Patrick and I took off last weekend to have some fun! I went to Charleston, South Carolina for a bachelorette party weekend while Patrick went to Charlotte, North Carolina to hang out with the bachelor, his best friend. It was such a nice vacation and will probably be our only one until they get married in Napa Valley, California this October. We can’t wait! Weekend pics to come!
First Working Weekend
My parents came in town last Saturday to help as we begin renovations and improvements to our “new” house. It took a little while to get started but we were able to make some good progress…….much thanks to mom and dad!! They are both retired and were able to stay through most of the week to continue working on the house while we went to work at the office!
We had the hardwood floors refinished. They look great! Take a look at the before and after. Living room before…. heart pine Living room after!

The house needs a lot of work and the garden is terribly overgrown. Fortunately through it all we were able to see its potential! Here she is……what do you think?
