No thanks tax-free weekend

Today after church we decided it would be a good idea to get our girl some new school shoes. Whoa--did you go out in the craziness that some refer to as "tax-free weekend?" I'm talking extreme craziness here. I told my sister tonight that I would rather pay double tax than go through that craziness again! Well...we did get some new school shoes...
and we also got some free waffle coupons from Waffle House--that almost made it worth the trouble of fighting the crowds/traffic/craziness. Waffle House had a booth set up collecting donations for breast cancer-nice! The kids got some lemonade and awesome hats too!
Our girl also got a new headband for school. She said she was going to sleep with it tonight, but she forgot it.

This weekend we also had to re-evaluate the green apple paint in the kitchen. It made you say whoa every time you saw it...so we changed it to Behr's Grass Cloth green. Here's Hubby painting the grass cloth over the green apple:
Here's how it looks now...not as shocking..and goes with our cabinets more...so we're not as in as big of a rush to re-do them now. I'll post some pics with the curtains back up soon.
Hubby also completed painting the family room:
Now...off to iron and get ready for the 1st day of school. Whoa-goodbye summer!
