Plumbing on Independence Day...

Happy 4th of July.  We spent most of our day working on the condo.  My parents picked up our new master bath vanity at Lowes...  it's amazing.  We have so much more counter top space now for the blow dryer, curling iron, makeup, yadda yadda.  

While Michael and my dad worked on the new vanity, my mom and I made a trip to the grocery store for a little barbeque by the pool.  While on our way to the store, we noticed a sea of towels and chairs on Lake Rancho Santa Margarita...  we quickly realized that the 4th of July holiday drew quite a crowd to the lake and we would have an interesting night with parking and seating.

When we got back from the store we went down to the pool and grilled hot dogs, hamburgers and corn!  MMMM!  Then we swam for a bit.  After the pool and barbeque, back to work we went!  The vanity will be completely finished tomorrow.  

We went down to the lake around 8:45 ish and made a small hike to see the fireworks show. The fireworks were great and we will definitely be up early to grab our spot for 4th of July 2010.

Highly Recommend...

Behr recently introduced their latest product Paint & Primer in One!  We couldn't be happier with this paint.  Rather than painting one coat of primer then two coats of paint, we painted two coats of the paint & primer in one and our walls were colored to perfection.  

The Paint & Primer in one is a little pricey, but well worth it.  Obnoxious colors are covered in no time!  

No more camping chairs...

Michael and I finally had a chance to go furniture shopping.  Since I live in a room at my parent's house and Michael rented a room with a friend, neither one of us had any living/dining room furniture to speak of.  Since we had plans to paint and rip apart the condo first, we've been waiting to buy furniture because it would be in the way SO, camping chairs it has been!

Our new couch and dining room set will be delivered on Monday.  I love them both with the exception of the checkered pillows!  Those will have to go :)  Looking forward to shopping at West Elm for curtains and accessories.
