Floors, paint & stamps...oh my!

I love you guys!!!! I had no idea when I posted my last little blurb how many of you 1) were still around and 2) are so fabulous and wonderful. Thank you all very much for your well wishes, it is my goal to start making time for myself and my health. We get cable next weekend (whoo hooo!) and my sister made me promise to TiVo the Yoga channel and do the easy stretches at least 3 times a week. There is no way to eliminate stress out of your life but you can take 30 minutes a few times a week and try to help your body cope with it, right? And even though I prefer ice cream therapy, my growing jean size would like to see me quit. LMAO

Ok so here are some pics from the house, since I know you're all dying to see what we've done thus far. I'll be taking more as we go, I just had these on my camera card and FINALLY got over to my sisters house so I could put them up on here to show you!

Here's the large family room, this area was all carpet which then transitioned into linoleum in the kitchen to the right. We put this tile flooring throughout most of the house, hallway and bathrooms. Now only the formal living and master bedroom have carpet. Walls were nasty beige so we changed it to a soft custard yellow with white trim. All new baseboards as well...they are 6" and I love them!Here is the laminate flooring that I DID in my stamp room (it will go in the guest bedroom as well).

We've also done the laundry room, guest bath & master bedroom but I didn't have any pics on my camera from that so I'll have to take some. I did have a fabulous weekend of friends, family and I even managed to squeeze in a little stamp time! More to come this week as we head into a 3-day weekend. Anyone have any grand plans coming up?!?!

XOXO

I'm so glad you're back and on the mend! Wow!! What a great job you guys did on your flooring! It looks great! I LOVE your stamping room.

I'm on vacation for the next couple of weeks and my goal is to get the house cleaned up (including the stamp room) and do some stamping.

OMG! I'm totally jealous of your stamp space! It looks just beautiful - I wish you many happy hours of stamping! We're heading to the shore for last licks on the beach before school starts. Hope you have a great weekend!
