Apparently I’ve taken too much of a break from giving updates out and people want more! I hate to break it to you, but as exciting and entertaining as these are to read…our lives just aren’t that exciting…I mean, I’m pretty sure you aren’t too interested in how our Fantasy Football Season is going or how long I swept the floor on Tuesday (but just in case you are, it was 3 hours. Three.)
BUT – having said all of that, I now provide you with – – – An Update.
So, here you have the view from outside of the garage looking into the house. You’ll see the stairs on the right (the front door is across from them) and the great room is on the left, with the kitchen/morning room straight back.
This is the great room from the kitchen. We have a fireplace! Side note – Did you know this house did not come with this fireplace? Did you know we had to pay for a fireplace? Did you know it has gotten down to the teens (and sometimes below that) in the winter? Santa does NOT use the front door, builders. Santa comes down the chimney. I know at some point I’d be put in the position to explain how Santa gets in our house if we don’t have a fireplace. And where the heck would the stockings go? As long as no one notices the ‘chimney’ is very tiny:
Thanks to Roberts uncanny ability to notice anything that is done incorrectly/out of place/not perfect, we noticed this crack in our shower stall from the installers (it’s about an inch to the left of the far-right flash reflection). Thanks guys. Now they have to order a new one to replace it. Better now than later. I hope they are more careful with the next one.
That is about all the new stuff as far as the house goes. I’m hoping we get our brick and siding next week, which will bring more pictures and more updates!
As far as the wedding goes, not much has progressed since the last postings about it. I’ve put more thought into bridesmaid dresses and have thought about reserving blocks of rooms at hotels, but I think I’m being lazy (or I’m legitimately tired…) and haven’t done any of it yet. At least we’ve got the locations and I’ve got the dress. The two most important things, right??
Check back soon 🙂
