Long time no blog! Not much has been going on that is blog-worthy. We are just having a super busy summer and haven't had time to do any work on the house. Well, we seem to just be fixing things that have been breaking. Our house is totally wonderful and fabulous, but it seems a bit rickety for some reason. The shower knob breaks, the tile in the bathroom floor cracks, the hose nozzle thingy in the wall breaks, the deck leaks a bit.. These are the things that have demanded our attention. No fun. We did get the bathroom done. It is purty now. The blue that they had on the walls before was not bad, but it was just not relaxing. Now the water closet is nice and calming.

Old, jazzy blue bathroom:

New and improved Zen bathroom:

 That only took 4 months. Oh and it isn't done decorating-wise. That'll take until Christmas. :p

Our next project is the Master bedroom. If you recall, it used to look like this:

Ick. We are going to remove the chair rails and go with three tan walls and a chocolate brown accent wall. We tried blue, but it didn't work out. It made us feel like we were in the middle of the ocean. Which is ok, but this ocean was stormy and not sleepy and calming. Luckily the paint was free, so no harm no foul.

Don't you just want to get cozy in that room?

So, that's about it. Nothing else to report. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

P.S. My friend Beth reminded me that we also got two new additions to Casa Petruska. Gah! How could I forget?! Thanks, B. :)

Here is our first addition to the family room. 

I feel so grown up with a leather sectional. And someday, Mike will let me eat food near it.

The second addition is our 46" splurge.There are no words. Except  maybe "Football season just got AWESOME."  Go Stillers!
