The hubs and I took advantage of our amazing weather this weekend by going to a really affordable nursery and putting our tax return to good use...buying lots of plants for our backyard (which has had NUTHIN in it for the past 2 years)! While at the nursery I saw this neat display of bird feeders/nests and couldn't help but, snap a few pictures against the beautiful blue sky. I think these shots are kinda cool!
For kicks and giggles I edited this shot in BW as well. I like them both a lot! Which do you prefer?
How beautiful is the sky behind Daddy and Daisy! I LOVE this shot! I just wish I didn't cut my hubby's feet off in this shot but, the angle was tricky and I wasn't able to get them in. Boo. Bad photographer, bad.
While waiting in the car for Daddy to have the nursery workers load up a 400 pound maple tree I snapped a shot of my aviators. I was pleasantly surprised by this shot. I dig it!
The barn shot from my last post without the verse on top. Seriously, could those skies BE ANY bluer??
We have had a tiny, ugly stock light in our living room since we moved in 2 years ago. I have been on the prowl for a nice, affordable ceiling fan for a long time and finally found one at Home Depot this weekend. I was very happy with how well it transformed the space...no one else would notice but, I certainly do! It will also cut our cooling costs a lot this Summer. Hooray for savings! lol
Another light we have needed is a bigger back patio light. The one we have shown was SO tiny and hardly put off any light when it was dark out. We bought two different lights and though the second one shown here is very nice we went with the first because it goes with the style of our home and yard more. Again, I have to brag about my husband really quick. All of these projects would sit around FOREVER if it were up to me to get them done. My hubby is an incredibly hard worker and a super sharp do it yourself-er. He has a lot of energy and loves projects so whatever I need done he does. What girl doesn't like that! I am blessed. No doubt about it!
Daisy LOVES her new water activity center that she got from her Aunt Kathy and Uncle Mike. As soon as the weather is nice enough consistently we are going to move it outside and fill it up with water. She'll have so much fun! For now she is enjoying the cheerios that I stick in the different holes. hahaha
We finally took down the party decorations since Daisy's birthday was Thursday. I was sad to see everything go. It was so girly and cute in the house. Oh well, there is always next year and Daisy sure loved playing with everything that I took down!
The biggest thing we can check off is that we have really tackled our back yard landscape. We previously only had one maple tree out back and that was it! After this weekend, we picked out a lot of shrubs and plants and I designed our landscape and my awesome hubby did ALL the work..(.though I did have to sit on the maple tree at one point to hold it down...yah, I must weigh a lot..shhh). We have made some serious progress! I am thrilled...LOTS of pictures of this to come soon. Happy, busy, sunny weekend!! It feels SO good to check things off! YEAH!
