It’s getting there…

It’s been a lonnnnng day.

We got up and went to Lowe’s and Costco with the parents (who are fantastic and an amazing help!  I’m a lucky girl!  Plus, they got us a fireplace today!).  Then we came home and my daddy and the fiance got to work on some roof repairs, while my mommy and I tackled the yard.

Remember how I showed you the yard the other day?

Here’s what it looks like today

DSCN4464(Those are all at least two or three feet tall).  My mom trimmed a ton of our trees while I was wrestling the weeds.

So the yard’s looking better, and I’m pretty sure I got a good workout too.  Win-win.

And we’ve got pretty much everything moved in!  Now it’s just putting it all away…

We’re still fridgeless (delivered tomorrow!  So excited!) so we hit up the co-op for some lunch

And I’m thinking about digging into the newest addition to the fruit bowl, courtesy of my parents…

  1. Pomegranites! I still havent had one this season. Not even a pom chobani

  2. Wow! You worked your butt off!

  3. Is your Mom busy next Monday? I have a huge juniper bush just waiting to be pulled out of my front yard 🙂
    When you get settled, let’s have big-head margaritas. Then, when I get settled, you can come to the East side and I’ll find something equally as cool for us to imbibe.

  4. Holy criminy, you all have been so busy!!! Don’t leave me out of your margarita party or I will drop a cranky toddler on yo ass.
