Quick post

The kitchen threw up in my living room. Yes it did.

The good news is that now the kitchen is empty, de-goo-ed, scrubbed, spackled and textured, with a little bit of tape thrown in, I can now actually begin to paint.

The paint colors are....

Tropical Hideaway - for the cabinets
Dipping Chocolate - for the wall down the stairs
Graceful Willow - for the ceiling and the rest of the walls

Amber asked if I was going to post about the dance festival that our school does at the end of every year so I will! Amber and I got to sit together and totally talk while the principal gave instructions on where to pick up your children after it was over. But we were able to figure it out.

This festival is tradition at the school. My kids go to the same grade school that I went to. Yes they do. And I remember doing the dance festival. I loved it. When I went there every year the fourth graders got to do the "May pole". If you don't know what this is then you are missing out. It was SO cool. And it wasn't called the dance festival then. Back in the day it was known as May day. I don't remember if they actually tried to hold it on May first or not but that's what it was called.

I was going to post the video's but they are taking longer than I have time for to load so you'll have to be happy with pictures.

First up came Amber's daughter doing a patriotic dance. She rocked it.
Then came Jillian doing a Samoan Slap dance. I didn't get any actual pictures of her out doing the dance because I was filming it. Doesn't she look cute with her braids and lei?

McKenna came next and again I got no pictures of the actual dance because I was recording it on the camera. But here she is afterwards at home with her lava lava reinacting doing the hula.
And then George's class did a song to Kung Fu fighting. I actually got a couple of shots of him walking onto the field before the festival and then as his class ran onto the field for the dance. Doesn't he look ready to Kung Fu fight you?So there you have it.

I'm still here. Hopefully this kitchen will be finished up by next Tuesday. That's the goal.

Until then pray for me living in the midst of kitchen puke.

What a fun festival! Can't wait to see the completed project!

Rachel Sue said...

Good luck! The colors sound lovely.

Kitchen puke is the worst. . .

Emmy said...

Oh excited to see the pictures of your kitchen! Sounds like some major changes.

My family used to do the May Pole around the flag pole in our old home. I miss those days!

Melissa said...

Kitchen Puke! I don't care who ya are, that's funny! Good luck with that whole adventure! And nice job kids on the dance festival

Brooke said...

I can't wait to see the finished product, I'm still waiting to pick out my colors!

I miss the Utah schools' dance festivals. All we have here in West Texas is field day, not as much fun by far...:(

Christa said...

I never got to do anything so exciting as a dance festival when I was in elementary. It looks like a lot of fun.

Isn't it ridiculous how messy home improvement projects are. We painted our house from top to bottom (ceiling to baseboards, upstairs and down) when we bought it three years ago. It's all "boring brown". My kids description, not mine. I didn't want to look at a paintbrush or roller for about a year and a half. I'm slowly getting over it and have started painting a wall here and there. Be sure to post pictures of the finished project.

Deep breaths...okay, now I can go on. I've been missing your posts, going through withdrawal, actually...

Omgirl said...

I really really REALLY want to see pictres of the before and after, or at least the after. The colors you're using on your kitchen sound beautiful and intriguing. Please to post pics!!!

Bonnie the Boss said...

Such cute kids! what a fun time for them I really can't wait to see the kitchen!

Lee said...

We used to do something similar at my school. We'd do little school plays with dancing and singing. A few times a year.

Cynthia said...

That's a great way to end the year. Our school does something similar. Each of the grades do a dance. Looks like the kids had a great time!

Such cute pictures what a fun thing to do in school! I hope to see your kitchen in it's finalness too!!

Sarah said...

I keep seeing your comments on other blogs I follow so I thought I would come over and check out your blog, hope you dont mind a new follower. I too have had my kitchen throw up in various other rooms of my house, or the other way around. I painted my whole house last fall, it seemed like it would never be done. I promise as long as you are still working on it some day it will be finished!

Neurotic Chic said...

I love "before and after" photos of home makeovers. Can't wait to see yours! :)

tammy said...

springrose said...

All this paint talk on the blogoshere is making me want to paint something! HMMM What to paint, maybe the girls room! Can't wait to see the pictures and cute, CUTE kids!! I wish our school did a dance festival! Sounds fun!!

Shawn said...

I had to visualize your colors for your kitchen---I hope I got them right. But PLEASE post pics, so I will see if I got it right!

Cutie kids....my grade school used to do the May pole when I was in 3rd grade----is this in Utah? Hmmmm.

Vanessa said...

I can totally do my 6th grade dance still to "We Built This City on Rock-n-Roll". Next time I see you, I'll totally re-enact it. I know you can't wait.

Vanessa said...

I'm sure Mr. Reim-chizel (I can't remember how to spell it!) would be impressed. He would be even more impressesd if you could remember YOURS!!!!!!!!

AS Amber said...

YAYAYAYAY!! Thanks for posting pix of my baby girl! I wish you'd have posted one of Hayden because that would mean you actually found him in order to take his picture which is more than I did. Little terd was hiding right in the front row!

And yes, Jilli looks darling in her braids and lei.

And I'm pretty sure my entire house has thrown up on itself. Every day.

Jo said...

I wanna see befores and afters too! You are one busy lady! And the kids look like they had a great time.
