I'm not sure if I mentioned that while we're remodeling the kitchen, we're also installing new flooring in our master. Last weekend we had to clear out our bedroom (and closet), and move temporarily into the guest room so the floors could be done. There's nothing quite like sharing a queen size bed with 4 furry friends. Brees rarely sleeps with us, but for some reason this week decided that she wanted to cuddle too. Good times!

I think that all of the work in the house has been a little stressful for the pups. They got to go to Puppy PlayCare each day (to get them out of the way of the workers), but they both had upset stomachs Thursday and Friday, and haven't been eating like they usually do. Thankfully we're in the home stretch this week, and expect to have the majority of the work in the kitchen finished by Saturday. At least work that requires the help of professionals. We will still have a laundry list of finishing touches that could take us another month or so.

The new floors are gorgeous, but after seeing them installed I realized that our current bedding is not going to work. So now I'm on the hunt for a new duvet cover and pillows. I think we're going to stick with something very neutral, and then add some fun printed pillows.

Here is our bedroom BEFORE (with really ugly brown carpet):

Here is the bedroom AFTER (minus all of our furniture):

It was nice being back in our bed last night, and not feeling quite so cramped. I think we're all getting used to the change, but I really love how it turned out. The new floor is pecan, laid in a herringbone patterned and finished with white rubio oil. It's pretty spectacular, and we feel really lucky to have it!
