Here are our ideas. Chad really wants get new mid-gray to dark gray carpet, that's less shaggy, because this stuff has lots of stains, and Chad hates it now. I'm hesitant about the dark gray. There are stain-proof carpets, but I wonder how stain-proof they really are. We want carpet, but something that can withstand the dogs and Jet.
I really want to paint this wall (fireplace wall) charcoal gray. I would LOVE to do chalkboard paint and draw cool frames and stuff in chalk, but then I have an idea for the other walls, and it would be too much.
We don't like the color of the tiles. Dingy. But there is nothing we can do about those. Wish they were white. Ol' well.
On these walls (the one with the tv, and the wall perpendicular to it) I was thinking of doing large horizontal stripes, in a light gray. But then I also like the idea of doing horizontal striped curtains, and that's just too over the top.
So, I invited you to my pinterest...but I don't know how it works. I just want you to see my inspiration boards, so if you need my username and password, let me know. I'm loving charcoal lately. SO PRETTY. I love the mustardy, muted light yellow that's going on right now. I like black and white. Anyway, it's just so much easier if you see my boards.
If anyone else has any ideas, bring 'em on.

Jet was the BIG BAD Wolf, Chad was the Woodcutter, and I was Little Red Riding Hood. At first, Jet was just a bad wolf, because he didn't want to wear his tail or hat. I have learned that he doesn't like fur. Whoops, bad costume choice! I worked around it. We tried to sneakily pin his tail on, but he caught us, and said "Tail, Tail, Tail" in a sad voice all the way to the church. Once the games started rolling, he finally just had fun.
Detering Orchards. We always went here as a family when I was little, so it was so awesome going with my parents after so many years. LOVED IT!
It was such a great weekend!
