A Wild Hair

OK, so we've had a few "wild hairs" around here lately.

Ollie decided to dress up in 4 different costumes last night after we went to dinner with some friends. He had free ice cream after dinner which apparently turned him into a wild man. Here he is as (I'm not making this up- it's on his name badge on top of the "muscles") "Officer Awesome". Sounds like it might be a little too risque to me for a child's Halloween costume, but they don't ask my opinion about these things. And I'm sure they think the parents will get a kick out of it. The outfit did NOT include a boom box, so I guess I'm okay with it. Henry had some wild hairs, so we just covered them up. (This was playing outside on New Year's Day.)And I decided to paint our breakfast room yesterday. Or just this portion of it. Because I just got one of those little sample cans at Lowe's and now it will probably be a week before I get back to get the real gallon can. I like the color, though. And I think we're going to do a chair rail and wainscoting at the bottom to break up the different bold colors in every room. That was Jason's idea. And I went to design school- if that tells you anything about my designing ability. I'll post the final pics when we get it done. Don't hold your breath.

Post Script: What kind of a friend am I? This color is Deep Cowslip (make up your own definition of what that is here) #5 by Laura Ashley and sold at Lowe's.

Ha! Love that about the paint! I went to design school too, but my husband, the civil engineer, always seems to have the better ideas!

Ha! Loving the costume changes!! How far are your boys apart? Have I already asked you this, it seems as I have. Also, what do you do where you can stay at home and work? And yes, my momma and Bob live on Rampart, 1001. I know exactly where your parents live! And one more thing...you're gonna kill me...do you remember my 8th birthday spend the night party and my daddy's house, we dressed up as Dolly Parton. ;)

Believe me, I am the first to cringe at the thought of 1996 being ancient history...but, come on...it was 13 years ago. Whew...that's not yesterday!!!

I know what you mean about Dick Clark!! Andrew and I said the same thing! Bless his heart, he does need to hang it up. And we agree about the kiss too...that was just gross...

I'd hug you, but this screen makes it a little awkward.
