4 Day Work Week Coming up....

So hopefully Monday won't be so too bad! Monday mornings are always hard for me to get back into the groove after the weekend. I hope to go in super early tomorrow, it just all depends on how I feel when the alarm goes off at 4 am. Some days last year I went in from 3 am to 3 pm when I was on 12 hours. I love getting to work early when no-one is there and the phone isn't ringing, customer's aren't emailing yet, and I can work hours straight with no's great! I get so much accomplished. 

Tuesday is my anniversary, Tom and I will be married for 17 years. Hard to believe we have been together for almost 20 years already. I love that. We still act like we did in high school and have so much fun together. In fact last night in the park, I ran ahead when he stopped and I told him to run to catch me so I came up with "Stranger in the Park" I told him I would run ahead then he had to chase me and I would pretend he was a stranger. LOL we are goofy, well I AM goofy and he follows along to make me happy. I like to be crazy in good way..keep it fun :) So Stranger in the Park is a new way to spice it up and also get a good workout if you run as fast as I did to try to get away from him :)

Ever since I had my office at work painted Bright Yellow, my new favorite color is yellow. There are so many things I want that are yellow, it's such a happy fun color. I wanted to paint a room here yellow but Tom doesn't think he would like it, so I decided instead to use it as a color to pop out. Like these prints from Etsy that I want to make myself since I do work at a printing company, it would be silly for me to buy them.

My kitchen is a dark wine color on the one side and a light pea green on the other side that goes into the living room all the way up the stairs and down the other stairs, so it's going to take A LOT of painting to change these colors. I am thinking of painting the wine color dark grey and all the green white. The living room upstairs has Eggplant Microfiber couches that I bought because the lady that lived here had that color and I loved how it went with the green. It's going to take a lot of hours and days to paint the walls but I think it will make the rooms look nice and fresh. We have been here for 4 years and haven't painted any of the rooms exept for the boys. The people that lived here had 2 daughters so we had 2 girls rooms to paint. I painted Gage's 3 shades of grey and Graham's an orange color. 

I love how this dark grey looks in a kitchen with the yellow popping out.

 I love these owl measuring cups from West Elm

I guess I am on a yellow kick right now, I really wish I would have bought this little backpack from Madewell for my trip instead of my big canvas bag

herschel supply company® classic backpack $40

and I really want these yellow skinny jeans like Syndey from The Daybook wears in this picture, they are from Windsor, just not sure if I could pull them off like she does. So cute!

Ok enough about yellow :) I just want everything yellow right now!

I am getting ready to go workout and then get to bed early. Have a great week!
