Spring is in the air!

Spring has officially arrived! But by the weather we had this past weekend you never would have known it. In the pictures below it looks gorgeous but I will say there were times that I thought I was going to get blown away or frost bite on my fingers. Despite the crazy weather we were determined to get the yard done and do a few other things around the house. It was totally worth it!

As I mentioned yesterday, Chris finally got rid of his p.o.s. and we bought him his first manly truck! We both absolutely love it and it has so much room its unbelievable! Chris has been keeping it clean and enjoying every second of it. It's his first time to have a brand new car smell (one of the greatest parts of buying something new). I am so thrilled that we were able to get this for him and its already come in handy when we had to load up all the plants and mulch!


This is our first spring in our house. Although the front landscaping was already done before we got there we weren't exactly in LOVE with it. It lacked color! We went back and forth debating on whether or not to redo the front. Here's the thing, our backyard has no landscaping what-so-ever and although we weren't thrilled with the front it was all ready done and didn't necessarily need to be changed. So should we focus on the back and do the front another time? Wait a second...we have a lab puppy whom loves to be outside in the backyard and has newly discovered the joys of digging. There was no way that we were going to invest in new plants and landscaping for the backyard, only for our money to be dug up by our beloved puppy. Not going to happen! So decision made...hold off and do the backyard next year when Brixie is a little older. So here is our progress after a long day of hard labor...

The new stuff going in...or part of it
Just part of the trash after digging stuff up




Our pretty azalea's

We trimmed up all the existing bushes, planted colorful items and added new mulch to the beds. We are really excited of results thus far but still have a few final touches to add. I can't wait to see it all grow! Now it really does feel like spring has arrived!

Ok so my time is up and I must get back to work. More pictures to come this week and more things to check off our never ending to-do list! xoxo
