I bought my elongated toilet during a 50$ water-saving rebate/incentive the city was offering. So the toilet was 90$ before rebate, and i also bought the install kit and seat/seat cover. Which i think totalled to be about 120-130$ before rebate. I installed the toilet myself. You should consider installing it yourself! If it's a carrying it from a car and up the stairs issue, why don't you have the store ship it to your house and have the delivery men directly put the box in your bathroom

I took my tree down Jan 12. I probably would have taken it down sooner, but i left town for the week with my family, and January 5 was just too early!
However, i do still have my christmas lights up, and i must confess, i'm still turning them on. They're so pretty i just love turning them on. If the lights were white instead of blue, i could be using them in the summer on my deck, right?

It's funny because yesterday i was grocery shopping and found this little mailbox/message center with two hooks to hang on my wall in my tiny small entrance. It's perfect for todays assignment. It's been something LONG overdue in my place. Before then i was bringing everything (except recycling which a box designated for this sits at my front entrance) up the half flight of stairs (jackets, purses and the rest) up to hang over my dining chairs and dining table. I'm so excited because i think it's going to make a huge difference in my house.

I've always wanted to make French onion soup and FINALLY i made some last night with the help of my boyfriend (that onion aroma just loves to sit in my eyes, so he cut the onions. I took my contacts out and eye-dropped my eyes 4 times and did not even slice a sliver of onion!). I couldn't believe how easy it was to make and also how delicious it was. It tasted better than most of the restaurant made soups I've had in the past. So Yummy!

I think it looks gorgeous, but unless you're using everything displayed on a regular basis and aren't afraid to dust a little than i thik it's not a bad idea. However, why not compromise and have door-less cabinets? Would keep some of the grime and dust out, but still have that open feel. Or glass doors?

The Kitchen i put into my place now was great because i was able to obtain a designer discount via my father's business.
Next time i do a kitchen, however, and perhaps if i don't have the use of my father's discount, i would totally use IKEA, even though you can save some money building cabinets. My cabinets sat in boxes for about a week before the installers could make it in. I could have built them myself, and had them installed, and maybe could have saved some money. I'm glad my cabinets were installed by a professional though, because there is nothing level about my place (it was built in the 60s). I don't know how long i could handle measuring, and re-checking, shimming and making sure everything was level when installing the base cabinets in my place.
