My puppy can prep you for a pedi

My husband would like for me to add that, although his foot was used in the picture, he does not get "pedis". :)

I wouldn't call it a Spring "Break"

Normally I would look forward to spring break as a time to get out of town and visit friends or go somewhere new. Although we did get to do some of that, Ryan and I decided to make this week a "getter done" kind of week.


1. Finish our picture collage in the entryway.
2. Begin to redo the office, starting with new furniture.
3. Freshen up the front yard.
4. Watch as much basketball as possible.
5. Check our brackets as often as possible.
6. Somehow begin to repair our doggie destroyed backyard.

Here's what it looked like along the way...

More planting

And the biggie- my friend, Allison Bradley's, boss was re-landscaping his yard and needed to get rid of some grass sod that he had, so we transplanted it from his yard to ours. My car is a disaster, but it was well worth it.

And some of the finished products....

Let's Go Fly A Kite

Ryan and I had a great Sunday afternoon outside yesterday at the Kite Festival at Zilker Park. The weather was GORGEOUS!

Bella had lots of fun too but did decide at one point that she needed a little break from playing with all of the kids that were petting her.

Yay for all of the free Austin outdoor events that happen year round. We love it here!
