This may not be a big deal to anyone else but it is to us! Chris and I are going to Maui in August with my family and were planning on staying with them in their condo for the week. It would be a little tight but we were all ok with it. I put in a request through the time share for a week in Maui and had requested like 13 resorts. We knew it would be a slim to none chance that we would get the exact week we wanted but we gave it a try. Well, I got a call this morning and not only did we get the week that we wanted....we got a 1 bedroom condo at the same resort as my family!!!! Seriously, that is a gift from the Lord. There were so many other resorts and yet He chose to open up a room at the same resort!!! I have been doing the happy dance all morning- it woke Kate up but we're so excited! This is a blessing to us and as small and crazy as a request it was to lay before the Lord, He granted it! Thank you!!!

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall!

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
