It is pleasantly warming up here. I got in the pool today for the first time since we've lived here!!! I told myself I was waiting until May, but I dipped my toes in and felt I could handle it. I think we are going to have a magnificent summer! Here is what we have been up to lately.
Last Saturday we headed to Verizon to update our phones. That is right ladies and gentleman, for the first time in his life Matt has a smart phone!! I think he is loving it. I really enjoy getting snapchats from his desk all day long! :P
It was prom for my sister so I got some great snapchats. Here's one.
I was able to watch walk up via the #cube on my laptop. Here is my cousin, Creighton,
and Jadyn. It had a little echo, but other than that it worked out great.
We went out for supper after that which I think was the first time we had gone out for supper just the two of us in our home city in a long time. I want to say two years, but I know that is a bit of an exaggeration. Then we walked through Hobby Lobby and I couldn't have been happier! :)
We decided we wanted to work on our backyard a little bit. We felt it was an easy enough project for us to tackle. Our plan is to add an open patio to put a table on so we can eat outside. It's so gorgeous here at night I want to eat outside every single day! So we put some plans into place and started tackling the project. Matt started last weekend. He found a rose he had to share with me.
The rose bush has since been torn up. He said he will replace it...We'll see...
I was able to help out with some of the work this weekend. On a trip to Home Depot this weekend I saw they had a big sale on flowers. I decided to try my hand at planting a few. I'm not expecting miracles, but we did add a little color to our front yard.
Matt felt it was necessary to buy a tamp on Saturday. He checked out his favorite shopping center (Craigslist) and saw someone had just put one up. He went to go get it, and the couple had just moved into a house previously owned by a Husker fan. The guy noticed Matt's license plate and decided we needed to also buy this flag from him. Matt was overjoyed. It was up all day Saturday, and we have already gotten some comments on it.
Also did you notice our walk way now has lights?? After six months, I felt it was necessary to add some lights to our front yard.
Well I am sure you have had enough of the front yard when the back yard is the project we are tackling. It doesn't look so great right now, but we are making progress.
We are ripping up the grass and moving the rocks back. Here is what it looked like after our first full day.
We will see if it is done before summer is over! :)
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
