Borscht and Painting…

Every Tuesday night since last Fall, our group of friends has dinner together which is a tradition that I really love! We often have themed nights and yesterday was proclaimed Russian night. Whitney spent her childhood in Russia so she made Borscht, potato rolls and a garlic cheese spread for us to enjoy.

Those rolls stuffed with sauteed potatoes and onions were so de-lish!

After dinner the boys headed off to play basketball (just like every Tuesday) while the ladies stayed at Whitney and Jonathan’s house to do a serious kitchen cabinet makeover!

All the cabinet doors after their first coat of paint. They have one more coat to go and then a gloss.

Even our paintbrushes are friends! πŸ˜€

Aaaand it is possible that I might be a messy painter. I am really bad about wiping things up with my fingers instead of using a rag, haha!

Speaking of painting… tonight Christopher and I plan to finish painting the outside windows at our house so it won’t be long before I’m covered in white paint too, haha!
