Weekend review 4/12/14 - 4/13/14.

 Friday night, Melissa wanted to watch Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. I didn't, so I watched, Your Highness. Eh, it was okay. Not a buy, but good enough to kill some time. After we both watched our own movies, we watched Homefront with Jason Statham. I thought it was pretty good. 

Well we finally got to do some real work on and around the house. We have seen other houses around with pavers, or decorative bricks, outlining trees, gardens and flower beds. We wanted to do something like that with ours. We have an HOA, which means you have to put in an application to make changes around your house. It's both good and bad, but you know most people don't do it. So months ago we put in our application. Months later, they approved it. Now we just had to have some money and a nice day to do it. Cut to the weekend.

 It was absolutely gorgeous weather. 65 plus all weekend. We headed to a new to us, store, called EE Lumber. We receive their ad all the time but nothing really caught our eyes. We needed some weed killer but not grass killer. Well EE Lumber had what we were looking for. It was actually cheaper than Lowes for the same product. It has lumber in the name so I was hoping I could find a board to fix a rotted out one on our fence and the pavers we wanted. 

 We pulled into the parking lot. Lumber galore so at least we could get the board and spray. Well to our surprise, they had a display area for decking and the bricks set up right up in front. Score! We headed in the store, I found the board I needed. This amazing store actually even ripped the board down for free. We found the spray and got the sku for the bricks. We paid and they sent someone out to help load the car with our bricks. Another score in my eyes. So the car looking like a lowrider, we decided to go back to the house and drop off the bricks and run the rest of our errands.

Obligatory, before and after picture.
 Saturday night:
After putting in the bricks, power washing the patio and putting in new bark in a couple places. It was time to BBQ. This was the fire one of the summer and it turned out amazing.

 After the barbecue, we made some s'mores. Now we don't have a fire pit or anything, so we found the next best thing. It is a barbecue s'mores device. We found this on Amazon and we had to give it a shot. It actually did very, very well. I can't wait to make them again.

We had our normal chores in the house to do. After the normal chores, we decided to wash our cars. Melissa, found this new snack on Pinterest and it turned out amazing. Salami, cream cheese and green peppers. Put the salami kind of overlapping itself. Spread the softened cream cheese on the salami. Sprinkle the sliced pepper over the cream cheese. Roll the the whole thing together. Place it in the fridge for a couple hours so it can setup. Cut and enjoy.

 Sunday night:
We were both extremely tired and exhausted. We watched the MTV Movie Awards. We got to see Grumpy Cat and have some strawberry shortcake. This was an extremely busy and exhausting weekend but it was actually a great one. I can't wait to have another great weekend. I hope you did too, till next time.
