Special Order!

After much flooring style, color, dimension debates. . .We agreed to get special order flooring for our half bath. The square footage wasn't very big and it let me get the flooring that I fell in love with.

Yes, I know that sentence isn't grammatically correct.
I'm okay with that! :)

Learning Something New. . .

When MaBell asked me to do her hair for prom, I wasn't too worried. I did her hair for a few other dances in the past. We talked about a simple style - kinda Egyptian looking to go with her jewelry. . . Down with part straight, part curly.

The picture I was shown days before the event was definitely not simple. And it definitely wasn't down.

But, I crossed my fingers (and my toes), said a few (okay, a lot) of prayers and dived in.

The result?
If you look real close, you'll see one of the three braids that I put into the do. . .

In the end, I learned how to do something new.
Now, to see if I can learn how to do it faster next time!

And it's late and the hardware store will be closing in 10 minutes. . .
And you live 25 minutes from the hardware store. . .

You have to get creative to get the job done!

Spoiled Kitty?

You mean that all cats don't get filtered, running water?

No way!
Don't look at the wall - we're still remodeling that room! :)
