more boring house stuff, sorry.

Look, it the cute boys!

Okay, it has been forever since I let myself blog about the house, but I can't hold out any longer.  I want to talk about tile.  I know there are others like myself.  You know who you are.  Those of you who can fall in love with tile.  Yes, it is true.  I love the back splash tile in the big bathroom.  It is beautiful. 

It is a porcelain tile that is matte white.  It is so very old school, but with white grout, it looks so very modern and pretty.  I CAN'T sew with inferior materials, and I have noticed, that goes for home building materials as well.  Thank goodness for classifieds.  I have aquired some very quality stuff for a song.  Without them, this house would be nothing.  (Yes, too much drama.  Really, without my Dad and an understanding husband, this house would be nothing.)

There is just too many things I could talk about with the progress of the house, but these are my high points.  The bathroom is really to be put together and the kitchen counter is finally tiled, grouted, and sealed.  This picture is the first meal at the bar.... ever.  Pretty significant step for all of us.  It has been a very long road to get to this point. 

I can't say enough about how enjoyable this process has been.  I have really learned so many things.  I know I know nothing, but I think the point is, I know how to learn how to do it now.  Ha, I dare you follow that logic!

The bathroom looks so nice! I like the hexagonal tile and the floor tile looks good too. How exciting to eat at the bar. :) Thanks for sharing your happenings!
