New Front Door

Well let me first start out by saying that this past weekend Saturday to be exact was mine and Matt's 11th Anniversary. Since we had spent so much on taking the kids all over just a few weeks ago and than tons on clothes and school supplies for them to have everything they need for back to school, we were a little tight and couldnt do a whole lot.
My main thing was just some time without the kids.We got that thanks to my wonderful in-laws!

 I have been wanting for awhile to paint our front door. So, after going out for a nice dinner we decided instead of spending money on a movie or something we would just come back home and paint the door.
I know incredibly lame but it is what it is... is what Matt did for me for my anniversary....

Notice the outline of a star that we hung there for the 4th of July.

Here is what the end result looked like.

Well we had a great anniversary despite not actually doing that much. 

Now my front door matches my shutters. I need to get a new outside picture but I still have some things I want to do first...
I have a few more projecst coming that I am going to start tackling as soon as the kids go back to school.

Glad to see you back and blogging! Happy Anniversary too BTW! Sometimes just spending time with one another is what is really important! People who don't have kiddos don't realize how nice it is to work on something with out getting interrupted a million times LOL! Hope your week is going great!

yeah thats exactly how I feel. Especially something like painting is tons easier without kids underfoot and it was something I have wanted to do for awhile, so I think it was a great way to spend out anniversay!
