Park & Pie

Yesterday the kids and I went consignment hunting! We love to find exceptional deals and either keep it the way it is or change it up. As we went hunting we were in the neighborhood of dads work, so he invited us to lunch at a nearby park. The kids had a very good time. Since we were on the hunt I didn't think to bring my camera! Thank goodness for my teenagers camera phone! Won't forget that again... Then today I decided to make a scrumptious dinner for my crew as they were all feeling a bit under the weather. What better way to make them all feel better then to have a homemade strawberry/rhubarb pie and some yummy to die for lasagna.. I think the kids loved it! Hope you don't get too hungry while looking (mom, lol).

Okay, okay I know I haven't updated lately. I have no excuses, sorry. This post is about my wonderful parents. Home is something to be treasured and to feel safe and comfortable. Home is where you know family is, whether they are blood or just like family. We'll my parents are HOMELESS right now...But this is going to be there home. This was there home prior to moving to east Tennessee. They used it as a rental property and unfortunately didn't have good luck with renters. So they are now moving back to North Carolina and are completely renovating the home. They took it down to the studs (yes I know I forgot to take pics) and now have sheet rock up and are preparing for all those finishing touches. They still have alot to do, but it is coming along nicely. We are excited for them, and I know they are excited and anxious to get back into THEIR home. We too will be making a new venture over the mountain as soon as the Lord will open the doors.

My dad working hard to finish the house!

This is the bathroom, see the new tub

This is where the washer & dryer will go

This if looking from the living room over into what will be the kitchen area

This is the master bedroom

Okay this isn't the house, but this is my little bug (can't you see her antennas?)

This is another bedroom/moms craft room (off limits to dad, lol)

Again looking out over the bar area from kitchen to living room
