All Work & No Play

Metal Shelf Brackets


Another weekend bites the dust.  There just isn’t ever enough time to squeeze in all the things we want/need to do.  Good news to pass along though is that our daughter went to district band competitions this weekend and will proceed to state! I was told that was pretty unheard of for a freshman.  So proud!  Our son also accompanied his girlfriend to prom this weekend.  They looked amazing, but I am a bit impartial.

Fixer Upper at the lake


Late last year we purchased a fixer upper at the lake. Needless to say, it’d seen its better days being that it had been vacant for about 10 years.  Not only did it need repairs, but in desperate need of an update.  After having to nearly gut it, it’s starting to come together room by room. The bathroom is close to completed and i couldn’t be happier with the look.  Stay tuned for updates!
