Weekend of Water and Updates

This weekend marked 11 years of wedded bliss with my hubby. We are a pretty low key couple, we spent our anniversary with our kiddo doing our usual Saturday family stuff. We did finally get to hanging this beautiful stained glass piece in our bathroom window. Drew bought it for me last year for our anniversary…

I love it! It’s so bright and cheerful..

We also worked out in the yard to get our above ground pool cleaned and ready for the summer. The last few months we have been saving up for an inflatable hot tub. After some research we decided on the Coleman lazy spa. The set up was super easy! We are excited to use it after hard days at work…

Getting the hot tub and pool going made us want to make a nice area to use this summer. We don’t think that the spot will be permanent, so we used some pavers we already had to make a temporary patio space. Since we used stuff we had on hand, it was free! It will be a great space this summer. I may add some potted flowers and plants to add some color too.
