It's All 1/2 Finished...

Where the heck did my 2 weeks go? I'm confused! Didn't I just get here? Now, I will have to head back home on Thursday. I'm not ready! We haven't finished 1/2 of what we wanted to accomplish. That means I will have to go home and leave Chris with a bunch of 1/2 finished projects. Poor guy-nothing like getting left to finish things on his own.

The supervisors have worked hard these two weeks though...

One project that did get finished. This corner needed to be cleaned and painted before the new gun safe could be put in place...

At least this got done. I wasn't going to let Chris put the gun safe in it's spot until I got the wall painted behind it. That thing was going to get moved once and once only!!
I think I forgot to mention that Chris hired some local kids to tear down the tin barn that was here...
It was in a horrible spot. I can't imagine why someone would put a barn 20 feet from the house? Anyway, neither of us wanted it there. It cut the property up and made it difficult to utilize the space we have available. The kids just have to come load this part on a trailer and haul it away. Their mom asked if they could have it-they have horses too. I told Chris to give it to them-I didn't want to reassemble it where we are going to put the new shelter.

I did get some of the house painted...

We both love the color!!

The boys are going to finish painting the house for me. I think they will do a good job. Hard work doesn't seem to be much of a problem for these two.

Now that the barn and crappy corral that was here are gone, this corner is where Chris' shop will go... This corner is where the new shelter and corrals will go...
Time and Money!! That is all it takes to get things the way you want them. Sometimes time becomes more important than money! Luckily, I am not worried about space to put in an arena at this time. We have one of those on either corner of the street we live on and both owners have said Megan and I are more than welcome to ride in them. People are so nice around here!

My Honey and I even got to get dressed up for the NRA Banquet last Friday...

We clean up pretty good huh? LOL!

1/2 done is better than nothing done, at least when you're leaving it to people that will finish it!

That colour on the house is SO much better :)

kdwhorses said...

Paige said...

The color looks so much better than I had pictured in my mind--I love it!

Mrs Mom said...

Holy crap look at all that is done already. Chris is going to need to come home with you just to get some rest! ;)

LOVE the color of the house, inside and out. Looks fantastic, and inviting. Cant wait to see how things look when y'all get it done there. Going to be amazing!

Girl, you are totally after my heart here...hehehe.. You two look fantastic for your NRA Dinner!!

Train Wreck said...

That is some safe!! I understand not wanting to move it more than once! Time does go by to fast when you are leaving someone you love!! I couldn't stand it!
Love that color of the house! You did a great job!
Wheet Whew! You are one hot couple!

I have to admit-I was a little skeptical about the color, but it looks so nice with the white trim and the gray shingles. Makes it easy to decide on the gray slate for the walkway and patio on the other side of the house. I'll add tons of color with flowers-LOL.

I thought you might enjoy the NRA comment Mrs Mom. We had a blast. Chris won a 50 cal. Encore Blackpowder rifle in the raffle. Neither of us blackpowder hunt, but it looks like we will be taking that up-LOL. Chris also picked up a Youth 20 Gauge for Megan. It's almost bird season, ya'know.

LMAO-We can cover our "rednecks" for special occasions. Of course, I might have been a tad overdressed, since almost everyone else was in jeans, but darn...I never get a chance to wear a dress anymore, so I jumped on the opportunity when I can-hehehe.

I really like the color on the house. It gives it a real homey feel. And yes, you clean up nicely; you look really nice in that dress.

Treasia said...

Love the color of the house. Very pretty. You don't look redneck in that dress pretty lady. Very handsome couple you make together.

Mrs Mom said...

Thank you kindly! and Have FFFUUUUNNNNNNNNN!!!!

Pony Girl said...

Wow, you look great, BEC! ;)
I am sorry you have to leave your man but it sounds like you had a good and productive time together. He's in Colorado, right? Are you eventually relocating there??

Vaquerogirl said...

You guys look great! I'm a member of the NRA too. My hubby is the local Rangemaster, we are firearm types!
Love the house! My favorite color!

Callie said...

There's never enough time to get it all done! Yes, yes, you both clean up well, LOL!

Mikey said...

You guys look great! And so does the house! Wow! Very cool. You did a lot of work in 2 weeks!! Time flies when you're having fun :)

I love that house color.
And I hear you about moving those safes. We need to get rid of the hideous brown scraggly carpet downstairs but weren't able to do it before we and said accesories moved in. Think that carpets pretty much there to stay now.
