Paying to have your house power washed when you’re on a tight budget can be a lot. Try renting a power washer and DIY power washing!
We spent this entire weekend working our butts off getting the house ready for the party. I planted some new flowers in the front yard, dug up a few other plants and moved them elsewhere, painted the front porch and got started on removing the monkey grass in the backyard. To say that I am incredibly tired and sore would be the understatement of the year. But boy does it feel good to have things marked off my list! Our sweet neighbor lent us his power washer, which saved us over $100 in rental fees or paying for a service! DIY power washing is definitely the way to go! Jesse worked on that all weekend last weekend while I went with my mom to buy a few things for the party, including invitation supplies, more on those next week. It’s AMAZING how clean you can get your house by just spraying it with high-powered water! It also embarrasses the crap out of me how dirty our house actually was. Our concrete patio was even more embarrassing than the vinyl siding. Yuck! Now that everything is all clean it’s time to make it pretty! This weekend was my turn to work my butt off in the yard. I spent 5+ hours in the yard this weekend planting flowers, moving some stones around that didn’t make sense, and pulling up monkey grass. Death to all monkey grass everywhere! But more updates on all of that next week!
How was your weekend? Did anyone celebrate Cinco de Mayo? We went out with some of our friends to our fave Mexican restaurant and drank Dos Equis and tequila.
