I’m lovin’ my Hunter wellies that the Hubs got me for my birthday.
My birthday was in August and the fall boots were just trickling into Nordstrom.
He bought me the graphite gray ones, which I love.
Last year I bought Land’s End wellies,
but the Hubs knew that I had really wanted the original Hunter wellies made in the U.K.
He always tries to get me what I want, so I have to be careful not to take advantage of his generosity.
A friend bought my Land’s End wellies from me, which made me happy that I hadn’t wasted that money.
Here are my Hunter wellies sitting on my Ikea area rug.
These rugs only cost $3.99, and are the sturdiest little rugs.
They look a wee bit coastal cottage which makes me happy.
The price makes me even happier.
Did you notice the pile of gravel in the photo of my boots?
Our wooden deck was poorly designed, poorly built, and starting to decay.
So out it went.
A good friend of ours drew up some options for a new patio for us and then helped put it in.
My nephew and another young man from church helped with the labor as well.
The whole process was really interesting.
You can’t just go laying pavers down on the ground willy nilly and expect a fabulous, long lasting patio.
The Hubs and I, who have no natural abilities in home repair, are so, so thankful for friends who know what they’re doing!
Almost done, and it’s looking great!
Here’s a view from my upstairs office window.
Love the little firepit he rigged up!
I’m lovin’ it!
Now I’m picturing french doors and planters along the edge and new outdoor furniture…
oops! I better not mention it in front of the Hubs.
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE and HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND!
