We bought our home in 2014, and while it’s been almost two years (#timeflies), so many rooms are incomplete for me. That tends to happen when both of us have full-time jobs, a full-time blog, and law school to juggle. But we have a nice little savings after several months, and it’s time to dip into said account and spruce this place up! I’m so ready, you guys.
A big draw to our home when house hunting was the backyard. With two pups, an outdoor space was necessary for them! Plus, we like to entertain, and we both knew an outdoor area to do so was big on our list.
Since moving in, the only real thing we have done to the outside is have a fence installed. Unfortunately, we need new grass and plan to have sod installed (is that how you phrase it? I don’t even know) sometime soon. Jason (bless him) tried growing new grass with seeds, last spring, but it’s so much work and his time is limited, as is my patience – whoops. The good news: My sisters’ work for a construction company and can get us a really good price! The bad news: we’re on their time since we’re family, so we wait..for now.
In the meantime, I am lusting over a few fancy finds to spruce up our current outdoor space. I’m dreaming of dinner parties al fresco, ladder ball and brews, and a chance to sit on the patio with mah man and watch the sunset (we have a pretty awesome view!)
