Plant It On Me

It worked! The DIY planters look pretty sweet! I was a little apprehensive because the 'glue' didn't seem nearly strong enough to hold heavy pavers together, but it did the trick. FYI: we decided to use Liquid Nails constuction projects bonder instead of the landscape adhesive because a guy at Home Depot said that it would be stronger and cheaper! Also, we upgraded to the Tuscan paver instead of the basic gray to give it a little depth and appeal.

I had to transfer my plants from my old planters to my new 'custom' {hehe} planters, so fingers crossed that they live through it! Right now it's so hot outside that my geraniums aren't in full bloom, so hopefully they'll pick up here again soon, and I'll get better pics.

Today we also celebrated my Mom's birthday with a trip to Lotawata Creek for lunch and a bowling outing after. Tom did awesome at bowling coming in first, with my Mom coming in second, then David, and rounding out the bottom was me! I had a hard time keeping it in the lane and missing the gutter--oh well! Maw Maw and Paw Paw sat this game out but gave some good coaching advice from the back! : )
