Garage Wall: What should I do?

We have a pretty neat garage. Its really big. It has a cool, old door and window. And it has a cinder block wall on one side.

I don't know what to do. But here is my main idea:

Yes, my solution to most problems: Paint it.

I love painting. I think it will look nice, and it will seal the wall. Any thoughts? Color ideas? I am thinking white or an off-white. Or should I do something entirely different? And not even paint it? TOO MANY QUESTIONS!

Yay flowers!

So today I began the long awaited journey of planting one of our flower beds. I guess a week isn't THAT long awaited, but it is a little. :) We bought the first set of flowers from Fred Meyer, and I will continue to add until I think it looks complete!

Pink and White Geraniums. LOVE them!

Blue something or other. My mom picked them out.

And the lovely flowerbed.

Okay its hideous.

But I promise it gets better.

After cutting back the whatever they were, getting rid of the GIANT ugly hose, and raking the dirt around, it looks MUCH better.

PS- This flowerbed is also home to the MOST potato bugs I have ever seen in one place in my life.

No joke.

So after that, I set up the flowers how I thought I wanted them. I changed it a couple times, but came up with this set up. I really like it.

It does need more flowers though.

But like I said, I will be adding all the time until it looks right. :)

And voila! Sorry for the terrible photo quality. My camera doesn't connect properly with Apple. She's finicky.

Yes I named my Mac Apple. But not after the computer company, after Chris Martin and Gwyenth Paltrow's daughter. Yeah, yeah.

So there you have it, the beginning of my garden!


Today I am planting a nice little garden in our backyard.

After I get my hair done.

And buy the flowers.

Then I will have a cute little garden party in the backyard with lemonade and cinnamon toast. I am addicted, what can I say.

Pictures to follow.

New house.

And welcome to my new house! Sweet little door in the front door, huh?
I love the old school mailbox. No more ugly metal lock box.
And the kitchen. Don't mind the stuff on the counter, we were JUST moving in.
Again, a table-less kitchen.
Lastly, my lovely, giant window in my room. I love it.

I will definitely post more pictures once we are completely moved in. But this will just have to do for now.


This is why I love my job.

Brody. Bro. Brojo. Brosicle. Bubba. Piglet.

I spend 8 hours a day with this kid. He is hilarious. And he has style.

And he naps for 2-3 hours. He's a growing boy for sure.
