so i haven't posted anything on here in over a month. it's not because we haven't done anything or that we've been so busy we didn't have time to write, it's just that nothing seemed interesting enough to make it on the blog. i feel like this blog has become all about what we're doing around the house, and i enjoy that because it's our big project for right now. however i'm not sure how much ya'll enjoy reading about the house.
as far as the house goes, we are having the much awaited concrete done this week. i'm so ready for the yard to be "company ready". we have big plans for the summer BBQ's and such. my husband has spent the better part of every weekend in his yard. he loves to mow his lawn, plant more in the flowerbeds, decorate with bark and rocks. our yard really looks good. i'm proud of my hubby for the amount of time, energy, sweat, and blood that has gone into our yard and house.
we had a busy last week. while the town was on spring break ryan and i still had to work. ryan, however, had training tues thru thurs here in fresno from 830am-430pm so he didn't have to leave each morning until 8am and he was home before i was. since he didn't have to commute and he was working less hours we were able to have a bit of a midweek social life so we felt like we had a bit of a spring break as well.

there's our busy week in a nut shell. this week should be a nice relaxing alternative. i'll post new pics of the yard soon. everything is in bloom! concrete pics will come this week too. i'm heading to women's retreat this weekend with the church, so ry will be playing the bachelor. maybe check in on him if you think about it! :) be sure he's at home and the house is still standing. :)
