Post Black Friday

Well we survived turkey day and Black Friday ince again! I was smart this year and did all my shopping online! Only thing I missed was the sale at Sears when their site crashed! I was just going to order some new bras for me but that's ok. They're always on sale anyways so no biggy..LOL

We did go to Lowes and picked up our new sink- we went with a pedistal one so I can roll under it, also got all the new faucets for shower and sink. The sink one is coool! Reminds me of an old hand water pump on the farm. It's a burnished bronze- all the faucets are-
pretty cool huh?
Sink - this is the style but ours is the same finish as the shower head.It's SOO purdy!

So things are coming along alsow but sure. Today we're going to finish tearing out the sink vanity and begin ripping out the door and hallway closets. Doors are all off now so we're ready to rip and tear! Hardest part has been colors. What colors to go with. At least we have the base started with the faucets. Tile will have to match- sink is white as it would have cost us another $80 or so to go with a colored sink. Ugh! Oh well..we can live with white. OH! Let me get the sink pic too! I think we MIGHT put some kind of wood behind the sink area- kind of laminate flooring type stuff to give a rustic look the area since the faucet looks rustic. What do you all think? yes? no? maybe? Here is the page with the sink - click to enlarge it on the site so you can get a closer look. http://

Sat. Busyness

We have a HUGE project coming! We discovered a HUGE leak in our main bathroom after we had a plumber come fix our tub leak on Thurs, Seems it's been leaking under the main shower for awhile...the insurance adjuster will be out Monday AM to see how much damage is done. I have a feeling it's alot as the water seeps under the hall closet(which backs the main bath) as well into our bedroom. Jon said there is like a 4 ft space of wet carpet at least. SO we have lots of work ahead! Of course in the interim it'll be a good time to haul junk out we've been holding onto forever! My biggest concern is my grandma's cedar chest got wet. It's up against the bathroom wall holding our TV in the bedroom. I SO hope it's ok....Once we find out how much we're covered for then we can look for a contractor to begin the work...we'll have to take out the shower enclosure too to see what damage is done- HOPE there is no mold...then when we redo it we'll just do a whole remodel and make it a roll in shower for me, take out the linen closet and put it in the bathroom then make the doorway wider so I can get my chair in there, think we'll also make the sink adaptable so I can roll right under it as well. It's a bad thing to happen but a good thing too. Just sucky timing right before the holidays! Merry Christmas to us! Will be sure and take pics as we can.

On to happier things- I'm now on 5 CT's! Am I nuts, you ask? Kinda looks like it huh? LOL. I LOVE all my designers tho so it's all good! With all the house going ons I'm a tad behind but have managed to get some pages done this week in between the flooding and PT for my shoulder which is going ok. I sure do hurt some days!

Some LO's I posted this week. This one is of our friends little guy and his new bike.
