BIG news!!

Well, it’s been four months since I started this blog…and it’s been four months since my last post.  For those of you who follow me “regularly”, I apologize.  Profusely.  It was not my intent to go dormant for so long, but sometimes life happens.  And sometimes, you spend THREE  MONTHS sicker than a dog.  Yes, that’s right.  Our blissful world of twins is going to have one more added!  Now that the ineptly named morning sickness has subsided (seriously, mine was every-waking-second sickness), I feel I can conquer the world once again!  Unfortunately our spring yard plans have been put on hold for another year, but there are plenty of other small-ish projects to post about! 


Spring Projects

Though we have had a very cold winter, I know that spring is not far away!  The last week, we had some very nice, warmer days, and while playing with the girls outside, J and I discussed the plans for our yard that we want to tackle this year.  I am a habitual, “bite off more than you can chew”er, which always leads to getting overwhelmed and not actually completing anything.  Honestly, this is our first house, so we are learning as we go. This year, though, I feel confident we have a manageable list!  Even better, I will track some of the progress here!

Our front yard:

  • Remove evergreen bush
  • Build flower bed

Our back yard:

  • Remove plum bush
  • Replace fence
  • Landscape side of house
  • Install raised bed on side of house  (We are only going to install the bed this year.  We looked at this project realistically and decided installing and planting within the next two months would be too much.)

With the exception of installing a new fence, all of these projects are going to be DIY for us!  I am uber excited about this!!   It is cloudy, and a little snowy here again today, but I am hoping as the weather warms this week I will be able to get out and take some “before” pictures, as well as a (planning) field trip to one of our local home improvement stores.  So, until then!!

Blog’s first words!

The title pretty much says it all.  These are the first words for my first blog!  Yea!!  I am very excited to start this journey, and even more excited to share it with all of you.  As this blog takes it’s proverbial first steps, I just have to say, stick around, it’s sure to be fun!
