The weather has been so amazing this weekend! On Saturday I was able to sit outside and study on our back porch for a few hours--unheard of in July! Usually I'd have to been in a pool to make it outside mid-day in July! Being on the porch reminded me, I wanted to post about my furniture. Nana gave me this white wicker furniture this spring when she upgraded. It needed a new coat of paint and some new cushions. Here is the before:
And the after! I used espresso paint (about 12 cans!) and got the cushions at Garden Ridge. I have really enjoyed them!
Here are some pics of the flowers on the porch. With this cooler weather they have really been blooming!
And my prized (haha) tomatoes! I have three growing in my topsy turvy planter!!!
I just put some Miracle Grow on them tonight so hopefully they'll grow!!!
So, that's the tour of our back porch! On another earthly note...on Saturday I was innocently pulling weeds in the front flower bed, when I suddenly noticed a worm. Or what I HOPED was a worm. Then I noticed the triangular head and how the worm coiled up--a SNAKE! In the flowerbed! I quickly yelled for Jordan, who, well, terminated the snake. At that point I was thinking, it's ok, it was one (admittedly small) snake. I can keep going. Keep on pulling those weeds. Within 2 minutes I look down and see ANOTHER (also small, but still creepy and slithery) SNAKE! AHHHHH! So I quit. Went inside. No more weed pulling for me! Don't worry, today we went to Home Depot and got some "Snake-Away". I will not put up with these intruders! I know some snakes are good and all, but I'm totally freaked out! I hope they go away soon!
One week from today I take the big test! I am so ready for it to be over!
