all done

So, after a loooong week (and a bit) our floors are done. The carpet, too. I had to take a picture this morning while everything was clean and swept and vaccumed...just to prove that once in a blue moon my house is clean. (even if it only last for a few minutes!) I love how they turned out. I had it in my head that I wanted dark floors and I'm so glad we went with it. And the carpet is soooo awesome...just totally soft and comfy. I love it!! The house feels totally different now. It's definately starting to feel more like "us"...moving is such a long process. We've been here for 6 months, and it's just been the past couple that this has felt like "home". So I'm happy.

And a new addition to my kitchen:

I found these jars at Walmart and had to get them, even though I had no idea what I was going to do with them. So yesterday I filled them with (fake) fruit, and voila! A new kitchen decoration. I love the bright colors and the black lids.

So, I'm hoping life will get back to normal now that all of this house stuff is done and over with. I just don't do well when my house is a disaster, so I think this afternoon I'll just recover by taking a nap (heehee). We'll see if the kids let me. I'm sure they won't, but it's worth a shot!

Wish me luck!!

Love the floor. Your home is always very nice. It would be sad if our homes were always spotless and totally organized. That would mean we're spending way too much time cleaning instead of time as a family. :)

Hope you got your nap.

Cute. I love the jars. I totally just bought a big ol'one just like it- but with a silver lid- at Target. Who knew Walmart had them too. I might have to check it out for more sizes. So fun!

Love your new floors! What is the name of the wood and where did you purchase it? Also what is the name of the color of paint on the walls? And the big "a" ~ love it, where did you purchase it? Can you tell I'm envious??
