Sunny Saturday

Today was one of the first spring days that it was actually warm and sunny. I normally shy away from the sun but it was pretty nice out. We got Ian's hair cut and then headed to Fireside Restaurant. Ian used to go there for breakfast when he was in college... It is a nice/cheapish breakfast place. I am definitely going to take my family there when they come here in December. We went to The House to take the daily picture. And finally went all the way into Toronto or as "into Toronto" as I can stomach.

Back in January, my company had a week long meeting in the city. They celebrated the 20th anniversary of Amgen in Canada and gave out some gifts from Tiffany. I got the Mini Bean Necklace. It really wasn't something I would wear. So I exchanged it for this - Tiffany Blue Box. I'm probably going to use it to store my wedding rings when I clean... and I think it would look pretty good on my nightstand.

Blue Bathroom?

With nothing left to do but pack [extreme understatement]... we've started to think about colors. This color of blue was suggested by our interior designer. I've made the half wall blue but I think we would end up keeping that white.

Shower Time!

We checked out The House today and got a nice surprise...

The glass shower was installed! It was hard to get a good picture... Here it is with the light on... exciting! [Minus the duct tape...] =P

And here is the latest shot of The House.

Gorgeous Granite

You have something in your head... You think the floor, cabinet and granite combinations would look good... but you really have no idea. Then you see it... and fall even more in love. /drama The correct color of granite was installed today. [Thank you to my awesome future neighbor, Alicia. She let me know the granite installers were at the house!] Behold! Beautiful Kitchen!

The end of the peninsula was installed... but they had to take off the cabinet door to install the granite. It still looks wonderful....

Another Peek At The House

We got another sneak peek at the house - we're very lucky... The kitchen has had some more work done. Unfortunately they installed the wrong color of granite. Actually they installed almost the complete opposite of what we wanted. Thankfully our builder is awesome and will be fixing it right away. The current granite has cream and brown colors in it. The correct color is called Black Pearl. Anyway, the crown moulding on the cabinets was installed... and other missing pieces. I think it looks amazing.

The upstairs is looking good too. Here is a shot of the tub and sink of the ensuite.

The main bath only has one major issue left to fix. The whole toilet/vent issue is still pending. Otherwise I think it looks pretty good. Ian gets all the credit for designing this bathroom...

We'll visit the house again tomorrow but more than likely the house will be locked again. For whatever reason, they have removed the protective sheeting on the back windows... so looking in the back won't be a problem anymore. But that's a bit different than taking a stroll through it. 110 days left!! And only 2 more days until we go to Virginia to see the Outlaw [see below].
