First and foremost, I am sorry again for the delay in updates. The Anderson Household has been super busy. We dont have internet at the house, so updating the blog can only happen while Im at work, and on my lunch breaks. So after a couple breaks I will hopefully be able to fill you in on our lives these past three months.
Last month we finally got our entertainment center finished. As I mentioned before, Kenny and my brother in-law built it. We then took it to a professional painter, where its finishing touches were completed. It is absolutely beautiful and completely changed the whole look of the living room. Thank you Pottery Barn for the design...and thank you Lord that we were able to make it for a 1/4 of the price it would have cost if we had actually bought it from Pottery Barn. I am so in love with this piece of work!
Right before we got the entertainment center back from the painting shop, we also received our new couches. I had been waiting on these for months.They are still fresh (a little stiff) so Kenny and I rotate seats daily to wear them in. I was so happy to have finally gotten rid of the old college couch...well at least its out of the house. The couch now resides in the "Mancave," making a beautiful addition to the tools and clutter. Anyone need a couch? :)
Next project to tackle was our landscaping. Let me remind you...we live on 2 full acres. So landscaping is not something we can due over a weekend. In fact every weekend we are cutting grass, pulling weeds, cleaning out the banana trees, burning branches, babying our fig and satsuma tree, planting new flowers, trees or shrubs. Thank goodness that we actually enjoy yard work. Truthfully, this is when Kenny and I probably spend most of our time together...and we love it!
Below is a couple pictures of some of the landscaping we have done...still much more to do on Deer Run Rd!
I show this picture now, because the green trim is our next project that we will be tackling on the whole house!
Agapanthus plants on the left side of the house. I love these durable plants!
