Just another shot of the kitchen because I love it so much... :)

And I wasted 15 minutes the other day hanging the curtains in the master bedroom.  Yep. I went with purple. I know it's not required for occupancy, but it makes me feel good...

More stone work

Today was my lucky day. Ken had a cancellation and was able to do the little wall on the peninsula that was getting scuffed up from feet on the barstools. Not only will it eliminate the scuffing, it adds such a cool look to the whole area. I can't believe this is really my home.

Fireplace surround, day 2

Ken came back today to finish up the bottom part of the fireplace under the hearth. As the grout dries and the water evaporates from the stones, you can see the contrast between them and it all ties together beautifully. Almost like we knew what we were doing. Or dumb luck. Whatever... We have a gorgeous fireplace  and that's all that matters. :)

Fireplace surround

I can't express what a wonderful feeling it is to have someone who knows what they're doing working on the stone fireplace surround. 

This is what it looked like when we left for Matt's Halloween party:

And this is what we returned home to:
Ken will be back on Sunday to do under the hearth.
I am speechless. It's just amazing.

Homecoming and girls

Amanda went to homecoming with friends this year and they came over to get ready together. So Tom and I went to Lowes and got some mirrors for the master bathroom because three girls getting ready for Homecoming will require mirrors. 
Doing hair:
Doing make-up:
And three beautiful girls ready for the ball:

Then there's the aftermath:

But the mirrors are set and the mess can be cleaned up.

Preparing for carpet...

While 3 shots of Fireball before painting molding *sounds* like a good idea... To quote Fat Amy, "mmmmm... Better not.".
I'm going to bed now... :)
