Yard Work!

The weather was so beautiful today!! After I waited for the plumber to unclog BOTH of my toilets this morning (early morning), my mom and I decided to tackle my yard. We spent practically the whole day doing yard work! We bought some stones and made planters, we bought a ton of plants and flowers, moved some old bushes/flowers around, and planted all the new stuff! And we also mulched around my tree! It looks 100 times better than it did. I wish I had some before pics but all I have is after pics. So here they are!!

I love all the pretty flowers!!

The right flower bed!

This is the left flower bed!

These are the flower beds we made! Aren't the stones nice?!? I love the red flowers I planted on the right!!

So now I am VERY sunburned! Blah... And I didn't have time to run today. Literally couldn't have fit it in if I wanted to!! Plus my right calf muscle is still bothering me from running the other day. Crazy how much one week off can set you back. I work all weekend so not too much running going to get done. Next week though, it's on!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!


  1. Ugh toilet troubles! Glad those got fixed.

    The flowers look so pretty! And you got some quality time with mom...sounds like a winning day to me!

  2. Good job Niki. So pretty. Your hard work makes me want to go work on my yard. Have a good weekend.

  3. That is a great looking garden!

  4. That looks sooo good! Love it!! :)

  5. Looks amazing! Totally love the stones...and you house is so adorable too.

    First sunburn of the year is inevitable. When we are that pale after a long winter no matter what SPF we lather on its bound to happen. Just keep reapplying lotion over the next week so you don't peel. Nothing is worst than peeling.

  6. Awesome girl!!!

  7. Looks great! I left you an award on my blog :)

  8. Wow, so pretty! Can you come over and do my yard? Ah ha

  9. Oh my! This looks perfect! Heavenly!
