One Good Project Always Leads to Another....

Today was a VERY productive day over in Grizaland! I checked off some major To Do's:
  • Called BCBS and expressed my hatred toward them and how much baby Griza is gonna cost!
  • Had the windshield in my Bubs car replaced cause it was CRACKED for like EVA and I am quicker to handle things than he is.
  • Moved the curtains from the living room into the dining room
  • Met with Jennifer of GroutHaus Design for some consulting. Stay tuned for the results!
Basically, after painting the nursery the perfect shade of green and loving it, we realized when you looked down the hallway into that room the contrast of that green and the hallway color was pretty dang obnoxious and made the nursery look kind of Frog green, and not Griza Green.
So then I needed a paint color for the hallway. The hallway touches EVERY room in the downstairs so I needed a color that complimented each room and it was NOT EASY...... enter GroutHaus.
When I show you all the end result, you will likely be shocked cause I'm not gonna lie, I didn't know what to think about this color till it was on the walls, and now Bubs and I both love it. The thing with color ( and design), you have to remember most average humans don't know about this stuff, and thinking you do, is like all those fools that try out for American Idol and *insist* that they sound great and should be famous ( while we all roll our eyes at home) ... I knew after all her hard work on our kitchen renovation that she has impeccable taste so I am not scared to trust her, and it always ends up benefiting me in the long run!

(*Natosha I can send you a card if you want for your new house**)
We spent the afternoon painting and getting the "step one" of our hallway done. I will post more pics later but for now, a little hallway history:


When we first moved in:

My family came to town and helped me style it a little:
Then I finally found some runner rugs at heaven on earth TJMAXX....

Then some color testing:
and one heck of a cute painter/good sport/husband face:
Now just WAIT till you guys see what GroutHaus does with this space ! It's excitin.. like so exciting I cant wait to get up tomorrow!

Babies are cool, and expensive.
My windshield was cracked for 7 years, my next drive is going to be so clear and amazing.
Paint really changes a room.. The hallway is looking sooo good.
My hair looks pretty curly and cool from the back. ;-)

Sorry I didn't tell you we were coming to TN. I was kind of helping with the shower and wasn't sure how much time we were going to have. I am totally regreting it. Has it been since ML's wedding? I'm an idiot!

You have to be the most productive person I know! I can't even find the time/energy to paint a second coat in my bathroom, and you practically paint the whole first floor in a week!
