So, we finally threw a housewarming party for all of our local blog readers! It was a glorious day!

Lots of visitors, food and merriment. Unfortunately, we were so busy hosting that we forgot to take many pictures during the day. Between Adam's mom and our camera, we got about 12 pictures. :) Here are some of them!

Here's Carole and Grandma Nemec, captured eating one of Sue's yummy cookies!

Does Grandma Nemec remind you of anyone in this photo??? It's the glasses...

Me taste testing before the guests arrive...

Adam's bro Joe, his wife KT, and Grandma Nemec

Adam's cousin Dan, My Dad Norm, and Adam's Dad Joe

Adam's cousin Jason and his family, Sadie, Jennifer and Maddy

Adam's mom Sue and Aunt Joan working the grill

Steve, Liz, Katie and Allison enjoying the sun

More guest... Some bean bagging going on in the background

Melon and Jamie... Jamie must have made a good bean bag toss! She's got air!

The BBQ wouldn't have been possible without the two moms, Madelaine and Sue -- AND my "second mom" Arlet (not pictured). Thanks moms!

We debuted some new rooms in the house at the party...

Here is Adam's comic room... it is not done, but is starting to display some accessories... notice the figures, cool lamps and curtains!

We hung some art on the wall that I bought from They are limited edition prints by Matte Stephens.

Here are some web pics of the art.

We've also been starting to accesorize the guest room. Notice the curtains...

The Owl Vase. An $8 consignment shop purchase. Spray painted to update, add flowers and viola! Spray paint is my new favorite thing.

I also spray painted this owl tray and old picture frame (just need a picture). The owl stuffies are from too! As you see, I am liking owls these days.

Anyway, the housewarming was a great. Thanks to everyone for coming! Hope you had a great time!

Next up with the house: we are having the upstairs tub reglazed in a few weeks! Good times!

More soon.
Carole (+ Adam)

I loved the party! You did a super duper job putting everything together. When's the next one?

Looks like you had a great housewarming. It was good to see all of the family there. Very organized but you get that honest from Madelaine. I always loved the way she put together the high school graduation piece when I was at Mattoon. Sure made life easier. Have a great week. Tell Adam hello.
