all in a day's work

Last night we had our friends Stu & Jacque over for dinner & games. Here's a shot of Finn trying to play Halo on Kenton's Xbox. :) He's a mini-Kenton in the making...

Finn & Jacque playing with shiney gold pipe cleaners.
Finn found them in a craft drawer the other day & can't leave them alone. So they've been scattered throughout the house & found in random hiding places. Jacque had a hard time leaving them alone too. They're just so fun to bend & mold! :P

And today, we tackled a big project: our bathroom counter/sink/faucet/backsplash:

Here's the before shot of what the sink & counter used to be. We had painted the cabinets when we moved in 2 1/2 years ago, but decided the leave the counters as they were for the time being. Now, the time has come as we near the date that we're planning on putting our house on the market (July 1st, we hope!)

I keep saying "we" but the only part I played in the whole project was to keep Finn away from the action. I didn't even do a very good job at that! :) Kenton's dad, Kevin, was a huge help & they managed to complete the job with only 2 (or 3?) trips to Jerry's Home Improvement!

I did get to help Kenton with the tiles. Finn napped for over 3 hours, so we were able to get the final touches done before he woke up.

Here are some "after" shots; the grout still needs to be done on the tiles but we have to let the glue dry for 24 hours or something...

I went shopping for a new rug & shower curtain that match a little better. The rug looks really cute, but the shower curtain had a hidden sea shell pattern & shell beads across it. I couldn't handle it, so I'll be shopping again tomorrow. :)

i like your new sink and countertop. it looks pretty nice. i bet that it was definitely a chore to keep finn busy during that one!

thanks for having us over this weekend. it was a lot of fun and i was pretty obsessed with that gold pipe cleaner...i bought stu that bbg yesterday so i think that next time we hang out, we should do it over here and we can bbq. hopefully the weather will be nice!
