Floors! Floors! Everywhere!

We had a great weekend here at home and had the pleasure of keeping our two nieces so that their “mommy & daddy” could go to Auburn to watch the Tigers win! Morgan and Paige love their cousins and the girls are welcome back anytime. Friday night I thoroughly enjoyed myself at “Girls Night Out” with 10 ladies from church! We had a wonderful dinner and watched The Devil Wears Prada. It was great to get out of the house and actually stay up late. If you know me well at all, you know I have a hard time staying awake past 9… you’ll be delighted to know that I managed to stay awake during the whole movie! It was a very cute “girlie” flick! Here is a picture of my nieces. Paisely (left) and Penelope (aka “Nellie”). They were great house guests and only ate one smores granola bar! 🙂

The floors are all FINISHED and look fabulous! They’re a little dusty as the dust seems to still be settling from all the grinding they had to do on the high parts of the slab. We are very pleased and they even cut us a huge deal! I’m not sure if they felt sorry for us after all the debating over whether or not to keep the terrazzo to save money or if it was just out of the kindness of their hearts! We do know it wasn’t a mistake (Justin questioned him on the bill) and for that we are very grateful! They were super nice guys and very patient with us! Here are a few pictures! Now, we have to hop on getting all the shoe molding down and start crank on that kitchen… it will be time to move in before we know it!!

I knew he’d smile when they were all said and done!

Sewing room/Office… but the blue counters are going to go… I changed my mind

They are building a really small (8,000 sq ft) house next door… at least it won’t be a bad view

A good decision to put wood in all 4 rooms!

And last but not least the rooms that caused us much grief! I’m very relieved to see the wood throughout!

    D- thank you so much for the pumpkin roll at the tailgate! You were sorely missed, but that definitely softened the blow! I copied the recipe and I’m going to make it for my family coming in town for Ford’s birthday. The house sure is looking beautiful. I don’t think you’ll regret putting the floors throughout. What are y’all doing for Morgan’s birthday?

    The frames can be found in exciting colors such as jade, along with additional traditional colors like black and
    burgundy. It’s hard to find a thing that someone wants, and wants most in the same moment.

    Then again, prior to choosing from the amount of the loan, you should also
    keep in your mind high APR connected with the short-term loans no credit check needed.
