Date at the Depot

I just spent a really nice afternoon with the man. We went to the kid's least favorite store HOME DEPOT. Whenever we go there they all opt to stay home, go figure haha. Which is nice because then we get to hang out together. We went in search of a new bathroom faucet and some little tile thingies that need to be fixed up in the bathroom. We have super hard water here and it's literally ate away the faucet! One of these days when we are grown ups we're going to buy a water softener, but I've heard from the ladies in my book club that that doesn't even solve the problem.

Anyhow, when we remodeled our bathroom (which we figured out today was EIGHT years ago already, crazy), we got these super cute handles on everything. We wanted to replace it with she same kind but couldn't find one anywhere. We tried Home Depot, Lowes and OSH. While we were out we of course had to also look at all the toilet seats, windows, doors, and of course all the plants. Excuse the gross counter/sink, that's the 16 year old's version of "clean".

After trying all the stores we ended up going back to Home Depot to get this one

which isn't the same but at least it's in the same "family" of looks. I need to go back to OSH and get the toilet seat there, since they have "the one" there for $19.99. Silly isn't it!  I think that can wait a few days until payday.

I also bought 2 calla lily plants and some gladiolus bulbs.

Last year I planted some gladiolus bulbs that were supposed to be some pink and some white and they all came up white. I was totally disappointed. Hopefully these will actually be the color they say they are. I've been looking for some more bushes like I have down our front walk, but can only find the really expensive size (like $20 each vs like $7 I paid for the ones I bought). I want to put 2 more on each side on the end sections by the front walk.

(picture taken last summer)

on the bottom of the picture here on  each side of the walk. The beds on those areas are almost completely bare right now while I figure out how I want to redo them. I'm hoping the weather dries up soon so I can get busy out there! I want my yard to look at least as nice as it did last year and right now it looks so bare!

I think I have spring fever. :sigh:

I'm starting to get excited about the vegetable garden too. I can't believe they already have starter plants in the stores! Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, lots of herbs and strawberries are some that I saw.

Are you planting a vegetable garden this year? What are you going to plant? If you are covered with snow just throw a snow ball on me and we can continue this conversation in a few months haha.Pin It
