the final countdown

it's been a week since i last mentioned that the bathroom was "almost finished!" aaaand we're still in the same spot. we ran into a few complications (the window we ordered wasn't ready until last friday, the shower fixture we bought doesn't fit the pipes, and the medicine cabinet measurements online were wrong, so it's too small for the opening!! grrrrr.) so now we're just waiting until russ can fit us in to finish it up.

however, the toilet and sink are in working condition and for that, we are grateful! here's how the bathroom is looking today:

i'm in love with the floor. like, a lot.

poor little sink space needs some light and a mirror to brighten things up...all in good time :)

the light switches are inside the bathroom now! (the switch used to be out in the hall!)

aside from the light fixture above the sink, we had russ put in two can lights:

we're hopeful that the bathroom will be in working order by the end of this week (cross your fingers for us!) but in the meantime, we've decided to tackle another project that kind of got put on the back-burner: the playroom!!! 

carpet is being installed today at eleven a.m.!! hopefully i can get some pictures up for you soon :)

and in case you don't really care about all of our home renovations, here are some darling pictures of the kids from st. patty's day:
