Quick Gardening

Our clothesline used to be attached to our house with these little circle skrews. But now the line is in the yard, but the circle things were still on the side of the house. So I decided to try to do some type of hanging plant thing there. Here is what I came up with....

Now any tips would be appreciated because I am wondering if this will be bad for the siding of the house?

Here are my sunflowers growing strong.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Oh and I got the information on tying the string here.
Skinny Laminx used succulent, however I used herbs.
Check out hers...

Today it is our 4th Anniversary! Here we are on our wedding day.

It was an eventful day although I wasn't really planning much but to make some lasagna for dinner.

Travis was summoned for jury duty only to be dimissed at like 9am. So he joined us for Toddler Story Time at the library. We ran into our favorite coach from high school there, Coach Powers. Then we picked up Schulze's for lunch. Mmmm. Then Travis got called on a job near Boling. So the girls took naps and I figured we would pick up a few things at CVS. Well we walked out of the house without my phone or keys. And the door was locked. Thank goodness Gloria was home and the kids were able to play while I got some things arranged. So in my Nana's car we ran our errands and then went to Boling to get Travis' key. Originally he was going to be home around 6 so I thought we could run errands till then, but things changed and he wouldn't be home till 10 so we went to Boling on our own.

I threw out any plans to make lasagna when we got home around 7:30 or so. My stomach was achey just from anxiety, and Ruth had a small dinner. But Travis called on his way home, up for a Redbox and some lasanga. So last night around midnight while watching the newest Chronicles of Narnia movie, we enjoyed our lasanga. I really enjoyed the olive cheese bread I made (also from Pioneer Woman).

This was delicious! But that is coming from someone who craves green olives all the time, especially when pregnant. This recipe called for Mayo. I am not a fan of it, so I just used a small amount. Travis opted for the just cheese bread in the background.

And I wanted to share this. An easy way to make Creme Brulee. My friend Kathleen, Ruth's godmother, makes amazing Creme Brulee but I am sure her's is all from scratch. But I found this at Kroger's and thought I would give it a try. Delicious.

This is the main reason I tried it....
