It seems like I just put up the decorations and here it is already Dec. 23rd, how did that happen? I swear, the older I get the faster time flys(woo, did that just come out of my mouth, sounds like mom).
Anyway, I think I'm ready, all the shopping is done, the baking is finished, just wish we had some snow, nothing today but dreary drizzley rain. Guess it's a good day to do some last minute cleaning and maybe I will throw together some sock puppies for the boys.
Thought I would show off my redone fireplace, I just wish I had remembered to take a real before picture, but this will have to do. This is half way through the project. Their was nothing actually wrong with the fireplace surround, I just didn't like it. We bought a new("plastic") house because DH isn't real handy and he didn't want to have to worry about the upkeep of an old house(Maybe when the kids are grown I can convince him). So for now, I have to "old up" my new house. THe fireplace was a pink and gray granite tile with white painted wood. I wanted brick with a different paint. I ended up choosing Old Village's pearwood color and I love it. DH knocked out the bottom granite for me and I did the rest, all the brickwork and mortor are done by me. What do you think?
