Spring is here!!

Hi friends! The weekend went by way to quickly. I need a weekend to recover from the weekend!

On Monday I shared the transformation of our new front steps.  I still love looking at them. It’s the small things that make me happy.  

As I mentioned before, that was only one of the many projects we worked on last weekend.  Home Depot made a KILLING off of us in just a couple of weeks.  We ended up visiting the store a total of six times between the two of us last weekend.  Luckily, we live right down the road from our local store (and the Home Depot Headquarters). With the steps finally getting a face lift, we needed to plant some flowers!

I love HD's flower section... apparently so much that I needed to bring over half of it home with me! 
 

As soon as I got home, I went to work. I pulled all of the weeds so that I could start fresh.


I decided and blue, yellow and of course RED flowers for the front yard.  I love planting red flowers every year.  I think they go well with my front door and flag :)


I also decided to do a stacked planter by the front door after seeing this on Pinterest last week.

I knew I wanted to do something similar, but a little different. We bought these guys instead of the regular clay ones.


We stacked them using bricks then we poured the soil around the bricks to make them sturdy.


The next step was easy... I just planted the flowers!  I love how it turned out.  Even better than the Pinterest version!  So pretty!


We also added a hanging plant.  The house looks so much.  BRING ON SPRING!


I love all of the color!  If you look really closely at the left door, you will see my little Parker man peeking out.  I love that munchkin!

We hosted my sister's baby shower on Saturday.  I'll share pics for the shower later this week.  I can't wait to show you what Hubs made for the baby.

Have you done any Spring planting?  I would love to see pics! Hope you all have a fab week. Talk soon, friends!

xoxo,
Brandi Nell
