This weekend, we had our in-laws visit on Sunday to help us with the house. One of the things we accomplished was new outdoor lighting for the decks (main level and basement). I spaced out on taking a before picture, but just imagine a 1980s outdoor halogen light that had seen much better days (and for that matter didn't even work). After J and my father-in-law installed the lights:
My father-in-law also finished the spray painting, and I ordered a new outdoor umbrella for the deck for my birthday from my in-laws! Pictures to come once everything is in and I can put it all together!
My mother-in-law and I spent our time gardening in the front. However, I haven't taken any pictures yet. We planted some impatients that my mom bought, and they look very pretty in the front. Stay tuned for more gardening updates. And next time, I will have mosquito repellent (I was eaten alive!)
The next day, my new curtains arrived for the kitchen! They are navy striped and look amazing! So excited about them.
