments, speeches and presentations for Cleopatra biography (3rd grade) and Chasen was in a class play about Geology.
Unfortunately, I am just skimming the surface here!
As you can see, my blog has been on the back burner for 2 weeks and now you know why.
From the picture above you can tell that Chasen decided to break his arm because not EVERY moment of the day was not taken up with some type of activity.

During all of this fun we have been having, I am in the middle of re-decorating my family room and adjoining kitchen. At present, it is done in green walls, Waverly Old Country Roses slipcovers and red toile window coverings. Since the cushions were a bit worn on the couch that triggered me to design a whole new room. Above is my "plan". We are purchasing a white slipcovered IKEA sectional with an extra slipcover, I bought a new rug from Land of Nod and I am making new curtains for both rooms and all of the accent pillows. I have also re-painted my kitchen table and chairs and stapled on a new oilcloth blue with white polka dot tablecloth. I will also be painting the walls blue.

I am also going to paint the kitchen cabinets bright white (they are cream now) and the island Fire Engine red (it is now Barn red). I also replaced all 3 of my chandeliers with new ones that I painted bright white and had adorned with Cath Kidston tea cups and a tea pot.

I hope to be done by next week to show you what I have been up to.

Now, I am off to get things organized for our garage sale this weekend. I am having a special "preview sale" for friends on Friday night so they get first dips on the "good stuff".

Wow! You are one busy little bee. How lucky your friends getting to have first dibs on your good garage sale stuff. I'm sure it's all good so maybe you won't even have to have the garage sale!

Sounds like your Alice party is a big hit with the release of the movie huh? It is such a great party! What other ones did you have?


Sure hope your boy heals quickly!

Hugs,
Joanne
