Furniture, Frolicking and Football

Okay, I am going to try uploading pictures with this posting, so cross your fingers...About a week and a half ago I decided that I was going to pull an old cheap-o bookshelf out of storage, sand off the laminate, and paint it aqua so I could stand to have it in my house. I think laminate is so ugly, and this particular bookcase was quite hideous, but we really need some more space for movies and books in this little place I call home. So I got on the internet, downloaded some instructions for painting over laminate, and chose a paint color.

I finally finished the bookcase on Saturday and moved it to its new home on the second landing in my stairwell.

I left work a little bit early on Friday and had a girls night out with Heather and Amy. We first went to get Halloween costumes (fun period costumes to wear with our Venetian masks), and then drove over to Gardner Village for Witches Night. I was a little skeptical when Heather first told me about it, but it was actually really fun. Hundreds of women, every single one dressed up as a witch. Some of these women went all out on their costumes, it was amazing.

Heather, Amy and I got dressed up (hats, capes, and tights), and joined in the fun. We had soup in breadbowls, shopped around Gardner Village, and took lots of pictures. I'm going to have to go back there on a slower night, because there were some really great shops there!

And last but not least, the fabulous BYU vs. Eastern Washington game on Saturday. The Cougs won 42-7, and it was a fun game to watch, but it was COLD. It rained for a majority of the game, and there was some wind, but by the last 10 minutes of the game, there were snowflakes the size of quarters falling and we were all afraid that we had frosbite on our toes.

Another family blog! I am so excited. I love your bookshelf. I am with you on the laminate thing, but unfortunately we have two in our house, I think I will paint them--they can't get worse, right? I am excited to have another blog to check (just a little friendly pressure to keep you updating ;)

I am so excited to have found your blog (thanks Kimberlie).
You girls look great at the witches night out. My mom, sisters and I went there once and saw all of the cute witch decorations but did not go on the special witches night, it looks so fun!
I love the shelf, and your decorating style. It looks great.

Hey, I'm just wondering what ever happened to blogging your Hairspray party?
