Happy Earth Day!

First, if you haven't already, see yesterday's post for my first contest ever... with a pretty cool prize (I think).

Secondly, if you are on facebook... friend Dell!
I planted one in honor of my little brother.

Now with that out of the way, Happy Earth Day, y'all!!

As you've probably noticed, I'm a huge fan of Earth Day. This is a special one... seeing as its the 40th anniversary, and its Gwen's first. ;-) We're not doing anything HUGE, but Gwen is honoring the occasion by wearing her pretty green onesie, I'm wearing my pretty green scarf, and we are going to go for a nice walk in a bit (once Miss Gwen wakes from her nap). We're going to head to the little playground nearby and check out the swings. This weekend I'm going to buy a small plant (tree, bush, flowers... we'll have to see what looks nice!) to put in our yard for Gwen. Tonight we'll probably eat dinner outside on our new outdoor patio set. Our other stuff was falling apart, and this stuff is really nice and will definitely encourage us to spend more time outdoors.

Here are some quickie pics I snapped this morning:
Four regular chairs, and two swivel chairs.
(Ignore the bag of sand! That was from another yard project Trav was working on.)

Its currently sitting by the house, but our fire pit will probably go in the empty space in the near corner. 

Here's a closer look at the chairs: 
They have nice, thick cushions too... but it rained last night, so they are inside.

Also inside, the huge umbrella that goes with!
Perfect for those hot summer day that are fast approaching.

While I was out there I grabbed a few more shots of the beautiful morning:
So pretty...
Daisy was loving it:

On a non-Earth Day related note... I got the Gwen bracelet my very talented friend made for me. It's awesome! I can't wait to wear it to work.

The bead is amethyst colored, since that is the February birth stone. 

The back says, "Gwenivere Mae  02.16.2010"
Love it!

Well, on that note, I'm going to go get my Earth Day started!

Have a great day!!

  1. Happy earth day to you too hun :) The pics are great! Looks like you had a awesome day :) We did too, we actually just got back from walking to the bank, cvs and turkey hill which are down the road. A nice little walk on a great day!

    The patio furniture looks neat too! I wish we had enough room for a table and chairs, but our deck is alittle tiny (but at least we have one for an apartment!). I hope you have some good times eating outside :) We LOVE grilling and would love eating outside too if we had the right stuff :)


Leave me some love!
