the flooring is installed!!!!
aside from a small 3/4 piece that was missing and needs to be ordered, everything is finished!
the past few times we went to the unit was during the early evening and i couldn't get a good feel for the flooring with the paint. so we went on sunday to see it in broad daylight. and it looks much better in the light of day.

the paint looks almost white in this picture!

the one thing i really can't stand though, are the 3/4 rounds all along the walls. i'm totally not a fan of this look, but nolan said it was our only option. oh well. i guess i can live with it.

In Other News...
We've sold the couch, coffee table, chaise lounge...and the tv & tv stand will be leaving us as well.
We found the perfect (for us) couch right when i had given up hope that we'd find something!
Next up is lighting installation (living room) and shelving (shoe closet & all closets)

we have to start packing up our current abode...we'll begin showing it to potential renters this week! i can't believe after all these months, we're finally on our way to actually living in our new place!!!

we have a moving date!!!

a tentative moving date that is.

the moving company nolan wants to use only takes military family moves...but made some sort of exception for us since our move will be pretty minimal, but the stipulation is that we HAVE TO move on a saturday.

this week? nope. too soon.
next week? nope. i'm in a wedding.
the week after that? nope. nolan's in a wedding.
when will it ever be OUR wedding?....<----...how'd that get in there?!? cece did you hack my blogger?
so it'll be the week after that!!!!
i better start packing and looking for big boxes!

in other news...our flooring should be done tomorrow, and then we begin work on shelving and all the feng shui necessities.

and i'm super excited to say that nolan is getting rid of his bachelor pad furniture!!!
*happy dance! happy dance! happy dance!*
i can't tell you enough how happy i am. but now we need to scramble to find replacement furniture.

i shall leave you with a picture of us jetting off to las vegas...

granite installed!

The granite is installed, and looks great :)
This is our bathroom...the countertop is actually marble that we found on sale at Selective Stone.
If you ever go there, ask for Rexie, she's great! Everyone there is so nice and helpful though.
Our lighting is Sonneman tubo lighting that i saw online and fell in love with but when it came to shipping, it was ridiculous to ship to hawaii...with a broken heart we went to local lighting stores, where i found them!!! picked them up at Lighting Concepts (love that place!) one of the fixtures outer glass casing was cracked so they have a replacement for us coming in. this is our kitchen granite. it's called wild sea, verde...or something like that. i can't remember now. AFTER it was installed nolan admitted to me that he didn't like it when i had picked it out, but upon seeing it in our kitchen he really likes it. (thank god!)

Then on friday we went to lowes to pick up some track lighting...which was all sold out.
note to self: buy when you see it because it may not be there when you go back!!!!
we were accompanied by our little monster:

"let me out!"
