Can you tell Dave and I are working on some home improvement projects?

1. We have lived in our house 3 years.

2. Right now our bedroom walls are white. But we're hoping to paint them really soon. We were hoping to do a vineyard theme with one red white colored wall, the rest of the walls, a pinkish color, and accessories a sage green (vine) color. Picking out the colors has turned into a nightmare. We just can't decide.

3. We have a huge print above our mantle of the navy-man kissing the girl in Time's Square of V-J day.

4. I'm not sure I've accomplished any goals on my life list in the past year, although I'd like to get my double wedding ring quilt done very soon (ha ha ha). I did qualify for Boston in Boston, which was a big deal for me.

5. Well, I was going to sign up for cake decorating classes with a friend here at work, but if that doesn't pan out I might sign up for guitar lessons. Learning to play the guitar is on my life list. I've just recently added flying first class to my life list so maybe I'll try to do that in the next year.

1. just over 1 year

2. I guess you'd call it a burnt orange--I'd like to change it, but we just haven't gotten around to doing any painting yet.

3. honestly, don't really have one. it's pretty plain around here. I guess I'm waiting until we paint (see answer #2 . . . :-)

4. I'm not sure if it counts, because I did it the first time around, too, but if so, giving birth drug-free.

5. Umm, I'm not sure, but that's got me thinking . . . I'll get back to you on that one.

1. Been here almost 1 year.

2. All white. =/ Trying to decide on a color for it. By the time we pick one, they'll tell us we're moving again. Heh.

3. Scott took one of me in Jamaica on our honeymoon and had it framed. It was taken on one of the leftover disposable wedding cameras!

4. I'm with Michelle... had our son drug free, too. AND God was good and let us move in here the week before he was born!

5. Um, my life list was full of things I wanted to do before I turned 30. I haven't done very much on the list, so I decided I'll be 29 and holding forever! So the next thing on my list will be... hmmm... I'm not sure. I WOULD like to learn to quilt and to knit, so come on over, Meredith, and help me out! =)

2. See above.

3. I really like the new chandelier we put in the entryway.

4. I ran my first marathon last October.

5. I still want to earn a ranking in fencing, which I'll be returning to after the marathon this month.

Meredith--a friend of mine took a cake decorating class, and really enjoyed. She has several of those shaped cake pans now, and makes a little money by making cakes for her friends' kids' birthdays, or bridal showers, and other events. just a thought . . .
