Hodge Podge

Are you having a good week so far? My kids have coughs, I hate that.
We started school this year a couple of weeks early with
the intention of taking the last part of this week off.
So, I am getting together our plans, and so far I know for sure
we are going to go to the movies to see that new Alpha and Omega
movie. It looks pretty cute. Maybe a zoo visit and a picnic.
I'm a no plans are the best plans kind of girl.

Well this past Saturday was Rhett's first "flag" football game. We were
all excited! He had on his jersey for the first time and I think
probably had no idea what to really expect.
That's him in the grey shorts below.

  Getting stretched out.
 We brought our personal cheerleader. ;)
With their flags on the game started. And after our team was shoved from behind,
pulled down by their jersey's and getting told "I'm gonna get you", I realized
the other team wasn't told this was "flag" football.
That had to be it, right? They are 5 year olds.
I didn't remember the 2 teams we sat and watched before our
game started acting like this. hmmm
It was an interesting start to football. You know I wouldn't have thought
a whole lot about him being tackled and talked a little smack to, if
he was older, and he had on pads. Any hoo, what an introduction.
Can I tell you it took me a while to cool down
after that, and it wasn't because it was a hot day.
;)

Well in other news I thought I would share the before shots of my furniture that is
in the midst of made-over. Both pieces were in such good shape I almost felt bad for painting them...
almost.

This piece I found at the salvation army (71st & Garnett, for you locals).

And this is a computer armoire that I have had about 7 years. Really it was in pretty
great shape except a few scuffs here and there. But I was ready for 
a different look for the piece. I have had so much dark furniture for so 
long and am ready to change it up a bit.

I hope to post the finished products later this week.

Have a wonderful day!

I really like your pieces for your makeover! Your large cabinet will look really nice painted! Last year my Noah played tackle football (5th grade). His coaches had him blocking boys taller than his older brother. He did it - they didn't expect him to be so strong - but it was crazy. He took this year off and that's ok with me!
