And when she DID know what to expect

Steve had his hands full of Payton so missed the zoom, but what you didn't see is that I actually went up on stage and tried to get her to go back over there and dance with the other kids with me. She wasn't interested so I didn't make her. hee hee. Steve joked that I should have taken off her headband, put it on, and finished the song on my own. Whatever.

I think next year will be easier when I'm not standing right there. Once she's with the older kids, she waits backstage behind the curtains and I'm just in the audience. I think I was too much of a crutch for her. She was spooked the first night so it was hard enough getting her to line up with the other girls the second night. We thought it might be easier for her if she walked out with Miss Amber, but obviously, once the music came on, she was NOT interested. lol

When she didn't know what to expect......

Open for Business!

Finally! Something is finished in my home! And it's gorgeous! And Steve did the whole thing by himself! I couldn't be more proud. And now, a tour:

This is our double sink. Purchased at Costco. It's a very dark brown. It has lots of drawers and many of them are those non-slamming kind that pull themselves in. Very cool.

Steve tiled the back splash with the same tile as our shower. I found two matching windows at the antique store and we backed them with mirror. They are so cool.

Oil rubbed bronze hardware. Yum.

Me. See? The mirror doesn't look too weird with the six panes of mirror in it. See the cool latches on the bottom and the chipped shabby white paint? Love it.

We put this fancy heat mat under the floor tiles. Now we can set the temperature, and when Grammabon stays with us in the wintertime, her toesies will be all nice and toasty when she gets out of the shower, rather than walking on cold tile. Fancy schmancy.

The shower and the fancy man in charge. He's sitting on the seat, lol. He tiled it and put in the shower floor. And he has a little sidekick too.

And what a cute sidekick she is!

Shower seat and floor. The floor is little river rocks. It's lumpy and bumpy so you won't slip, and feels kinda like a foot massage as you are walking around in it.

So that's it! One fantabulous bathroom that is ready for visitors! So exicting!

True North

Check out my June/July article! I am helping to distribute a little bit in Redmond, so I have a box or two of the magazines, and it is FABULOUS. So honored to be a part of it all.

That's Steve's Father's Day card too! :)
