This and That Thursday!

Recently Roached

I'm tired THIS Thursday. I smell (sleeping is better than showers). And I may or may not have gray splotches all over my legs right now. I look like a baby whale with the chicken pox. (When I asked for my pasty skin to have some color, THAT wasn't what I had in mind.)

I think I have carpal tunnel from all the painting we did last night. Boy howdy, tie me down and hit me with THIS bag of ice cause my fingers are barking. We decided to coat the entire downstairs with the beautiful gray we picked out, even the kitchen. THAT's great. And not painstakingly not-so great. Because now, we have so much to do. It's never ending, I tell you, like Kim Kardashian's buns.

Just call me the boring, bland Picasso.

We did, however, break a mirror last night (on purpose), so I'm not sure THAT the next 7 years will be donuts and rainbows for the Roaches.

I'm so looking forward to THIS Monday, even though I will have terrifying memories. Praise the Lord for holidays. I plan to celebrate MLK day by expressing my freedom to eat whatever I want in my fridge (and then some) and, you guessed it, painting some more.

Paint party, anyone?

Link up with the beautiful Katie and me today!

I was really sleepy this morning too!! I blame it on staying up until the insanely late hour of 10p to watch Nashville.... I am wild and crazy like this.

I like the way you plan on celebrating MLK day. Sounds like a plan.

Sleeping is WAY better than showers - I made that choice today as well :)

Pop some Ibuprofen prior to painting. You won't ache afterwards.

7 years will be donuts and rainbows sounds pretty amazing to me... I'm sure in some cultures, a broken mirror is good luck. ;)

Gray for the win! And sleeping trumps a shower any day in my book.

Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.

I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.

But so what, it was still worth it!

i have a love/hate relationship with painting. I love how it looks at the end, i hate it after the first 30 minutes. =) Can't wait to see how it looks!

We have spent our weekend painting as well. I just keep telling myself it will be worth it when it's done. :)
