Wednesday Randoms + What we're working on + Before & After + His 2 cents

Woo woo, it’s Wednesday!! Halfway through the week which is flying by super fast! I hope your day has been amazing so far!

I’ve got so many randoms to share with you today, so let’s get right to them!

We’ve lucked out with the most perfect weather ever this week and I’m loving every minute of it. 55 degrees in mid to late January is A-Okay with me! Although, I did spy some cold weather creeping back into our forecast here soon, but for now I’ll take the 50’s!

The more walks we go on, the better! Notice the shorts? Yep, we’re taking advantage of these temperatures for as long as we can.

Another almost-4 miler in the books for us with another Charity Miles donation to ASPCA! Do you use Charity Miles yet? I love it and use it every single time I workout!

Remember how I said I can’t stop eating these little halo oranges? Our relationship is still going strong with no end in sight! These are my new sweet tooth craving salvation. Seriously, I’ve decided they’re nature’s very own version of sweet candy. My mom saved the day and halved her 5 pound bag of these with us over the weekend! I was more than happy to accept that generosity! 😉 They may last a few more days, but I can’t make any promises.

I forgot how much I love my food processor. I hadn’t used it in a little while until I made my potato soup the other day and fell right back in love. I can’t believe I haven’t used it in so long, but it’s going to make a comeback from here on out!

Also, I saw this the other day and realized that THIS would definitely be a great running motivator. I wonder who I can talk to about getting a taco stand set up on our river trail? I know plenty of runners who would celebrate such an amazing sight after those long runs! 😉

I haven’t updated you guys in a little bit on the house so it’s time to show you what we’ve been working on this week! We’re finally down to the last few projects and couldn’t be more excited!

We’re working on landscaping the backyard and just started tackling this pond in the past few days. The previous owner had the home professionally landscaped at one point but it hadn’t had any work done to it in quite some time. We’re hoping to get this spot figured out really soon, but aren’t 100% sure what we’ll do with it just yet. So, it’s currently a work-in-progress.

We also got to work again on the deck today. We’ve had it on hold because of the weather but finally got a break in the cold this week so we plan to have it finished up by tomorrow. (YAY!!)

This is our 2nd attempt at the railing stain color. We had it stained “Tugboat Gray” but it turned out to not do much for the deck color wise, which means re-staining had to happen. Yep, alllllllll those little tiny spindles had to be re-covered in the new stain color. Sounds fun, right? It wouldn’t be so bad if the deck didn’t wrap around the entire back of the house, but unfortunately it does. It will FINALLY be finished and complete by tomorrow and I’m jumping for joy! I know Nick is just as excited!

This guy really likes to make sure to stick around while we work to supervise. He approved of the new color and said it was our best choice yet. Good thing we have his 2 cents on this, not sure what we’d do without it. 😉

AND, Nick got to change out the master bath shower hardware this week too! It looks MUCH better! Brushed nickel again for the win!

We are getting closer and closer by the day with the projects in this house and can’t believe it’s almost time to list! Only a few more weeks and we’ll be good to go!

I’m off for dinner tonight and some yoga to wrap up the day. I’m hoping to get in a good run tomorrow because sunshine and warm weather is in our forecast! Can it just stay this way forever? Maybe Arkansas can get in that California state of mind for good! 😉

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!!
