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

It's a gorgeous Monday here in NE Louisiana and we've been blessed with a week of gorgeous weather and it is obvious that it has lifted the spirit of everyone.  A long cold and wet winter and a wetter than wet Spring left us in the doldrums.  Nothing like a sunny day to lift your spirits!  Here's to some HELLO'S this morning.........
HELLO beautiful rugs.........this past Thursday a friend and I went to a fantastic rug show in Lake Village, Arkansas.  It took place at Noni's Antiques and she has been having Halimi come with his rugs for over 20 years.  She has 4 shows a year and my friend had been to one of them when she was building her new home and told me that I needed to go that the choices and prices were fantastic.  Well, she was right and I picked up a couple of runners and smaller rugs and am thrilled too death with them.  My decorator and I had already chosen the bigger rugs that I will need but not any for the smaller areas.  And, Hubby says he doesn't quite understand that you put down gorgeous wood floors and then cover them up with rugs. ~grin~

HELLO house update.....things are moving at breakneck speed.  The painters are still busy as bees and all the granite was installed this past week.  Oh, what a difference it made.
  We were able to pick from remnants for all the smaller areas and there were so many wonderful choices.  We chose some patterns that we would have never picked for larger areas, such as the Hall Bath.  It is quite shocking but so very pretty and I have very light colored linens for that bathroom and think that will calm it down just the right amount.  
And, what you see in the above picture is all the needed items to build the forms for the driveway.  Yep! it's looking like that just may happen this week.  I'm trying not to get too excited but we sure are hopeful that Mother Nature behaves and it can happen.
I happen to think that I had not taken any pics of the back of the house.  Hubby and I took his Badboy Buggy to the house this weekend and rode over to the other side of the pond and I captured the bottom right picture.  I love how the house is completely reflected in the pond.  I'm pretty sure we are going to enjoy that pond way more than we realize. ~can't wait~
 HELLO baby boy.......And, I've saved the BEST for last!!  I've been holding this precious secret very close to my heart for a long time.  Yep, Bridget, Clint and Clancy will welcome another little boy into their family in October.  She has made it 17 weeks and her Drs. feel very good about her situation this time.  As most of you know, this will be her 5th pregnancy in the past 4 years. The last four have ended with late term miscarriages.  She has been blessed with a wonderful Obstetrician there in Mt. Pleasant and a Perintologist in Dallas.  We continue to pray God's watch care over her and this precious baby boy.  

Have a wonderful week!
