Five on Friday - House Improvements

Linking up with April, Christina and others today for Five on Friday!

ONE - on Monday I pulled up to la casa and saw this.  I was shocked at how large it was.  It was the line for the backflow preventer that will serve our new irrigation system.  We were hesitant to spend $10,000 or more on a well and never hit water...the guy two doors down spent $14,000 and still didn't hit water.  Yeah so public water with a new meter it is.  

TWO - Mills was less than pleased at the people in his front yard and decided to make himself right at home.  By all means Mr. Mills!

THREE - my friend Lisa and I had a spur of the moment run up to HomeGoods on Tuesday night.  She lives in the neighborhood so it was easy.  It kinda feels like I live in my own (with Kevin) sorority house sometimes because we just decide randomly to do something and I'll zip over to a neighbors house in my pajamas haha.  I like living amongst friends!

David Yurman randomly this week...second from right necklace..yes!

FOUR - cruised up to wild and wonderful West Virginia this week to check on a project I have going on.

Very muddy site.  Glad I was prepared!

FIVE - I arrived back home yesterday to find the irrigation guys packing up.  We have irrigation now!  Next step - our landscaping guy will be back tomorrow or Saturday to aerate and plant A LOT of grass!  I want it to look like our across the street neighbor's yard.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I always apologize to her that they have to look at our yard haha!

Happy Weekend to yall!

You'll love having an irrigation system. Sorry you had to go through all that yard crap just to get it! Jealous of your awesome neighbors! Mine are all older :/ have a good weekend!

I have major yard envy of your neighbor's yard. Every time we get grass to grow in one part of our yard it dies in a different part. Who knew it was so hard, and expensive, to grow grass?!?!

Might be a mess now, but it's an investment for a beautiful future lawn!!

Lol, your neighbor has impressively green grass! Also, that is so fun that you live amongst friends. :)
