Brian must have caught a dozen Lady fish and then he "hooked up on" this flounder...which is in our freezer...which i won't be eating...!
...But mainly because we would want to miss seeing something like this! A sweet mother snapping shots of her daughter lounging on the beach...for her new facebook profile pic! Love it!
Around 9:00 we watched an elaborate firework production put on by these people:
Architect: Arthur Dyson
That lasted for hours, so when our ADD kicked in we carried on with a lavish display of our own: sparklers!!!
We did a little crabbing (This little guy looked like he already found the oil spill)
Apparently everyone else at the beach had the same idea! While we waited for our order, we sat at the bar and kicked back with a Peroni and a Pinot Grigio. Our relaxation was almost immediately interrupted by one particular homeowner who was determined to talk at us about his take on the BP OIL SPILL! He feels very strongly (at the top of his voice and his Pennsylvanian accent) that BP is getting taken to the cleaners and it is not their fault! It is just now occurring to me that he must be employed by BP....Pizza in hand and were headed to the condo! Can't wait to see our fabulous upgrade! We walk in the door and AHHHHHHH! There is fake ivy growing everywhere! I have never seen so many artificial plants in my life, they even had it draped all over the window treatments. An interior design nightmare!
I was picturing something more along the lines of this
Thank you Brian for making this so humorous!
It's a good thing we were here for the beach and not the condo. We took one step outside and it was all worth it! I want to go back!!!

Saturday Brian and I woke up and went out for some exercise, it was a beautiful morning, we were actually able to wear shorts all day! We got back to the house and made our morning ritual delicious pot of ,our favorite, We did not get to drink it here...
And while the roof was getting a makeover...there may have been a few projects going on inside!
This is one of our guest rooms. It's one of my favorite rooms because of the huge windows and how much natural light it gets...but I just couldn't stand the built in bookshelves. Brian and I agreed that they just had to come down. I love that Brian is just as impulsive as I am, and as soon as that decision was made those cabinets were out of there. The walls, were sanded, puttied, sanded, puttied, sanded, primed, painted, baseboards replaced, carpet finished...and then we got our beautiful room (finished pic's to come)!!!
But we couldn't stop there, oh no, we had to fit in a few more projects. One of the most important was the Fan Project. Remember this Deco gem? We decided not to spend the $ to get the one we really want so...with a little TLC and some serious skills by my husband, we've got ourselves a new fan!
