I love summer!

I have found myself reading a lot and let me tell you I have missed it so much. The last time I picked up a book and lost myself in it, was May of 2010. Yes, that’s right over 2 years, sad I know. I can’t believe it’s been that long, but between getting married and having a new born I just felt like I never had the time. But, who am I kidding, I am sure I could have found some time, but hey that’s why excuses where invented, so we can use them, duh! :-)

My aunt in law was getting rid of some stuff and in the box of stuff were some books. I picked a book started to read it, and couldn’t put it down until I finished it. I loved it!  So this inspired me to start a summer reading list. I have so far read “House Rules by Jodi Picoult” and next is “Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz”. I will update you on the books I read this summer and if you have any suggestions please let me know. I want to read at least 50 books this summer. I can do this! I love to read! Happy reading my fellow bloggers.

We just want to have fun and have some food in our tummies! (in case you’re wondering this is how we get when we don’t get fed.)

This weekend was the weekend to transform our front garden that we had been neglecting for 2.5 years now. The reason why it had been neglected for so long was because neither of us had the experience nor the will to take on such a task. I wanted our front yard to look great, but we didn’t want to pay a pro-landscaping company to do our little garden area. The other option was for us to tackle it ourselves, and we both kinda just put if off. Until we both had enough of all of our neighbors yards looking great and ours being the shabby not-so-great-looking yard. I started to seek opinions and ideas from everyone I knew. I dragged my so kind sister in law whom surprised us at Home Depot while we were picking out our plants to bring home. She was such a great resource, she knows a lot about plants and gardening, bless her heart. Thanks Kelly! You are great!

When we got all of our plants home it was time to see where all of our plants should go. I took this task on and let me tell you since we got so many free Day Lillies, I will be the house known as the ‘Day Lillies House’ on the block. I went from having a big bush of Day Lilies to have a “linear cluster of Day Lillies.”(My husbands reaction to my work of art.) I didn’t have any idea as to what goes where so I was willing to just wing it. And the final product of all that hard work this weekend, paid off. We think it looks great, and you know what, even if it doesn’t we get an A for effort. LOL. This weekend was so much fun, but let me tell you every single muscle in my body is sore, from all the work. I think this means I am extremely out of shape and maybe I should start hitting up the gym soon, or at least go for walks or something. I have posted some pictures of our hard work, let me know if you have any ideas or opinions on what we should add/remove to our garden. I love feedback good or bad. Cheers to our newly found gardening skills. What! Whaat!

Lately I have been spending a TON of time in front of my oh’ so awesome computer. I have a conflict with this though, I don’t really want to spend all that time marketing, emailing, socializing, etc…It’s driving me crazy! I feel like I have so much to do and not enough time in the day to do it all. But I have found the perfect end to my Friday, a bottle of wine and my wonderful husband (who is sitting directly across from me as I write) whom I have missed so much this whole week. So cheers to the end of a crazy, overworked week. And remember no matter how hard it may seem at times your loved ones will always make you happy, NOT the wine 😉
