A weekend of little projects and rest......

So here it is Sunday night and I am feeling a bit tired as I sit here and watch the Celtics/Lakers game.....All is quite in the house, the girls are all sleeping, Shawn is working and DB is already in bed waiting for us.....We had another great weekend, and I feel like I have been saying that almost every weekend....but it just so true.....

We got lots of little projects done.....Shawn got some quotes on getting our back windows of our house tinted.....we will probably be doing this soon as the afternoon sun can really be a killer.....it didn't help that we didn't have anything covering the back door window and that the blinds on the big window didn't close fully.....so our living room would be super warm in the late afternoon causing our A/C to work a little harder.....and costing us a bit more then we want to pay to stay cool....Along with the quotes we also got new blinds for the family room window (so part of the problem is solved, just need tinting) and blinds for the playroom window (which were sooo bad that we could never get them closed).....We also got a window attachment for the back door window that has the blinds in between the windows which looks awesome and also helps block out all that heat.......AND I finally found Candelabra size CFL bulbs at Lowe's, so we changed out all our ceiling fan lights with those....it was the last size that I hadn't found yet.....so a little more green for us......what I really want to check out is Solar Panels for the roof, since our roof is the perfect slant......but that is a more long term project.....I must say it was cooler in here today with the new blinds......and they look so much better......The girls love being able to block out the sunlight in their playroom too, especially when they are watching a movie on the portable DVD player.....So cute......

The girls were great this weekend.....they really are quite the helpers, helping (or trying to help) whenever they could.....So cute watching Kiara working in the yard with daddy......she swept up is grass blades after he edged the yard......while she was outside MJ was inside helping me bake a cake and putting away dishes.....Lila pretty much gets in the way when she tried to help.....BUT she is pretty much walking most of the time now.....FINALLY......I think she must have known that she has her 15 month appt tomorrow.....I really didn't think she would be such a late walker, especially with her sisters helping her all the time......and trying to teach her.....I was seriously starting to get a little worried that there was something wrong......she is still not great at walking but it's all good.....at least she attempts to walk now instead of automatically going into a crawl......just something I will be talking to the Dr about tomorrow......

So we have a pretty busy early part of the week this week......Lila has her appt tomorrow and I finally decided that it was time to treat my self to a much needed Cut and Color......I am so excited to get my hair done.....it has been long while since I had it colored.....I find its really hard to find a place to get your hair done in a new city.....but after tons of looking and research I finally decided that this place would work.......Avalon Hair Design and Spa......All the reviews I read were awesome and that this place made them feel comfortable.....which is one of the things I look for in a hair salon......I hate pretentious and unwelcoming feeling salons....I got an even better feeling when I called an made my appointment......I actually talked to the owner......he was pretty cool.....So I am excited for Tuesday and to top it off I am getting a good deal since they are having a new client special!.....Shawn is going to take before and after pics (Nana's idea) and I will post on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.......And if the place it cool I may even make and appt for a pedicure......also LONG over due......It's time I started takeing care of me too......here are a few pics from the weekend.....
