St. Patrick's Day 2010

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We had our 4th Annual St. Patrick's Day Party this past weekend with aro17 of our family and friends (+ 2 adorable bebes). I made over 13 lbs of corned beef with all of the fixin's. The fun part was that we purchased a home in the last year and our house is conveniently located on Shamrock Trail, which is perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Below are some photos from the event.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

I'll be posting pics later today from this past weekend's 4th Annual St. Patrick's Day party with family and friends, but to hold you over, here's a link to last year's party, menu and recipes.

Nightstands: Before and After

I've been searching for a pair of old nightstands for at least six months. I keep finding a single jewel of a piece, but I really wanted a pair... with a drawer. I finally settled on a newer pair of nightstands that are more contemporary than I would like, but they'll work for now.

We sanded and then painted them to match our dresser.
I really like how they turned out. Functionality was key for me on these. Our bedroom is finally coming together!

P.S. I apologize for the lack of posting lately. I have had to re-evaluate some priorities in my life and in addition to being extra busy at work these days, I am spending more quality time with my husband which is never a bad thing. :-)
