I'm back!

Hey Guys!
I'm so sorry i haven't updated!! I've had a few days (week) off...and now i feel even more ready to post!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I spent it with my Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law. It was my sister in law's first Mother's Day, so we wanted to make her feel extra special. We arrived extra early, to give her a few hours off...and we stole the little one for a few hours. I can only imagine how that must feel...to get a break! She's been suffering with allergies, so even us just sitting on the couch with the little man was enough for her to take a shower and get dressed...and even put on makeup!  We waited for her hubby to get home and we went out for Italian!  It was a really nice evening. My mother is a Jehovahs Witness, so she doesn't celebrate any holidays...so don't worry, she wasn't jealous/left out.

Anywho, The weather in NY is starting to get really nice! A few weeks ago, Hubby and I raked up (mostly on his hands and knees) ALL of the grass and replanted the grass from seed. I can't even believe, only a few short days later, our grass is back...and it's better than ever.  The front yard is looking really nice and green...we've even got compliments from some neighbors! Hubby swears that "He's THE MAN"...because we were able to get such green grass, in less than 2 weeks...and only spent a total of $78.  We used a combination of grass seed, peat moss, and fertilizer. We also removed some of the shrubs that were in the front...and cleaned up all the flower beds.

This also means, we had to walk Bailey & Sebastian...which is actually really nice. The dogs are getting the hang of walking on a leash, and Bailey loves meeting new people(neighbors) on our walks.  We also were able to put a gate up for the dog run...so they have a place to sit/hang out when we're outside. I can't even begin to tell you how nice it is to open a window...and have fresh air come through the house.

We still have a few projects we want to do on the outside, which include: painting the front door, replacing the screen door, power washing the house/windows, and repainting the fence...but one thing at a time.
This weekend i'm going to Buffalo to see my friend graduate from college. I'm going to miss hubby and the pups.

How did you spend your Mother's Day!? And what are the plans for the weekend!?


  1. Ooh the weather in NY sounds so inviting!! It's already peaking in the 90s down here in Texas. And our grass? Nonexistent. Hitting close to 100+ days with no rain really takes a toll on the grass' ability to stay alive, much less stay green. Story of our lives, for us Texans ;)

    Glad to have you back!


  2. Welcome back! Sounds like you had a productive weekend!

  3. The weather is great here Alisha!! I don't really like extreme weather (too cold/hot)...so this is perfect. lol, so far the grass is GREEN! ;)

    Molly, thank you. :)
