It's Good to Touch the Green, Green Grass of Home
While I've got nothing on Tom Jones, I most certainly have some green, green grass at my home! First thing this morning, when what to my wondering eyes should appear but a not-so-miniature truck from Henderson Turf Farms ! GreenPro wasn't far behind with th...

Inside in January!
Ugh! Not spending any time at all inside of the house has really crimped our ability to post updates! We simply don't have much to say (as crazy as that sounds)! We've mostly been spending our time working on updates to our existing house to (hopefully) hel...

During our pre-drywall meeting, we tried to captures pictures of every wall and ceiling for later reference. I have plans of putting in more outlets and adding some additional network ports, so having an idea what might be in the way should come in very han...

Is That Green on the Horizon?
Just let me say how sick I am of dirt. Piles of dirt. Muddy yucky gross dirt. We've been surrounded by a dirt moat for the last two and half months - but maybe, just maybe, the end is in sight. Take a look at what just happened! MISSING: One big, ugly pile ...

We Chose Tuft & Needle
New mattress shopping sucks. Based on the variations in models, it is almost impossible to comparison shop for mattress with any degree of reliability. And they are all ridiculously expensive. Our last mattress was a super deep, super expensive, pillow top ...

Closing Week!
It's like Shark Week, but only better - at least in our eyes! We're closing this week and will be finally getting to post some complete interior pictures of all of the finished work! The bad part about closing in January is that they won't be able to do the...

I know the updates have been lagging, but we haven't gotten much time to spend visiting the house with the holidays, so we've been relying on updates from our PM more than usual. The warm weather has been helpful with much of the exterior work that has been...

You know we're lacking effort when, after spending 30 minutes exploring inside our new house (with our PM and his assistant, per the contract) we only emerged with one picture. And its of the outside. We're failing.

Stone Creek Boulevard Progress Update
Rumor has it that we are "in week 4" - from what I understand, that means we are about four weeks out from breaking ground. WAHOO! Of course - it's still four weeks away, but seeing as how we still haven't sold our house, we are pretty okay with it! Our fri...

Fast and friendly - a reasonable alternative to changing the oil yourself, plus they offer free fluid refills and tire pressure checks in-between oil changes. Of course you're going to get asked about recommended services and the air filter - that's just part of the service. But overall, wouldn't you rather be reminded and be able to say no than forget? Just one caution - avoid their wipers, they really do suck.

Great place for the younger crowd to burn off some energy! (probably 2-10ish) Not free, but worth it, especially when it's rainy or cold! Check the website for open bounce times, it often booked for parties (can't imagine why!).

Hard to claim that TH is exceptional or unique, but it a bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich on a cheddar cheese bagel is like a good friend you can always count on! For coffee, it's hard to beat a double-double!

You want atmosphere, go to a real, sit down place. You want good pizza (especially thin crust), come here! And don't forget the cheezy bread!

Nothing worth raving about - it's just food...unless your a toddler who loves noodles. Then, Fazoli's is the bees-knees and you simply can't get enough. Away's remember, Tuesday is kids night and the little one's eat for .99!

A great little place that serves healthy portions for patrons with an appetite! Good bar-b-que, chicken and sausage. Ribs were ok (a little dry, but that was a good excuse to add plenty of their fantastic sauce!). Plus, I got to keep the cup! (Ok, not a keepsake I'll treasure for years, but still something fun....and free.)
