Our Garden

We started our first ever garden at the end of April not really knowing what to expect.  I would say that both of us were not blessed with a green thumb so it was going to be interesting. 

After talking to A LOT of experienced gardeners about 'how to plant' and 'what to plant'.  We decided to keep it simple with tomatoes, pickling cucumbers, 5 types of peppers (we love peppers!) and for the herbs, some dill and cilantro.  We also planted broccoli and strawberries a couple of weeks later.  We've been told that we won't see any strawberries for a year (not sure if that's true).

First pic after planting.....

A couple of weeks later.....

And now....drum roll please.....

Bam!  Seriously, amazing for two people who have never grown a thing in their life.  It is so gratifying to pick your own food and eat it.  The tomatoes are doing great also but they won't be ready until July.

Danny did do more work than me on this garden so he may have a different opinion but I thought it was so easy and worth the time and money.  I would say that we spent less than $100, but we borrowed a tiller (a must!) and had a friend collect all his chicken poop for our fertilizer and we had such a wet spring that we only watered the plants once.

Alright, well I'm off to eat some cucumber slices with salt & pepper.  Yum!

A NIght at the Ballpark

If you live in St. Louis, you know the one thing that you MUST do every summer is hit up a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.  That's what makes us the 'Best Fans in Baseball' (you don't believe me?  google it).  No matter if we win or lose (we lost by the way), it still is such a good time!

Makeup Routine

I've been so inspired lately by other bloggers sharing their makeup routines that I thought I would share mine.  Makeup really isn't a routine to me but I have been wearing it more often.

5 essentials:  Garnier BB Cream (Light/Medium), Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (Brightener), Mary Kay Blush, Revlon neutral eyeshadow, Bare Essentials mascara (not pictured)

The Garnier BB cream is great and lasts all day.  This is my first BB cream so I really have nothing to compare it too.  Now, the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (Brightener) is amazing!  It just makes your tired eyes POP.

I seriously look a mess when I wake up!

Father's Day

Shirt, Pants, Shoes:  JCPenney
My future husband has a talent of making me laugh.....A LOT!  Some of the things he says is ridiculous.  Here is a little conversation that we had on Father's Day.

Me:  Will you make breakfast today since I made it yesterday?
Danny:  But it's Father's Day!
Me:  Uh, you are not a Father.
Danny:  {Points to window} Do you not see that beautiful black boy outside?

For those of you who don't know......Leo is his dog (you can see him here).

There was a study done that concluded an hour of driving in traffic equals the amount of stress on your body of jumping out of an airplane.  No wonder I am always in a bad mood when I get home.  My body thinks that I have jumped out of two airplanes.

Typical Weekend Outfit

Hat:  Free, Shirt:  Old Navy, Pants:  JCPenney, Sandals:  Target

This is my typical weekend outfit......pants, t-shirt and a hat.  Oh, how I love to wear hats. This hat was free at a Cardinals game I went to last month and I have worn the crap out of it.

Best Thing Ever

If you have long hair, you have to buy this sock bun.  You won't regret it.
