GE Never Looked So Good!

Well, we have only a few finishing touches left on in the newly painted office, and soon enough I'll have before and after pics, but for about a sneak peak?

Paint, paint and more paint...

Whew! What a weekend!

I have never done so much painting in my life! Our paneled wall office took over my life this past week. I started with the painting last week and today FINALLY finished it all up. As if it isn't hard enough painting paneling, it isn't easy trying to paint with 2 80lb weimeraners running around sticking their noses into everything, literally (see exhibit A).

Exhibit A:
Yes, that is paint on Rhett's nose, from where he pushed his way through the door I was painting...

In addition to dodging dogs, I was playing assistant wiring technician to Gregory (see exhibit B):

Yes, that's the hubby being the main wiring technician, running speaker wires through the attic for the new speaker system he just purchased. Please pay no attention to all the other stuff in that room, it's kinda the catch all room at the moment until we are able to disperse it all...

And to finish off the night, we started painting the rec room (exhibit c):

So apparently I like to start and end my day with painting...I think I might start my own business!!

Happy Sunday!

Worn out...

Man, what a weekend! I took a picture this weekend that pretty much sums it all up...

Everyone was exhausted...I'm sure the cat was somewhere close :). More pictures to come!!

We all lost a very, very dear friend yesterday...

Dr. Gene Sires was such a wonderful man and always a joy to be around. He always made you feel like the most special person in the world. We all loved him so much and will miss him tremendously. Gregory and I send our hearts out to the Sires' family and will be praying for them.

Dr. Sires was 59 years. old. That's him on the left with me and Mr. Hank Legare.

Let there be light!

Ok, so I am going in no particular order in terms of befores/afters...I'll just post as I take the pictures :).

This was another one of Gregory's "Wild Hairs" and apparently on his "to-do first" list. (I later found out it was because he wanted the original light for his new shed...)

So after ripping off the old light, realizing it needed a box in order to mount the new light, buying a box to mount the light, mounting the new light, and FINALLY taping and painting around the newly mounted light...WHA-LA! We had a bright, new, fancy light! And we love it. So here are the before, during and afters...




We think it turned out great! Lots more to do in the kitchen, but the light is a good start!!

The Yard....

So we've moved in and we are working on our projects.

There were so many "firsts" to consider, so we just started doing things as they popped into our heads. So after my awesome father-in-law (and mother-in-law) came up and cut down our forest of bushes; Gregory got a wild hair and decided to take down the horrible stable fences that served no purpose at all. So, without further ado...

Here's the Before (Pre-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):

AND, Here's the after (Post-awesome FIL/MIL and Gregory):

WOW! It's nice to be able to see the house, huh?! There is still a lot of work to do, but we're getting there. Hopefully, we can get it all landscaped by the end of the year! More befores/afters to come!!!
