Craft Day and Date Night!

On friday we decided to be crafty and work on Thatch's room. We decided a while ago we wanted to paint his room dark gray. With all of the crown molding in our house it was a big task to do alone, but Jimmy worked really hard to do an awesome paint job since I could not paint. While Jimmy was painting i decided that I would work on my project for Thatch. At the beginning of the week I bought some cute fabric to sew the blanket to go in Thatch's crib. So while Jimmy was painting I was sewing. It was my first time using batting in my craft so I was very nervous. It ended up being pretty easy and really fun!

While the paint was drying our house was getting really smelly, so we decided it would be fun to go out and do something fun. We decided to go on one of our old favorite dates. We got all bundled up in our cozy clothes and drove to the beach. We made one pit stop at Wendy's for a half chocolate half vanilla frosty and some french fries. YUMMYYY! We sat on the beach and we watched the waves and looked at the stars. It was freezing so we only lasted about 40 minutes, but it was still fun to be out doing something fun.

Here is just a sneak peak of the new paint and blanket for Thatch's room. We still have a bunch we want to do, and luckily we still have 3 months left to make his room all cozy for him. Side note, 3 months from TODAY our son will (hopefully) be here!! And a few fun photos from our beach date!
