Meal Plan Monday: September 16-22

Where did the weekend go? I spent mine working on my new blog! I’m switching to a self-hosted blog soon, and have spent a great deal of time learning enough html code to get into the CSS editor and switch some things up. It still isn’t perfect, so I’m not ready to reveal it yet. But I’m changing blog names, and am very excited about what is on the horizon!

I also spent a good chunk of time painting the living room gray. Well, kind of. We started painting it last weekend, only to discover the paint color we chose didn’t look right after it covered 2 entire walls instead of one little chunk in the testing area. After borrowing a gray from another friend and testing a patch, we decided on the new color. Still needed is a second coat, painting the dining room a darker gray, and painting the baseboards and ceiling white. In less than two weeks.

Why in less than 2 weeks? Because little miss G will soon be 1! We’re having a birthday party and need the place to be presentable. Hopefully without all the furniture in the center of the room too!

We also attended my nieces birthday party. I attempted to get a shot of the 3 little ladies. “Look at Aunt Leila,” didn’t work as well as we hoped.

Oh well!
