It's About Time

Marc and Kris were here this past weekend and I've got to show you what we did...........
Kris said she had been waiting 14 years to do this!

I don't know who took this picture-- I just saw it when I loaded the pictures on the computer!

Mike and Marc hard at work-- what a difference already....

Yes, it was time for the wallpaper to go

The end result of Saturday's work

Sunday morning Mike installed the new light fixture I got at IKEA.  The hole in the ceiling is bigger than the light fixture so it is just up there temporarily and we have to adjust the length of the chain, but we have an idea of how it will look.  Now, I just have to make a final decision on paint color (it will be a neuteral tan-ish color).

Kris has already marked my calendar to come back and start in the dining room--- I'm excited to actually have started a project Mike and I have been talking about for at least two years now.

We had a great time while they were here. Marc and Kris went to campus on Thursday and explored the remodeled Thompson Theater- I think it was a bit sad for them, it is no longer the theater where they went to school and met and got engaged.  We had dinner at On the Border (one of Kris' favorite and not available in Myrtle Beach).  Kris and I got pedicures-- love the hot rock leg massages and had a nice relaxing lunch on Friday. Then Friday and Saturday nights they were able to connect with old friends.  We're looking forward to seeing them again in a couple of weeks.

More to come later.....

Question for my blogging friends--- WHY doesn't my post look the same when I post it as it does when I look at the preview screen while I am writing it?????????????  The big spaces between pictures don't show up until I publish the post...... HMMMMMMMMM

  1. Love what you've done! I can't wait to see how it all comes together.

    I had the same problem with my posts in the beginning with the large spaces. It may be one of two things. You may be using the older version of blogger. I can show you how to get the upgraded one (no charge.. just a simple click). If it isn't that, your next step is to use "preview post" before you actually post it. This way you can really see what it's going to look like and make any adjustments. It was all trial and error for me to figure these things out. :)
