Spring Projects

My parents were in town this weekend, and we had such a great time! They came to see our house and yard (and us, of course), and wanted to tackle some projects with us while they were here. Here's what we did:

Added plants (complete with drip system!!) and electricity to the fountain in the back corner.

Refurnished our patio furniture.

Added pots with plants to the backyard (also on the drip system!).

Built a shed in accordance with our HOA rules - thanks to Costco!

Rearranged pots and added (live) plants to them, and extended the drip system to the pots (so the plants won't die again - I'm not very responsible).

Can you tell I'm excited about the drip system?! Seriously - all of my potted plants died last year because I failed to water them. And finally, my other favorite project:

A laundry table complete with a hanging rod underneath to keep the clothes easy to iron!

Thank you so much to my AMAZING WONDERFUL PARENTS (and husband and friends, of course)!!
