Scenes From an Apartment in Progress

You know what is the best feeling? Peeling off the tape after you paint!

Our bedroom is purple. Pinky purple, to be exact. We are learning a lesson about paint color. Seeing one tiny paper of color does not at all equal what it will look like on your walls. This color was much darker on the paint chip than in reality. Luckily we are still cool with how it turned out. The verdict is still out on the in-progress melted peanut butter, golden retriever, baby poop colored dining room walls.

If you look closely in the photo above you might notice that the window trim on the right and the one of the left do not match. That really bothered Jessy. So, she came over and righted the wrong by painting the white casing and our crazy multi-colored door black.

This apartment gets amazing light! Here is Jack lounging on a drop cloth in the early morn.

Tchazo finally realized that it was comfy to lay on the dog beds Jamie gave us.

We needed a little time away from the paint fumes, so we went out for breakfast this morning at the Seward Cafe. We can't wait to fill our apartment with plants. When we saw this hanging plant, we both agreed that we would like to get some of them for the apartment. Does anyone know what kind of plant this is?


  1. You guys are too funny. . . I believe that is a Boston fern! Love, Mom

  2. ditto on the fern; your mama knows plants! ;-)
    i like the purpley wall color, and it looks cool with the black trim. as for the baby poo walls, um, perhaps they'll look better after the room is filled back up with furniture???

  3. a Boston fern. :) We'll miss you at the retreat this winter...

    enjoy minnesota!

  4. i was gonna tell you it's a fern...but i think that's been covered :)

  5. I love how Jessy's tat is just a continuation of the pattern on her pants. Hope to see you soon, Casey
