Weekend Recap + Gardening

Don't you just love the spring?! The lovely weather, the beautiful flowers...

Justin and I had a pretty awesome weekend. We spent a great deal of time in Dalton, the carpet capital of Georgia (or so they say) picking out the carpet we will make into a rug. Then, on the way home, we stopped in Marietta and walked around the square shopping in antique and thrift stores. It's definitely one of my favorite places to roam.

The following day, before starting work on our garden, we went to one of my favorite places for breakfast and ate the most delicious peach pancakes with homemade whipped cream. Yum!

Our garden came together pretty quickly. We focused on planting just a few vegetables (fruits?) that we frequently consume, specifically tomatoes, okra, zucchini, squash, and basil. I can't actually say I helped much with the planting, but I did have a lot of fun taking pictures at the local Home Depot in the garden section. (Poor Justin had to garden shop alone as I was a bit distracted.) Plants were on sale for $2 a pot, so we quickly filled our buggy with approximately 3 of each type we wanted. (Apparently it's best to plant in 3s?) 

Of course, we also bought a few other things while we were there including mats for the front and back doors. It gets pretty tiresome sweeping and vacuuming up all of the dirt, grass, etc... that gets brought in on our shoes. Hopefully the mats will prevent that from being such a problem in the future.

By the end of the weekend, our garden was completed and we were quite happy although somewhat tired. We are now impatiently waiting for the vegetables to grow, so that we can start saving money at the grocery store and enjoying delicious homegrown vegetables. I'm not sure there is anything better. :)
