Happy 5k Easter!!

Well, I did it! I trained for it on my iphone using couch to 5k app, it took 9 weeks but this morning I ran 3.107 miles at 4.5 mph, A 5k!
I have a new piece for the kitchen, the valance. I had to commission Tanya to sew them, I just did not have the time or energy with all the work I have been doing around here....

How cute is that valance?? The fabric is little cherries! Thank you Tanya, I owe you a few more breakfasts and lunches!
The painting is pretty much completed! Whew, I hope I never see another paint brush as long as I live, but the dining room is a nice crisp white, I will start hanging my signs tomorrow. Photos to follow! Stay tuned!

You did it! I'm so proud of you! A 5K!! Keep it up an in September you'll have to come out and run the Komen Race of the Cure with me!

You hate to paint and you did the dining room anyway! Hooray for you! The valance is gorgeous! Tanya really can sew! So excited for the counter tops!!

See you this weekend!

Hey - congrats on running your miles - you are doing fantastic!!!

Love the valance and can't wait to see the entire kitchen done! Want to come over and start painting here - "No" and neither do I!!!

I hope you get your cabinet tops soon so you can host us all to lunch - maybe I should leave my request! Just kidding!
