Domesitc and Loving It!

Hello!! Sheesh! I can't believe it has been a WEEK already since my last pop in! Work has been pretty hectic and then The Husby and I have been super busy at the house SOOOOO that means SOMETHING has to give and unfortunately that would be the lil' ol' bloggy here =(
This past weekend was VERY full -- I posted on FB about how God made me a girl for a reason because had I been a boy, I would have been a wimp! haha! I did some manual labor with the Hubster this weekend - ripped out some plants, dug a hole, planted a tree...you know the usual ;) I was SO exhausted! Oh and I realized how NOT strong I am! Nonetheless, supposedly, I was helpful =)


We...mostly The Hubs...pulled out some bushes from the front and trimmed back the palms....I realize that I missed the big palm tree with my phone picture but I am just loving how much cleaner the front of the house looks!

The grass is dying a bit but hey, it is winter! Oh that and we haven't watered on account of one of the sprinklers being busted.  We'll fix that eventually =) We are just hoping the grass comes back in the Spring and we won't have to resod! There are plans in the works for decorative curbing at the front of the house but that will probably wait until the Spring. We did this in one afternoon (Saturday). It was nice to have a little gratification. Now if only I could find more motivation to finish up projects INSIDE the house!

We finally hung curtains on the slider in the bedroom last night....truth be told - I LOVED having it open. So I'm thinking some nights we will probably leave them open but then again, it really depends on how The Husband feels about it. I love love LOVE natural lighting so on the weekends, all the windows and blinds are open! I know what you are thinking, I STILL need to share pictures of the master bed and bath with you...those are forthcoming. Honestly, I haven't shown you that room because I still have to find the comforter I made here.  It is still in a box in the craft room...which also hasn't been shown because it isn't completed....UGH! wow that paragraph made me want to go home immediately and get to work =) Oh well!!

Happy Wednesday!
