Wild Wild West

We just returned from a long weekend trip to Arizona!

And let me tell you, this time of year is perfect!

Our quick visit was to help our dear friends celebrate their marriage!
And who doesn't love a good party?

The big day!

Meet the new addition

to our family.....

Miss Libby Rose!

The few hours leading up to her arrival were spent texting.....


making each other smile,


playing quarters (a very fun made up game for children under 5 and adults over 33) 


and finding each other's nose.

Libby and mom are doing great!

I love this ......


In the words of my dear friend,
 I am very good at finding things that I love...(and) that I can't afford!!!

Have a great weekend!

Speaking of changes....

I would like to show you our master bath!
(please, excuse the quality.  they were taken with my phone.)

It has gone through a few phases....

This is what we like to call phase 1 or pre-demolition.

Now we advance to phase 2, the actual demolition. 

Have I mentioned our neighbors love us :)

after sawing the tub in half!

Stage 3, the clean up phase.

The 1949 newspaper found under the tub!

our fabulous cast iron tub!

And currently, stage 4.  The bare bones stage!

The new looks adds character.  Don't you agree?

And the winner is.....

Remember this room?

It was/is in desperate need of a fresh and updated look.

I decided a fresh coat of paint might be the key to starting this little transformation process. 

27 samples later, I found our winner.......

Martha Stewart's Bedford Gray

I had the paint; I had the helpers (????)....

and finally, I had the finished product.


 Mark your calendars! 
The Fireplace Renewal Project of 2011 is slated to begin on November 7th!!!
