House Projects

We've been doing all kinds of things around the house lately. 

We got a tv to go on the porch to enjoy as the weather cools down :)

We decided to paint our bedroom to open it up some. We had a dark brown accent wall and the other 3 walls were a lighter but still brown color. We went with gray and it looks amazing, we love it. We thought since we were painting it was also time to get rid of the Carolina blue bathroom we've had since we moved in. 

6 paint samples later we made a decision....

Old color... taping is the worst part of painting 

Now I'm on a mission to paint the whole house... except that the actual painting process isn't fun but it looks awesome when it's done. 

Like i said before we fixed up Trey an office and moved my craft stuff to the other room. That required getting rid of a lot of junk so that was nice! 

Trey has done some brewing projects - he built a fermentation box so that we no longer have to ferment beer in our downstairs bathroom. It has my parents old mini fridge on the back and insulation inside to cool the box and keep it cold to store the beer.

With many more projects on the way in the coming year!

Back to the Grind

 Back to school means back to our busy fall fun... football, dinner with friends, enjoying time outside as it cools down. 

We had dinner with Trey's family at Bida Manda one night to celebrate lots of promotions!

Trey works from home 1-2 days a week so we decided to change my craft area into a legit office for him. It's in the guest room so the dogs enjoy hanging out on the bed while he works. I bought a new rug to go next to the bed and now Vegas thinks she's young again and will jump up on the bed! 

So my craft room had to move to the other bedroom

We've started working on a few projects around the house with more in mind. Some home things, some beer related :)

We went out to dinner with Christy, Jonathan and Connor! 

And Christy and I get to take Connor on nice long walks in the afternoons :)

1st football game of the season! And we got to check out the freshly completed indoor practice facility

We took dinner to Kristen & Ryan at their new house and enjoyed the porch one evening!

For Labor Day we had a nice surf & turf dinner!

Beach Weekend

The last weekend in August we decided to enjoy one last summer beach weekend before football season starts back and life gets busy in the fall. We went for a walk on the beach Friday night after dinner and the sunset/moon were so beautiful. 

We lounged around for most of the weekend, took the dogs for walks on the beach, to play in the sound and just enjoyed family time. Doesn't get much better. 

 Vegas spotted Biddy kitty for the first time in a long time, she was excited :) 

Weekend at the River

My last weekend of freedom before heading back to work we headed a couple of hours east to the Pungo River. We stayed with Rick and Jennifer and her mom's trailer on the river. It was a gorgeous weekend, the boys did a lot of fishing while the girls got some sun and we all had plenty to drink. All while looking at gorgeous scenery.
