2 weekends

The weekend before last I flew to the Bahamas, Treasure Cay in Abacos, with some of my coworkers. It was a great time, we were there Thursday through Sunday and enjoyed the sunshine and beautiful beaches. It was somewhat of a girls weekend too :). Our former boss flew us out there in his Piper Cheyenne…it spoiled me because now I REALLY want a small plane and to learn how to fly. We flew direct from Montgomery and landed in the Bahamas 2 hours later, it was pretty much awesome. No big airports, no security lines. 


Bahamas!

I love the color of the water!

While I was soaking up some rays, Frank had a pretty eventful weekend too. It was Veteran’s day weekend, so he lead an F-16 flyover in downtown Montgomery for the Veteran’s Day parade that Friday. On Saturday he went to Athens, GA and did the flyover for the Auburn/Georgia football game.

He always does the fun stuff while I’m gone :(. I wish I could have been there with him in person, but at least I got to see some videos and photos. Below is the coverage from CBS.

This past weekend we worked all day Saturday and Sunday and managed to paint the fireplace, cut and glue beadboard around the island, work on the “man-closet”, clean the pool (I swear all the leaves that fell out of our neighbors tree fell into our pool), mow, choose tile for the hallway bathroom, do some car maintenance and cleaning, make multiple trips to home improvement stores, and a lot of other little things. Probably one of the more productive weekends we’ve had in a while. The hallway bathroom renovation will be starting Dec. 5th (tentatively), pretty excited about that! Once the hallway bath is done, the only major renovation left is the master bath…that’s going to be a big one too…

Before...it was a peachy tan color, yuck.

Although I don't LOVE painted fireplaces, this definitely beats the peachy color!

Gluing beadboard to the island

Beadboard is finally on the island, still have to add the trim...and I guess we'll be repainting the cabinets to match! Yes, our kitchen is a disaster area.
Today Frank is in Birmingham kayaking and mountain biking with one of his friends, must be nice to have all Monday’s off! Ha. He made me breakfast this morning, so I can’t complain too much….Even after I annoyed him with the alarm this morning by pressing snooze for 50 minutes!! I must have been out of it, because I only remember pressing snooze once. I am now on a 2-3 snooze limit...haha.

We both have a short week because of Thanksgiving, and we will be making the drive up to Michigan on Wednesday afternoon/Thurs. morning. I’m taking next Monday off, so we won’t be heading home until Monday morning. Can’t wait to eat some turkey and pumpkin pie!
