Spring is here! Gardening time

Today, I woke up in a weird mood. Ok. I’m exhausted. I have not been sleeping well at all, but I didn’t let that stop me. So I headed to my home away from home, Home Depot. A few weeks ago, my dad and I took all the plants out of the front yard. It looked amazing just having those dead ugly thorn bushes gone!

I found some pretty plants, and got to planting đŸ™‚

I know it doesn’t look like much, but the before is NOT good. I even had several neighbors tell me how they were glad that those bushes are gone haha. me too!

ugly before


I planted a bunch of perennials. I didn’t want to plant too much each year


I do have a few pots on the front porch and on the deck in the back


I LOVE my new “ace of hearts” redbud back there


Also, I picked up a hibiscus for mother’s day for my mom


I also got the grass cut and trimmed. Lots of time outside, which helped my spirits a lot!

(sorry for the bad pics. all taken from my phone. oh well!)

Question for you:

Do you like to work out in the yard?
Do you grow any of your own fruits, veggies, or herbs?

Breakfast was the usual

Lots on the TO DO LIST: kohls, target, and jcpennys

At Kohls I got an american flag, necklace, easter decoration, and kitchen rug for $7 BUCKS!!!! I had $10 mailed to me and when I returned kitchen towels, I got $15 back.  Love getting deals

Lunch was leftover spinach salad and watermelon. And then it was off to my house! My dad and brother have the ceiling and 2 1/2 walls up, just 1 1/2 to go!

I also got my garage cleaned out. And by that I mean I moved the finished cabinets to the basement to give more room out there.

I then attached this part of the back yard.

all the ivy on the left is gone. I saw lots of bugs and worms and I didnt scream once haha

I will show updated pictures, when i attack the rest!

Then it was time for yoga! Oh boy did I need this. I even accepted downward dog, which im not the biggest fan of.

ANNNDDD then this might have happened

Yep. more banana bread.

Even better the second time around. I added vanilla extract this time,  more yogurt,  and baked for 25 minutes. It was moist and perfect.

Now I am watching Star Wars Episode III: revenge of the sith. Yes I have a small huge crush on Hayden


Question for you:
