New Floors!!!

Floors before we arranged our furniture

Ever since we built our house I’ve regretted not getting hard woods in our family room. I’m not even sure why we didn’t get them to begin with.  Carpets get so nasty with all the build up, especially with dogs. Even when my carpet cleaner was being used every week, the carpet would start getting grimy looking.

We finally took the plunge and replaced the carpet with wood floors.  We chose bamboo flooring because we heard it’s really strong and that’s good for people with dogs.  We decided we wanted to do this about 3 months ago, but I had trouble deciding what to get. We got the flooring at Floor and Decor after going from place to place, looking at options, colors, pricing, etc.

The floor guy came in and did the whole thing in one day. They did such a great job.  I’m so excited about how they look!  If you need someone to come do your floors, I recommend Scott Feller at 512-801-8966.  His crew was excellent!  He also does roofing. Now, I’m mad that I didn’t go ahead and replace the carpet in my bedroom. I think that may be next!!

Creating My Own Polyvore Type Picture

It’s official.  We are finally going to take the plunge and get new floors in our family room.  We’ve been fighting the smell of dogs since we first built this house, so I’m hoping hardwood floors will help us get rid of some of those odors.  We’ve decided to go with bamboo floors because they are supposedly very durable.  I hope they are right about that!  This afternoon, I went by Floor & Decor one last time to make sure I like the color that we have chosen. I think it’s going to work.

Since I was already in the area, I decided to go to my favorite store, MARSHALLS!!! While I was there, I bought two sundresses, a shirt and a pair of sandals.  I’ve always wanted a white sundress to wear with cowboy boots.  I have no idea if it even looks good on me, but I don’t really care because it’s a look I’ve always liked.  I can’t wait to have a reason to wear this cute outfit.

I was about to put my new clothes away, when I got distracted and got on Pinterest.  While I was looking on there, I got the great idea to create my own Polyvore type picture with my own clothes.  I wish I had something to do a better backdrop, but the carpet really didn’t work.  It was kind of fun putting it all together! I wish I had a fancy camera to take professional looking photos.  I really love taking pictures! 🙂
