I spent almost all night yesterday/early this morning helping my good friend Marcia paint her nursery. She is expecting her first baby at the end of next month.
Using earth friendly paint from a local company called Yolo, which I totally recommend, the paint did not smell at all. We used clay (brown) for 3 walls and water (blue) for the 4th. Then polka dots in water (blue) and leaf (yellowish green). It turned out beautifully, although around 1:30am Marcia's husband came in to tell us we were crazy. We finished around 2:00am and then had to make a run to Walmart for curtain rods.
It would have been smarter to start before 8:00pm, but we got it done and will be able to have the nursery completed well before baby boy Kelly arrives.

It's Spring Break! I made it successfully through winter quarter and survived! I just got back from my first spring break adventure, my friends Cara and Emily and I went to Portland for the first weekend of break. We got there on friday night and spent almost all day saturday shopping and then the big event was going to see the musical Wicked, which is about the life of the witches of Oz. The show was amazing! Tiah came with us and we all got dressed up for the show.
Then on Sunday Cara, Emily, and I went to Cannon Beach and spent the day on the coast. It was both Cara and Emily's first visit to Cannon Beach so we ate at Mo's, walked down the beach to haystack rock and toured downtown Cannon beach and looked at all the fun shops. Then on our way back to Tiah's house we stopped by my favorite cupcake bakery, Saint Cupcake!
Finally on monday all us girls, Tiah included woke up early, well for me, got coffee and went to powells bookstore in downtown and looked around for almost an hour. Then Cara, Emily and I headed off but we made a little stop at Multnomah Falls and had a picnic as well as made the short hike to the bridge over the falls. All in all the trip was a great success! the weather was ok for portland and the coast and we all had an amazing time! Now I'm back in Kennewick for the next two days and then I will be heading off to Salem, Oregon with my roommate shannon! It should be fun!!!

I had attempted to make Banoffee Pie, which I realize isn’t exactly Irish but was Scottish and something I really loved when I was in Scotland. Banoffee Pie is a toffee & banana pie with a cookie crust. This is made by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk for 4 hours to make homemade British toffee, 5 hours into the process I realized that my can of sweetened condensed milk was actually evaporated milk; I had grabbed the wrong can out of the cupboard.
Needless to say I was happy to see Molly’s cake come through the door.
I will attempt to make my Banoffee Pie at a later date since I still have a can of sweetened condensed milk in the cupboard.
