Life finally back to normal!

I have been so busy for the last 10 days with family in town and home renovations! We spent most of our time close to home, but did take the nephews to Disneyland for their first time! (The pic above is of hubby and I in front of the enchanted castle!) It was a crazy day to say the least. I dropped my digital camera and destroyed the screen, and we almost witnessed a fist fight in Mickeys house, but all in all it was a fun and nostaligic day!

My brother-in-law is a whiz when it comes to construction so we squeezed every last bit of help out of him that we could! I am so excited about the new improvements that we made! Our little house is really coming along! Hubby and I have always done our own work in the places that we live. Being of a design orientation we have big dreams for our 1955 architechture, and slowly but surely we are now making progress. Although I have to say, I have had my fill for a while!

Here is a quick pic of our 1970s rock fireplace, before (above) and after (below). We have only gotten the chance to put up the first coat of primer, but what a difference already! Hopefully next weekend we will hopefully get that sucker painted!

Just loving the idea of a fist-fight in Mickey's house.
