Been so busy lately, I'd forgotten to write my blog in here, so now it's catch-up time. Saturday was my sister's wedding reception, we were over there decorating, dancing, all the fun things. She and her husband, Todd, were married in Las Vegas (she surprised him with a trip out there and then got married. After 28 years of being together and 2 kids, she thought it was about time.) with their 2 kids and their gf's, and a woman my sister works with (who volunteered herself to be the maid of honor).
Sara and Todd's "dance":
Decorated room (a banner I'd made for them):
Head table (the pics are the wedding pictures enlarged, taken in Vegas):
Flowers I had to make on the spur of the moment (first time working with real flowers):
Then Sunday we were back over to our daughter's house helping her paint some more. The rooms are nearly done; downstairs needed a second coat on the hall yet, and 2 upstairs bedrooms needed the darker end walls done, otherwise that's it. I'm not sure about the bathroom upstairs, if they were doing that or not. They have to replace the sink and bathtub up there, so I'm thinking they just primed that one.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and an even better today.

Got the master bedroom done, have the kitchen and front bedroom first coated, have the living room done, have the entryway done, so we're doing very well, I think. The front bedroom and kitchen just need a second coat, then they'll be doing the hallway and the downstairs will be done. We have 3 or 4 rooms upstairs to do, and the hallway there, so hopefully it'll go quickly, the rooms upstairs are smaller than the ones downstairs. Then it's moving time. Brande figured we could paint while my husband (her dad) and Dan's Dad (both named Rick) move furniture, along with Dan. I think it looks gorgeous, so far.
So I'm going to be away quite a bit, have a wedding reception tomorrow night (my sisters), and the moving/painting to finish. Have a great weekend.

Back off to painting yet another room, this time the kitchen/entryway. Yesterday we did the living room and it looks great, plus we puttied every hole there was...one room had 45 holes to putty. I swear the woman who lived there put something up everywhere, it's insane.
Anyway, have a great day, one of these days I'll get back to writing longer posts.

I'll be heading back over to our daughter and her boyfriend's house to finish priming and begin painting. I'm hoping we get it done today, because Thursday it's supposed to get hot out, again (before heading waaaaaayyyy low, weird weather).
Anyway, yesterday must have been some kind of workout, my body is sore. *L* I hope you all have a great day, and hopefully one of these upcoming months I'll be able to post more, everywhere.

Heading out to prime/paint our daughters house, inside, it's cool weather so that's great, rather that than the heat.
Sorry this is so short, maybe I can update it later, but I need to hurry, I think I'm late. :D
Have a great day, and never stop!
