I left you last week with a project started, painting the powder room. Well, it took me 2 days and although this is my vacation, the results were well worth it. This is the before...
...and here is the after. I am so pleased! It looks so much more open and bright. Even Emily, who chose the original red, loves it! I had to do two coats even though the paint had primer in it. Tell me what you think!
Friday night Abby and her boyfriend Tom came up. The first thing Abby wanted to do was give the dogs a bath in the lake (seems a little useless since that's what they smell like in the first place!). Yes, it took 3 of them to hold Milo down, he was very confused. He likes the tub and although the lake water is warm, he wasn't exactly loving it!
Leave it up to my adult sons to revert to a childhood pastime, hunting down bullfrogs! These are some big critters and really give me the creeps. After grossing everyone out, this guy was let go.
Most of the family arrived Saturday afternoon and then more on Sunday. We almost topped last year with 25 people. I have a slew of pictures to share with you, but I'll do that in my next post. Everyone was gone by late last night and I collapsed in bed shortly after. The Husband is cleaning up the patio and yard right now and I have the inside to do. Then we are going to take the wave runners out to the sandbar and chill with a few cold beverages!
Wednesday evening is our cocktail party. It's going to be a great time reconnecting with friends we don't see too often. I really don't have a lot to do to prepare, so the next few days are going to be carefree. I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. The weather here in Michigan is gorgeous and a nice break from all the rain. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you in a few days.
I'm, joining Honey at 2805 for Potpourri Friday.
