365 Project 2015: Day 8
Wednesday night I did a Pure Romance party for some close friends. It was an absolute BLAST! Between my demo and their hilarious input, we kept each other laughing the entire night. My face actually hurt from laughing when I got home. I walked in the door, walked upstairs, collapsed on the bed and thought about how lucky I am to get paid to have girls nights out! This is the good kind of tired!
The excitement of the night before left me pretty tired the next day. I went to an aerial class, came home to Nate making a yummy dinner and we went to bed a little earlier than usual.
It started snowing Friday afternoon and into the evening. I love snow on the weekends! We awoke to a winter wonderland on Saturday morning. We got around 5 inches – definitely the most snow we’ve seen this winter.
I woke up early yesterday to get on top of some of the things on my to do list. Nate went with me to the post office to ship out a few Pure Romance orders. I worked on some of my business related to-do’s when we got home and filled out our bill/important date calendar for February. We met my Mother-in-law a little bit later at Babies R US to pick up the crib we ordered last weekend (she has a large vehicle)! While we were there we ran across a Graco Pack and Play that was on clearance. They gave us an extra 30% off since it was a floor model – it is *so* nice and in perfect condition. In total, we spent $30 on our crib and pack and play combined due to using gift cards and coupons! I can’t complain about that! A bit later we went back out to buy Nate a new pair of shoes and to pick out some paint for the nursery. I kept going back and forth on what I wanted to do – statement wall, no statement wall? I haven’t picked out bedding yet but I know the general color scheme I’m going for. So after browsing Pinterest for a bit in the car I decided on a swatch, walked in Home Depot, and asked them to mix it up! No standing around in the paint section for a year.
Nate painted the first coat last night and I am IN LOVE with it. The Behre paint that we always get has a primer already in it, but I was really skeptical about a light color going over a super dark color without a lot of effort. Uh – this stuff is amazing. Two coats will be perfect! We definitely bought too much of the paint in preparation for 3 or 4 coats – so we’ll be using that second can in both of our upstairs bathrooms! It’s the perfect neutral color and it really brightens everything up!
I did a little bit of cleaning and a little bit of relaxing with my iPad while Nate painted. Pure Romance has a new section to their consultant online office called “Party School”, which basically walks you through exactly how to be the best consultant you can be. I get points based on the sections completed and I’ll get free stuff for completing them – so I spent about an hour laying in bed with my iPad attending Party School/watching videos! It was funny because whenever I sat my iPad on my stomach, baby boy would KICK it and send it popping off my stomach a bit. Such strong kicks from such a little guy!
