Friday we decided that we would show my mom how we do yard sales. We drove all over and found a few good treasures. We came home in the early afternoon and Blaiden was in the middle of his nap. My mom was tired from traveling and the time change so she also decided to take a nap. I took down the wall paper in the kitchen while the house was quiet. When everyone woke up we took the wall paper down in Blaiden's room. That night we just hung out and played until Blaiden went to bed. After that my mom and I got started on organizing and deep cleaning the kitchen.
Saturday was the big day. We went to Lowe's to buy all our paint. They had great no VOC options. I must say that picking colors is so hard. I ended up buying 7 gallons of paint!! We came home and forgot we had to finish up the kitchen before we started to paint. We started in the kitchen (I really wanted this room done). I picked a green color and I love how it turned out. That's all the work we got done today because I had to get ready for dinner. The hospital had a graduation for the residence that were finishing and also to welcome the new residents. This was the first time that anyone besides me has put Blaiden to bed. I know this sounds crazy but he nursed until he was 13 months and then we did sleep training and got into a very structured routuine and it was me who he wanted to put him to bed. I was very worried about it but it went fine. Dinner was also very good and we had a great night out.

The Kitchen After
Sunday Blaiden and I went to church with my mom and then came home and let Blaiden take a nap. After he woke up we got to work on his room (the next important room that I wanted to be finished). It was really easy to paint even though we had to do 2 coats. In the middle of painting my mom said she was going to quit if I didn't go get some candy, so i had to make a quick run to the store to keep her motivated. We took a break to eat dinner and play with Blaiden until he went to bed then we decided we better paint the living room which then I added the entry way too. It was a long day and we were both ready for bed.
Blaiden's room after (I forgot to take pictures of the before)
Monday we still had more painting to do. We did the "dining" room, which we don't really use for "dining" and the hallway, we also had to touch up the living room and put a second coat in the entry way. This was a hard day of painting. We were both so tired of painting and the dining room was our hardest room. There was a wall that went down the stairs to the basement and trying to all the way up to the ceiling was very difficult. After we were done we just wanted to relax and go to bed early.
