I Never Promised You a Rose Garden...

When we bought this house, it came with a fenced in rose garden with 21 rose plants. We weren't sure what to expect but so far..amazing! What do you think?

weekend update...

Success! Both staff bbq's went really well and I think all who came enjoyed themselves - and didn't leave hungry:) The weather cooperated for both events - whew!
Here are the beautiful Bodacious ladies in Barb's flowery backyard...
and the gift bags...
G's staff bbq in our backyard...
enjoying our new swing...
An amazing rose from our garden...I wish I could scratch and sniff the beautiful scent for you!
my backyard's coming along and my strawberries are almost ready to eat...

A couple of our friends stayed the night so there was some extended partying into the evening, fantastic breakfast of leftovers and then off to the beach for the afternoon.

All's quiet now and I'm sitting in my backyard watching all the birds enjoy whatever they can find on the grass and a cruise ship slowly going by.
Another pic of our living room colour...

How was your weekend?
Oh, and remind me to tell you how much I love badminton! Ummm...I guess I just did.

Wednesday wandering...

I got up, got dressed and hurried off to do my shift at Molly's Lane this morning only to realize I wasn't scheduled to work today! Ha...that left a whole unscheduled day to do...stuff. Trying to get our living room back in order after painting it last weekend. What do you think?
I love the colour - very bright and tropical. We also got a new patio set from the brick which we picked up. I can't wait to set it up and have a real table and chairs set with umbrella. There's pretty much no shade on our yard at this time of year so we really need to create some of our own. G's having his staff bbq here this Saturday, so we're also prepping for that -
groceries - check
liquor - check
bubbles for the kids - check
badminton set - check.
Last night we attended the first evening of the Sunshine Coast Youth Idol competition (as a Bodacious sponsor). It was pretty sweet. All girls - all nervous! Ages ranged from 12-17. It takes a lot of confidence to get up in front of a crowd like that. There was some amazing talent - it will be fun to see it progress week to week.
Back in the city tomorrow and having our Bodacious staff bbq at Barb's. That should be fun. We just had one of our best weekends ever at the store and it's time to celebrate!
Gotta go put the patio set together so we can have dinner outside tonight.
