Ahhhhh...that was nice.

Did you participate in Unplugged? Click below to read all about it.

A Soft Place to Land

My day Unplugged was a bit of a challenge if I'm being honest! At the normal times during the day when I would sit and catch up with all of you, I didn't know what to do with myself. Let me tell you, drinking my morning coffee is just not the same without my blogging buddies! We did get a lot done though.

While the girls were in school, I started on the bathroom. I have the whole thing painted and now just need to decorate so I'll be able to show it to you soon. Here is a peek at the medicine cabinet with its new look.

My hubby got working on our bedroom. See my new "To Do" list in my sidebar? We are on a timeline here! Between Friday and Saturday he managed to get the room emptied, carpet up, nail holes spackled, and the floor sanded. Look at this gorgeous floor that was hiding underneath the carpet. I know it's going to look great once it is finished.

Then on Friday night we went to our favorite ice cream spot for a cone. Of course I forgot my camera so you are stuck with this random picture that I can take no credit for.

Overall, it was nice to have a computer break. While I just might unplug again in the future, I don't think I could ever make it a permanent change.

And on a completely unrelated note, I forgot to blog a couple weeks ago about the big dance! My daughter Ella had a Father/Daughter Dance with her Girl Scout troop. They had a great time! The theme was "Disco Fever." Not the easiest thing to dress for. We found this green, big flowered number and thought it would work just fine. The silver shoes I found for her were a big hit.

As you can see my husband was anti theme. He didn't dress like he was going to a Roller Disco but they let him in anyway.

Here is me and my favorite Girl Scout.

While they went to the dance, my parents took our little guy to McDonalds for a Spiderman toy. Darn those toys, he's been asking to go to McDonalds every day since they came out! So that left me and my Hailey. We went to TGIFridays and had a great dinner together.

I'm looking forward to finding out how everyone else made out "Unplugged." Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!

I hadn't heard about unplugged. If I had, I probably would have participated. I would have had a hard time not getting to read my favorite blogs. We lived without a computer until just a couple of years ago, and I used to say "who needs a computer?", but now I say "I need my computer". :) Ha ha. You girls look great! Hope your husband and oldest had a great time at the dance!

I didn't participate in the unplugged. I feel that browsing through my favorite blogs is a little rest stop in my day of cleaning, cooking, laundry and the endless list of to do's. I need that "me" time.

Looks like you got a bunch done. I always love seeing how you are transforming your rooms.

Your little one looks so cute for her Disco dance with her Daddy...awwww.

Your whole family is just beautiful.

I happily happened upon your blog today, and I'm kicking myself for not finding it sooner!!! I have a feeling this'll be one of my favorites. You are just lovely, your home is gorgeous, and your family is beautiful! I also have a daughter in Scouts, and we missed out on the Father/Daughter dance this year. I was so bummed, and so were my Emma and her daddy!

Off to peek at your other posts and the pics in your sidebar. Have a blessed, blessed day!

It just took me far too long to find the "post comment" link. I think I need more coffee. Anyway, I am glad you had a restful and productive day while unplugged. I did it too and wasn't productive but I was restful :)
