Weekend WIN & Yard Work
I'm just now getting around to posting last weekend's events. I've been a little "under the weather" with a head cold due to all of this beautiful Fall weather we're having. On Saturday, we went over to the Givens to cook out and watch the big WIN with the Mims'. Elizabeth and I attended the Cooper Young Festival while the guys pre-partied with their beer and ribs. We had a great time hanging out in the front yard until late that evening.
We spent all day Sunday tending to yard work. Russell did the hard work by mowing and trimming all of the hedges that I pointed out, while I finally planted a flower bed around my mailbox and pulled the dead flowers and weeds left over from the Spring. I also dressed up the front porch with some fresh mums. I found a coupon for 8" mums in a basket for $2.99 at another store and Lowes matched the price! The maroon mums were not fully bloomed yet but I'm hoping by this weekend they'll be ready for tailgating. I also picked up a new house plant and some baby pumpkins for some indoor decor.
