Work, work all day long..

When we bought our house, it wasn't in the most perfect shape, especially the outside. It was snowing so there wasn't much we could do, which gave us some time to save up some money.
We took out an old garden, picked up concrete, and columns that were stuck in the ground where an above ground pool was, we were given some Tiger Lilly's and Rose bushes thanks to the neighbors, Corey planted grass, and now we are finally working on the driveway!
 It's day number three, the rock comes this morning, so it will all be done by today. My boyfriend is such a hard worker, not only did he go to work, but he came home and still worked his butt of until the sun went down just to get this project done. I cannot wait to see the finished driveway. One major project done, only 500 more to go!  

What projects are you working on?

Hello State Park

As I was coming back home from the 100 Mile Yard Sale in Pennsylvania, which was such a waste of not only gas, but a waste of time... it was more like trash then treasure. I recommend you don't go, ever.
 Anyways, I was a little mad that I wasted all that time and money to drive two hours out of my way to go, so as I was coming home, I decided to make it up, and stop at this beautiful State Park. 
Bald Eagle State Park is such a pretty place, it's a huge lake, with tons of boat launches, a marina, a beach, a really nice nature inn that overlooks the lake, cabins, camping, hiking.. there is just so much to do there.
I sat back on a quiet dock, and just took it all in for a few hours, watching everyone fishing, canoeing, swimming..
Being in nature just makes everything better.
