What were we thinking????

Seriously, I am really beginning to wonder what in the world we were thinking.... a little more than 24 hours until our Halloween Bash and this is what my house looks like!!!


Furniture all in the middle of the room! Due to the decision to paint all the baseboards, a beautiful semi gloss paint that will be easy to clean!



So because we are so ambitious (or dumb) we decided to take on the stairway and the upstairs hall LAST NIGHT!! We have been meaning to do this for a year and we thought "Why not for our party?" so last night we started it and then ran out of paint. Thanks to Todd and Emily and all their help we were able to get A TON done but we still have to finnish it tonight. Kip does not get home from the fire station till about 10pm and there is only so much I can do without him, so yeah....A LATE NIGHT!!! What were we thinking??? Seriously! SO this is what my house looks like, and notice the banister half way attached to the wall??? Yeah it does not come off as easy as expected, OOPS!!! Good thing my husband does repairs like this all the time for his job.


So will all this junk count as Halloween Decorations???
Please wish me luck that we will be able to finish our project and have our house back to order and looking good for the party? Never going to start a project this late again right before a big event!

I WISH we could come to the party. It would be great to see you guys. But, I am leaving at 4 am Saturday morning for Utah.

WOW! you are ambitious. We really should get on our home improvements. I still to this day LOVE the back patio. where did you get your materials? we have way too many rocks in our backyard, and I want to make it a patio.

okay, please don't hate me Sarah. You will probably give me a bad time. I totally thought your party was Saturday night. We planned a temple trip for tonight last week and we really need to go, due to our unemployment situation-we didn't get the last one we thought we had...so, we need some serious guidance. I hope you have so fun and I know you'll get all the home improvements done, hope you get to relax this weekend after it's all said and done. I'm really sorry, I feel bad. Have fun, take lots of pictures.

That is pretty crazy! I am sure it will all work out!

you are ambitious, but I am sure it will turn out fabulous! Nothing like a time crunch to give you a little kick in the pants to get something done :>) Sorry we will miss it tonight...Rich is working, and we already have a babysitter lined up tomorrow night for something else so I would hate to farm the kids out 2 nights in a row...it sounds like it will be a blast and I am sad to miss it! hopefully we can make it next time.
