We went to dinner with Leanne, Brett's mom, downtown at Saputo's. If you're ever in Springfield..and you like Italian food...go to Saputo's. You definitely won't regret it! My parents left on Sunday afternoon, after we drove all around Springfield to find a flooring company that stocks absolute black granite tile. We decided to use it around our fireplace and hearth. We drove to Bloomington, about an hour drive each way, when Brett got home on Monday to get 20 pieces of black granite...we were desperate! They were going to lay the tile last week so we had to step on it if we wanted to make it happen. Here is a picture of our BEFORE fireplace...
Here is a picture of our eat-in-kitchen. They still have to finish laying the tile next week...
I promise to post some new pictures once everything is finished in mid April. We have almost finalized all of our rooms...just a few minor decisions such as faucets. Can't wait till it finally gets done and we can move to a new, nicer neighborhood!

It is going to look great in our new basement...if we ever make it to the dang place! Still over two months before we will be able to move into the condo. Mom and dad are coming up this weekend to help go over the contract with our builder and decide on a price, including the upgrades we have made to it. Keep your fingers crossed that we can all agree on something..that is key!
Please pray for Finnegan!! His friends and family have made a great effort to provide the best medical care for him and made it possible to have his parents by his side the whole time! A miracle will need to happen for Finnegan to be able to walk away from this! So...lets pray for one!

Brett didn't spend his 23rd birthday with me :(. He spent his birthday at the St. Louis Blues game sitting 4th row with my dad, brother, and Niesel drinking all the beer Scottrade Center could supply. That night was the night Brett asked my dad and my brother for their blessing to marry me. Brett was able to stop the word slurring long enough to ask their permission. My dad responded with a ..."Are you serious? Do you even need to ask?". My brother agreed that YES, they were so happy to welcome Brett into the family. However, with a moment to themselves my brother had to ask..."Did Courtney talk you into this? Are you sure this is something YOU want?" Thanks Lee :)! So Les and Lee decided to welcome Brett into the family...Palmer style! Brett got so hammered he couldn't even make it into training for his NEW job the next day....how professional! He says it was his best birthday and wishes he could have spent this one the same way!
