This weekend was probably one of the most productive we’ve had in awhile! My mom came to visit, met up with some friends at the playground, painted a little and finally got around to the weed/forest we were starting to grow in our backyard..
This whole area was nothing but weeds. The neighbors said the previous owner tried to have a vegetable garden there but it never worked out. We are going to plant grass along the fence and hope for the best.
Those bushes should grow pretty tall and turn red in the fall- love! Hopefully the flowers will bloom and grow nicely as well. I haven’t had much luck with keeping my flowers alive but now that I am documenting it I should probably try a little bit harder. We still have that large area in the back to clean up (obviously).. My plan is to build a raised garden and start growing some fruits and vegetables. Hopefully by the spring/summer!
I love the way the painted doors look in the baby’s room so I decided to go ahead and paint Madeleine’s door as well. I have both the door and the closet door done in the nursery but I still haven’t decided if I am going to do both in Madeleine’s room. I plan on re-doing her room for her birthday so we will see when it all comes together.
That pretty much wraps up our weekend. Madeleine and I woke up on yesterday with stuffy noses so there have been lots of movie time the past two days. I don’t feel too bad considering it’s gross and rainy out today. Jeremy leaves for LA next week and we will have some friends and family visiting. That means it’s time for me to hit up Lowe’s and grab all of the paint he wouldn’t normally let me buy and get to work. PARTY TIME!
I’ve also made a small list of things that we have been loving this past month. Check back later this week for the post!!
