Yard Work

Last weekend Matt and I worked on the front yard. It looks amazing if I do say so myself. Matt and a few neighbors rented a machines to air-raid the grass. After that we picked up a lot of leaves and old mulch. Matt cut a new bed line. Then we put in new mulch. I love the new lines. Who would have known that would make such a difference. I counted 5 lowes trips in all. Crazy huh? We also got lantana for my bucket in the back. I think I have a plan for parts of the backyard. I am dying to get a redbud for the backyard. So, I'm going to put it on the street side in the corner with monkey grass and flowers. Then between the sidewalk and house I want to plant some green plants and pink flowers.

Ooo, I also got a new bike this weekend that is awesome. I call it my low rider. (It is one of those comfort ones...I swear it is cute). I hate how mountian bikes feel so I thought I'd try this out.

Matt and I are planning a camping trip to the four corners (Mesa Verde) this summer. I can't wait. We are also going to visit his family. Matt's cousins had babies so we finally get to meet them. It is going to be awesome. I can't wait to get out in nature. I wanted to camp in the backyard this weekend but it looks like it is going to rain. So I'm thinking about pulling out my paint brushes again. Maybe try a new crockpot recipe for ckn n dumplins.

We did get our tickets for the Rough Riders this weekend. I'm so excited. It is probably one of my favorite things to do. It's just so relaxing and fun.
