Happy Late Monday! (Tuesday Edition)

Wow! What a weekend! Hubby and I decided to get a bunch of projects done this weekend! I'm not sure how we did it, but I can tell you we definitely got by with a little help from our friends!

Our first Mission? Project: Gravel Drive. We have a pretty efficient driveway, however we live on a busy street and people can't park on it. Our solution was just to create a second driveway (where our grass was dying from lack of rain anyway!)

Making sure the gravel is "just right" (you know, every pebble has his place!)

Shoveling gravel onto the driveway

Almost finished! (just have to get rid of all the extra dirt!)
I helped place the rocks around the driveway :)

We also worked on our sunroom. I've been wanting a bench for awhile now so somehow we had time to also build a bench this weekend!

My succulents!

Bench courtesy of the Hubby and his sweet skills
I helped place the pillows in their proper position!

On Sunday I went with my friend on a dinner cruise party for her work on the Kemah Boardwalk. It was pretty exciting because I had never been before!

Oh, and it was exciting because we were on a boat!
(Warning: probably shouldn't listen at work)

Home for sale. Any takers?

We're on a boat!!! (We got our flippy floppys)


Just because he is sooooo handsome! 
(Tibbs is letting me know he is ready for dinner!)

How was your weekend? Hope you have a great week! It's back to Summer School for me! *sigh* But one week until HAWAII!!!! (6 days)!
