Grizzly Bear Brown...

So, this weekend, we had some time to ourselves, as Chris and Jeff took Sebastian to the zoo on Saturday morning. They had a great time, and we were left with time to fill without a child around. We went down to MEC, searching for blue fleece pants for Sebastian, but of course they were out of his size, grrrrrr. We also looked around the Cookbook Company since they always have really neat stuff. After that, we went for lunch. We decided to go to a little diner, and put our name on the waiting list. It's super small, and there were already about 15 people waiting out front. So, while we were waiting, we went to the paint store next door, we looked around. Mostly, we were there to kill time. But, in the end, we decided to buy a can of Grizzly Bear Brown Aura paint, by Benjamin Moore. We've been wanting to paint our front room, so figured we might as well just get around and do it. We put the paint into the car, and headed back to the diner, but it was still going to be at least another half an hour, so we ended up leaving and going to Tommy Burger instead. It's a high end sort of burger eatery. It was fantastic and totally hit the spot!!

After that, we met up with the boys and just chatted for awhile. In the evening, we hung out, searching for painting tape and could not find any. We ended up sorting through one of the cupboards in our kitchen (random, I know, but that's how I clean best, hahaha). 

In the morning today, Jeremy went and got some painting tape, and we prepped the room for painting. It went very smoothly, and the paint was great. Only two coats and it looks pretty good (of course I am a little biased, since I did most of the painting). It's such a nice change!! And, the paint was low VOC, so it didn't even smell like paint in the house. Sweet!! I'd use that paint again anytime!!

Had a nice evening with Jeremy's mom coming over for dinner. Sebastian had her reading him all sorts of books!! It was nice. And that's all I've got for now!!
