house on the hill/i was not kiddin'!


So if you were wondering why "house on the hill"....?
told ya so! it feels like you are taking off in a rocket ship just going into the garage! Lord help us when we sell this place!
With Spring upon us, we were all out in the yard all day yesterday trying to get things to look half way decent. We have a yard full of weeds so that is going to be something we tackle hopefully this year - I am not so sure how we will do it considering the yard ( front/back ) is full of rock. We did manage to tend to the flower bed in the front yard and planted some new annuals as well as got rid of the weeds quickly sneaking up on our perennials planted last year!. I got a new rug for my front door for my birthday from Target... LOVE the red and love that it goes so well with my door. I also made a spring wreath that seems to be "all the hype" on facebook right now lol - fabric flowers have been a big hit and I cannot even begin to tell you how simple they are to make!!!! My friend Lynsey and I sat down today and whipped up 3 wreaths for her home ( jealous of all her doors ).
All of these images were taken with my phone, which btw takes some awesome pics!









and of course the whole inspiration for getting out and tending to my own yard... The Tafoya's backyard - K just loves playing over there. The grass is so green and soft and Lynsey has done an awesome job with her own garden... not to mention they have some awesome pets ( not that i would ever hold one )



  * had to throw Flat Stanley in there!*


the girls had so much fun on their mini "hay ride"



are these not the cutest?! Lynsey found these and repainted them ♥
