Weekend In Review

8:54 AM

Certainly not the most glamorous of weekends, but it was chock full of feelings of accomplishment and sweet moments. After a week of SXSW festivities, John and I couldn't muster the desire to head back downtown on Saturday. Instead, we slept in, made banana pancakes and ran a few errands (one of which was replacing my camera's lens cap that I lost). After a quick detour to the paper store that resulted with this cheap DIY art project and thrift shop where I snapped up a colorful watercolor painting that now lives in our hallway, we headed to Lowe's to pick up some plants for our garden. John drew up the most fantastic landscaping plan last week (a perk of being married to a very talented architect), and we got to work raking, weeding, tearing up the grass and pruning the trees. It looks like we barely put a dent in it, but progress is progress - and even though it's a bit messy right now, it already looks SO much better. The rest of the weekend was pretty much "wash, rinse, repeat" on the landscaping front. I think our backs are officially broken, but it'll be worth it once we have a lush backyard to enjoy picnics and cocktails in. Hopefully we'll finish before the temps hit 110 degrees. ;)
