Mini Reese eggs are dangerous...

How was your Easter weekend? (Or weekend if you don't celebrate anything.)

All day Saturday, Jared and his brother worked on this. The pavers, the stairs, the raised bed - all built on Saturday. Since I can't begin to lift 250 lb railroad ties and no one in their right mind would let me near a chainsaw, I supervised. This means I said where the pavers should go, agreed that a 5th step was necessary, and went to get chips for lunch. Basically - I did nothing.

After church and Easter lunch on Sunday I did help Jared spread out the 20 bales of straw over the hill in the backyard and the 2 beds in the front yard. What exactly do you need for this kind of yard work? If you're me, Pandora on the iPad and pink gardening gloves. Extra points if you can spy August hiding.

And that brings me back to the candy. I bought no Easter candy. None. Then on Saturday, Jared bought a bag of those mini Reese eggs. Then on Sunday the rest of that first picture came into the house. All bets are off at this point. Anyone want some chocolate? 

How was your weekend?

Productive weekend! Props to Jared and his brother- the did a great job. And that's nice of you to get your hands dirty and help (well, hands clean thanks to the gloves). :) I don't see August! But I want to.

Good job! I got NO chocolate at all for Easter so you did a lot better than me!

I ate way too much chocolate yesterday and totally crashed at 6:00. Sugar high, man. It was awesome.

I'm in such a food coma today. I swear I ate my body weight over the weekend.

I see you have been busy doing the garden. No garden where I live, just flower post, too hot in summer.
Thank you always for your lovely comments Katie.


Awesome! It's looking good! You guys were much more productive than we were. And I didn't even get to have any candy. J will probably go buy me some discount stuff today. It's been done before the day after Valentine's Day. No joke. I married a winner. LOL xoxo

WOW–that is a lot of work! The yard looks beyond fantastic, but now all i can think of is chocolate...
