My Husband Made Me Pee My Pants

So we have had a rough couple of weeks, here in the Kootenays, but last night, we finally remembered how to have a good laugh.

I recently decided we needed some new form of exercise, and was inspired by my sister's wii. So at our last field trip to walmart, we picked up....you guessed it....hula hoops.
It took us a while to get it going, but holy cow , what a work out.

Baby, your awesome, I literally peed my pants.

Progress Report - A+

Wow, has hubby ever gotten busy in two days!

Check out my new bedroom. I'm not even joking, it took me a minute to figure out where I was this morning! And what day it was. I thought for sure it must be the weekend, waking up in such a soothing room! (Refer to previous post to see the old color) Excuse the mess, we haven't put things all back yet.
However, I have clearly come to the conclusion that new window coverings are REQUIRED. Hubby however has not come to that conclusion yet...can we all agree that the beige mini blinds are horrific? Some nice white flowy whispy curtains? Yes? Everybody post your opinions so I can use them to convince him!

Last year my mom gave me this nifty little gizmo, for those of who are a little challenged in the flower arranging department. You bend it over the vase and then each flower will stay in place.
And this is how they turned out! Looks pretty good, thanx mom!

Yup, still raining.

And I can't believe I lit the wood stove in JUNE! Good Grief.

The biggest news of the week is we bought a new to us vehicle! Wait for it....no laughing....it's a mini van. I said no laughing! It's awesome. And it has AC. And it was really cheap. And I can't wait to bring it home! But first we must sell the corolla...soooo if anybody wants a corolla 4wd, call me! Here she is! What a beauty! So roomy! And since my pictures are downloading in record time today, here are the Rhododendrons in bloom, there is no sun to take a picture, but the color is really much better then it shows. There are a ton of iris' blooming too.
The upstairs bathroom is completed, CHECK! The color is a little more subtle then before. I'm still not in love with it next to the cedar, but it's growing on me, we put up new toilet roll holders and new towel holders, and thats about all we will do in there for now. Maybe some new lights if I come across anything good.

And here is a picture of our bedroom, so you can appreciate why we sometimes have trouble sleeping. Who picks these colors? I'm still debating doing it the same blue as the bathroom or the grey from downstairs. I just don't want to introduce another color.

And lastly, a picture of the lighting in the bonus room, I really like them and Tommy did a great job getting them all to hang the same height!

Wish us luck for a speedy sale on the corolla so we can start driving our dreamy van!
