Weekend by the Numbers
Stephanie at Hand Gallop has these great little “weekend by the numbers” posts that I always enjoy reading. She somehow makes all the numbers even out, because she’s a rock star. They’re cute & well planned out posts.
I, on the other hand, am all “I did things this weekend and there were numbers!” Expect no cuteness here. My Dad was visiting Austin-town this weekend and helped me on a ton of house stuff. He builds fancy custom homes and I assure you is much better at tiling floor than me.
Anyway, here’s my weekend:
0 nerd horses ridden (or naps taken).
1 motivational photo saved from Instagram.
2 idiotic dogs “helping” with yard work.
3 (combined) days spent with my Dad.
4 1960’s light fixtures replaced.
5 built in shelves (out of like a million) painted.
5 cabinets of “extra” horse item storing in my garage.
6… 7… 9… We don’t count anymore saddle pads
10 door knobs replaced from brass/antique/silver finishings to something that actually all matched.
1 exponentially awesome outdoor bar restored by my Dad
1 exceptionally large glass of wine to be drunk this evening while I contemplate all the other projects on the list!

Wow, I love the outdoor bar!
Busy weekend! How fun to have your Dad in town and added bonus that he’s handy!
I’m so excited about those shelves!
You and me both! I’m going to need more books 😀
Damn girl! Also, I would literally pass the f out if I had the opportunity to have that much storage for my horse stuff in the garage.
But you live in Texas, so I’d probably also pass out thinking about the fact that I could find a scorpion in that stuff… and then come to and carpet bomb the place with bug spray and move right in. 😉
That’s one advantage of living by yourself… all the storage! Ain’t nobody gonna tall me I have too many saddle pads. 😉
No scorpion sightings yet. I’m *thinking” that I’m in the clear, but getting on a pest control plan is on the list this week.
Damn, that outdoor bar! And those bookcases! Soooo awesome!
I am jealous of your garage storage for horse stuff. I thought I had it good with a whole wire shelf in the garage!
Somebody who used to own this house had to be into woodwork or perhaps just very organized, because it has a great series of shelving and tool organization.
I only WISH I could be so productive!!
I love all those cabinets in your garage. I need these at the barn.
I’m drooling over your shelves and storage. So nice!
That’s a level of productivity that I just can’t even comprehend. Congrats on getting so much done! Must have been great to have your dad around for a little bit. Supremely jealous of your garage and it’s storage!
All those built-ins! I love them! And um, any time you need some company to hang out at your swag outdoor bar, just let me know, and I will be there in approximately 8 hours. 😛
Built-in bookcases are the best thing ever! Well, the best non-horsey thing …
I had no idea your dad built homes — how cool! And handy right about now … lol
omg shelves, all i see are shelves – sooo many!!! but damn they are gonna look good when they are done! how awesome for your dad to come help out!!
That sounds/looks like a pretty successful weekend to me!
Um DROOL over your dad’s homes. Just wasted a solid half hour… And super jealous of all your storage!
you got tons done this weekend!
Your dogs look like a lot of fun, I bet they’re real characters!
I’m quite jealous of all your garage storage. That is fabulous!
