A Very Productive Long Weekend

Wow! I can hardly believe it is Monday afternoon. Greg and I have had a very busy weekend. We had a great time hanging out with our friends, Rich and Tracy, on Friday evening. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and ate burgers and cheese fries (who doesn't love cheese fries). I also discovered a new drink that I sunrise. Thanks Tracy for the recommendation! After a lazy Saturday morning, we headed to Chapel Hill to buy paint for the downstairs bathroom. We ate at Evos a "feel great" fast food place (all organic products, read more here)
We bought our Atmospheric Aura paint from Ace. After a quick trip to Trader Joe's, we headed to Lowes to pick out tile for the bathroom.
On Saturday evening we gutted the bathroom and applied two coats of paint to the while. While Greg was demoing I was upstairs repainting the trim in the guest bathroom. We went to bed very tired but we were excited thinking about how much better our "new" bathroom would be.
On Sunday morning we laid tile. It was a pretty quick painless process. We looked around for new vanities in the afternoon but haven't found one we like. We did our grocery shopping at Super Target and I was very impressed that we were able to get all organic groceries there. Who would have thought Target had such a good selection of organic products. After a long day, we headed to Smithfields BBQ to pick up a non-organic dinner!
We got up Monday morning ready to grout the bathroom. This was the worst part of the weekend. It's not difficult work just tedious. When I last checked, the grout was drying and it was looking really good. Greg seems a little disappointed. I don't know if he wanted more contrast between the tile and the grout color or what but I like it.
We've been to the gym and now it is time to start cooking. We are looking forward to an evening infront of the tv. There is a new episode of Jon & Kate plus 8 on as well as the season premier of Prison Break.
