Friday Favorites

I have been an awful blogger lately.  I will get back into a groove this summer, I promise!  But until then I thought I'd share some of my Friday favorites.  I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci once again.

1.   I am loving my yard lately.  We've been spending a lot of evenings outside working on it, and it's really coming along.  I am so glad that we had the deck redone.  It's very simple and just the way I wanted it. 
I am not a gardener and I definitely don't have a green thumb.  Once upon a time I tried a HUGE beautiful garden and failed at it miserably.  We had the whole thing ripped up and hauled off.  It just became an eye soar and I felt guilty every time I looked out there.  I wanted to be a good gardener, but I didn't enjoy it at the time.  My kids were little and I felt busy.  Too busy for one more thing.  So the garden left.

Today my kids are a bit older and I missed having plants.  Yes, I'm crazy!  Haha!  So the other day I ran down to the nursery and bought a few plants for around the house.  Dan and I have been ripping up some of the sod around the sides of the house and I've been planting different perenials making myself little flower gardens.  I've even bought a couple of vegetable plants and the thing is, I am having so much more fun now and loving it!  

My little pot of basil.

2.   Monday was the beginning of the Proverbs study over at Good Morning Girls.  It's a Mon-Fri study and it's not to late to jump on in.  You have the whole weekend to catch up.  Courtney has a great little video you should check out.  She will totally convince you to jump in and start reading Proverbs.  Go check it out! 
Today we begin Proverbs 1-5

3.   I am loving all the fresh produce that is rolling in.  One of the many reasons that this is my favorite time of year. 

4.   We went out to dinner the other night for our anniversary and took a little ride in my sisters jeep.  There isn't a better vehicle to ride in during the summer, even if you end up with crazy hair. 

5.   And to celebrate Friday... here's a little humor for you all.  :)

I hope you all have a great weekend!
