So This Happened….

May 30, 2018

It was a long winter y’all.  Like really long.   I mean it snowed in April for goodness sake!  Multiple times!  So, what do you do during a long, harsh, cold winter like that?

Well, hubs and I poured a glass of wine, lit some candles, snuggled up under the covers, and…

…decided to build a POOL!  Yep!   This is our new backyard view!  Since moving here almost 3 years ago, we have missed having a neighborhood pool, so we bit the bullet and just went for it!

How many of you thought I was pregnant?  Sorry, Mom.  You know I can’t resist a good prank.  That factory is shut down.  And the belly…well, that’s left over from the 2 hooligans we created.  I will probably never have a flat stomach again, but that’s ok because WE HAVE A POOL!

And it couldn’t have been more perfect timing.  Although our winter was long and drawn out, we actually started the process in November.  They were able to get pretty much everything completed before the new year, except for a few things, which they knocked out quickly once the last snow melted.  We were able to swim for the first time on May 4th!  I even went down the slide!

So there you have it.  That’s what we have been up to all winter!  We still need to get some landscaping around and I have been working on getting patio furniture and stuff.  Maybe once I get all of it put together, I will do a little patio reveal.  In the meantime, I wanted to share our news because I am sure you will see an overload of pool pics this summer, and now you know why!
