We have had the best weekend, our gorgeous and hilarious friends from our old haunt came down to see our new home and region ... we had the BEST time showing them around and being really proud of our new house and the lifestyle we are creating. I spent quite a bit of the time trying to persuade them to follow suit and move down this way unashamedly!
As such, the house reno's took a back set while we spent time enjoying their company and the surrounding countryside ... we are truly blessed to live in the Hawkes Bay, yeah I might have mentioned that once or twice already :) We did manage to select the carpet for the house, go to Rush Munro's for the ultimate in ice cream experience, find an amazing organic cheese shop which lead to superb pizzas for dinner, AND tick off several Autumn Bucket List items! Not bad, not bad at all.
Anyway, tomorrow things kick up a gear with the builders, electricians, and me with my paint brush all putting in a full week of work. Tomorrow I take to the kitchen to paint doors and windows in there along with a chalkboard idea I have seen on Pinterest. And in the afternoon, I will attack Ben's walls now that all the trim is finished and, as promised, I have a very cool idea from Pinterest for the finishing touches on his walls ;) It's going to be a BIG week.
