The Farmer and the Dell

I want to thank all of you for your amazing comments on my Friday post. They really helped, a lot. Sorry for being so down! I need to realize that this whole process is going to take some time and I need to "man up" and not allow myself to get so upset over one weigh in. There are certainly bigger problems out there than this one :)

Onto the weekend! Aaron and I did a little gardening. Yes, you read that right: Aaron and I. I love being outside helping with the yard. I would much rather do that then clean inside! Growing up, my parents would do yard work/garden/plant every single weekend. Or so it seemed. As I got older I started helping out and really enjoyed it. Even pulling weeds...I know, crazy! So I was kind of pumped when Aaron said he wanted my help this weekend. We woke up Saturday and ate a good breakfast to get energized for our activities! After a quick stop at Home Depot, we were ready to go! There is a mulching bed (garden??) in our backyard and lately our grass has been growing into the bed. Not to mention the weeds that popped up. It was not a pretty sight. I really wish I would have taken a before/after pic because it looks SO much better now. After spending all day outside, we were exhausted. We spent the rest of the evening in. Rented a movie and had some popcorn. It was amazing!


I have to brag on my amazing husband for a second.
He read my blog post on Friday and knew how
upset I was and he came home with these beautiful flowers!
I was so surprised. That man knows how to make me happy :)


our power breakfast...yes it's chocolate and yes there
are biscuits underneath. It came from the one and only,
Paula Deen! It was just OK. I used wheat biscuits and skim milk.
Tried to be somewhat healthy! I'm sure hers is much better


Proof that I was out working too :)
Pay no mind to the dirty butt - whoops! I spent
a good hour de-weeding that stupid area!



My little girl! She thought she was helping
but she was really making a mess! She loves
running through the new mulch!


Daisy's new love - her tennis ball.
She would not put that thing down all day!!


My new love - I think I'm in love with our new pot!!
It adds so much color to our back porch
the only "good" after pic I have and it has D's behind in it!:(
Either way, it looks so much better!



I started this little game with Daisy and Aaron wanted to try it too.
I'm sure he'll be happy that I posted it! I was waiting for her to
bite his nose or something - ha! She loves popcorn!!



Yeah, we drink wine with popcorn.
Is that a problem?

Yesterday we got up and went to church. We had one of the best sermons! The group Avalon was back and they are just amazing. The music had me crying like a baby. I needed it. Aaron and I went to lunch after church and then to Best Buy and we bought a new t.v. for our bedroom!! We had one when we first moved in, but when we put together our workout room I moved the t.v. in there. I needed something to keep me entertained while on the elliptical! So we bought a cute flat screen for our room. One day, while watching Oprah she said to never put a t.v. in your bedroom because all the romance goes out the window, or something like that. I then told my mom that I would never put one in my room. I mean, Oprah said so, right? Wrong! We broke down. I love it! Never going back :)

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks again for all of your support on Friday. You all are the best :)

Love wine and popcorn! The only food my puppy gets is popcorn and she eats it the same way. It might have started on a night where a little bit of wine was involved!

It looks like you had a fabulous weekend!

I think the TV could lead to more romance--all that snuggling!

Your hubs is too sweet for giving you flowers! He's a good one :)

Your yard looks fantastic! And your puppy is too cute :)

I saw that same thing on Oprah before...but I don't know how people live without a tv in the bedroom :) Maybe better than me...but I like it!
