2 Things...painted living room and Twistband

1. I spent the last 1 1/2 watching Ben from B & L Painting, Inc paint our living room and hallway. Might be my new favorite way to paint a room - have someone else do it. ;) Actually, I do enjoy painting and find it relaxing, but this room was a space that Jacob and I could not tackle - the ceilings are higher and lots of cutting in. We left it to the pros. I am absolutely in love with the color. It's Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. I can't stop staring at the walls (is that weird?). Now I'm ready to shop for furniture. Let's just hope that doesn't take another 2 years...

(These pictures aren't great, but I HAD to show you. I promise I'll post better before and afters later.)

2. Have you heard of Twistband, the hair ties that don't dent your hair? I love them. They were in our swag bag at Go Blog Social. AND I also won an awesome glass container full of even more Twistbands. I think I have one in every color, but I'd really like to get these too. As someone who puts their hair up as soon as I'm off work, I love that my hair won't be ruined if Jacob decides he wants to take me out on a hot date. Give them a try, you'll love them!
