Things I Learned Today

1. Sam's Club photos really stink.
2. Wet evening grass in an early Pittsburgh May is REALLY COLD on bare feet.
3. My patio is 12 feet deep by 24 feet wide.
4. I'm a glutton for punishment.

Anyone have any ideas for what I can do to spruce up this yard? Consider that most of our yard is being torn up in a few weeks to rebuild a retaining wall, and that I have two small children who will want to help.

And while you're thinking on that... what colors should we paint the door, front porch and trim? That's going to need repainting soon, and the beigy beige beige-icity that is my house leaves me so drowsy I can barely stay awake. It's a swell house, we're enjoying it but GOSH... can you say VANILLA??? You get points for creativity. And by points I mean I won't hit you up to babysit the boys.

I barely have ideas for my own backyard, so I don't think I can help you out! It looks nice and green though, so that's good :)

As for colors for the house...hmm...maybe a dark gray with red trim? Or white trim? And a red door? I'm a huge fan of red doors (even though ours in brown...meh). Good luck on the choices!

oops, I meant ours "is" brown!
