We had a pretty busy weekend. Our original plan was to relax, watch a movie and not do much since last week was an especially busy week for us. But you know what they say about the best laid plans?...
On Saturday morning, I got up and made us our usual nutella banana crepes. You know its a family favorite when my daughter knows whats on the pan even before I am done making it :-). She's a smart one.
Anyways after breakfast, we were cleaning up the dishes and were about to go out for our family walk and the following conversation occurred:
J: So, it should be a pretty easy day today. We can go grocery shopping and come home to relax.
Me: OK. But I want to make a few stops and get some stuff for the front of the house.
J: (rolling his eyes) what now?
Me: Well, remember you agree to let me add more to the front of the house? Well, I want to do that today.
J: OK. I don't like this stuff (meaning DIY stuff) but I know it'll look nice and it makes you happy so let's do it!
Hubby scored points. He clearly knows the saying "happy wife, happy life" :-).
Anyways, 2-hours later, we had our rose bed. Excuse the picture quality. It was sunny and I failed to realize that there was a smudge (thanks JOE) on my camera lens.
|When I read up on this, it seemed like a quick 30-minute task. Ummm...this took TWO HOURS!!!|
|Granted, we had to take turns going back in the house since we didn't want JOE out in the sun too long.|
|Up close and personal. I think I'll add brighter colors to the bed. The purple came out too dark. Will give it a week and then decide.|
|The purple is starting to grow on me but still undecided. We planted red and pink roses.|
|Before and after shots. The top picture is from when we first planted the other stuff a few weeks ago. The after picture shows it all blooming. I love it!|
And since no post will be complete without my pretty little princess, here she is hanging on me. The child is practically GLUED to be! I love my mini-me :-).
Oh and 2 new statements she surprised us with this weekend?
"Give me that!" and "Hold this". She is constantly amazing me with her words!
|Told her to smile and this is what I got. Gotta love her sense of humor.|
Well, its a new week and we are that much closer to our vacation. YAY!!!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
