A New Discovery In My Own Backyard

I’m finally ready, and trying, to get back into the swing of things in my personal life, work and here on the blog. Part of the reason things have been so crazy is with the expansion of our work office, which has resulted in long busy and tiring days! Also this weekend we were getting things ready in preparation for my birthday party, and we always love using our giant garage for parties, but it’s full of dirty and dangerous things. To solve this problem we planned on using our under utilized storage shed. backyard shedIt looks so small on the outside, and up until last week I’d never actually been inside the shed. But I was trying to find space for things from the garage, and my extra Christmas decorations and finally remembered that the shed existed! And boy was I surprised when I opened those doors and saw all this space!shedmaximum home storageshed storagestorage shedAs you can see in the pictures, I didn’t waste anytime moving things out of the garage and into the shed! And there’s plenty more that can move, but Jesse wants to have some things left in the garage 😉

Aside from cleaning things up and getting organized, I had a fabulous birthday weekend getting spoiled by my wonderful husband, mostly in the form of food. We ordered in Italian on Wednesday from a local spot we love called Sapori and opened a bottle of wine we’ve been saving for a special occasion.birthday takeoutOn Thursday (which was my actual birthday) my family came over and we had cake and I got a $50 gift card to H&M. And then on Friday it snowed, so I got to leave work early and Jesse made me some chicken parm. while we watched movies and tv all night. birthday snowbirthday dinner2And then of course Saturday night was the birthday party Jesse has been planning for me for a few weeks now. I haven’t had a birthday party since I was like 13, so I was super excited. We had so much fun with our friends and it was such a blast! birthday partyAnd thank you to all of you wonderful bloggy friends of mine for the birthday love over the past week. This was honestly the best birthday I’ve ever had! 🙂

  1. Happy belated birthday – it sounds like you had a wonderful time celebrating 🙂 And woohoo for finding all that extra storage space in the shed!

    PS – I haven’t watched Downton Abbey yet so no spoilers!

  2. Glad your birthday was fabulous! I am in love with that shed. We’re putting one in this spring, I can’t wait to reclaim the garage and maybe even park my car inside.

  3. Wow! That’s one fantastic shed! You’ll have it full in no time! I’m glad you had a great Birthday!!

  4. If I had that wonderful little ‘shed’ in my backyard, I would be putting all the junk in the garage and turning that into a little ‘room getaway’ for me. I would heat it and put in a nice rug, comfortable chair, small refrigerator for my nice bottle of wine. A table for my radio and a lamp and a big lock on the door. Looks like the perfect hide-away to me

  5. Your shed is awesome! We really need something like that. Sounds like a fab weekend and birthday celebration!
