Sick, Sick, and Project Time!

I had a witty "Five Things" prepared two Friday's ago.  Grandpa Bill had arrived to watch the kids so I could play catch up and as I was about to sit down to type Lauren started burning up.  12 hours later her fever broke, but mine started and lasted 48!
Because the weekend was a total bust, I spent a lot of last week playing catch up while trying to move full steam ahead with our project timeline.

William and Lauren have been sharing a room and we decided it was time to give them their own space, but to do so we are moving a whole lot of things around.  The biggest part of our project is our new room.  Billy and I prepped the room last Monday so my mom and I could paint while Lauren was at school.  William slept most of the morning, so  Grandma and I got busy!

I'm so happy with the results.  
Love, love, love the color!

I may have tried to do a little too much because I was up half of Tuesday night itching.  I woke up covered in hives.  Yep, hives.  I've never had an allergic reaction in my life, and the cause is still a mystery.  I rested up the rest of the week and got the house back in order so I could hit the ground running for the weekend.  We had a good mix of playing with the kids and getting stuff done.  Plus, the kids even overnighted at Grandma and Grandpa's for no reason.  Billy and I just had a party to go to, no event, just a date!  
We enjoyed just being at home with some cocktails and conversation®.

We ended the weekend with a little DIY project!  Here is a sneak peak because it isn't completely done, but Billy and I made an upholstered headboard with nailhead trim.  I plan to post a little tutorial when its all complete!

Hope everyone has a good week!
