Friday Faves!!

It's Friday. 
We've had a fun, productive week here.  How about you?

Now, it's time to link-it-up!  Check out all the lovely ladies I'm linking up with below!
Here are my top things from this week:
It was my hubby's birthday this week!  Birthdays these days are quite low-key.  We had his parents over for dinner (Caprese grilled cheese and gazpacho) and cake (vanilla with vanilla frosting, all food requested by the birthday boy). 

The kids helped decorate his cake (I wish I could blame them for the horrible frosting job, but I can't....) open his presents and blow out his candles.  They're quite helpful!
I know, I know, I post about it constantly, but I'm just so excited about it.  Since my last update, we have done more work.  We've got the new path almost done!  Oh, and we have rhubarb coming up.  I love rhubarb!!

(Have you seen our diy garden gates yet?  If not, check them out!)
I'm currently hunting for a buffet-type piece of furniture for our kitchen, as well as a china cabinet.  I'm really liking these so far:


Where is your favorite place to find furniture?  I may need to visit some antique stores soon...


Last night I went with my girl Marie to a Do-it-Herself Workshop put on by our local Home Depot.  We went to make planters, but we both left with (halfway made) tables.  Neither of us had quite enough time to finish, so I will hopefully finish mine this weekend.  Stay tuned!

I was REALLY excited about using a drill....Jason won't let me use power tools at home.... ;)

I've had my new Canon for a couple weeks now, but still haven't played around with it much.  Just taking regular pictures, I'm loving the crispness and clarity that it brings!  Here are a few of my favorite photos I've taken with it so far:



Hope you all have a great weekend!  I plan on spending mine in my happy place - aka - my garden :)

Until next week!
