The day we've been waiting for (was yesterday)!

Our floors are here, our floors are here!!!  After a ridiculous amount of delivery mishaps and an extra week and a half, our flooring has finally arrived, and it looks great!  We couldn't be happier with both the quality and the color.  Unfortunately, we had to order so much of it that it nearly takes up both of our spare rooms while still in the box.  We decided to take out a few boxes at a time to let it "breathe" since chances are we aren't going to do the whole house at once.
While not moving around about 4600 lbs of floors (including the boxes at the Tellez residence), we've been knee deep in tile work.  The fireplace is now grouted and awaits sealant tomorrow (see the fireplace post for updated pictures), and the entryway is cut and laid!  Tomorrow, we grout.  All in all the entryway went way better than the fireplace.  I'm sure it has a little to do with the fact that we had a better idea about what we were doing, but starting with a completely level surface didn't hurt either.  Luckily for us, Colin is a whiz with the tile saw, and all of the cuts lined up perfectly!  It completely transforms the entryway and will look great with the laminate! 
At this point after going non stop nearly every day with the house, my body is slowly breaking down and covered in bruises.  Renovating a house is truly the best workout there is.  When we're not working our butts off, I like to spend my time hanging out with this guy:
Can't I just play with legos and read books all day?
