decisions, decisions

Work: ridiculously busy.
Life: not too exciting.
Renovating & decorating: nothing's completed--there are some projects in the works.

{kitchen backsplash}
My Christmas/birthday present from Mr. FC: a kitchen backsplash of my choosing. I know I want carrara marble. I just don't know what size. 1x2? 1x3? 2x3? 3x6? What?!

I've ordered this sample, due to arrive any day now:

Sheesh, there just aren't enough hours in the day.
