The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
It’s time for another TGI-Friday! We’ve had so much going on these past few weeks, it’s been hard to keep up with everything! A proper update is definitely due!
If you follow me on Instagram, and if you watched my Stories, you saw that last week we worked on demo’ing our back patio for the new patio installation. We were scheduled to have the work done this week, we just weren’t sure when they’d be here, but they started all the prep work today! Needless to say, it’s an exciting day around here! They should be finished next week… we’re both so excited to have a new patio!
In all honesty, demo’ing the patio went much easier than we were expecting. It was still a full day, but it came out in nice big sections, which made the process feel like it was going faster. It also helped that the old concrete was in rough shape, so we used the existing cracks to help tear up what was already there.
While we were demo’ing the patio in the back yard, we had a crew working on installing the new landscaping curbing in the front yard. It’s so amazing to see just how much the curbing elevated our front exterior. It added such a nice touch, and we are so close to having grass! It’s felt like a long time in the making, but we’re finally to that point and hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll be able to share another big update.
With it being close to the end of summer, the majority of our landscaping plants will come next year. Honestly, just having grass will feel like a major accomplishment, and definitely something to celebrate!
I’m looking forward to next week… now, off to start canning! It’s going to be a busy weekend!
