Bachelorette Party

Rhonda's bachelorette party was so much fun! There's nothing like a weekend out in NYC. :-)

Here we are at Pio Pio, a yummy Peruvian restaurant.Rhonda getting ready for the Awesome 80s Prom.

Oh yes ... authentic 80s style for me.80s Prom. Yeah ... believe it or not, this isn't the bachelor party. Haha The cheerleaders did a dance instead of giving speeches to be voted prom queen. lol

Funnily enough, the cheerleader didn't win. The guy in the feather boa on the left won prom queen. hahaha
Me, Rhonda and Mahta.

Meeting Hadley

Last weekend, Chris and I headed to Michigan to meet my 5-week-old niece, Hadley. She is amazing! Here's some pics of our weekend.

Gardening the Day Away

So I did a lot more gardening this weekend. I ran out of mulch, so imagine the bed along the driveway with a lot more of this pretty red mulch.

So I planted something that I thought was tulips out back last summer. But I noticed that it is super tall and still hasn't bloomed.
So I went out there to investigate and I'm fairly certain this isn't a tulip ... but I have no clue as to what it actually is.
Below is a type of sedum called "Lidakense" stonecrop that I just planted. It'll get redish pink flowers later in the summer/fall, I believe, but the real beauty is it's normal foliage. Isn't it pretty?

Here's two of my new plants. The twigs on the right are going to be a hybrid tea rose.This is a Concorde Japanese Barberry. It's going to get tiny yellow flowers and small red fruits on it soon, and then the foliage gets a more intense color in fall.

And this picture is just plain cute.
