Annulment day!

A beautiful thing about the railroad is that, if for some reason they don't have enough rested people to work a job, your job gets annulled (cancelled) for the day and you still get paid for it! It doesn't happen often, I think this is the first time it has ever happened to Cody, but we jumped on the "free day" off and got a Spring time project done that I've had my eye on for a while.

The rock garden area in front of our house has bugged me since we moved in. The plants were over grown and chaotic, they gave me anxiety. So I took the weed whacker to some and had Cody rip out the rest.

Overgrown Mess:


Once the anxiety inducing mess was gone I had no clue what to put there. I thought maybe an array of pots filled with bright flowers, easy to maintain and switch out every year but I just couldn't decide on pots. So it sat empty last Summer. 

Questionable Empty Rock Garden:


Enter pinterest. Where the ideas flow like fine wine. 

Here is the magic we *cough cough* Cody completed. I was hoping for a clean, neat look. I love our baby bushes, and hope that by the time we are looking to put the house on the market they will have filled in nicely. 





I highly recommend scheduling all labor intensive projects for when you're too pregnant to bend over. Thanks for all your hard work babe!
