I labored on labor day!

Blake and I must have been stuck inside for too long or
maybe we got a wild hair up our butts, but this is gone, poof!

The fireplace, not the dog. lol. Yes, we really are nuts. We seriously chiseled each brick (well, some of them on top came as a whole group) and now, there is nothing but the shell. Since we moved in, we've wanted to redo the fireplace, and Blake's manly inclination to put the TV above it kicked in the day we looked at the house. We had planned on only taking a few layers off, but Blake decided his manly tv was going to be too high. So, we make it all disappear.

The crappy part is we didn't think this whole thing out, and it ended up taking us all day. When we finished---the floors, the tv, coffee tables, everything--even lily were covered in dust. Exhausted, we cleaned the whole living room and kitchen top to bottom. Smart ones we are.

So, we plan on finishing it this week, and hope to have the TV installed by next weekend! I'd post pics of it now, but my freaking camera broke.

The rest of the weekend ended up being busier than we planned too. Saturday morning, I had planned on cleaning all day, but we ended up going our friend's new house! Congrats guys! Then, Friends of ours stopped by so i could finally see their baby, and this is like the 9,39393 baby I've held in the past month. NO MORE OR MY OVARIES WILL EXPLODE from the fever!!!!

Later on that night, I managed to snag another night out with a few of the girls, watched MIZZOU kick ass, (GO TIGERS!!!) and managed to find myself tipsy. (Obviously, i am feeling better!!)

This weekend was great! It always is too short for me, but I'm already ready for next weekend. Next week is busy one, and we have our fair share of work to do.....what did we get ourselves into?

What are your plans for the new fireplace? I am eager to see what you do!

BTW, I have your striped cover-up from the GNO. I will bring it the next time I see you. I didn't know if you thought you lost it!
