I was reminded today that I have been a bit absent in the posts over the past couple of days and I have to admit… I have been. However, it is for good reason and I have a couple post coming together that will further prove this point. Until then, here is a quick update on what has kept me away from my computer but full of smiles, laughter, sore muscles and complete happiness…
My sister turned 30… I mentioned it here. We had quite the celebration and I cannot wait to share more of the details.

I spent some serious time with this guy…. my little Rocco. He was acting a bit scared when I took this picture before bed one night but oh how cute is he?!?!

We had 9 tons of rock delivered on Friday to start filling in our planter beds. When I told my mom 9 tons on the phone she said ‘Nine, is that what I heard?!’ and my sassy response was, ‘Yes mom, as in the number after 8 and before 10’. (I am such a snot sometimes!)
(Clockwise from top left: the 1st plant in the ground / hooray for backyard greenery / Ryan working hard / weed barrier in, waiting on rock / we had to rent a truck to bring everything home / working hard)
Six laborious hours on Saturday, 1 1/2 hours Sunday and an hour last night hauling rock and I can proudly say we are done laying weed barrier, planting 15 new shrubs and laying the majority of the rock.
Hope everyone had a good weekend and I cannot wait to share all the fun from my sister’s birthday and another update on our backyard later this week!
