Lots to talk about!!

Okay I have about an hour to spare!! I am on spring break but I have been so busy it has been unreal! Good news!! Baby Isabella is here!!! She was born on March 10 and was in the NICU for about a week and she was able to come home two days ago. She is so adorable and has a FULL head of hair! It looks like she has a wig on! It is hilarious! She is only about 6 pounds right now, so it is so different from John. He is so big already, almost 15 pounds, crazy! Here are a few pictures of Bella and John. I helped my mom babysit him today after we left Allison's house. He is sick, so we don't want him around Bella. Poor thing is snorting and coughing a lot and then I fed him and kid you not 3 minutes later he was throwing up all over the place! Poor baby! I promise you I just flipped him on his stomach and let him throw up all over the floor! It makes me laugh now because my mom was like OH MY GOSH! hahaha... He smiled afterwards, his tummy must have felt a LOT better!

So... we bought all of the tile for our master bathroom remodel. We bought more than we had planned, but we are really excited about everything! We got 20 inch tile that is beautiful porcelian, we will put it together with VERY little grout lines to make it look like a full sheet of stone on the floor. We are completely gutting the shower and putting a half wall so that we dont have a door for the shower. So we have all 1 inch tile for the shower pan, front of the bath tub, a break in the shower tile, and then the window seal. Hard to explain, but it is going to look AMAZING! We also bought a gorgeous medallion for a ridiculous price for the center of the floor. Here is what that looks like and you can get idea of the coloring of the bathroom. =) Now, I did start tearing off the hideous crap on the walls and the lazy guy who did it did it over even more hideous wallpaper. Oh joy! We are going to be buying the new fixtures soon too... oh I hope we don't go overboard, but I hate our bathroom, so I am so ready to get going!!!

Anyone need any lighting fixtures?! Go to Park Row Lighting! I was told by a lady at the gym that the Southlake one is going out of business and everything was an additional 75% off... well I headed up there this week and got a game room light for $80!!! Yes, EIGHTY! They had so much amazing pieces for ridiculously amazing prices! They had things for 50 bucks... some light for 15! I wish this had been going on when we bought all of our lighting fixtures from Lowes.. we spent so much money! Well, there are two other centers and I was told that they decided this past weekend that they are going to close those too! Everything is going to be on sale! You better head out there. Not kidding, we might go to the Arlington one to look for fans for the guest rooms. Oh can't wait!! So here is the lighting fixture that we bought... it isn't up yet, I just got it yesterday.
