Lately I’ve Been Trippin’

The past couple weeks we’ve been tripping with my family. We stopped in Utah (where I got to celebrate my birthday!) on our way to California for Reece’s graduation from Marine Corps boot camp. We had a lot of fun seeing friends and family who were able to make time to see us. and we are so proud of our Marine!

After the graduation ceremony

Here are a few pics from our short stop at Mission Beach.

Anyway, before we left, we painted our kitchen and dining room floors. Yes! We did! I looooooove them!

See that awful cement pad? We have no idea why it’s there. It goes all the way down through the floor to the ground outside. Now it blends!

We used a porch and floor polyurethane tint-able oil-based paint by Glidden.  So awesome! Because the polyurethane is already in the paint, your paint doesn’t yellow! I might have to re-do Caeden’s room because his turquoise floor (we used a latex paint) got a yellow tint as soon as I put a poly coat on it. Boo!

I also chalked my fridge! With colored chalkboard paint! I had some leftover from a project and was all, hey! Paint the fridge!
