A Painted Thanksgiving!!!

Thank goodness this was a blurry picture but I think you can still see how excited I am about scraping the border off my new kitchen wall the wednesday night before Thanksgiving. Actually I really was excited about getting busy on the new house! Thats exactly what we did the entire Thanksgiving holiday. We have most of the kitchen painted and the den, hallway and my art studio.
I Love the color and was thrilled when it turned out to be the color I was hoping it would look like on the wall. We worked till about 8 p.m. on wednesday and came back early the next morning to start again. Daniel got up around 4 a.m. on Turkey day and made the dressing, and prepared the turkey. We loaded up both cars and took the Turkey up to the new house to cook it there while we worked.
And work we did. Daniel is covering the floor getting ready to paint the ceiling.
We worked up till 2 p.m. and loaded the Turkey and Dressing and went next door to my parent's new house to have our wonderful lunch.
Here is the Hubster carving the bird. Is he impressive or what? Not only can he remodel houses and he cooks a mean bird too! Mom's kitchen looks so pretty and the rest of the house too.

Yep, even Mom's furbaby was waiting patiently for some of the good stuff!!!
After a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner it was back to work time. I just love the pictures below of my Hub,,the window in the eating area in the new kitchen gets the late afternoon sun and it looks so cool.

Of course Daniel had to get a few of me too.

Over look my hair,,its called "the painter style", lol.
On friday, Mom and I ventured out to Lowes and I bought some new rugs for the kitchen and den. I also bought a air bed to put up at the new house and Daniel and I spent our first night in the new house friday night. Then we also spent saturday night there too. The bed was comfy and we were too wore out to drive home. We made a hugh dent in painting this week-end and also had a great time. Also,,we celebrated our 7 year wedding Anniversary on Thanksgiving Day too. What a way to celebrate, remodeling our new home.
I hope every one had a wonderful Holiday!!! I am tired tonight and back to work tomorrow, and more work next week-end,,but it sure is fun!!!

(Those rolls look like something I made over the weekend! hehe-- I say, "tear the top off and enjoy!" Painting is a chore but oh the result is so rewarding. You go girl. Let me know if you want me over there!! xoxo

Looks like you have a good start on your new home. It's fun to paint and work on a place when there's nothing there to get in the way. Plus your hubby cooked for you! He's a keeper! Happy Anniversary a little late.
