Look what arrived just in time for the Colorado Symphony concert on Friday night:
Yes, some overpriced glittery barrettes! As a lover of the internet, I’ve been a longtime fan of ban.do but had never indulged. But the current state of my hair forced me to do it! It needs to be tamed in any way possible. So ban.do bling it is!
The concert was wonderful, and my adult student who attended with us (and bought our tickets! so nice!) really enjoyed it.
The front entry area is staying vanilla ice cream, but the rest has been razzle dazzled!
I am so happy with the color! I love it! I’m so happy that it’s on the walls and, for once, I’m totally confident I made the right decision. It’s not purplish. It’s not reddish. It’s all pink!!! And yes, Kevin is the best for letting me choose it. But he definitely can admit that it looks good. One of our next top priorities is changing the light fixture. It’s an eyesore!!!! I’m thinking about doing some sort of a pendant light or chandelier. I’m also furniture and rug shopping. Maybe we can make some more Craigslist friends?!
Speaking of our Craigslist friends:
We took them to this classy establishment on Saturday night! We were supposed to meet up at Hops & Pie, but it ended up being an hour and a half wait. No thanks. So we headed around the corner to the Empanada Express Grill. I’m so glad we did because it was a much quieter & cozier environment for the four of us to talk. Uh… best double date first date ever! We ended up inviting them over to our place to finish off those brownies and show off their settee in our pink room! Too funny, right?!
Whew! That was a lot of socializing for us in one weekend! Sunday afternoon, we celebrated the insanely warm weather with some Starbucks. I’m so happy to, for once, be the person looking at other peoples’ snow on Facebook!! You can keep it!!!
We did a little inspiration scouting for our pink room in the Cherry Creek area. World Market is moving so they were having a huge clearance sale. We found these pretty pink polka dot knobs to replace the knob on the bathroom cabinet I broke off the first day we owned the house. I know, right? We actually bought 10 of them since we weren’t sure how many we needed, and they rang up to $6! Awesome.
So excited to walk by this:
We almost made it home after only spending $6! Almost!!! We decided to stop in Lululemon on the way home. But it’s not what you think!
Kevin’s first Lululemon, and I can tell you, he doesn’t know how to wait out for the best sale like I do so it’s more than I’ve ever spent there. But he got a sweet jacket — and he keeps explaining to me that he can wear it to work. Great!! But I don’t think I get Starbucks for the rest of the month. Haha. But Kevin gets to look like Bob Harper in all of his Lulu glory.
What are three words that would characterize your weekend? Not sure if Kevin would have chosen the same 3. Haha. Maybe he’d like to comment on what his choices would be, and on his new Lulu attire.
