Front Yard Makeover

Our front yard was in desperate need of makeover.
Last month, with my parents help, we added sod & some more mexican heather to our front yard.

Originally, we wanted to make an edible front yard after reading a book called Edible Estates, but there have been several neighbors who have had their plants/flowers stolen so we quickly gave up on that plan. So for now we decided to go with a low-maintenance front yard.


This was before. I've got to admit it was an embarrassing sight.




This is after. Much better.



Pretty good, huh?
Who knew? You add sod and you can have a decent-looking yard. :-)

30 is here & I love it!!!

I had a fabulous 30th birthday!
Thank you to my wonderful husband, parents, family & friends.

I was born 30 years ago today at 9:36 p.m. CST. :-)


Me & My Hunny

The delicious apple meringue pie that my awesome hubster made.
It's French and has a custard inside too. Mmm Mmm.



I chose Lobster Rolls for my birthday dinner.
He picked these 2 sizes because he said they represented us. :D
He's so funny!

Me & My Precious "kids"

Me & My Wonderful Parents!


The perfect lobster rolls with homemade buns and a delicious homemade mayo, celery, green onion sauce.

It was the perfect birthday meal!

I think 30 looks pretty darn good on me! ;-)
My 20's were great, but I think my 30's are going to be freakin' awesome.

The way Baby Dan sleeps

Now that I've blogged about the way my baby girl sleeps I just have to blog about my baby boy. Now this boy is the king of napping. :)
Oh this boy of mine makes me laugh.


He just loves getting in between the two of us.
It's the perfect snug spot for Bubba.

He sleeps sitting up (in between his mom & pops of course).

He finds the oddest positions to get into.

He loves, loves, loves his quilts.

He sleeps on my tummy. :)

He sleeps in my arms. :)

He peeks out from his quilt.

He loves sleeping on his back too.

Check him out!
Just all laid out. :)

And a close up...
(can you see his tongue?)

I love my little man!
