August 29 : You Can’t Always Get What You Want
But if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need. (::name that tune for bonus points!::)
1. I left the house tonight to return a movie. After bickering about my irresponsibility related to Redbox rentals. I can admit it – it’s not a deal if I use a code for 1 night free rental, but keep it for 3 nights. Oops. So I went out to return it and I was going to get ice cream on the way home. But I turned a corner and I was greeted by the most insane hot pink sun. So I rushed home to grab my camera and rushed back out, shooting out the window.
The whole drive was at most 20 minutes. But there’s something about ending a weekend and starting a week knowing that the kids are in bed, chasing a sunset, windows rolled down, hair whipping in the window, Simon and Garfunkel on the radio. It felt fantastic.
2. The kitchen is PAINTED. HALLE-FREAKiNG-LUJAH!!! It’s a bit darker/brighter than I thought it would be and so similar to the kids’ room that we had to laugh at buying a can of paint when we had another. I love the color and I’m the one who gets to look at it 95% of the time. I’ll be posting pictures at some point in the future, but it still has a good bit left before it’s ready for a reveal. We still have half of a kitchen worth of cabinets to paint and hang and I haven’t even begun to figure out small details or artwork. But it’s coming together – YAY!
3. Because I just can’t resist. Found the link to these fantastic number and alphabet poster downloads via Simple Kids and had to share them. So adorable and just what we were needing to add to either the kids’ room or the currently-a-work-in-progress basement playroom project!
4. Last thing. I love 3 year olds taking pictures:
