Spring is here…my backyard needs a makeover!

My back porch and yard are quite hideous right now. 

I’ve had ideas brewing on how to fix this since December…yes when I can’t do anything about it because it’s too cold.  ha!

The one idea I’ve been so anxious about is my making my recyling bins look a little nicer.  I wish I’d taken a before pic, but if I had I probably wouldn’t post it because they were so awful. seriously.

I like them now. :)

 

I had my son help spray paint them (not the color I expected, but it was ok)  and then I cut out a stencil with my Cricut and used that to create the “recycle” on the bins.  The font is Desigers.  One of my faves!  (Photoshop Action is DPM on the Drama)

 I’m a little sad that I don’t have any “friends” yet.  :/

We took a quick trip to see the Easter Bunny today at Walgreens.  He was to be there at noon.

He wasn’t there.  The guy at the counter said the suit was ruined at another Walgreens the day before so they had to postpone.  Mygirls were devistated.  :(   So we drove them to the mall to see the Easter Bunny….they questioned us about why we thought he was at the mall when he couldn’t make it to Walgreens.  UGH! 

After the  Easter Bunny trip, the girls played in the backyard for a while and I had to take a picture of Lauren feet in her new flippies. They were too cute, and reminded me of summer.  Summer that I sooo long for.  Oh, I cannot wait for the warm summer days.

Can‘t Wait!
