A few weeks ago...Mike and I took on a gigantic (and quite frankly stupid) home improvement project...putting in wood floors. We figured that we would save lots of money if we put them in ourselves...and oh GOD what were we thinking!?! It was a much much bigger job than we had originally intended and it has taken us countless hours and many weeks...but finally it's done and we're soooo proud! I have never been so sore in my entire life (including after marathons!). It was hard work but I think it was worth every bead of sweat, blister, and splinter! What do you think?

AFTER!!! :) = the beautiful wood throughout!
