Saturday kicked off with a terrifying encounter with a bat that I found while spraying down my porch. I honestly had a near full-blown panic attack as a little wing with claws came creeping out of a wood crack. Slowly the wing reached out followed by a little beady head with two black eyes staring right at me. I SCREAMED for my husband who came rushing to my screams to watch it (thankfully) fly away. Two words… very traumatic!
The best part of Saturday was the pool party that my sister threw for a bunch of girlfriends at her apartment. We had margaritas, snacks, hilarious conversations and some serious girl-time with the 6 most important women in my life. Oh, my mom also stopped by for a bit and played honorary Grandma to Lindy’s bundle of joy Rory which was enjoyed by all. I think everyone had a wonderful time and I hope we will be doing this a bunch more this summer.
Sunday was another day spent in the backyard for our major backyard renovation that I mentioned here. We made a trip to the Home Depot for tons of items and were able to complete a brick boarder for our patio, plant both a bougainvillea and a clematis in two bright yellow/gold pots, mosaic some flag stone under our big tree and finally add some ground cover that will eventually grow to wrap around all the stones. We got some major help from Ryan’s dad Jon, my sister and Beth even came over to enjoy all the changes. I could not be luckier to have so much support on this project and to see what a difference some hard work has already made.
