As it turns out, I don't mind yardwork TOO much. Thankfully the people who lived here before me took alot of time on the landscaping in front of the house so really all I have to do is maintain it. I put down 6 bags of mulch over the weekend, plus did alot of weed-pulling, trimming and I mowed the yard. And of course, splurged on a few cute items including the little metal sunflowers in the foreground of the picture and the bright red mums up by the door!

I LOVE mums.

I also put some bigger mums in the flower "beds" built in beside my mailbox. For these, I chose the white ones with the yellow centers that kind-of look like daisies (my favorite of all flowers). They haven't completely bloomed yet- so that is something to look forward to!

Did I need this little angel? Probably not. But she was only $5 at Michaels!!! :-)

After a weekend spent outside (I am seriously sunburned, too, btw)... now I have to spend a couple days hitting the books hard before my parents arrive later this week for a visit!!! Woo hoo!!!! I am so excited!
