Random post name, I know... but stick with me.  It's what I've been up to.  Well, and going to the dentist for the first time in three years.  The hygienist was really nice and complimented my lack of plaque build up considering the length of time that had passed.  Uhh... thanks, I think.  The bad news, homegirl has two cavities.  One I was sure of, the other I'm not totally surprised about since the last time I was at the dentist they mentioned two dark spots on my teeth that had potential to become cavities.  I'll give you three guesses on where my cavities have developed... Yup, on those two dark sport.  Bummer.

On to better events......

Wednesday morning my mom and I went to the Air Guard base here and saw 70 World War II Veterans take off on an honor flight to Washington DC. It was such an awesome experience.  I have so much respect for theses brave men and women!  It was an early (and cold) morning, but TOTALLY worth it!!

Tuesday night after school I channeled my inner Megan and started a couple DIY projects.  If you haven't met Megan, go read her blog.  She's an awesome DIYer who is also into working out and being fit.  Pretty sure she's my long lost running buddy!

First up was this chalk board.  I've had the pieces to it and the paint for a while, I just hadn't gotten around to painting it.  I'm not sure why, because now that it's done, I love it!!  I hung it in the kitchen.  It's hard to tell from the picture how big it is.  It's not huge, but it's the perfect size to make a grocery list (or write little notes to R) on.  

Next up were these letters.  I ordered them from Woodland Manufacturing for a really good price.  I chose the letters I wanted, along with the font and size.  My inspiration for this was from Megan's post about her fall mantle.  I loved the idea of the big letters to spell something so this is what I did.  The 'O' is supposed to be slightly crooked.  It symbolizes that our love is not perfect.  The only perfect love comes from God. 

In between coats of paint on my projects I DIY'ed my nails.  I know in a previous post I mentioned my that my nails are always shellacked, but I decided to try something new.... doing they myself!  They look okay, but it's not shellac.  The color is called Gunmetal.  It's by Sally Hansen.  Not bad for a $2 find.  

So that's what I've been up to the last two nights.  It was all fun.  Now I'm looking for more DIY projects.  Perhaps painting a chevron accent wall somewhere.... hmm.
