weekly photo dump {week four}

Hi all,
I hope you had a great week!  Progress is happening at the Clark house.  The sheetrock and texture are just about DONE!  The contractors are stopping by on Saturday morning to finish sanding, and then that part is finished!!  I have to say, that I am so glad this part is almost done, because it is MESSY!!  So.much.dust.everywhere!!!!  I think I will be dusting for the next year.  The next step is doors (which should be arriving on November 6th).  It is a slow process for sure, but so happy to be making progress, one day at a time!

From left to right...
1.  The contractors had to cancel on Saturday, so I ran a bunch or errands and did my grocery shopping.  This was my lunch at 2:45 when I got home.
2.  Thankfully the contractors said they would work on Sunday, since they couldn't work on Saturday (due to the joint compound not being completely dry).  Here is Bella waiting for them to arrive.
3.  My fall issue of Magnolia Journal got misdirected during the hurricane.  I got it about 3 weeks late, and then got busy.  While I was stuck at home during the construction, I finally had a chance to look through it.
4.  The weather is cooling off here in TX.  We used our indoor fireplace for the first time (we have ordered the stacked stone for the front and I cannot wait for it to be pretty again!).
5.  They prepped everthing on Sunday for texture to begin on Monday, I didn't realize they wrapped  everthing.  Luckily I work from home, because I couldn't get to my stuff, (I did locate my toothbrush!!) LOL!
6.  We are super excited that Ashley and Nate are going to have a baby in March!  They found out the gender and did a reveal on Facebook...it's a GIRL!!!!
7.  Mike works nights a few nights every month.  Pete usually sleeps right next to me when Mike is not home.  Plus I have the pups and Dewey at the end of the bed.    
8.  I have been trying to eat healthier these days.  It has been a struggle since the flood.  It has been so easy to just order a pizza or get take out.  Things are slowing getting back to somewhat normal around here.
9.  The majority of my paper scrapbooks were ruined in the flood.  Mike and I were able to salvage about 2/3 of the photos.  Becky Higgins (Project Life), had a storewide sale a couple of weeks ago and I stocked up on products to get my photos protected and try to re-organize things.  Once I get started I will share my progress here on the blog. 

Enjoy Today!
