I stopped on my way home from work today at Bed, Bath & Beyond. My goal was to purchase a couple of patio chairs and a cute little matching table for my back deck. It's my last big purchase for my oasis to come together and I finally decided these would be the perfect chairs. I was very excited to find out that they would accept both my 20% off coupons at the same time. So, I carefully picked out my chairs and table, paid the cashier and took them to my car. This where the "Ughhh" comes in. I couldn't get them in my car! If someone had a camcorder with them today, they would be in the running for big money on "America's Funniest Home Videos"! I tried and tried but no way were they going in my Taurus! I did get one in on the front passenger side and YES, it got stuck! I would have left it there and had Curtis get it out but I couldn't drive WITH A CHAIR LEG IN MY RIB! After almost 30 minutes, I gave up and returned them to the store. I don't know what I am going to do to get those chairs to my patio but I WILL find a way! I thought I could get my Dad's truck but that's not possible right now. Hmm, I'll have to think on that and get back to you all later.

"Pink! Pink is my favorite color!"

That is the answer you will receive if you ask Allison what her favorite color is. So, of course, I let Allison's favorite color dictate my color palette when choosing my flowers for my patio. Okay, it wasn't really all for her. I love pink too!

My goal this year is to make our patio a relaxing, comfortable oasis. A place where we can just enjoy each others company and escape a bit from the busy, hectic world. I don't know if I'll be able to achieve exactly what I have in mind, but I am going to try my best.

I've started with container gardening and used "Hot Pink Sensation" geraniums as my main flower and built around them with shades of purple and white with a few green plants thrown in as well. I like how my pots don't look perfect. I like the haphazardness of them. Here are a couple pictures of my planted containers. You can click on the pictures to see them larger.

This is my favorite one.

That's all I have time for now! I'll keep post pictures of the whole patio when I am done.

I'm back!!!!!!!!!!

It has been forever since I've blogged! I don't want to go into the details why so I am just going to jump in as if I never left blogland!

So, here it goes!

Tonight's the night!

The 2 hour season finale of Desperate Housewives! I know this show is a stretch from reality but I LOVE it! I love that it totally takes my thoughts away from cleaning, work, laundry, bills, etc. for an hour every Sunday night for some laughs and mindless entertainment! This season went too quickly!

Let's take the housewife quiz: Which Desperate Housewife
Are You?

I am: Lynette.

It makes perfect sense to me. The working mother just trying to keep everything together!

I've got to run and get some things done before my show!

Have Fun!
