6 yrs of Wedded Bliss!!!!!

Our actual anniversary was on May 25th, but things have been a little hectic lately, so we celebrated last night. My mom watched the kids and we went out for a wonderful dinner at Olive Garden. Speaking of..I have a little funny story...It has probably been at least 3 yrs since I have been to an Olive Garden b/c the closest one was in Little Rock and now we have one in Hot Springs. Well, I already knew what I wanted so I was looking at the menu for it....all I saw was like 6 items to choose from and Clint and I just looked at eachother a little puzzled!! LOL The other menu they handed us looked like it was only for specialty drinks, wine, etc.. I said "I know it has been a while, but surely they haven't downsized to 6 whole items to choose from" LOL I ask the waitress about the Chicken Parmesan I was sooooo craving and she points right to it.....turns out the "drink menu" was only part of it and the rest was food. I told Clint she probably thought we were backwoods people who had never been out to eat before!! LOL made for a great laugh and as usual, it was so nice to just talk to my husband without any interruptions and just enjoy being "us"!! Happy Anniversary Clint....I look forward to many more years together!!

Landscaper's Challenge....Before and After

After years of neglect, my poor yard FINALLY got some much needed TLC!!! It's nothing fancy, but brings a lot of life to the house. I have been intending to do this for quite some time (since we moved in 6 yrs ago!) and Spring and Summer pass by every year without it getting done! While Clint was out of town last week, my dad and brother (AKA "Hunka Brian" as Emma calls him) came over and worked all day to get this project done and I think they did a great job! I can't wait until next Spring to see how big my shrubs have grown and what they will look like in full bloom! Now I just have to get all my plants and flowers out on the porch and it should be a done deal! Thanks Dad and Bro for your hard work!!!
