his+hers: weekend projects



We worked on a bunch of house projects this weekend, mostly outside because we had incredible weather (the first time since winter!). Above are both of Q's projects, since mine aren't as easy to photograph (a clean house, loads of laundry, planting bulbs, napping in the sun...).

The first are stairs Q built for our patio, the second is a box garden he made for me. I'm already excited at the thought of walking out to our patio to pick tomatoes and herbs! If I can make them survive. Still have to paint the stairs and extend the patio in front of the box garden, but we're getting there.

And, the weather was so summer-like that we ended the weekend with a walk on Sunday evening, taking pictures of the neighborhood and getting ice cream at a very crowded Coldstone on our way back. Sometimes, weekends with full to-do lists turn out to be the really good ones.

Productive weekends are my faves!!! That was similar to ours too - the weather was just gorgeous! I love how everyone in the midwest comes out to play once it gets warm.

Sounds like a glorious weekend! I'm so excited for your patio garden! We're hoping to have one by this time next year, just have to find that house to buy first!

Looks great! Growing your own veggies is much better tasting than buying them at the store.

Your man is very talented! I guess you two are the perfect creative couple :)
The box garden is such a great idea! Can't wait to see the herbs and veggies you'd be growing :) I'm sure they'd be much more delicious than the ones you can buy at the store.

p.s. I am jealous of the great weather you're having! I had to take out the sweaters again :D
