Where The Green Grass Grows

Such a procrastinator am I.

It's been about 5 days now that I've been saying to myself, "I should blog today". Before I know it, it has almost been a week since I posted! How do these things happen?

Time flies when you are having fun. The hubby's cousin and his wife were in town for the weekend, so we spent a good amount of time hanging out with the fam. They came in on Friday afternoon, which means the drinking of cocktails commenced at about 5 o'clock at the hubby's aunt's house. At some point in the evening the hubby and I, the hubby's cousin and his wife, and the hubby's aunt wandered over to our house. We played Rock Band, (we are so cool, aren't we? *eye-roll*) and honestly had a dance party until 3 am.  I haven't stayed up that late in many years (I'm old). The hubby has a flashlight with a strobe function that he turned on, which has resulted in our house being renamed "Club Jarrell".

As you can imagine, the hangover was intense on Saturday. After a morning of subsisting primarily on Pedialyte, the time came to imbibe in cocktails once again. People once again ended up at our house, but we only stayed up until 12 am this time. Needless to say, I'm drying out this week :)

Moving on.

The hubby has been hard at work on the yard the last couple of weeks. We've finally got our first patches of grass coming up! I have never been so excited for grass. Well, at least the kind of grass that you call a lawn :)

In other house news, carpenter bees started eating our porch. Bastards. We discovered their holes yesterday, and now I've got the hubby out painting the porch so they'll leave it alone (they only eat untreated wood).

On the plus side, I'm really liking the look of the porch painted. We were always planning on doing it at some point, that point just came sooner than it was initially prioritized.

To round up this very ramble-ly post, I've got a picture of the exhausted pups after the busy weekend:

You'd think they were the ones drinking on consecutive nights :)

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
