This post is another round of this and that and what's been going on around here, with a few garden pics thrown in for good measure.
I added some Angelonia to my garden recently. They're supposed to be able to take our heat, so I'll keep you posted. I picked them up in purple and white. My garden center had these on sale for $1 apiece, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. :)
Over the years, I've had several requests to do a post about how we designed our backyard garden. I'm finally sitting down to do that, but it's taking awhile because I have so much to say (big surprise - ha!) I've been furiously snapping pics of the backyard in between all the rain we've had and will hopefully have the post up soon.
So, by now I'm sure most of you have seen the famous "Chewbacca Lady" but in case you haven't, click below to see her. You'll laugh until you cry!
I love this woman and the simple joys she gets from everyday things (like Chewbacca masks) I could be her best friend. :)
We finally saw "The Revenant" the other day and it was really good.
But...this was the closest I've come to actually tossing my cookies while watching a film. Those of you that have seen it probably know what I'm talking about, and I'm not going to spoil it for any who have yet to see it, but oh my goodness. There's one scene that's so gross. The reason I almost lost it was because I knew what he was doing was real. Like, let's just say he was consuming something and it wasn't a prop. They filmed the scene with both a prop and again with the real thing, but the real thing was what made it into the final cut. Ewww!
Other than that, it was fantastic and I can see why it won so many awards. Even with it being almost 2 1/2 hours, it kept my attention the whole time.
I finally binge watched several episodes of Fuller House too.
It was cute and so neat to see all of them together again. I don't know if I'll watch all 10 episodes, but it was something to keep me occupied while my oldest and hubby were glued to the tv watching racing all.day.long. Apparently the Indy 500, Monaco Grand Prix, and the Coca Cola 600 make them very happy. We love Jr. around here. (that's Dale Earnhardt Jr. for you non-racing people) Lol!
We also recently watched "Room" which I highly recommend and "The Runner," a personal fave. ;) And we have "Joy" to watch this weekend. Definitely looking forward to that. Some others we've recently watched are Zoolander 2, The Intern, Daddy's Home, The Martian, Love the Coopers, Burnt, and The Visit. All very entertaining. Have y'all watched any of these? What did you think?
I'll end with a few more garden pics since we just mowed the yard...
Our Netflix queue is getting pretty low, so if you have any movie suggestions for me, let me know in the comments. Y'all have a great day!
