Homey touches

WELL…I’m a year older today and we’re all still alive and now the days are starting to get lighter and longer every day!!!  Lots of things to be happy about!  I had a wonderful birthday!  I feel overwhelmed with thankfulness for my friends and family!  What would I do without them?  Here are several pictures of the day.

Our 3rd annual birthday run.  Rain, snow, wind, cold, or shine (hardly) we run on my birthday!

We’re thinking of flooring ideas for the entryway and a section of our great room.  I’ve been so pleased with the tile and carpet in our current home that I want the same thing for our new home.  The entryway will be chocolate brown travertine tile like this:

51TTW-82MQL._SL500_AA300_And the carpet we will use is LEE’S.  I will never buy anything else.  I looked online and they sell it at Carpet One.  We’ve had the carpet in our upstairs now for 11 years and it looks better than any other carpet in the house and it’s in a very high traffic area.  IT IS THE BEST CARPET EVER!!


Someday…I love this living room.  I think we want to do something similar to our fireplace.  Our living and dining room have tons of windows with trees outside that I LOVE!!  Lots of work to do!  For my workout today I even helped out a little!  I moved about 25 boxes of food storage to the new house!

It’s a great adventure and will be so beautiful very soon!!  Warmest, Happiest, holiday wishes!
