Charlie and Katie’s room went from dark to light…

When we moved last year, we had three children two and under, and I was six months pregnant.  So, despite the fact that I did not like the color of Charlie and Katie’s room (AT ALL), the thought of painting it completely overwhelmed me.  Well, after living with it for a year, I could no longer take it and spent this past week painting.  Oh my gosh, it’s SO MUCH BETTER…and now I want to paint our entire house white.

In other decorating news, I was bored with our living room wall art and decided it was time for a change.  However, I didn’t want to spend  a lot of money on a big project.  So, I gathered digital files of photos I love from various people, had Staples blow them up onto engineer draft paper ($1.50 each) and used this spray adhesive to glue them to previously painted canvases I already had.  Done.

In traveling news, Chris and I took a quick trip to Colorado last weekend…

We drove from Denver up to Nederland and did the Diamond Lake Hike.  Colorado, I love you.

In food news, my basil plant has been slacking lately, but that’s okay, because I discovered that peas make a delicious substitute when it comes to making pesto…

Pesto recipe here, but I subbed 1/2 cup toasted walnuts for the pine nuts.  Remember when I used to have a bunch of food rules and only ate piles and piles of veggies instead of pasta?  That was silly.   Still love my veggies, but cooked brown rice pasta drenched in creamy pesto > raw spiralized zucchini drenched in creamy pesto.
