Saturday...what we we've been up to...

This morning started early with a run to Bellingham with my sis-in-law and Mr. Weston. We did a quick return to WalMart and then headed over to Target for a quick run through there. The next stop, was the fun stop...Lowe's Garden Shop! We were in plant heaven. We were both able to find what we needed for the spots in our yards that were needing a little help. We had plants in the back of the jeep and plants up next to Weston. It was a great time!

We left Bellingham and headed for the crazy town of Lynden. I say crazy because everyone is out and about in this town. There are so many things going on here...garage sales (lots and lots of them), Dave's Sporting Goods is having a Gun Show event, and then there are those who were out doing what we were doing...plant shopping. We stopped at VanderGiessen's Nursery to get the final pieces of what we were needing and then headed over to True Value and Ace Hardware to scope out what they had. Ace was actually filling people's planters for them.

When I returned home, I found that Jason had put together the new barbecue. I got to making a grocery list because of course we will be using the new bbq tonight! Alyssa and I headed back out to get the propane tank filled (we would never want that to run out in the midst of grilling) and then off to Safeway for some groceries. We had become Mother Hubbard around here so it was a much needed trip. We got some very fun things for dinner tonight and we are very excited about the possibility of eating outside. (Please sun...stay out!) I realize that it is not the warmest day out but we can all put on a sweatshirt and enjoy the outdoors!

I have so many plants to get planted but I'm trying to get the inside of the house under control right now. Jason has gotten quite a bit accomplished outside but knows to leave the flower beds to me. I know just where I want things and I enjoy doing it. I'm hoping for some nice weather this next week so that I can get everything accomplished. We have only this next week to get the things on our list accomplished to meet our goal for the For Sale sign to in the yard. (More on that later.)

I better get back to getting things done around here. I have the steaks marinating and need to get veggies ready next. I have a few loads of laundry that are calling my name too...laundry, does it ever end? Hope you are all having a fabulous Saturday!

What time is dinner? I am soo there! Thanks again for the plant run, and the help with Weston. I couldn't have been so productive without you! And come one, there were a few nooks and crannies left to fill with more plants in the Jeep! :-) And of course, there always was your lap!

I'm wanting to buy plants like crazy too - but I'm trying to stay self-controlled! I spent $100 on boxwoods and flowers for the window boxes and some bacopa by the garage - YIEKS!!!
