Friday started off with a bang.  Literally.

What's wrong with this picture?

On most hair straighteners, the electrical plug is attached to a cord.  This one was up until Friday morning.  I had just finished drying my hair, plugged this in, and as soon as I started to use it.....BANG!  Smoke started coming out of the electrical plug.  I wasn't quite sure if I should touch it, scared I would get electricuted, so I just barely yanked on the cord and out it comes...what the heck!  A few minutes later I took a risk and pulled out the you can see, I'm still alive.  Good thing I had a curling iron handy so I could have somewhat styled hair.  Thankfully Trade Secrets in the mall sells Chi's....I purchased one yesterday and I LOVE it.  My old one was a Cricket I think?  Got it from my old salon in Texarkana.  All things must come to an end, and my Cricket's life has definitely ended. 

Friday after school I went by our house.  Painter pushed my buttons and I let him know.  He was probably ready to punch me in the face, but please do not lie to me or make excuses.  Both of which he did that day.  I walked in and my walls were not painted and they were supposed to have been painted the day before.  I let him know what I thought about it and today when I went by, they were painted...guess he got the drift :)  They are beautiful!!!  I didn't have my camera with me today, but I did take a few pictures Friday when I went by of them painting around the trim.  And even better....our kitchen granite countertops were installed!  They are GORGEOUS!  Absolutely love them.  I am so ready to move in! They should finish up painting inside this week, get our brick wall done, install the bathroom granite, and hopefully get the stone on our fireplace and tile backsplash laid. 

The paint colors aren't really "true" in pictures, but let me assure you that the paint is so pretty and so warm feeling :)  I love it.  They hadn't started on our bedroom or Matt's man room when I took these pictures, but I saw it today and oh. my. gosh.  I love it!  Superior bronze rocks my world.

I went shopping at Target yesterday and today and got some cute long sleeve tops.  All mine are packed so instead of unpacking before I have to re-pack and unpack I decided just to buy a few new ones.  Good excuse huh?  I also got baby Spingola a BIG Christmas gift!  Doctor told Ash that she will be induced on December 21 if she hasn't gone into labor by then so the little boy will be here to unwrap his gift :) 

Oh, and I have to brag about a GREAT deal I got today on blinds.  I've never been a big JC Penny's person, but hellllllo, why not?  I got Levelor faux wood blinds today 70% off plus another 20% off!  Let me just tell you that when blinds cost $200-$400 a piece, that helps out tremendously :)  The farmer will be proud of my savings for sure.  We just got our refund tax money (we file stuff...) and it just bought us 11 blinds.  They should be here within 3 weeks...can't wait!  Why am I so excited about blinds????????

Chicken and Dumplings for dinner and Brothers and Sisters on tonight.  Great night! 

Oh, and homework.  Boo.  I am tired of grad school...major senioritis.  Good thing I graduate in May!

Just found your blog, SO CUTE!!! We are in the process of building a house, too, and it is CRAZY!

Ahhh I wish I had seen that sale on blinds at Penneys! I will have to keep looking. Or the neighbors will be getting nightly peep shows...
