Spring in full swing

The view from our backyard, I feel so at peace out there 
I have been finishing up painting our bedroom- when I say finishing up I mean I only have a few more parts along the trim! I probably should be doing that right now.  I can’t wait to put our room back in order. I love how the color scheme worked out. We have been having a blast learning how to do at home projects ourselves. We have learned a lot and one of my most prized tips I feel I must share.

You know when you buy a case of water at the store? Well after the water is all gone you're left with a cardboard box thing. Well that my friends is the key to worry-free painting! I put my paint gallon, brushes, tape, and wet cloth inside the box. You can just drag it along with you to each wall you are painting. I am messy and I constantly lose things- This makes painting a breeze.  You should try it next time you have a painting project!

We have been trying to spend at least an hour outside each day. The wind in our town hasn't made it very pleasant. Luckily, Terrance is constantly warm; so I bundle up and we head out to brave the wind. Seriously you guys, sometimes I don’t know how Terrance can stand in it! Regardless, we have been seeing some awesome results from it. First off our garden is really starting to look completely cleaned out. I am in the process of turning all the dirt. It is a BIG garden but I enjoy the work out I get from doing it! Also, Terrance LOVES being outside… You will find him running his lawn mower or trying to use a big rake. You also can’t beat the vitamin D that we are both getting from the sun; I also don’t mind that I can already see tan lines!

Our indoor garden is looking fabulous. They are on their 3rd day of the lighting cycle. (More about that can be found here). I seriously can’t believe how easy it is to grow seeds! I also didn't think that Trent would be as into it as he is! It is really fun to peak in there to watch them grown. I hope that we get to eat them all as yummy veggies this summer!

This is some pictures of the troops standing strong!

Thanks for reading along! I hope you tackled your Monday and will rest your head feeling accomplished. I am off to go finish up the paint. Have a great week! I hope all the April showers bring us lots of may flowers!
