I woke up early on Saturday and Sunday...by choice. Crazy, I know.
The husband and I were determined to be productive this weekend. First, we hit up quite a few garage sales and a couple thrift stores on Saturday morning in our search to find some furniture for the house. (We were specifically in search of bedside tables. It was to a point of desperation really.) And then we tackled a bit of yard work on Sunday morning before church. (Oh, yeah...that should get me some bonus points, right? I got up extra early to be productive and still made it to church. Nice.)
Through our search we did indeed find some bedside tables. It's actually a group of nesting tables that we broke up to be used on either side of the bed. Check out our $35 in action:
I also picked up these fabulous ceramic elephants for no reason whatsoever. They cost me about ten bucks and I love them.
On Sunday we started making some progress on our chaotic yard. The previous owner planted peppers and all sorts of spices in the flower beds to the right of our driveway and most of it has died and is now completely overgrown with weeds. So Brent and I decided to start tackling the mess. It basically just consisted of pulling weeds, spraying weeds and pulling more weeds. Brent also trimmed our giant shrub.
Here's a peek at the progress:
The plan is to lay down some new mulch and plant a few flowers next weekend. We'll see if we are feeling as motivated then or not.
I also managed to work on a bit of the Fiesta Shower decorations for next weekend. Don't worry, they're looking good.
Until next time...
P.S. Just because I'm the one taking the pictures doesn't mean I didn't work equally as hard on the yard. Just wanted to make that clear.
