Lazy Days of Summer

I think this picture says it all... We had a wonderful lazy weekend!

I just love it when that happens. We actually had an engagement party and wedding reception to go to on Saturday night, but other than that... we did very little! I was excited that I got to work in my flowerbeds and put together some potted plants on my deck. Eugene got to go fishing, and Sam got lots of lovin' all weekend!

Look how great my potted flowers turned out! I just love Zinnias... they are so pretty.

We have this area in our flower bed that is constantly shaded. I have been debating on what to plant there for a while, so I went to Lowe's on Saturday to hunt. All of their flowers were on sale! I got some Impatients just for some color. Then, I got a great sale price on a hydrangea bush. Hydrangeas are my MOST FAVORITE flower, and we already have 3 great bushes on the side of the house. So, why not have an extra. Once it grows it will be beautiful and eventually big enough that I will not have to plant annuals around it for color. Grow baby grow!

We spent Sunday mostly lying around watching TV. I watched a marathon of The Real Estate Pros... I love that show! Eugene and Sam spent some great time snuggling on the couch. How sweet!

I hope your weekend was just as great!
