Going Green

We're currently getting quotes to replace the old, icky carpeting on our stairs and throughout the upstairs of the house. If you look close, you can see how worn out it is. The movers didn't help when they pulled dolly's up the stairs and tore up the edges of the rug.

It's just plain dirty and gross too.

We found a "Green" carpet that we liked at Lowe's yesterday. We didn't intentionally try to go Green. But we happened to see it, and guess what? It was cheaper than the other carpeting we were looking at! Seems like a win-win to me. It's made out of old recycled plastic bottles. You wouldn't know it by touching it though, it just feels like a normal rug.

This is the pattern that we liked.

And here's Eric pretending to be Vanna White. We're hoping to get the rug project done by the end of next month.

Speaking of new things, we thought it was time to get an outdoor thermometer that actually worked. We got it last weekend when it was much warmer. It hasn't gone much above 40 since that day...
