We have PROGRESS!!! On June 26th a crew came in and poured the footing for our dream home and since that date things have been happening so fast...which makes me a very happy camper!
I felt so bad for these guys because it was so hot out there but I guess they are use to it because they never complained.
On July 10th they had the "Safe Room" framed up and ready to be poured.
And on the 11th the framer's were framing the house.
By the end of the week this is what we have!!
Now I would say that is PROGRESS!
Work is very slow in the summer. DUH! When you take school picture's for a living and school is out during the summer, it's pretty much a no brainer! It's kinda nice to re-group...re-organize...& sleep in!!! Here is just a little bit of our slow paced...relaxing week.
(sorry for the blur...but you can get the idea)
YES THIS IS A ENTIRE VAULT FULL OF WINE!! AND NOW WE OWN EVERY BOTTLE!!
If you know Lonnie...you know that he can sale anything, but what you might not know is that he can get a bargain on just about anything too. Lonnie has an old friend that owned a liquor store in Norman for several years and he sold his building and was wanting to get rid of all the inventory. The building use to be an old bank. Lonnie stopped in to get me a few bottle's of wine and Rob took him over to the old vault and asked Lonnie how much he would give him for the entire room. Well after a couple of numbers were thrown out they settled on $250.00!!! Yes $250.00!!! There is approximately 500 bottles of wine here people! The bottle's ranged from $6.00 to $63.00...now I would call that a bargain!
With that much wine you need the proper wine glass! Just kidding...We bought it to put all of the wine corks in.
Now this is what I'm talking about! And yes that is Lonnie's redneck wine glass that he so proudly drinks his wine out of!
Saturday we got up and headed to the Local Farmer's Market. I was wanting to make some homemade Pico (Thank you Patty Moreno for the recipe!) Lonnie's childhood friend has a stand at the Norman Market
And here is the delicious Pico! YUMMY!
Later that afternoon we drove around Thunderbird Lake just for fun and we came upon this set-up. It just cracked me up! You know you're from Oklahoma when you hang window units out your car window! LOL!
Saturday night we went to the Casino to just hang out for a while and found out that Wade Bowen was in concert. Of course they were sold out, but Lonnie knew the lady at the ticket booth and got us tickets 4 rows from the stage! (Again another BARGAIN!!)
I know that this post is a little bit of picture overload but oh well what can I say ... I LOVE PICTURE'S
Thanks for stopping by...I hope you have a great week!
