awkward and awesome!

1:59 PM

Awesome: My newly remodeled laundry room.  

Awkward: I tried to use a leftover gallon of paint, which didn't completely cover the wall.  So I bought a "matching" quart.  Well the quart didn't perfectly match the previous color.  I ended up having to buy another whole gallon.  SO lame.  

Awesome: Dying Madison's hair with Kool-Aid!

Awkward: While dying her hair she accidentally pulled her hair out of the hot water, which resulted in her running around the kitchen with RED Kool-aid water dripping all over the place as she tried to escape the hot water in her hair.  THEN the trauma of the experience gave her a bloody nose.  There was quite the mess in my kitchen, but she loves her hair and thankfully got over it fast!

Awesome: My 4-year-old's fashion sense. 

Awkward: I have no privacy whatsoever.  Yes, I was in the bathroom with my phone when I took this picture. 

Awkward: August in Texas sucks.

Awesome: Super-power, edible wrist bands. 

Awkward: Colton is petrified of Chuck-e-cheese.  Would not leave my lap for a good 30 minutes. 

Awesome: Bacon wrapped shrimp.  To die for.  Even more awesome, my husband saved the last one for me.  He's a keeper.
