Happenings at Home

This post is coming a bit later than usual today because yesterday was super busy with my freshman daughter’s last high school soccer game!

Go #22!

Then this morning I was over at Maker’s Bench with my mom helping her get started on her new cedar raised garden bed. At the same time my youngest was having dance auditions.

Go mom, go!

Our May is off to a wild start already and It’s only the 4th! Does yours feel crazy too? But at least our lilacs are blooming and our peonies are getting close too!

Last week My youngest and I put together some really fun self watering VEGO planters! I needed more because I have a seed buying problem.🤣 And the crazy part is that we can’t even plant here in Colorado until May 8th and even that looks iffy. The nights are still so cold!

This Week On The Blog

With Mother’s Day being just around the corner I thought it would be fun to round up some great gift options. Of course they happen to be geared towards people who love to garden! Check out this post, 25+ Best Gifts for Gardeners (Lazy Gardener Approved!).

Links and Loves

I have some fun links to share with you all today. Did you know if you click a shopping link in one of my posts and buy something (even if it’s not the same item I have linked) I earn a commission? Pretty awesome right? I am always thankful when you shop through my links. It helps keep this little blog afloat.

  • I found these the other day and I couldn’t get them out of my head. So pretty!
  • I have these in white but I am LOVING the blue!
  • Need a fun spring dress for graduations, Mother’s Day, etc? Check this one out I jsut got!
  • Ok, the ultimate lazy girl garden hack was buying these!

And don’t miss this week’s BEST SELLERS! So fun to see them all in a pretty little collage.
