Busy, busy

Yes, we're still here. We've been busy with so many projects around the house. I'm finally getting around to painting and decorating this room. I'm not going as bold as I originally planned. I found a beautiful fabric for roman shades and I'm keeping the room neutral. It will be wonderful to have big dinners in there as soon as we're finished. Just one more coat of paint...

I've also been busy taking this little one to and from school and keeping her entertained on her days off. We've had a couple warm days here, so we've been enjoying them outside. It won't be too long before we'll be stuck indoors.

I've also been making a lot of comfort food on cooler days. We love turkey chili and this chicken pot pie I made a couple weeks ago. You can find the recipe here, although I made a few changes (no egg or celery). Am I the only adult who can't stand celery?!

Oh, and remember this project? The dresser is finally finished, although I can't take much credit. Okay, I can't take credit at all. Well, I did find the dresser, so does that count? Originally, I planned to use the existing hardware, but it was in bad shape, so when I removed it, it bent and twisted. I just have to put the new hardware on and move it out of the garage. I can't wait to share pictures with you next week.

We are spending this weekend celebrating Halloween. We still haven't carved our pumpkins, but we went to The Great Pumpkin Display in Whitefish Bay last night and we got a lot of inspiration. It's also trick-or-treat on Sunday, so we're hoping for good weather this year.

I hope you're able to enjoy the Halloween festivities this weekend! Check back next week for pictures of a painted dining room and a completed dresser!
