Our Thumbs are Green...

Dave and I planted a garden this time will tell how Green our Thumbs really are?? We enjoyed getting to plant our 1st garden at our new home!! We planted the garden next to the shed...that yes...could fall down at any moment?!? It will eventually be torn worries!

So far we have planted:

-tomato plant
-brussel sprouts
-red pepper

We will probably plant broccoli, cabbage, and carrots as well, but home depot and lowes had slim pickins. We will keep you posted on how Green our Thumbs are???

Turning the soil

Making the rows

A TREASURE we found in the garden??

Rows ready for plants

Gardening is soo much fun!! Giving the plants a good watering

Yea...we shall see how well is grows?

I also bought 3 cute little succulents from Lowes. I put them together in a vintage pot I found the other day while shopping with Aimee and Brandie!

I love it!

This weekend we also finished tearing the old ceiling tiles off in the guest bedroom! And we cleaned up our mess and this is what the room looks like as of now! All we really need to do in the guest room is sheetrock, tape, float, and paint. Not that this means it will be done soon, because that will take us a while!!

Drum Roll Please...........Bathroom COMPLETE!!!!!!

Wow…its hard to believe, but the bathroom is COMPLETE!! I told David it looks so good, I want to sleep there! It is our diamond in the rough right now! I have to say, if it weren’t for ALL of David’s hard work the bathroom would still look like it did when we moved in. I have honestly been soo impressed with what all he has accomplished. I knew he was a good plumber, but I didn’t know that he was an Awesome framer, tiler, sheet rocker, taper, floater, and painter (I am not too surprised though…he is one handy man)! I can’t wait to take my first shower in the finished bathroom! Here are picts of the before, during and after...

Here are some more pictures of the finished product...
