Date night

I haven't done a wardrobe post in awhile mostly because all I have worn lately is work clothes, but tonight is date night with the hubby so I finally got to dress up! Forgive the awful pictures. I wish my husband cared enough about my blog to take my pictures, but I don't think he even knows what a blog is. Also, I am not model...

(Shirt: Forever 21, Skirt: Dillards, Cardigan: Target, Necklace: Forever 21, Shoes: No idea, Ross maybe)
I have that "I've been standing on a 10ft ladder painting the outside of my house in 90 degree weather" tan and I love it!
Ready for a big date night to the Melting Pot!!!! :)

In Between Before and After

On a lot of blogs you don't get to see the in between stuff that goes on. You just see before and then you think magically after just happens, while I have learned lately after magically does not happen.

We still have to take out that half wall and the doorway part of the kitchen, but already it looks a lot more open!

All new plumbing, new toilet and partially new subfloor.
My dad also leveled the floors, well as much as you can level the floors in an old house. Jason's dad, Bob, our neighbors, and I worked more on painting the outside we got a lot done, but we still have a long way to go.

Next on the to do list wiring and electric and better supports for the ceiling. Then we can start putting everything back together!!

House Progress and Crafts for Sister

There will be no after picture today for several reasons.
1: We are not done painting yet
2: Dark grey won the poll, I planned on dark grey,
I bought lighter paint than I wanted because my dad said it w
ill be darker when you get it on, but it was somehow was lighter when we got it on so we
will be tinting what we have darker for the finish coat. and pray it looks good!

But today was an awesome day! I guess I cannot be an OU hater anymore because those students were so sweet, nice, and tons of help!!

Even though I do not have house pictures today I do have craft pictures for you!!! Since my sister is about to leave (Wednesday) and her birthday is on Friday instead of mailing her, her presents I just made them while she was here, take a look....

I made the skirt and it has pockets!!!
Flower Bracelet
Flower Hair Clip
I also am making her one more skirt if I have time before she leaves!

Nappy Birfday Sister, I wuv you!
