More work on the outdoor kitchen :) Babysitting the furry children next door! Happy Birthday Allissa!

 Friday morning we headed out for Carson City Lowe's. First was a stop at Walmart for some groceries. Once we finished there we were headed for Lowe's and it was still early. Ken said to do an online order for Total Wine in Reno, as we knew it would be done by the time we were going to get there. Who am I to argue, right?! 

We stopped at Lowe's and got the piece of roofing we needed so he could finish the roofing. We bought 10 2x4's for the framing of the windows. $166.00 the cheapest yet, but we really didn't have much. 

We headed over to Total Wine and then it was time for dinner on the way home. Betsy's Big Kitchen never seems to disappoint and Ken had lunch for the next day. 

Again, the day was pretty much done by the time we got home. We headed over to John and Karen's for Happy Hour. John was home as they were leaving Sunday to head for Oklahoma. They are going to see John's first grand son and then to another part of OK to see his son, Jesse graduate college. They'll be gone about 2 weeks so we are baby sitting the pups at their house. 

Ken got the roof finished and then started on the framing of the windows and walls. Looking good! 

It's coming together nicely..roof is on 

Window is framed for the red window๐Ÿ˜€  He'll put that in later when
we do that wall as it's only single pane..

We have a framed in window! ๐Ÿ˜

How it looks from the back porch so far 

Because the wind was so bad Ken put a tarp up..sure made the difference 
today! You can see how the wind is pushing the tarp in!

We have two windows in!!

The back wall..

Sunday we went over for Happy Hour with the furry kids. We weren't going to stay the night but Mugsy looked so depressed I told Ken let's go home and have dinner then come back and stay. Yep, Mugsy has me wrapped. LOL. He crawled in-between Ken and me and then by morning he was on my side under the covers..such a sweetie. ๐Ÿ’–

We were going to visit Ken's mom today, but it didn't work out with what she has going on so we'll go next week. She sounds good though. 

Tomorrow we're headed for Lowe's to pick up the wood we want for the walls ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Not quite sure what that is but we'll come up with something. Actually had Happy Hour in the outside kitchen and came up with what we want. ๐Ÿ˜

Today is Jacob's sweetie, Allissa's 21st birthday! 

Happy 21st Birthday Allissa!! We love you! ๐Ÿ’—

We're at John and Karen's house and will be spending the night with the pups. Ken found some fencing that needs repairing to make sure Mugsy doesn't get out, so he's working on that in this miserable wind! 

Mugsy ๐Ÿ’™

Have a good night! He just came in! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿบ๐Ÿท


  1. The kitchen is really coming along! I bet it is nice to have that tarp up and work out of the wind.

    1. Oh it was nice to have the tarp up! The winds were grueling all day! Yep I'm really loving the kitchen :)

  2. Awww Mugsy is a cutie. I'm always wrapped around some pups paw!

    1. Mugsy knows I'm wrapped..he's such a lover and just too cute :)

  3. Happy birthday Allissa! The kitchen is going to be so nice. And who can resist Mugsy? No one! Elva

    1. I'm loving the kitchen so far! Yep, Mugsy is very hard to resist. Especially when he's on my side of the bed under the covers LOL.

  4. That outdoor kitchen is moving right along! Wow! It's going to be great! Oh my goodness, look at little Mugsy! She's adorable. She must be tiny, I can't even see her back. ♥

    1. I'm loving the way it's turning out...Thank you! Mugsy's not that tiny, just a perfect size :) Love when he snuggles :)
