weekly phone dump ~ may week {four}


From left to right:
1.  I ordered a new decal for my vehicle.  Cause I do LOVE my pit bulls.
2.  I needed to use up some blueberries, so I made some blueberry buckle.  My grandmother used to make this recipe a lot (she always had sweets to serve with coffee, which explains my love of sweets and coffee), I always think of her whenever I make it.
3.  Mike and I bought a LOT of paint on Friday night.  I was happy to hear that  Home Depot had a Memorial Day sale, so we saved some $$.  I think we ended up with 41 gallons total (I had to make 2 extra trips to get more) *what?!*
4.  Who needs an alarm clock on the weekends?  Not us.  We have 2 cute pups that wake us up at our normal work day time (well, Mike's work day wake up time).
5.  Of course I had to make some potato salad for Mike and I for our mini cookout (him and I).
6.  House painting began on Saturday morning, bright and early.  Don't these 2 look excited for the job ahead?
7.  Mike rented a paint sprayer from Home Depot,  that thing worked amazing!!  It still took a long time, but so much better then rolling it on.
8.  On Monday, Mike and I had to go to Lowe's to pick up a few items, so we decided to use the Chili's gift card I received as a Christmas gift, YUP, I hoard my gift cards, LOL!
9.  Here is our loot from Lowe's, nothing too exciting:  a replacement burner for our grill, a new light fixture for out back patio, some anchors and screws and a new light switch for our front lights (it blew out), that trip was much easier on the wallet!!.  

Enjoy Today!!

Those spray guns make outdoor painting so much easier. We did our whole house over one weekend after we had it rendered. I hate to think how long it would have taken if we had done it by hand.
I bet the house looks great now with a fresh coat of paint :)
