HELLO Monday..........

My friends, can you see the smile on my face?  Well, we have had some beautiful spring days the past week and it has made me happy, happy.  But, it appears that we will be enduring more rain the next 3 days but hopefully not a deluge.  Did I mention that we "need" a driveway? ~chuckle~Meanwhile, here's some HELLO's for this Monday morning.

HELLO birthday boys and fun times........My baby brother was in town this past week and he celebrated his 50th birthday on St. Patrick's Day, so, even though it was a week later, I threw a little celebration for him. We donned the dorky hats for a little fun!
It was such a beautiful evening that we all went outside and enjoyed it.  We've been cooped up inside way too long and it was fun and refreshing to be outside.
On Friday Hubby celebrated his birthday.  We went to a new restaurant that has gotten rave reviews and we were NOT disappointed.  Tommy's steak looked like a pot roast and he did end up bringing some of it home.  Their food, service and atmosphere would get a 5 star rating from us.
HELLO house progress.......our shutters have been painted and are ready to hang and that will likely happen this week.  I sure do like the color and can't wait to see them up.
This is our painting contractor and he and his crew have been busy bees painting and staining.  If you look closely you can see the ceiling color, it is Softer Tan by Sherwin Williams.  All our ceilings will be that color.  So glad that white ceilings are a thing of my past.
The buffet top turned out just beautiful.
And, I absolutely love how the stained section of the kitchen turned out.  Now, can't wait to see the painted section, thinking it will be "the icing on the cake."
The tile work went full steam ahead this week.  The Master shower and all the other baths shower surrounds were done.  I couldn't be happier with the looks.
They started the tile flooring (in baths, and a small section coming in the garage door) on Friday and will finish in just a few days.
Then they will be gone for a few weeks until it is time to lay the wood flooring.
