House Update

I'm so sorry that I have been MIA for a few days. My computer has been down AGAIN!! Life has been hectic with trying to wrap up all decisions with the house. They have been painting, the drywallers have been fixing the nicks in the walls, they put the stone fireplace in and the cabinet guy has been trying to put all the final touches on the cabinet doors, trim, etc. The painters will be back in again next week to put the final coats of paint on and the tile man will be laying the tile in the master bath, guest bath and laundry room. We are getting so close I can almost taste it!! On another happy note, my parents are coming for a visit:) They are bringing me boxes of my stuff from their attic. Yuck!! More boxes, just what I need. I can't wait to see what I might find in there, though. Old cheerleading uniforms, Judy Blume books and love letters from my husband from elementary school days (we met at church camp and he used to write me letters) are some of the things that I suspect I will find. It should be fun going through all of the old memories!!



Our fireplace- I LOVE IT!!
The tile for our master bath floor, tub surround and shower
The lighting must have been bad in the kitchen because the walls are actually a softer terra cotta color than what this looks like.
The pantry/laundry room
My upstairs office- funny lighting again
The shutters
Our bedroom-lots of drywall touch ups

Oh, I'm so excited for you! I've been waiting on pins and needles to see how you've feathered your nest. The stone fireplace looks wonderful - what a focal point! And the wall colors are just awesome. I love them. You're doing a great job, L.A. Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel?

I love the fireplace but... is it ever cold enough for you to use it?? Seriously, it looks great. When are you thinking it might be ready for you to move in?
