Construction Zone

My foyer looks like this right now!!! And the excitement is because construction = home improvements and there is nothing I love more than a good ol house project. Yes, seriously!!! For my bday (back in April) Lee got me a light fixture for my foyer. One that I had been drooling over for months. Yes, I drool over light fixtures. Only problem was that my foyer is approximately 17 feet high from floor to ceiling which made do-it-yourself installation impossible. Until I got creative and got my hands on some scaffolding. My cousin is a very talented mason and he was willing to let me borrow some scaffolding. He dropped it off yesterday and my mom and WONDERFUL brother-in-law came over last night and we got it up. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! So much that I was too giddy to fall asleep last night. Once my cousin gets the scaffolding down, I will post a pic of the enormous beauty. But you can kind of see it in the pic (hanging under the scaffold).

And to top it all off, this was my kitchen sink this morning.

Empty! While I was busy with the light, Lee emptied the sink and did the dishes. Not that he doesn't help out around the house, its just that for some reason this morning it made me extra happy to not have to do the dishes that I neglected last night b/c I was preoccupied.

Celebrate the small things!!!!
