This Week I...

Happy Happy Friday!
Since this week was a 4 day week for me, it just flew by!  Why a 4 day week?  Well in this household St. Patricks Day is a celebrated holiday!  I have mentioned before that the hubs plays bagpipes for a couple pipe and drum bands in the fire service, so any time they can play for a joyous occasion it is celebrated... and St. Patty's day is perfect for that!

And of course we do it up right with a daytime pub crawl, matching t-shirts, and 200 of our closest fire friends and family!  Always a good time!  Above was us at the start at 10 am... and this was us at the end at 10 pm!  Pretty true to form!!!

On the home front we filled our pool last weekend! In the end there were no restrictions put on us from the city or county and it was filled in less than 24 hours with 2 hoses!  I am so thrilled with how it turned out!  I can't wait to build the retaining walls {see all of that cinderblock stacked in the background?} and see this finished... 
Our backyard is HUGE!  I mean HUGE!!  So we needed to break up all of the concrete with something... something is our 300 sqft tiger wood deck!  I am in love with it and so excited we splurged and when with the exotic wood.  It will be less maintenance in the long run, and I really just love it way more then redwood!  Here is M taking a break from all of our hard work!

And on a totally funny note... 

My friend sent this to me this weekend and it just made me chuckle!  Yup that is the truth!  
And since my hubs is off for a boys weekend of baseball and beer I will be doing the above at home with my girls!

Such a cute couple! The pool is amazing. Pinning and using as inspiration for this year or next when we put ours in. I'm so glad you guys were able to fill it without issue!

PS - Um, we need to meet up at one of the conferences. Inappropriateness, shenanigans and vodka (wine or scotch)? We'd have a blast!
