Well, it finally happened. Yesterday afternoon, my Mom and I decided to tackle painting the dining room. After months of staring at faded wallpaper and a gallon of blue paint collecting dust on the floor, it was time. Each stroke of paint covered up years of outdated floral designs. We left the wallpaper underneath because ain't nobody got time for ripping it out. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out though. I can't seem to keep my eyes off of this area of the house now. There are just a few more places to touch-up and it'll be done.
I had a few friends over for dinner last night. Bowls of spicy chili, funny games, glasses of moscato + caramel apple mixed drinks, s'mores around the fire pit and lots of laughter (of course). It wasn't as cold outside as I had hoped it would be. But, then again, this is Florida. I won't hold my breath for cold weather, because obviously I would die. Despite that, it was really fun. I should start hosting girls nights at our place more often.
