Sooooo far behind

2 post in one day, woohoo!!  :)  Last weekend was a really good one and I wanted to share with you all my finds and fun times!  

Friday after work I decided to check out Target's clearance section of Halloween stuff.  I really wanted to pick up some LED Halloween lights for next year.  Lucky me, I found some!!  I also found some cute Halloween hand towels, another cute light up pumpkin, and some cute LED lights shaped like Mummies!

Purple lights: normally $15.00, clearance $7.50
Orange lights: normally, $12.00, clearance $6.00
Orange/white lights: normally, $12.00, clearance $6.00

Mummy lights: normally $9.00, clearance $4.50
Big Pumpkin: normally, $9.00, clearance $4.50

Hand towels: normally $3.00 each, clearance $1.50 each

Andy wanted to go to the store to pick up some "fancy" beers, so being the good wife I am, we went. 
I really am a good wife! :) 

Saturday we were ready for paint on the walls of our basement.  We started with primer.  Holy cow does primer get sucked up into those walls so fast!  I couldn't roll up more than 5 times on the wall with the roller without needing to get more paint!  Andy was impressed that I spent the entire day in the basement with him and his dad painting.  He didn't think I would last very long.  We also made a trip to Lowe's to purchase more paint and painting supplies.  $300 later we walked out the door, but I was happy with our color choices.

Green: bathroom
Gray: the entire room and up the stairs

$300 later!

Saturday night I met up with Ali over at her house for some girl talk.  She had a fire going in her new fancy fireplace and I brought over Starbucks!!  For her, a pumpkin spice latte.  For me, a white chocolate mocha.  The red "Christmassy" cups made the holidays feel even closer!  

Sunday I decided that I needed to get out and go grocery shopping.  I hadn't been on a real grocery shopping trip in several weeks and we were in need.  So I met up with my mama and sister and a shopping we went while Andy and his dad painted some more in the basement.

Andy being silly and said after I took this, "You're putting that on your blog, arn't you"
Yes sir I am!!

Bathroom before color paint

Looking up the stairs.  These will be covered in carpet

Green!!  A sample piece of the floor that will go in also

A dark brown floor, dark brown bathroom cabinets will take this color down a notch

A sample of the grey that will go on the walls

I realize that these colors are very bold, but you have to remember that this is Andy's "man cave" and you need the colors to be dark in order for the projector to project the images clearly.  I am more than thrilled with the progress so far and can't wait to show you all the final product.  :)
