Well, were able to find all the flooring we needed- hooray! 😀
It took lots and LOTS of phone calls, and going through countless emails and direct messages to figure out which stores had it in stock, and which stores would ship it us, but we got r’ dun and there are 47 boxes of item #9497 on the way- whew!
What’s that? You thought I only needed 17 boxes? Well, turns out, I actually needed 21 to finish the first floor and I decided to go ahead and get enough to install upstairs at some point too. That way, the whole entire house will have the exact same type of flooring, which is always fun.
I ended up getting 6 boxes from Charleston, SC, 12 boxes from Brenham, Texas, 12 boxes from Frisco, Texas, 15 boxes from Allen, Texas and 2 boxes from Monroe, North Carolina. And here’s the really fun part: since so much of is was marked down to $10.78/box, I was able to get all 47 additional boxes for almost the SAME PRICE I paid for the first (full price) 13 boxes I had here at the house. AMAZING!
Anywho- I’m looking forward to sharing some photos of it installed last this week, but in the meantime, just know I’m doing lots of happy dances on item #9497 over here! 😀
In non-flooring related news, have y’all tried Postagram? I saw an ad for it on Instagram a few weeks back and was instantly intrigued. In a nutshell, (and no, this is not a sponsored shout-out…I just genuinely love the service!) you download their app to your smartphone and use it to choose a postcard background. After that, you upload a photo from your camera roll, type out your message & address information, and pay ($2) for it to be mailed to the recipient. The two-dollar price tag might sound hefty to some, but I think it’s a super fun, once-in-a-while kind of thing and the photo pops out, so there’s a keepsake aspect too. Also, because it was such a convenient and quick process, I was able to surprise my mom with a message and photo from her grandson that I probably wouldn’t have if that ad hadn’t popped up right when it did.
Just thought I’d share in case it sounds fun to you too!
