so we went for a break this past weekend to great falls, montana. it was so nice to just get away from the disasterous mess our house is in.
but its all getting better.
we left the painter to do his thing on friday. and we returned to a totally new house! what a difference!
the crappy thing is i can't even take any pictures at the moment, as the weather has been gross and cloudy since we got home on monday. (we don't have many light fixtures up, and none in the new part of the house) i'm never sure about choosing paint colors, but i am very pleased with the green and brown that i chose.
the painter we had in was just a hoot. he's probably in his early 50's, and serenaded us with christmas carols all day. the funniest part was that he really didn't know the words to any of them.
but he worked like a man on a mission, and spent most of the weekend here as well. and it was done on time, as he had promised.
our flooring guy starts tomorrow, and it will be so nice to have the 33 boxes of hardwood out of the way. they're sitting in the kitchen at the moment, and as much as they're not in the way, they take up alot of room!
so, as soon as the weather clears up (its looking like it will be the weekend before it does) i'll post some pictures!
as for our weekend away, friends of our actually were the ones to suggest going. we weren't planning on heading south until the fall for a shopping trip, but this was a great little getaway. we didn't find too many sales on, but we also didn't know that it wasn't a long weekend in the states as it was here. we did manage to find some floor tile for our entry and by the fireplace, and we are quite happy with it. brought home quite a few grocery items that we like, and that we just can't get here. and that was about it. walked alot, and had a great time just hanging out.
so i think that's it for now, have a great day!
