So this weekend went by fast! We did a lot of work around the house! It was a fun and rewarding weekend for us both! We managed to get the front half of the front yard resoded with St Augustine grass. We went to Lowe's and got 2 pallets...Yes 2! It was crazy..when we went their the second time to get our second pallet there was like 18 pallets of grass...when we picked up the rest of our palet (yes it took 2 trips to get 1 palet home....it weighs a TON...i guess more like 2-3 tons!) there was only 1 palet left. SO I guess everyone in Waco was in the same boat we were! So YEA we have grass now in our front yard! I'm thinking yard of the month for sure! Then the rest of Saturday after laying 340 pieces of grass...yes you heard me right...we went to HEB to get some goodies to go over to our friends house to watch the Derby. I made a Lowe's family recipe....redneck potatoes! They turned out pretty good...even if Jared's first response was...I hope this is atetable. Yes he informed me i made a big mistake by empting the bag of crab boil into the pot instead of just leaving it in the bag to boil with the potatoes. OOPS.. but they were still good...we just washed off the little beads. So before we left HEB we...uumm...had a weak moment...i guess that is what you can call it...a weak moment...It's bad when we both have one you know! Normally I can talk Jared out of something as he can with me too! But oh man...when we both have one....yup it's bad! Well after all this i'm sure you are curious....Well we broke down and bought patio furniture! We've been looking for quite some time now and we keep comparing it to the furniture that was at HEB. I know what you're thinking...HEB is a grocery store...not patio furniture outlet! But i'm serious...it's GREAT stuff!!! It will last us till our platinum wedding anniversary! So needless to say we have enjoyed already 1 meal and 1 splendid evening on our patio in our new furniture!
So Sunday roles around we go to church and then come home and have lunch...On our new patio furniture. It was great! The weather today has been so AMAZING! in the low 70's and in the evening in the 60's! PERFECT patio weather! So after lunch back to work!! I'm telling you we are BIG ants just moving/working/all the time! So i washed my car....it was so bad...so muddy from a weak of rain...and working at a barn! So now it's spotless...for a day! And I even washed Jared's truck...that is so deserving of Wife of the month!!!! So while i was washing cars Jared was building or tinkering as he likes to call it. He built a table for my plants in the back yard! It's so cute! He used his remaining fence pickets and built it! (we're looking forward to getting some more! Perfect timing mom and dad!!! he has one more to build) He even decked it out with some stars! So fitting with our decor! So after this long post....hope you enjoy the pictures!
Oh and we also got new cushions for the wicker chairs! So fiesta!! Oh and Browning says hi!

- A photo is a freezed moment in time that can bring back an emotion, a smell, an age, a place that is meaningful to you and most important family memories. I hope to capture those memories! I have just dived into the world of photography and am LOVING it! Enjoy the pics!
