No more waiting

I think this is the first movie in years (and years and years) that I have really had any interest in seeing RIGHT AWAY. 

And it’s out!!!  image

However, since I do have some sanity in place I am not going to see this until Wednesday. 

Can’t wait!

Here is (finally) a picture of the picture I hung up in the dining room:

IMG_9896 We took the picture down a week or so ago to paint the dining room (same color, just needed a fresh coat).  So now this picture is sitting on my dining table, waiting to be re-hung. 

And speaking of dining tables, we got a new one:


We also got a coffee and console table for the living room:


(sorry about the mess, but we live here).


Have a great Tuesday!!

Project 52: March Update

     I'm still debating if I want to get one.
2) Stop buying so much stuff.
3) Make homemade crock-pot applesauce.
4) Read 30 books (6/30).

      Hannah and I had a girls night last weekend.
11) Schedule regular date nights with my husband.
      I need to schedule a few, but we are going shopping together this weekend without the kids and we will have to eat, so I guess that counts as a date?

      *Going to go look at furniture this weekend!! 
13) Get a new dining room table and buffet.
See #12.

15) Make something crafty, not food related.
16) Plant a small vegetable garden.
17) Take the kids camping.
