Less than 36 hours and my in-laws will be here. Things remaining on my list:

clean bathroom
grocery shopping
clean house

plan things to do on visit
clean house

I am looking forward to their visit, it's been almost 2 years and we've done so much with the house, I can't wait for them to see it! The guest bathroom is 98% done! I just need to hang a few things on the wall, and give it good cleaning.

Snow in April

Wow, snow in April! I went home to West yesterday to visit my parents, and today it actually snowed! At first it was just little flakes, but after lunch it started really coming down! I was able to take a few pictures on my cell phone! Then I drove back to Austin, and it snowed until Temple, and it was so thick! It was sticking in the grass, but the streets were still too warm. I guess because it was melting on contact, thankfully!

I haven't written in a long time, but I've really wanted too. Now I can't remember half the things I wanted to write about. Guess I'll try this short recall list:


Bridge to Terabithia - good story for the most part, a bit too long, the kids were cute but it's a sad story and the ending was a let down. Thumbs on the side.

The Last Mimzy - good story, not too long, believable actors, cute kids. Thumbs up!

300 - too long, too much over the top imagery, too much fake blood. Thumbs down. (Sorry Tony)
Wanting to see: Blades of Glory


Yard - I was able to make the brick circle around the tree in the back yard, it looks pretty good. Even Tony thinks so! The tree is blooming, with new green leaves, it's so pretty! It was very muddy but I think that helped me to dig the shallow trench around the tree and place the bricks on their sides. I still have about 50 bricks so I can some day do the trees in the front yard, and one day make a flower bed.

Guest Bathroom - The painting is done! I think it turned out well, the horrible turquoise is gone! I've almost decided on blue and green towels, and the accessories are shell themed. I need to get a new shower curtain and rod, new towel bars, buy the shadow boxes and decorate them, buy towels, and just put it all together. It's all in my head for now, but I only have 2 weeks before Tony's parent's visit so I need to get it done! Maybe I'll actually be able to post before and after pictures.

Well that's a very condensed version of what's been going on. I'll try to write more later. Now I really need to get back to work!
