New Additions to Our Backyard!

New Additions to Our Backyard!

Since giving our outdoor living space a makeover, I have been on an outdoor high! Since my last update, the blueberry and hazelnut trees have been planted in large pots and I’m considering planting peach and apple trees since Jayden keeps asking for both of those fruits. Where am I gonna put them? I dunno,Continue Reading

Little Boys And Earrings

I had my ears pierced as a baby. Of course I don’t remember getting them done, so I guess it’s a good thing I got them done so early. But. I also feel like a little girl should get her ears pierced when she is ready and asks to have them pierced. That could beContinue Reading

Part 3: How Our Kmart Outdoor Living Space Makeover Came Together

So now that I have revealed our outdoor living space, it’s time I tell you how it all came together. It’s quite simple, if I spare the tantrums thrown in stores and my fear of not being able to complete the project in time, and worrying Greg about it all. So. I started by goingContinue Reading
