Weekend in photos...

I am anti-clever today and went with the captain obvious blog title...please forgive me!

We started the weekend by gathering the troops. We were dogsitting the Gyllenhaals for my parents so that was fun. They had one encounter with Jasper that didn't last long once Maggie got involved. I'm not sure Jasper's going to come around anytime soon as long as he thinks the big white dog's still there!

This dresser has been in our apartments/house for the 3 years we have been married. Before that, it was assistance for David's bachelor lifestyle. It was in desperate need of a new identity. I painted it to match our sleigh bed and the night stands in our bedroom. Wha-la! Now I just need to get rid of my HUGE armoire in our bedroom....

My main goal for our much anticipated weekend at home was adding some color to the flower beds. We had a rough summer (months of drought) and a long, rough winter (by Texas standards not D.C. standards.....) so I lost several plants and the yard was looking fairly rough. I'm still sore from hours and hours of pulling weeds, planting flowers, etc, but I'm so glad it's done!

I rewarded myself with a nice Sunday afternoon at the UT baseball game! It was not OSU's weekend as UT took it to them all 3 games. Mom and I enjoyed the gorgeous weather and a "W" isn't so tough either! I wish some of their luck would have rubbed off on the Mavs....

What did you do this weekend? Any suggestions for something great to plant in my backyard where it is almost completely shaded??

I think it is the cutest thing in the world that your parents dogs are named the Gyllenhaals. I giggle every time I see that :) Pretty flowers! I need to do the same darn thing!
Have a good week!

Your garden looks great! We did a lot of planting this weekend since we finally completed the pool area. So far we did potato vines in purple and green. So pretty and easy!! Next weekend... flowers :)
