I KNOW, I KNOW I NEED TO POST!!!

But nothing real exciting is going on. So I'm posting about an outside renovation and I'm sure you all will be soooo impressed.......oh well I am anyway. As always I forgot a before picture

so the afters are all you see. And I still have some work to do like painting the bench (that was my Great Grandma's) and getting some flowers planted and praying that I can keep them alive!!! So here you go our "new front porch"!!!!

Let me explain the before if I can. There were 3 more of those red bushes going all the way around and 2 huge square green bushes where the chairs now are. You just felt very closed in and trapped. I'm really liking the makeover and will like it more when I get some flowers planted.

Next project includes covering that hidious post!!! And I think I'm going to call around about new windows. Anybody had any window work done lately???

Next week I promise to have better pics. We are headed to the carnival tonight and Riley turns 3 on Monday so depending on the weather we might do something special for her this weekend or we might have to wait till next weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, try not to get too soggy!!!

Beautiful!!! We had a post like that at our last house in Enid. We replaced it with a column. It was super easy and under $100. Good luck with the windows!!
