What did I do?
*Went to breakfast with a friend one day.
*My brother took me out for dinner one day and my parents for lunch another day.
*I hosted an all-day craft day and got most of Katri's scrapbook done and lots of fun time chatting with my friends and eating pizza.
*I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and did not cook for an entire week! I did a load of dishes once or twice.
*I painted for at least 30 hours and got my schoolroom wall done, Ali's room, the boys' room, and Katri's room done.
*Read for 2-3 hours a day
*Babysat my nephew a couple of times and hung out with my sis-in-law while she did laundry at our house (she helped paint for an hour too)
*Hosted a fiesta for my brother and his family after church where 15 people came and ate a taco/nacho lunch at my house
*Watched 6 chick flicks
*Listened to at least 20 hours of sermons/Focus on the Family broadcasts while I painted. I find audio messages to be SOOOOOOO encouraging and I think this was the highlight of my time. It was so encouraging! I almost never listen to music when the kids are in the house just because they are soooo noisy and disruptive and loud that I can't handle it. When I'm alone, I enjoy music again!
Here's Katrielle's room!

A vintage print of girls in a garden from the thrift shop
I made the hat and flower pot decoration for her Garden Tea Party room using materials from yard sales or the dollar store. The other decorations were yard sale finds.
I painted this frame and then put pretty fabric in it and then glued a teapot cookie cutter into it for a wall decoration
I got the cute "I'm a Little Teapot" decal from a friend's etsy shop. It matched the colors I picked PERFECTLY!
I'll show you the other rooms I painted in the next post.....
