#678 Food Fest & The White Paint.

Food Fest, the FUMC election day tradition, was today and Ben and I picked up sweet potato casserole, rotel chicken spaghetti, cornbread dressing, chicken spectacular, pimiento and cheese, poppy seed chicken, and pork tenderloins. Because we now have a deep freeze, Mit thought it wise for us to load up on everything they had available. So… If you’re hungry, we have the good stuff.

Also, we dipped our first paintbrushes at the new house today with the help of our friends and family. We successfully painted the dining room and breakfast room. Just 10 more rooms to go! Yikes.

Here’s the painting in progress—Dover White throughout the house:

Now here’s the before pic. Several of the rooms are a lovely buttery yellow and a bright baby blue:
But I’ve got plans for an all-white house. After:
Just wait till those sconces are oil-rubbed bronze and our homemade farm table is here!
When it’s all said and done, this is the inspiration for our entirely monochromatic white house:

Fingers crossed. We can do this, right?
