Before and After: Herb Planter

Remember this planter I picked up on the curb?

Well it is now my mini herb garden on our deck.

I bought a can of chalkboard spray paint and painted a strip so that we could label the herbs. I think it gives the planter a little more character...along with the rust spots! I really like it and think it turned out cute!

Have any of you done any projects lately? Do you plant herbs? Any herb tips for us?
P.S. See how the deck chairs turned out here.

Major Sale Alert!

So it has turned into bargain week without me knowing or planning it. I happened to come across another great sale Monday night that I wanted to let you all know about. I decided to stop at Old Navy quick on my way home from work. I saw the commercial on TV advertising their dresses on sale for $15 so I wanted to check them out. I didn't end up buying any of the $15 dresses BUT all the clearance items were an additional 50% off! I didn't go crazy but I came home with 3 pieces that I will get a lot of use out of.

Long Pink Dress $8

Green Tank Top $4
Pink Sports Bra $3.50

Have any of you come across any big sales lately? Let me know... I love a bargain!

A Good Day of Shopping

My Mom and I hit the mall on Saturday and came across a big sale at New York & Company. Everything in the store was 50% off...yes I said EVERYTHING! Here is what I came home with....

The detail on the sleeves - love it!

This shirt can be worn with jeans or dress pants - so pretty!

What can I say... I love black!

The necklace and ring I got - I can't wait to wear the necklace! Did any of you find any good bargins this weekend?

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I thought I would share our delicious supper with you. Lee made fajitas and piƱa coladas that we had with homemade guacamole and the best salsa from our favorite Mexican restaurant. We used the salsa dish we bought in Mexico on our honeymoon :) YUM!!

How did you guys celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

How I Spent My Saturday

We started the morning out at the opening day of the Farmer's Market...

while we were there we had breakfast...

and tasted a little of this...

we came home with a chive plant, coffee beans and a bottle of wine from a local winery. Here in Iowa there aren't any fresh veggies yet but we are looking forward to when they arrive at the market!

Then we picked up a few things at this sale.

We headed out to a nearby lake for a picnic lunch.

The rest of the afternoon was spent running some errands and then we ate here with Lee's parents to celebrate his Mom's birthday. (Totally forgot to have our picture taken while we were there!)

We had a fun weekend! What did you guys do?
