Saturday we went down to Niagara to celebrate some 30th birthdays. Excellent time! The only downside to visiting many wineries in one afternoon is that it is hard to stay awake past supper.

We went to 6 wineries and had yummy tastings at each one. G and I bought a few bottles to put in our wine cellar/basement...we laugh because we always have lofty plans of having a bit of a collection, but then the wine mood hits and we break into our stash and that is the end of that. We managed to rally and make it out for supper, but by the time the gang was heading out to the bar we were both so full of food ready for bed. The Walsh's are a fan of sleep! Sunday morning we had breakfast with the gang and headed back home to do some work on the house.
Kevin had stayed over on Saturday and finished laying the flooring down in our bedroom. One step closer to a finished space! We had also discussed making the linen closet a bit smaller to allow for a bigger nook in our walk in closet. So we came home to:

Kevin had started cutting it out so he could put flooring all the way through. Glorious, Glorious flooring! Last night G cut out the rest of the wall. We will be moving the wall back a foot, and then I think building some sort of shelving in the closet for...you guessed it! More storage! We also spent some quality time at Rona trying to pick out a colour for our bedroom. Originally the plan was white, but then we noticed that there are approximately 200 different shades of white (a less exciting version of 50 shades of Grey perhaps?) The choice ended up being "Risotto" which is a lightly more cream/taupe colour. As of late we have been pretty pumped with our spur of the moment paint choices so I am hoping that this also works out so well. Garret has one of his flex days today so he is at home working today...very excited to see what I get to come home to! I love having such a handy hubby. (*side note, first time I have said hubby HA)
