Then my prayers were answered, my favorite store in all of Jasper, this amazing little boutique located in the historic center of town called me in for an interview!! I went in an instantly clicked with the owner, she is wonderful and the store is such a creative environment and filled with soooo many beautiful things. The job consists of 2.5 days of work and off days that coincide with Pat's off days!! Since we get limited time together and he likes me at home this seemed like the perfect job and since it was the first one of the year I was really happy!
I walked out of the store with my starting date and a smile, as I was walking to my car I could see my phone in the front seat ringing so I quickly answered it, it was my dad's lovely girlfriend telling me she had found me a job! I couldn't believe it! She had gotten me an interview for a full time receptionist position at a dentist's office... What do I do? After a lot of thinking I decided to go to the interview this morning just to be polite and then I fell in love with the office and the people!!!!! AHHHH I'm so torn because this job pays almost quadruple the other job, but I will be working full time including Mondays (Pat's off day). Undecided. Luckily the dentist office is granting me a working interview tomorrow to see if I am cut out for office work. So who knows! Please Pray for Patrick and I as we try to make this decision! We are so blessed to have so many wonderful gifts in our life and now were waiting for a clear sign to see whats right for our family. I'll keep you all posted!

This Duvet Cover, the ivory one on top. From Overstock.com also affordable
Wouldn't they just be perfect together??? Especially with Ralph Lauren Cyrmic Silver Paint on the walls???? And maybe an accent wall of Mombassa Mist???
Also this week I think I'm going to start my bathroom renovation! I know my house is brand new and I already painted the bathroom once, but we picked the colors so hastily that generally I am unhappy with them... SO I'll take lots of pictures! DIY!!

The printer on the floor with paper thrown about. I Know that in an office there is going to be technical equipment. I fully understand this concept, but will somebody please tell me why I spent time and money decorating this office for Pat when he chooses to accessorize with a printer??? UGGGG and its been there a while.
Here is another one of my personal favorites. Yes the hamper may be full and yes I may be a little behind on laundry, but does it have to spill out onto the floor?? Can you not get it in the basket??? REALLY????
Ohh laides here is my favorite, this morning I came in to check my e-mail and play on facebook when I discovered this disgusting germ ridden reminder that I married a little boy with a big-boy job, A dirty used band-aid. Oh my word! How disgusting!
I know it may seem like I have a real problem with my husband, but really I am so thankful that all I have to gripe about are these little things. Our life is in fact pretty wonderful, I just had to vent and try and seek some sort of reassurance that my husband is not the only one with these silly little quirks.

Finished walls and floorStarting on Patrick's man station... work benchAdded a top and a storage shelf
So I came up with a design and my wonderful husband was able to bring it to life! What an amazing man! Here is my storage unit in the works
Our completed garage... a panoramic shot I know its kinda weird to be so proud of a garage but strangely I love it and I'm so glad we put in the hard work!
Onto the next project, up next is a real big one... the back yard fence. The good news is my dad, the closest person to Bob Villa that I know will be here for a whole weekend to help and teach us how to put up our own fence. For now I'm just glad its over as you can probably see the garage was a mess it was but it is all better now!

Even though the beach was cold it was still so amazing and romantic
Truly the most amazing scenery! I can't imagine what it would be like to live here and always be surrounded by beauty and history.My happy handsome husband loving the beach and smoking a cigar! Oh and I may look like the Gorton's Fisherman but you have to wear that to go deep sea fishing and since I love my husband (and he spent a whole day antique shopping) I agreed to go no matter how silly I looked!
Walker Point... summer home of the Bush family! The best part of the trip for these two Republicans!
Happy Labor Day!
