A Fun Evening

Hello everyone!

Last night, my husband and I went to have dinner at my childhood friends house. We haven't seen each other in several years, so it was so exciting to reunite. We had the best time!  She lives in an old neighborhood and just recently had a company revamp her backyard.  That included a wonderful fire pit too!  Come along and I'll show you some of what they had done.

Here we are sitting around the fire pit having wine and snacks before dinner.


From left, Beth (my friend), her husband, my husband.

I told my husband that we MUST have one of these fire pits now.  Isn't it nice?!

Her backyard got a complete makeover because they had a lot of water drainage problems.  They came in and added a lot of river rock to allow the water to flow better through their yard during a rain storm.  This little bridge carries you over one of those sections.



This part of her back yard has grass and big boulders with plants surrounding it.  These pictures don't do it justice.


I forgot to take pictures of the other side of the yard, but she had some trees planted with landscape lighting added.  So pretty!

And here we are together!  We have been friends since we were little bitty. She was even a bridesmaid in my wedding.


(Note:  She wasn't wearing any makeup because she was just getting over having the Shingles rash on her face.  Yikes!) Don't worry, she wasn't contagious. 

Aren't childhood friends the BEST?  Do you still keep in touch with your old friends?

Thanks for stopping by.

There's no friend like an old friend! You're both beautiful!

We are in desperate need of a backyard makeover too. I can relate to the water drainage issues. They did a wonderful job!

Oh, Kelly! How fun to see old friends. I so miss having a fire pit in the backyard. We use a copper bowl now but it's not the same as a real one in the ground. At least where you and I live, we can actually burn fires in our yards. Aren't we lucky. You look super cute and your friend does too....make up or not. :)

How fun Kelly, love seeing old friends, Saturday was my class reunion so I got to see friends from grade school also,
Love the fire pit too!

How pretty her yard is. We have a natural drainage area in the yard filled with rock and we call it the rock river. If we get a huge downpour it sounds like being next to a rushing river. I love it!
