not shag but kinda has a 70's vibe to it

our new rug for the dining room resembles something I think would have been found in the 70's. but I love it. it adds so much color! The lighting makes it a lot more yellow then it is. 

this is more like the actual color of the rug - blue loves it when we get new rugs. he rolls around them so that it smells like him and not like a new rug. 

next on our list for this room is new curtains - we are thinking something with orange and teal. I am hoping mom and I can go shopping next week for some fabric. and then of course we are just waiting for our furniture to come from mom and dad's. we will have it in 2 weeks!!!!!

yard work again

while mark and matt worked on trimming the trees betty and I (mainly betty) decided to get the bamboo cut down - this is what we ended with. Its amazing how much space it took up and how much more open the back yard feels. 

betty also decided to conquer some of the banana trees we had and we found a cut little aloe vera plant growing in the middle of them.
