Best Weekend In a While

What a fun weekend! I was able to spend some quality time with my good friend, Amber, to celebrate my birthday early on Friday night. We had amazing margaritas  dinner at Zapatas, and my favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte after. She even gave me my favorite WoodWick candle! I love her.
  Saturday was pretty laid back, and included a Mommy/Daddy/Baby trip to Wal-Mart, where we lost one of EK's new shoes. We retraced the entire shopping route to no avail, and left with a half-shod baby. It's the new look, you know!  We picked up some compost to put around our trees in the front yard, and rode the Kubota around with Wylie in tow spreading the dirt.

I had just enough left over soil to fix up one of my junk finds from last weekend!
I picked up this metal animal feeder for $5 last weekend while EK and I were shopping for decorations for our home.  I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it! I placed it between two lounger chairs on our deck, so it will serve as a table for drinks, etc. once I remove the huge pumpkin from the top.  I poked a few holes through the bottom for drainage using an ice pick. I recommend a drill, but Ryan is not too fond of me pulling out the power tools. I filled it from the top opening with dirt, then planted the kale and pansies.  

Next weekend, I have plans for these.

I hope that everyone had a great weekend, and I can't wait to see pictures of everyone's little ones in their Halloween costumes! Here's hoping for LOTS of candy for everyone!
