1. I love coffee! But truly I wonder if it is coffee that I enjoy or the stuff you put in it. I have a red espresso maker and I make my own lattes each day, (each day is EVERY DAY) my favorite drink is a double sugar-free fat-free Vanilla Caramel Latte.
2. I am a registered nurse, and I love my job! Actually I love the work I do... I never thought I would like to be an ER nurse or OB nurse or Med/Surg nurse. HOWEVER, I wear all those hats and I LOVE IT! My dad was a doctor and my mom was a nurse and i avoided medicine at all costs until I hit 30... then I felt the need to be a nurse!
3. I met my husband Tony at Chelan Convention, church fellowship, 18 years ago this past June. We dated for 2 months then I broke up with him for 3 months then I soon realized how much I missed him and begged him to take me back, within 7 months we were married.
4. If my daughter Tori would have been a boy I would have named him Gharrett. So I think my hubby was very glad that it was a girl.
5. I am not very creative.. but I do happen to do a good job if I can lift an idea from someone else's brilliant ideas.
6. My middle name is Lucille. Have no idea why they named me that?
7. I always wished people would call me Kate or Lucy... Funny how my human nature is... if I was called Kate or Lucy I would probably want to be called some other nickname. heehee

Where does the time go...?

Well, the time doesn't go soon enough... :) We are still awaiting move in day, though we are much closer than we were in June. I took these pictures a few weeks ago, and still haven't uploaded them... i will try to get out there this weekend, as we have countertops done, cupboard, trim, doors, showers, etc... done on the upper floor. Pretty much on the main floor we are just waiting on carpet and the finishing touches... Today they are texturing the down stairs and hope to paint, tomorrow and Monday... so then on to the finish work downstairs. We were told move in date in 2 weeks, but since our original was May, I won't be getting to anxious for that day... I imagine the middle of August will find us snuggled in to the house amidst boxes, etc... but we do only have to move 10-50 feet or so.... sometimes the shortest moves are the hardest though, because we are not really all that prepared for the move yet... Started packing up some things, but hard to store much around this little house.... We are ANXIOUS to spread out. I am hoping to get my craft room painted next week and hopefully paint some colors on a couple walls in the great room.... They paint the one base color and the accents are up to me... which is fine I love to paint :)

This shot is from the little loft looking down on Tony and Tori in the kitchen.... Tori is in her jammies, so it must have been a late night.
