baby shower

We will be back in the mountains for a baby shower this weekend that I am hosting with a mutual friend for a very special couple that means a lot to Phillip and I. I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Looks like I'll be leaning on a few "old-faithful" recipes that you've seen before, but I can't wait to show you the pics of the presents I am making her. I just can't wait to be surrounded by friends and the beauty of my "peaceful spot" back in Sylva.
Things at the house are going very well. We got a lot done at the house and have been living in it full time since this weekend. We've got a few things left at the apartment to take care of, but other than that we're pretty much all moved. We got the living room painted a very beautiful light tan color, the hideously pink bathroom is now a beautiful green, and the dining room is the same red as our old bedroom. But.... I hate the dining room color. It's awful. It turned out more of a lipstick color this time around, and I don't know why. For some reason, it has more of a pink tone to it than it did back in our mountain home. I thought our bedroom was pretty light, but it must have been more dark than I knew, b/c that color was NOWHERE near that pink color we ended up with. Oh well.... can't change it now. Phillip started to strip the wallpaper in the kitchen and that was just a bad idea. It pulled up the wall behind it and it's just a big mess now. Not sure what we're going to do with it.
OH!! I forgot to mention.... Lil man just got introduced to steps at this new house. Let me tell you!... it is nooooo problem for this guy! He hopped right up on them and got half way up the steps before he got tired! Not to mention, he didn't even use his knees to get up. He's just going one foot after the other! Sheeeeesh!~
