Fun Updates

I FORGOT:
I initially forgot to mention another fun part of my weekend, probably the BEST part of my weekend in fact. I went out to a lovely dinner to Outback with some people from work...Keith, Wade and fam. These people are the best and the dinner was the BEST. (was that good Keith?)

So, Mike and I had a fun weekend...so I figured I should blog about it.




On Saturday morning Mike and I went out to our house and got to pick out our landscaping. By landscaping, I mean Las Vegas style-landscaping. We picked out what color rocks we were going to use (red-ish ones), we picked out where our 15 x 20 grass-like turf was going to go, we picked out where to put our two African Sumac trees and picked 10 bushes! It was so fun. This is what our house looked like when we visited it on Saturday. They were just about ready to start texturizing the walls :)

We also got invited by our coustins Jeff and Aleena Hill to see Mystere. It was TOTALLY awesome. We loved it and were amazed and bizarre things people can do with their bodies. haha.
This last picture is just a picture for my friend Lyndsey. I told her I would post a picture of me with my leggings on. haha.

You look so cute in your leggings, you could star in Cirque du Soleil Mystere as . . . Legging-Girl!
The house looks fabulous. The landscaping, Vegas-style sounds fun! I love the fact that you get to choose rock colors and placement of artificial turf. No mowing, ever! Hurray!

Ten whole bushes, just for you! I love the idea of picking it all out! Even better -- the builders will plant them in your red rocks, won't they? This just gets better and better. And Mike, the house looks ever-so-much different from the last picture! Total progress!

Your house looks so nice and it is huge!!! It makes me want to move somewhere where we can actually afford something other than a tiny shack. Oh well! We are thinking about coming out to Vegas for the MWC Tournament so if we do we will definetly have to see the house!! xx

Hi! The house looks like its coming along well, I can't wait to see it finished! I'm totally jealous of the leggings, I still haven't gotten up the guts to give it a try, luckily its still snowing here so I have a little longer to muster up the courage.

You blogged about your "fun" weekend but forgot to mention dinner at the Outback.....that really hurts.

The Holland Family! said...

Fun weekend! You look darling in legging! I wish I could pull off that look.

Jill said...

Glad for the Outback update. You really DID have a great weekend. Hope you had a happy Valentine's Day. For a laugh, read Jan's comment on my Vday blog.

The house looks awesome! As I look out at our 3 acres of brown muddy grass, the concept of red rocks and a piece of turf sounds fabulous! I love that you perceive the whole process of building/landscaping your house as a grand adventure! Gordon actually almost passed out when we were buying our first house. We were signing the papers at closing and he got all pale and faint. The lawyer had to let him lie down and get him something to drink. It was very funny. To me.

Cummards said...

I didn't even see you guys at the game! But at least we won, thats the important part right?! Hopefully work is a little better now..haha. I will try to send you the necklace and earrings, but honestly...I'm so bad at stuff like that it will probably get to you quicker if I just bring it to the tournament. I'm sure I will just keep forgetting to put it in the mail. Just keep reminding me! It was so fun to see you, so glad you came over to play with us! See ya soon!

ok, we are hurt too. Even after Keith had to ask you to mention Outback, the Dixon's don't even get a shout out. Was our kid that bad?!?!?!?!
