My last kid's birthday party! Can I celebrate or no?

My baby just turned 16 about a month ago - and tonight I threw her a surprise party.  Of course the game system that I was planning on using for entertainment wouldn't work.  We finally got the flatscreen TV mounted last night and the Wii WOULD NOT WORK!  We even bought a new Just Dance - Summer Edition - just for this occasion.  That is how my life is.  Anyway, they had fun being together.  Oh, to be 16 again!

My best side

Four months later....we are perfetaping, priming, and getting ready to paint.  The problem is that because it has taken so long, I want to change SO many other things in my house.  If it had been fast (like 3 days), I wouldn't have had time to find cool houses while blogstalking.  So my house won't be done for a LONG time now.  It's hubby's fault.  Anyway, this chapter is getting closer to closing.

This is another area that has bugged me.  Originally, there were sliding doors to the backyard.  When we had french doors installed, they were smaller - so the solution to hiding the sheetrock extension was moulding.  But it forever bugged me - I considered many things - stenciling the space, some kind of art - but nothing hit me.  I think I figured it out.  It's not done yet, but this is the before:

Hopefully this won't take as long to complete as the rest of the projects.

Good times!

Although the weather wasn't the best, the company definitely was!  We had fun playing in the sand dunes, swimming, coloring Easter eggs and playing.  It was a little crowded.

But that's a small price to pay for this:

Have You Tried This Yet?  You Must!!!

This recipe has been all over Pinterest.  It is lots less time consuming than cinnamon rolls and is just as gooey and yummy.   I think I need to make another cake.  I've already made two this past week.  Here is the recipe.  It would be a delicious addition to an Easter brunch.
