12 to be exact, and they are fantastic! Low argon E, heat resistant, and cute! Another bonus, since they are energy efficient, we get a tax credit! yay! We went with the craftman style look, only grids on the top half. Super chic, and makes looking outside simple!

Ahhh the pictures, yes I took plenty! But my computer is dying and trying to make me hate it for life. So once that lil guy is fixed or I pick a new computer, pictures will have to come later. Sorry!

Random living room details.

With the fireplace taking up much of the living room,we had to get a flat screen to sit on the mantle. So the next question was what to do with the cable box and DVD player. I decided a tall bookcase structure next to the mantle would look nice. And I found the perfect piece at West Elm, and on sale. The tall bookcase holds the cable box and my stack of Real Simple Mags. I showed a picture of it earlier with the pictures on the wall, but this picture also shows the white fireplace we painted the first day we moved in.
Oh and yes we were watching American Idol. Go Chris!!!!Here is a close up of the curtains for the living room. That again have been up for months now. But I am just getting to posting pictures. More pics will come of the finished product! Bubs put them up with our new curtain rods. Oh, and we are getting new windows within the next month that are energy efficient!

Garden Update

This is my fourth year growing a garden and it just keeps getting bigger and better. I just added to the original group of veggies Bubba and I planted a few weeks ago. This week Bubs planted squash and zucchini. Today cherry tomato's were also planted and all of the spices. It was Bubs idea to plant them in pots on the front steps. I think I am going to repaint the pots white or maybe lime green! haha... nah! Any color suggestions?

Pop of Pink

Real quick, I picked some roses and put them in my cute lil ikea vase. I have wanted a lil pop of pink in the bathroom this whole time, and this is as far as I have gotten! Haha, one day will be the shower curtain. Any ideas?
