Busy but wonderful weekend!

Now that it is Sunday night and I'm relaxing on the couch, I realised what a busy, busy weekend we had!!  My weekend started on Friday.  I took the day off and went to the Southern Women's Show with one of my knitting friends, Julie.  We had a great day and  a wonderful lunch outside at a nice little restaurant in Mint Hill.

Saturday morning we had breakfast with our neighbors upstairs.  They are also building a new house.  We had breakfast at Skillets in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte.  It was a really nice time.  Then John and I left them and went over to the new house.  John hadn't been there all week.  They have gotten alot done this week:  windows, doors, roof is complete and plumbing is done.  Here is a photo from Saturday:

After we left the new house we headed up to Jenny and Kevin's house to pick up Owen for the afternoon.  Jenny and Kevin had some things they needed to get done and we kept Owen until Jenny came to pick him up around 5:30.  Owen kept Papa really busy while Nana was sewing Auntie Meg's Halloween costume.  I of course, took breaks to play with Owen (and to give Papa breaks).  That little boy really ran Papa ragged but he loved every minute of it!!

Owen was teasing us by acting like he was going to put the checker in his mouth.  As soon as he got it close to his mouth he would take it away!  He loves playing games!
 Owen loves to stack the checkers up and then knock them down.
Owen was getting tired (as you can see he needed his Nuk) and some cuddling with Nana while she was sewing.  He just sat on my lap like a good little boy and watching the sewing machine.  He was a good little boy! Jenny and Owen had dinner with John and I.  Jenny and I also went to Michael's and Target before dinner.

Today I woke up with a cold!  I had been feeling really good until today!  I slept late and then got up to take my shower and go knit with 2 other knitting friends at a coffee house called Madison's.  We thought we would try some where different.  It was really nice and relaxing!  Then I came home and sewed both of the sleeves on Megan's outer coat of her costume.  John and I had dinner and now I'm just chilling out and resting.

As you can see it was a really busy weekend, but a good one!

The place where the house stands is very lovely. Tall trees at the back and a huge space in front of the house make the whole place very welcoming, right, Sherri? It would be perfect if you love gardening. :) I'm certain that you and your family are enjoying the new house very much. I'd love to see some updated photos of this construction. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

It is the responsibility of homeowners to inspect the work frequently. If you are a non-technical homeowner and you know nothing about house construction, you will need to have constant communication with the contractor. Don't hesitate to ask many questions. Asking will help you gain knowledge so just keep on asking your trusted contractor until things are clear to you. This way, you will achieve satisfaction and peace of mind.

You’ve chosen a nice location for your house, and the house itself seems to be right at home (pun unintended). The roof looks great, and so are the windows. And from what I saw, the inside is also superb! Hope you are enjoying your lovely home!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
