Summer...Break?

I've been useless as far as writing in my blog! I'm not explicitly trying to avoid it, but summer has a natural tendency to take over my social networking. Yesterday I went to Lake Gregory with Shannon and Sarah, and it was so gorgeous up there. We had a great time, and now it's hard to want to sit down indoors and type...anything.

This week I've been busy painting our master bedroom and getting it put together. We decided to trade rooms with Trinity over summer break, which I know sounds a little strange. Our house technically has two master bedrooms, but one of them is significantly smaller than the other. When we first moved in, we decided to take the smaller of the two master bedrooms because it had a huge walk-in closet, plus it was the only room located on the opposite side of the house apart from the other bedrooms, and I thought it would be nice to have that kind of privacy. Well, time has shown that we are way too cramped in that room, so we decided to trade rooms with Trinity. We are losing the walk-in closet, but we are gaining more space, a large garden tub, and more counterspace in the bathroom.

Trading bedrooms has been a HUGE ordeal. It's not just a matter of swapping all of our stuff, but I also have to repaint both rooms, because neither one is the appropriate colors for the new occupants. Luckily I just finished up with our bedroom, and I love how it came out. We decided to go with purple and ivory, and Clint found this great bedspread on the internet. I had to scrounge around the house to come up with accessories to decorate the bedroom because it was so empty, and today we went to Kirklands and picked up the clock that is hanging over the bed, along with the two sconces. The clock was on clearance for $13...I couldn't believe it. It also says Oxford St. on it, which I just about died, because let's just say that street has significant meaning for me.

In addition to repainting the rooms, Clint and I are also landscaping our front yard. We just had a delivery of rocks...mountains upon mountains of rocks, and we're using them to do a desert-type-scape around an island of grass.

I have a four-page paper due tonight (that I haven't even started), so I better quit blabbin' about home improvement and get cracking on some school work.
