Something old, Something new
Spring has hit and we have been outside a lot. Saturday morning we had an impromptu garage sale with a friend Michele. They have a huge driveway and live in a great area for a garage sale so we kind of invited ourselves to join in the fun. Don headed over at the crack of dawn and I brought the boys once they woke up.
Lots of playing, laughing and over $400 later, it was time to bring to kids home and put them down for a nap. Don and I took our newly earned money and had a night out on the town. After googling for patio dining in Las Vegas we came up with a few and finally decided on Maggianos. HOLY cow this place is awesome! Definitely our new favorite place. Patio dining is really dining outside of the Fashion Show mall, overlooking the strip (sirens and motorcycles included) but it was nice and the noise helped keep it real. :) The food was delicious and the prices were really reasonable.
Home Depot was having a paint sale this weekend so we used more of the garage sale money towards primer, paint and glaze. I need to get on the quilts and figure out what exactly is the look I am going for.
Yesterday after the boys woke up from their naps we started taking apart the cribs to move them into the guest room during the painting. Before we accomplished too much, we remembered to take a before picture. The boys loved helping Don reassemble the cribs in the guest room and we are pleased that it has been a very easy transition for them. But after being up until almost midnight last night, I will be thankful when the painting is done!
