1. Jackie Davis came and made our houses look like something out of BH&G.
2. Well, she made Gram's house look like Pottery Barn.
3. I got the paint colors, fabric swatches, rug sizes, and a few tidbits...
4. I gotta get that hideous blue floral and ribbon wallpaper off our bedroom walls... It's just sooo attractive.
5. Then we need to paint the walls, get some pictures, put up some crown molding, and find some nifty new bedding.
6. LLB got her curio back in her room. She's very happy to have her teacups and her perfume bottles to look at whenever she wants.
7. I don't even miss them.
8. Grambug is down to one guest room. It was a little too froo froo, so she's on the prowl for new bedding and pictures.
9. It's funny how in the old house, that guest room didn't look froo froo. It was also a little bit bigger. Maybe bigger rooms can be more froo froo....
10. Her second guest room is now a gorgeous TV room in the loft. #1 ran a chair up there for us and when he returned his comment was, "Wow, that room is wicked cool! It looks great up there."
11. I told Jackie, "You know you've hit a home run when a 14 year old boy likes what you've done!!"
12. On another note, #1 has been nominated for the Champion of Excellence Award at school.
13. He is excited about the possibility of winning - he's up against 5 other kids. I think he has the highest GPA, but there's more to it than that. The application is due next week... Then, we wait...
