Landscaping and Hometown Craziness

The landscape designer came over again yesterday to show us the plans she made for our front yard and back yard. Doug and I are both really excited with what she came up with! Hopefully we'll be able to start on the front yard this weekend. Yesterday was beautiful, I think the news said it hit 81 degrees! But, it's supposed to be in the 40's and 50's for the next few days again, and it's super windy outside right now. Bummer! I guess we'll have to see... And we got a bid on how much it will be to have someone come and install big rocks behind our yard to use as a retaining wall, and then some on the inside of the back yard too, to create two levels back there. We kind of have to do that with the shape of our yard back there. That will be pretty pricey, but I think we'll be happy with it in the long run.
Are any of you following The Bachelor: London Calling right now? Well I was talking to my sister, Eliza, on the phone during the first episode, and she said there was a girl from our hometown on there. How crazy is that?! I grew up in Loveland, Colorado, and there's a girl named Noelle that's on the show from there. Neither of us know her, but how funny is that to see someone from a small(-ish) town that you're from on a reality show? What's even more crazy is that she's made it to the final four, and next Monday, the bachelor will be visiting each of their hometowns! It looks like she lived up the canyon of Loveland, and not in the neighborhoods. Don't worry, Loveland really isn't that country. So, if you happen to catch The Bachelor next Monday, you'll see my hometown on there. Crazy!

I'll watch next monday, hopefully it won't be as bad as Doug has described, but it sounds like a big crap hole.
