Lately we've been all about working on our backyard - our patio is completed and next up is grass. Tonight we put up some pretty lights too. I'm so happy that we're finally making some progress (slowly but surely) after owning our home for over 2 years. So exciting. :)
Hiii! I'm so happy it's the weekend. We're doing our Mother's Day celebration this Sunday because we were driving home for 7 hours last Sunday, and I'm really excited. I can't decide what we should do either- relax around the house? Take a day trip? Go downtown and hang out? We shall see!
I hope your week was awesome. I so appreciate all of you who stop by everyday, and I wish all of you the happiest of weekends too!
Here are some favorite things from around the web this week...
Do you use Jux? I've talked about it a ton over the past few months and for good reason- it's the way I document my every day stuff that's important, but doesn't always make it onto the blog! And good news, it's coming to your phone! Their mobile app is set to launch soon, and Jux is giving away a few Beta apps to a few of you. To win one, simply leave a comment below with your email, letting me know you'd like to try it. If you haven't tried Jux yet, but you're someone who loves telling your story, or even someone who just likes to try to new cool thing before anyone else does, you've gotta get this on your phone!
