I Love a Rainy Night

Happy Monday peeps (psst...Monday of my birthday week may I add)!  Greg and I had a great weekend around the house.  Mother Nature decided to give Houston a massive downpour on Friday, just in time for me to commute home from work.  So, after a 2 hour drive, I was so happy to come home to Greg cleaning the house and cooking dinner (what a gem he can be!).  While we ate, he decided that we should paint the insets in our sheetrock a contrasting color.  Note:  I have wanted to do this since we moved in, but we just haven't gotten around to it.  So, luckily, this rainy Friday night was the perfect night for a little home improvement.  Luckily, we had the paint from our dining room project that is yet to be complete.  I cranked up Pandora on the tv (DirectTV's saving grace in my opinion) and we got to painting.

I love how it turned out and Greg did such a good job with all the details.  There's still a few accents walls that I would like to do, but I think we might just have to bring in the professionals for that one!

Another quick side note...  last weekend, Greg & I attended a Valentines Charity dinner party for a local family in need.  It was a great event and we really enjoyed it!  We are both suckers for a silent auction (I guess we both have a competitive streak).  My item of choice for the evening was a beautiful pot rack.  I have wanted a pot rack for a while now and what better way to buy one than when the proceeds go to a good cause.  Well, I won it and Greg and our wonderful neighbor, Alan, installed it this past weekend.  Isn't it beautiful??  I love it and think it really adds something to the kitchen!

And look!  Dinner's already started!
