Rock Fountain Bubblers

We are in the process of updating our landscape & recently saw at a friends house her new rock fountain bubbler.  These are really a nice addition to the landscape & are supposed to be the most simplest of fountains & maintenance free (will have to convince the husband of this).   Here are a few examples:

Or instead of using a rock, you could use a vase:

I mentioned a few days ago that we were out of town last weekend. We were in Park City UT & had a great time.  We visited downtown SLC & I took this pic of some of the pretty flowers. I am sending you these today & wish you a fun weekend & TGIF! :)

New Washer/Dryer??

My husband & I were in Lowe's recently & were checking out the front load washing machines. As we were checking it out, a man came up to us & asked, 'are you thinking about buying a front load washing machine?'. Uh, well we were thinking about it since our current (top loading) washing machine is 22 years old.  'Well, whatever you do, do NOT buy one. Your clothes will smell like mildew!'.  

This was enough for me to do a little more internet research.  I found this blog post regarding this exact topic & have decided when the time comes, we will be buying another top loader washing machine.  That is just too much work to prevent the front loader from making our clothes smell bad.  Any thoughts from anyone out there who already has a front load?

Latest Read

We were out of town this past weekend & while traveling, I needed a book. This was a quick (as in really quick) read while on the plane.  I found it interesting & found Princess Di to be one who liked adventure.  It's available at our local library. Click here for an exclusive interview with the author Richard McDonough!

Happy Tuesday!

Product Alert

Hi Guys, I'm still here. Been kind of light on the DIY posts here lately but today I have a product alert. Are you fair skinned & don't really tan that well? Or, are you smart & don't want to go to the tanning beds? Here's a nice product that will give you a nice glow & it actually smells great.  I found mine at Sally's but I've heard it's at Walmart as well.  Click here for more reviews:

Happy Wednesday!
