Weekend Recap {Backyard DIY}

cheesin' it after breakfast on Saturday

Happy Monday everyone! I was actually in such a good mood this morning but it's probably because I had a long weekend. I was home from work on Thursday and Friday because I had some doctor's appointments. Even though I had to lay low those days, I was still able to sleep in :) Win in my book!

We spent a good chunk of the weekend working on the backyard. When I say we, I mean mostly Mark and our friend Greg. I did help with the plants but that's about it haha. My hubby is super handy and I was even more impressed than normal when he whipped up these planters. We got the wood on Friday afternoon and him and Greg put them together in no time. They look awesome! Our pups thought they were pretty awesome as well lol.

 He also made this bench, and this little table to camouflage the propane tank for the fire pit. I can't wait until it gets cool enough to use.

On Sunday, we brought our friends Spencer and Rob some dinner and were able to see their new little one, Charlie. He's so precious!

Afterwards, we went on a date night to the Brigantine. It was nice to relax and let someone else make a meal for us :) It was a great weekend and I'm really looking forward to next weekend when my Grammie comes to visit. Should be fun! Have a great day everyone.


  1. Dinner looks fancy and yum! The planters are awesome - I'm thinking of asking for a raised garden bed next year :)

  2. The dinner looks great and congrats to your friends. And thank you for sharing your life with us! I love following you guys around. Such an interesting life
