Say hello to our new vanity. Isn't it pretty? After finding one on Costco.com and then going to order it only to be told that they didn't have any more, we searched again. This one was found on Samsclub.com...good thing my parents are members and we were able to order it under their number. It says it could take up to 4 weeks to get here, I am hoping for less because we need to know the color of the granite and the pulls to get the tile and the faucets and the shower hardware before we can install the vanity. Then comes the paint color, mirrors, and lights. We are off and running.
All the tile is off the walls and two walls have had the dry wall stripped. We didn't find any mold (thank god), but did find electrical and lots of 2x4 blocking, so we will have to remove that and then see the plumbing lines and such....oh what fun

There are three seasons in the Hurey house, skiing, hiking and projects. Since the weather has turned rainy, we have moved from hiking into projects. The kids and I have successfully removed the carpet from the master bathroom and torn down 1 1/2 walls of tile from the shower. We will be working on the remaining walls this week and weekend. Ryan has promised to get Wyatt's closet nailed together this weekend and maybe we can start to stain that....so stay tuned for some pictures in the coming weeks.

I made this today more as a cobbler after reading the reviews on it. I didn't have candied ginger, so I used ground ginger. My house smells divine!!! It is very liquidy still and I am hoping that it will thicken up, next time I would use more corn starch or tapioca if the pears are very ripe. If it doesn't thicken up, we can use as a topping for ice cream.
