1.) Alyssa and I shop were supposed to go shopping for Jeff's birthday gift. However, we never made it to the store. We left the house late afternoon. His birthday is next week and we thought we would surprise him with an unexpected gift. I will most likely purchase the Hobbit movie as a gift and he really needs some work t-shirts. I will hopefully make a trip into town at the beginning of the week.
2.) We went straight to the house because it was already getting late. I brought a load of boxes to store in the shed. I also brought rock samples for the fireplace. We are not very fond of it so we'll continue searching for the "right" rock or brick that suits our style and will accent the wall color. My hubby told me the other day that we have a problem with our kitchen countertop order. We were originally told that they would be installed the third week of April. For some odd reason, the date was pushed until May 8th which changes everything including our closing date, moving plans, vacation plans, and my review and blog schedule. They also sent us the wrong pantry door so we installed a regular white door which seems to lighten the corner a bit. I know that everything happens for a reason. This schedule conflict does give us more time to finish up the classroom which was put on the back burner. It looks like we'll be moving items in and setting up the classroom first since we can't move into the house until after the closing date.

Ignore the dust covered floor and cabinets - they are still working.

My first double oven! Yah!

There's plenty of space for visitors to sit and visit.

Accidental cut in the wall will eventually be covered with tile.

I would love for you to check out my House Projects Pinterest board. In fact take a look around you may see something on my other Pinterest boards you want to pin. Please let me know which board you find most useful.
5.) Alyssa lost her first tooth on Wednesday. This was a very emotional experience. She made the decision to keep her tooth. She almost put it under her pillow last night, but then started getting teary-eyed. I told her to wait and if she decided to keep it - it was her choice. Here is the link to my FREE Dental Apps and Questioning the Tooth Fairy post which tells you a little about my daughter's story of losing her first tooth. It is hard to see, but when looking at this picture, she lost the top left front tooth. Be sure to check out my post because I have provided links to the FREE dental apps. I am not sure how long these apps will be free or if they are always free.
