I decided to go with the tumbled travertine for the fireplace surround. I was a bit worried that soot and ash from the fireplace would get it all dirty, but I was told that if I put a sealer on it and then seal it every year, it will be okay. Fingers crossed!

Today framing and molding is going in and the tiling starts on Thursday. Woo hoo!
In other exciting news, Baxter got a spring haircut today. It was his first in about 5 months so "the man" was really overdue. I may be a proud mama, but I think he looks so handsome!
