Totally gratuitous pic of my lunch – seared sea bass & heirloom tomato salad – yum!

Guess who has a hot date tonight?

That’s right?  I do.  With Josh Beckett.  He’s so dreamy!   😉

Oh, and I’m bringing my father-in-law to the luxury box, but you know, it’s really all about spending some quality time with old faithful #19.  Let’s go Red Sox!!!

Silly face Sabrina!

Jim & I are now the proud & happy owners of a home with 1.5 working bathrooms.  Yee-ha!!!

We may still hang shelves (with baskets) over the toilet, and may frame some flower photographs I’ve taken to decorate a little more (and replace the ugly soap pump), but this is pretty much it, and I love, love, love it!!!  Enough that I can’t stop using three exclamation marks after everything I type.  Eek!!!  😉

So now that it’s done, what do YOU think?


Making a bathroom is HARD work

And here are some photos of our bathroom remodeling project at various stages of completion to prove it.  The most horrifying pictures show the damage that had been done behind the old insulation on one of the exterior walls, which we obviously had replaced before we proceeded with fresh insulation & drywall.

For the record, we did most of this work ourselves, but we did hire a professional for the electrical & plumbing work.  And ultimately, the rebuilding of the damaged exterior wall & replacement window installation.  We also had a load of help & guidance from Jim’s sister Kariann and her husband Doug, who have much more experience with this kind of project than we do, and I’m not sure how we’ll repay them, but I have a feeling baked goods will be part of the equation.

So for your perusal, here are the “during” pictures:

For what it’s worth, these pictures span from June 24 through Aug. 28, 2011.  Not exactly as speedy as we would have liked, but most of the work was done on weekends, with a few work/weeknights thrown in for good measure.
