The first project is super cute, and super easy! I saw some prints I wanted for our new basement, but they were $225. Not in our budget. Melissa showed me a super cool site (Just a Girl) with tons of great, really cheap decorating ideas. She suggested I try this great "canvas" idea!
The next project is St. Louis style cherry blossoms.
As I mentioned before, I have a hard time finishing projects. This week, I went crazy! Melissa was here for Easter and we started both these projects together. I finished the cherry blossoms last week and just hung the pictures today. Huge slacker, I know. Also, when my parents were here and they painted my house, they left a TINY spot for me to put a second coat on. Well, They came the first week in March and I finally painted Monday. Sheesh. So embarassing. I am hoping that fessing up to blogland, I may improve this weakness. Probably not, though.

We have been lucky to do quite a bit of celebrating so far. Yesterday, Ted's work gave him a nice luncheon to celebrate, and they invited Nolan and I to participate as well. He is a lucky man to have such a great job filled with caring and supportive co-workers.
Last night we went to dinner with his parents, little sister Jody and his grandmother. It was delicious and nice to be together for celebrating.
Today, we had a fun-filled afternoon down at the SLU campus.

My pictures are backwards, so you get the mixed-up version.
Ted graduates from College on Friday. That in and of itself is a beautiful thing, but I will post on that when it happens. With energy focusing away from school things, we have been enjoying some more family adventures! We went to Forest Park and had a nice picnic. It was a gorgeous day and such an ideal location for a picnic.

My sister Melissa and her family came to visit from Colorado. We had so much fun and it was hard to see them leave. She did a much better job recording our adventure on her blog. Her kids are a blast, and Melissa and I did a ton of shopping. Sisters are really quite wonderful.
