The wood ninjas are here!

Yay..........the wood ninjas are here! My new hardwood floor is being installed today :) I am extremely excited!

We've Einstein and my Dad have made so much progress this past week on the house it's unbelievable! The best part about the wood ninjas being here, other than that the new floors will be done, is that it gives Einstein a mini vacation from it all. We can't be on the floors for a few days while they dry. Which means we can eat dinner together, get stuff done around the apartment, and go to bed at a decent time for a few days :)

My Dad finished painting the main floor of the house yesterday (remember, it's a raised ranch). The only things left to paint are the doors (when we get them) and all of the moldings/trim.

Here's the painted hall:
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Navajo White
And the living room:
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Navajo White
And the dining room:
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Navajo White
And the kitchen (that's one of the cabinets that will eventually go in):
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Chamois
And here is a sample of the granite that will be our countertop:And, the best thing that was done yesterday...............the tiled front entrance, and some tile in the bathroom! Einstein did an awesome job!

I know you're all probably bored with my house project posts. But it's pretty much all that's going on in our world right now. (Well we've got some other projects going on too but I'll fill you in on those later.) The house stuff takes up all of the time right now :) If you made it through this post..............thanks!

Maaaaaaarrrrrrrryyyyyy!!! Maaaare? MLG, YOU ANSWER ME THIS INSTANT!!!

HAHA...I know you're busy and such, but I'm still missing you so bad! Between you, Amy JEAN Kelly and Lisa--YOU ARE ALL SILENT!!!--I am going through Boston Girl withdrawal.

I do, however, understand. It is a crazy busy time right now. Just know I miss you--all three of you!

Mary - things look AWESOME. Well as busy as you are right now, you still had time to bust me. Thanks for that post. I don't even remember some of those pics!!!

Oh and I forgot you had the crush on him. I thought it was Uncle Buck (another one of Quincy's finest or not so....) Do you know who I mean?

I am off to bed now because Trouble will be calling my name real soon!

Looks great! Doesn't Ben Moore have THE best paint? When we bought our house, we named it the "Sheet Hole Mansion". Finally we have it where we want it! Enjoy your projects, they make you even more proud of your home!

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
