Labor Day Yard Work – Putting the “Labor” in Labor Day!

No comments

We decided to spend our Labor Day doing… LABOR. And lots of it! We really needed to redo our front beds (soil, mulch, flowers, everything…), so we decided to take advantage of Jon’s day off and knock it all out.

Lucky for us, Houston Garden Centers was doing their 70% off sale. We had one huge haul…

Okay, two huge hauls…

The toddler came at a great price, too.

and climbed into he bottom of the cart to come along for the ride. He’s no fool. He got in the shade and was carted around the whole place while we hmmmed and hawwweed over what bushes + flowers to buy.

He did put in some hard labor of his own, too. He was our resident dirt pusher and water drinker.

OMG that backwards hat and those chubby stinkin’ cheeks.

Here’s the BEFORE:

(side note: we had to have our front walk re-poured because the rebar was poking through the fresh concrete and rusting every time it rained…)

I love fall, and I really, really love this cute yard sign we got from Joss + Main. It adds a little Southern flair to the yard which is always a good thing!

I tried this Sous La Roche to celebrate our Day of Labor, and it did not disappoint! It’s super light, crisp, and perfect for a day spent sweating and working. It’s like the wine version of beer… if that makes sense. Definitely recommend this one!
