New Cell Phone

Jake and I leaped into the "high tech cell phone world" this past week with new cell phones. We switched carriers and got an "everything" plan that allows us to talk, text and surf the web an unlimited amount each month!! I have to say that I have wore my battery down almost every day since I got the phone last week. I got a Sam-sung Epic and I'm LOVING all the cool stuff I can do on it!!

Spring Landscaping

This past Saturday, Jake and I were able to get out in our yard and start a landscaping project we've been wanting to do for a long time. We have 4 trees in our front yard that the previous owners had put mulch around. However, by the time we bought the house, it was already in dire need of re-mulching and 4 years later we've finally gotten around to it. We got two of the 4 trees done and hope to get the other 2 done sometime soon. We had several bricks left over from our brick patio we put in last year, so we not only mulched around the trees, but made a little barrier around the trees with the bricks. Here are a couple pictures of the trees we landscaped around.

The centerpieces at my birthday party had real tulips in them, so I kept them in soil until I could plant them and was able to plant them here on the corner of our yard. The flowers have all fell off and soon I should be able to pull the dead stems away from the bulb and wait for them to come back pretty next Spring. I'd also like to get a couple yard ornaments of some kind to put in this landscaping to spruce it up a bit.
