so i’m switching it up a bit and changing my monthly updates to “curently” posts and linking up with Becky over at ChooseHappy!
Currently, we are….
Planting… my father-in-law started our front yard renovations yesterday!!! yay!!! I came home to a mowed lawn, and the beginnings of the cutest flower bed!! Ilove.love.LOVE plants and gardening… I just happen to have about the blackestthumb possible, ha! I also started our own little herb garden about a month ago… I got the cutest little window box at Ross (love that store) and seeds for parsley, basil,
and thyme. I’ve about given up on the seedlings though… I’m probably going to transplant them, and get ready to go herbs for my window box… plus my preferred herbs would more likely be basil, rosemary, and thyme… parsley is ok, but really those are my go to’s!
Adding… we added to our family this past week, with the addition of Harper’s first VERY OWN pet. The cutest little beta fish, which she lovingly named skittles. She loves feeding and checking on skittles many times a day! She loves her “fisss” ♥
Making… I made the CUTEST little chalkboard for above my coffee station this weekend!! I was so excited. I had been wanting to do it forever, and had the stuff for it forever. I finally took the whole 5 minutes to put it all together. DIY tip… go get chalkboard place mats at Hobby Lobby and find frames you like … cut place mat to fit frame and remove glass. bam! cute chalkboard for cheap!
Buying…. did I mention I’m obsessed with plants right now?! haha. My new favorites are our windowsill lavender & the hibiscus on our table (thank you TJ’s!!)!
Thankful…we just finished our May family vacation to Arkansas and Missouri to visit my side of the family. My niece, Amber and her new husband Chris, were married on the 23rd. So we took the opportunity to stay with my sister for a few days and then with my parents for a few days. We were gone a little over a week… and off work for almost two weeks. It was magnificent ;) The wedding was gorgeous and the family time was good for the soul. Couldn’t ask for more!!!
