pottery barn... eat your heart out!

Wanna see what I've been up to ALL week?... well, besides packing up and getting ready to head back to the sunshine.... who needs to buy furniture when you can build it?!!?

Ok, so I didn't exactly do the building part - that would be my handy hubby's work. But, I did put on 10 million coats of paint and stain and clear coat, etc. etc. etc.

In the end it will be worth it... she's a beauty, eh? We are excited to actually have an extra bedroom that will be our office and as Clint likes to say... "we'll be building a fortune on the desk we built ourselves."

Come on, you know you could see this in a store for like $1,000 at least! But then again, I know why it might cost that much because it takes a lot of work to make something look sooo good!

Ok, ok... enough about the desk. We have just been frantically trying to finish all of our many projects, get in as much time with the fam as possible, pack up all our stuff (twice as much as when we came) and get outta here ASAP. Looks like it will be Wednesday that we finally hit the road for reals. We plan on stopping in with T&E on Tuesday night. Can't wait for Tony's good cooking. And then, it will be... on the road again... I just can't wait to get on the road again...

Oh yeah- stay tuned for some exciting updates - Clint may be making a surprise appearance on this blog to tell of his latest crazy twist in the unpredictable lives of Clint and Jess. Oh, and we may be going to the rodeo again this weekend, so that'll make for some good stories!
