I have had a really good weekend so far! I took yesterday off from work. It was a much needed R & R day! I have been working so hard and I just needed a break. I went with Jenny and Owen to a fabric store in Gastonia, NC. They had so much there! Jenny got material for Baby Jack's Nursery. We then left and came back down to where I live in Mint Hill. We went to Texas Roadhouse for lunch. I swear that little Owen has a hollow leg! That boy can eat-LOL!! We then went to Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Old Navy. It was a really nice day! I came home and was tired so I took a nap.
Today John and I had to be up and ready for the Warranty man from True Homes. We have a flooring issue in our Master Bedroom and Bath and a hardware floor issue by the back door. The Warranty man agreed we have to have all our bedroom furniture moved out and the carpet pulled up and in the bath the tile removed and the underlayment (flooring under the carpet) screwed down properly. We are pretty sure one of the workers forgot to screw the underlayment down! It will be pretty messy but we don't want problems down the road.
After the warranty man left John and I ate breakfast and then we went outside to measure for a patio. We are thinking 18' wide by 25' long. I have a few subcontractors from work that will give me a good deal and one even said he would just charge me for materials, which I thought was very, very nice of him!! It is exciting to plan out the patio, gardens, walls, raised beds, etc. We also picked up some sticks that had fallen off the trees in the backyard. Teddy loved chasing all of them-LOL!!!
Here are some photos I took this morning while I was sitting at the breakfast room table watching the birds at the feeder:
Hope you have a great weekend!
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!
