This Week...

There has been plenty of activity since my last blog post. The week has absolutely flown by. It began with another trip to Northland for my daughter's final home game of her basketball career.
Then we headed to Minneapolis to help out our good friends. Jason recently spent 23 days in the hospital with a life-threatening abscess. We are so thankful that he is recovering!

We enjoyed their kids!!

Here we are watching a Northland game online!!

We were able to get some work done around the house.
This was a fun project...a chalkboard on the kitchen wall!!!

It turned out great. Beth is going to be putting a border around it and I can't wait to see it finished!

We couldn't go to Minneapolis without stopping in at IKEA!!
We found some useful items and some good deals and ended up spending less than $40!!!
Not bad at all.

Today I spent some time working on my organizing for the 28 Day Organizing Challenge. Due to our unexpected trip out of state, I've had to change my organizing up a bit. I'm now working on several small spaces instead of a major room project. Pics will be coming, soon!

Good for you for only spending $40 at IKEA - it's hard to not spend lots of money there, even when you don't plan on it!

The chalkboard looks neat. I wish I could talk my husband into liking the idea of us having one in our kitchen ... It'll look really nice with the border once it's up - friends of ours did it and used an old picture frame they bought at a yard sale that they refinished.

Enjoy your weekend ...

You sure have been busy! I love the chalkboard in the kitchen. My husband and I have thought about painting the cabinets or the pantry door with chalkboard paint.
