This past weekend we finally managed to find the perfect mix of getting stuff done and relaxing/enjoying ourselves. Friday night we cleaned out our dining room and finally started painting. There had been three greenish coloured squares on the wall for over a year now--we couldn't commit. Now it seems that was for good reason as we painted the room to match the living room and we couldn't be happier with the results:

That was partway through the work and below is once that mirror is hung and things shifted back to normal:

It feels amazing to have one room really feeling finished and looking good. We just need to swap out the light fixture and that room is done...now on to the rest of the house!
What else did we do? My brother and his girlfriend just moved a few blocks away from us so we went over to help assemble some furniture. Well Garret and Elliott did the assembling and Ashley and I supervised from the couch:

We went up to visit our friends at their cottage, wakeboarded, swam, BBQed, hung out and made treats.

My mum's friend Nicki got us this as a wedding gift. Garret really didnt get what the hype was about as I kept pestering him to make popsicles with me. Michele and I made some amazing watermelon/ rum/berry creation and he got on board pretty fast.
It was extremely satisfying Monday night to be tired from having fun, and look around to see our house that I felt proud to be living in.
