Weekend Reading

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Hey all! I’m so excited, tonight my guy and I are headed downtown to see Journey and Steve Miller Band rock at Mandalay Bay, it’s going to be so much fun! At last an opportunity to change out of paint and dust covered clothing…. New flooring and fixtures are getting installed next week at the house, I’ll share another update soon.

I hope to spend a few hours relaxing outdoors on Sunday, we’ve been going at such a fast pace these past two weeks. This outdoor scene looks like the perfect place to enjoy an August weekend!

Hello friends! This is the summer of back and forth and here we go again back to the desert to work on the fixer house. More popcorn ceilings to eliminate and walls to paint. Also new flooring going in once we demo the existing, I’ll have more to share next week. Our daughter is playing a role in a summer production of Grease this weekend, yes I will be quietly singing along to “Summer Lovin” and “Grease Lightning” in the dark audience… can’t help it!
