It is done!

Our patio is kinda finished! Yes! The flagstone is finished, grouted, cleaned and sealed. The ceiling is done, along with new trim. The fire-pit is pretty much done (just needs to be cleaned) and we had our inauguration fire last night. The new patio set has been cleaned, painted and two chairs have been re-upholstered. The hanging flower baskets are out and look great!

There is still some more to do: finish removing all the dirt from the digging we did, lay sod, built the post, finish the stairs, lay some sort of base... but it is usable right now. And do we use it! We have eaten dinner out there, breakfast, morning coffee, desserts at night, and now we can have fires.

I am still bitter at how much time and work went into building everything, so, if you don't mind, I will just post the finished pictures. Bar-b-Que anyone?

My Garden

I really should be getting my kids ready for school (they are still sleeping and we need to leave in 20 minutes) but I was checking out this blog, Elle Apparel, and she posted a give away.

I LOVE her blog. She is super creative and takes marvelous photos and I really want to win this skirt that she makes. So, in order to get entered twice, I need to link her blog on my site.


Keeping my fingers crossed...
