Visiting the Newlyweds

Detroit Metro to Midway is such a quick flight that the flight attendants barely have enough time to serve and collect the complimentary  beverages.  I left one adventure and began another before I had time to finish my Coke.

The newlyweds met me at the bottom of the escalator and enveloped me in hugs.

Did I mind going to the mall so that they could return some duplicate wedding gifts and spend some of the cash and gift cards they'd received? Not at all... so off we went to Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn, where pillows were selected
and tested
before they took me to their new home.
They are delightfully house-proud.
The prior owners were full of loud parties and drunken teens.
The neighbors are delighted to have the kids instead.

Fall in the Midwest is much more colorful than that which arrives in the desert Southwest.  
These trees and bushes
 were at the end of the parking lot at Garden Ridge......
which was not the garden supply store we had supposed.
The lack of exterior greenery should have given us a clue, but in we went, anyway.

There were pinwheels
 and palm trees
and giant snowmen.
There were pink chairs
 and hassocks
 and furniture of all colors
and descriptions..... and some that were just indescribable.
 Yes, it's a chair.  
It also comes in leopard if zebra isn't your thing.
And then there was this:
He's a toilet paper holder.
We laughed all the way to the check out counter.

Bulbs were purchased
and planted
 as random roots were clipped
and stray marbles were recovered from the soil
It was a perfect afternoon.

  1. Gosh, there is nothing like being newly married and having a new home. Such an exciting time in one's life. They look so cute outside their new house.

    Looks like Little Cuter has inherited her mom's green thumb. ;)

    Love the pixs of the plants/bushes/trees. I love fall. It's my favorite time of year. I love all of the colors.

    Hope you had a great time.

    Happy Monday.

  2. I love to see them so happy! Isn't it a cute house? I am glad to see that Little Cuter got the rest of the Halloween decorations up. It was raining almost the entire weekend that we were there. And tulips planted! Awesome!
