And God made light!

He also made light fixtures. And not all of these are equal. I can attest to this from the truly hideous fans in our house. One of the check list items. So here's what we've been up to this weekend:
New fan in the family room to replace the old one. We had originally bought two of these to go in the bedrooms, but discovered that the ceilings are just too low in our rooms to accommodate fans. So we took one back and put this one up instead.
Here is the new light fixture we put up in the dining room. Previously there had been an ugly, spray-painted white fan with yellow light globes. Gross. This looks so much better! And I added a touch of charm with the ceiling medallion as well. I'm very pleased!
Here's how it looks up and put together. We also turned the table around to change things up a bit. I'm not sure how I like it that way yet, we'll just have to wait and see.

This weekend also happens to be graduation weekend for Trav's sister, Stefanie. She is the third youngest, with Danica following two years behind her. So we went to cheer her on at the ceremony. And we lucked out with beautiful weather! Here we are with the proud graduate:

Go Stef! National Honor Society and everything!

Tomorrow my parents come to visit for a week. I'm so excited! There will definitely be pictures following. Happy Memorial Day!
