It's Curtains for Us!

Since I have this rare free morning, I'm using part of it to catch up on some of the things I've been meaning to post.  So  . . . here ya go!
Two weeks ago, I got to enjoy one of our rare teacher workdays (no kids, no meetings, just a much needed "get-stuff-done-in-my-classroom" day).  I had planned to clean out the giant closet in the back of my music room.  This closet is so big and so stuffed that in the 3 semesters that I've been at Burks I haven't even made it to the back until now!  I knew Brandon had the day free as well, and asked if he would come out to the school and help me.  He waffled around before giving me an answer, so I let him off the hook, but I was a little bummed that he didn't want to come.  Little did I know, he had other plans for the day . . .

That afternoon, after an entire day spent cleaning, dusting, sneezing and organizing, I came home feeling pretty accomplished and a little proud of myself for tackling that monster on my own.  What I found was a husband who shared a few of those feelings himself!  While I was gone, he and his parents worked their magic in our living room and breakfast area and hung up the curtains that we finally (after a year and a half of living here) bought!!    What a great surprise!  I love having a husband that takes initiative and finds little things like this to surprise me with!  I love him so much!!

It looks great - exactly the kind of look I've been wanting to acheive in there!  See for yourself!  (Curtains - Ikea, curtain rods and rings - Lowe's)
