What you won't see here (yet) are the results of the backbreaking labor Ian and I took part in this weekend with our home! Pruning bushes, mowing the lawn, creating new mulch beds, planting flowering vines that will -- we hope -- creep up a trellis soon, washing the cars, weed-eating, are you tired yet?
We both need massages to ease our sore muscles! Luckily, we were able to mix the yardwork up with a little fun in the evenings. It's so important!
|Kim, Lindsay and me|
Friday night, Lindsay and I biked down to Piedmont Town Center where they feature live music. Friday's band was Chairman of the Board.
We got to see them sing a few songs, including "Carolina Girls," before the rain started! Lindsay and I ran back to our bikes and pedaled home in the rain.
Saturday evening, Ian and I decided to have a low-key night. Dinner consisted of take-out Cobb salads from Dean & Deluca (a favorite of ours).
Across from our D&D is a "sister" spot -- the Dean & Deluca Wine Room. We stopped in there before picking up our dinner for a drink. We both agreed it was the highlight of our night. Such a simple thing to do, but it allowed us great time to hang out together. We'd been in the yard together all day, but this was just good time to talk and connect.
Sunday morning kicked off for us with a run, breakfast together on the patio, and then more yardwork. We celebrated all of our accomplishments together with dinner in our screened porch.
Grilled buffalo chicken with blue cheese, coleslaw, and mac & cheese. We earned it!
More weekend updates coming soon, including yard updates and a big new purchase for moi!
