{Re} Painted Stairs

When we first moved in our stairs looked like this:

After I ripped the carpet off the stairs, I painted them:

They were starting to look a little shabby, so I decided to paint them again.  Don't be mad at me....I painted them months ago, like before Oliver was even born!!

When we built the barn door baby gate, the little stairs looked even worse.

The whole front edge had rubbed off.  blah.

I decided to paint them gray...only problem is that it is just slightly off of the wall color.  Making the dining room and kitchen look a little drab.  Floor and wall matching is a no no for me.
I painted it anyway and just went with it :)  Which means once again, I will be changing it up again!

Here are the pics before I change it again!! :)

A clue on the new changes.....brown paint, this rug from urban outfitters,

and inspiration from this picture.

Did you figure out what I'm doing?!?  Didya, huh?

new dining chairs....oh my ;)

I am giddy like a school girl over my new chairs!!

I bought them from here.  They are glorious!  I. Am. In. Love. If I weren't already married, I would marry these chairs.   (love you honey!)

I will take a pic of them in my dining room sometime this week.  Right now I am in the middle of redoing an armoire in there and it's a freaking mess.  :)

I lost me 7.5 lbs last week!!
I was going to start 30 Day Shred today, but alas we are rocking a sick family these days!

Losing an elephant penis.....

a bald eagle, and a guinea pig.  Sounds like the beginning of a good joke! :)

I found this on Pinterest:

Puts it in to perspective in a mildly entertaining way!!
That's right, I am hoping to lose 73 lbs this year.  F that, I am going to lose them this year!  Like we're going to play hide and seek and I am going to neglect them and not find them again, like EVER!

Mr. TSL and I have had many surprises in our lives and we have decided that the most spectacular 4 surprises will be our only 4 surprises :)  No more babies up in here. They all gonna make me lose my mind, up in here, up in here....sorry I was jammin.

Anywho, now that I am done having babies it's time for me to get my shit straight!

I will drag you on my journey with me and promise to be a better blogger this year!  I super sucked at the blogging thing last year.  I was a little pre-occupied.  2 year old and a new babysitting for a little extra dough.  I got some kick ass projects done, but lacked bloggy time for it.  To tell you the truth, I lacked motivation to write about them too, not just time.

Follow my Project Fat Ass board on Pinterest or if you are up for it follow all my boards...then maybe you can figure out what knock off project I'll make next and we can totally be besties! :)

If you are still reading my blog after almost a year of wishy washy crappy posts, you mother f-ing rock!  If you're not, well then you aren't reading this one either.  Unless you were like Elephant Penis, what?!?!

Back to Project Fat Ass....  I'll keep you updated hopefully weekly on my weight loss.  If I give myself a time frame on the weight loss I am destined to fail.  I am an all or nothing kind of girl.
