busy busy busy

This weekend was cuh-razy busy.

Saturday morning we got up and went to the farmers market, they didn't have too much as it's pretty early in the season but we did snag some goodies.
Asparagus, green onions and some yummy spinach & feta whole wheat bread.

After that we headed home and surprise the girls because K's Mom and Dad came down for a visit.
They wanted to see Miss Adison play at her soccer game.
Guess what happened?!?!
She scored a goal!
She was so excited and we, her massive cheering section, were so happy for her.
My dad, brother, sister-in-law, niece, K's mom and dad as well as the five of us were there.
Talk about fun!

Lee and her two besties, Kailyn and Cameron.
After that we went out to lunch, came back to our house and chilled, then it was off to church.
I love church.
Love love love it.

K took this picture of these beautiful, viney flowers.
I have no idea what they are called, but I do know that they grow on a vine and are very pretty.

 This morning, we went out to Lowe's to tackle some projects.
K is working on our front porch, specifically the hand-rails.
Me, well, I didn't really need anything from Lowe's but love to go there.

My obsession current project is eradicating the vines from our backyard.
They were starting to take over and I just couldn't handle it anymore.
Plus, we have been extremely a little lax about doing yard work and there were some major things that needed to get done. 

I lifted up a rock in the backyard on Sunday and found this GIGANTIC earthworm.
It was seriously disgusting and was as large as my pinky.
I screamed then ran to get K and the kiddos so they could take a look as well.

Last but not least, I found this antique fireplace tool holder thing under our front porch.
Yes, under the front porch.
I pulled it out and decided that it would be fun to paint and put it outside as a decoration in one of the flower beds.
I painted it today and can't wait to show you how good it looks!

How was your weekend?


  1. So proud of Adison for scoring a goal. Good Job! And that is so awesome that you found that under your porch. I love FREE, awesome finds! Can't wait to see what it looks like when you finish it.

  2. The purple viney flower is called Clematis ( I have it in my front yard and it comes back beautifully every year no matter how badly I treat it!
