Here's a before and after of the back landscaping area:
Once we figure out where we can buy sod, we'll sod the area, to the right, in
This is one side of the house we worked on Saturday. I failed at a before picture, but you can kind of see how big the bushes were in the before picture above.
While Stephen was hard at work on Friday, I ran to Old Navy during my lunch break to pick up this cardigan. It was a daily deal and was on sale for $12. It's lightweight which is perfect for Florida or leaving it in the office, which I will probably do.
For dinner on Friday, we drove over to meet to meet Stephen's family for dinner at the Willow Tree, which is a super authentic German restaurant. We had a great time celebrating his mom's birthday with some great food. Total blogger fail - I didn't get any pictures of the restaurant.
Saturday, we woke up early and I began our big house deep clean while Stephen ran over to help a friend with his boat. After he got home, he went right to work pulling out the bushes on the side of the house. After finishing my cleaning for the day, I joined him - surprisingly, we had fun ripping out all the plants which is good since we still have a lot more to go ;)
After all our yard work, Stephen was a trooper an ran with me to the mall. I wanted to take advantage of the Columbus day sales but I ended up not finding anything. We did find some delicious pumpkin things from Target and picked up a welcome mat, for the back patio, that was on sale for $4!
Saturday night, we finally watched the real-life Cinderella and it was really good - even Stephen enjoyed it! Definitely a lot sadder than the animated version but still a great movie! Now I can't wait for the real-life Beauty and the Beast.
After church on Sunday, we went to lunch with some friends and then I got right back to cleaning the house while Stephen worked on the lawn. It was non-stop but it feels SO good to have a clean house! For dinner, I made Christina's Chicken Enchilada Soup and it turned out delicious!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!! Cheers to a great week :)
