Scenes from the Weekend

This weekend was jammed packed.  We had a fully weekend of picking out tile, paint, flooring, lighting, etc.  I was even up at 4am because I was so excited about our day.  I decided to document the day to look back on once the house building is finished.  Hopefully that will be soon. 
Can you see his furrowed eyebrows?  He always seems a little confused if I have to wake him up instead of waking up on his own.


We of course had to start our journey with Chick-Fil-A for breakfast first.  These Pipsquigz toys are amazing when trying to occupy a baby while you eat.

I spotted this Roman Shade at Lowe's and immediately thought it would go wonderful over my kitchen sink.  It isn't something I would probably pull up and down but I love the decor factor.

I knew I wanted to use weathered wood tile in my house somewhere.  I originally wanted in my master bath but it wouldn't go with my spa feel that I want.  So, this beauty is going in our spare bathroom downstairs.  I am thinking we will need a rustic vanity in here to but I love that I can make this bathroom a little different than the rest of the house.
For paint we are using Sherwin Williams. 
All the trim in the house will be Westhighland White and the walls downstairs will be Neutral Ground.  Our kitchen cabinets will also be Westhighland White but with a caramel glaze.
The nursery and downstairs bathroom will be Sedate Gray. We are using Alabaster for our cabinet color in the laundry room, master bath vanity, and master closet.  Luke's office will be painted Anonymous with the same trim that's throughout the house.
We haven't picked out a color for the playroom and some of the other bedrooms and baths upstairs but we still may go with Neutral Ground.
We have already ordered our can lighting that we are using throughout the house, but we went and tried to find some specialty lighting.  This gorgeous lantern lights will do on both sides of the front door and there will be 1 of the same lights beside our side door.  We also picked out pendent lighting for over the island in the kitchen, and some outdoor lighting for our screen porch out back. 

Our fireplace rock is finally finished and the guy did a rock solid job.  No pun intended.  Griffin approves too!
We ended the day back at Ma'ama's house.  We house our Christmas tree in her storage building and we finally got around to getting the box our of our living room.
