Hi everyone!

So much has been happening over in our neck of the woods. First, my daughter turned 1!  Man, it feels as though I blinked and that she went from a baby to now a full fledged toddler!  We had a "Sweet Shop" themed party and I enjoyed all the party planning aspects of the event.   Below, is a picture of the yummy and awesome cake that my neighbor, Alicia Baker made.  Alicia is not a professional baker, but from the taste and the look of this cake, I think she needs to go into business.

Our floors were replaced last Thursday. Although the creaking is gone, the process of  ripping up the floors was a pain!  I am most annoyed that now I have to show how baseboards are cracked, walls are dinged, and I also have glue on my new floors.  It makes me think that had Ryan did the floors right in the first place we could have all avoided this drama.

Now, we're onto the next issue, seam work.  We have bumpy ceilings, walls, and some cracked areas where  the metal framing is poking through the drywall. We are scheduled to start the work next week. I hear the dust is a pain in the butt!  I guess I will need to get a cleaning crew out again to handle the clean up.

Onto better news--the rooms that don't need work done--the dining room and the office are currently being painted and we're having molding added to them too. Once it is finished I will add pics!

Still is a new table for our foyer that I ordered from West Elm.  I also found the fun shaped latern from you guessed it, HomeGoods!
