Gettin’ Dirty With My Husband…

June 14, 2011

You should be ashamed of yourself for just clicking on that title πŸ˜‰ 
It really isn’t as exciting as it sounds, unless you like playing with dirt…
and if that is the case, than this is uber exciting. 
Some of you may recall my PMS induced post written over Memorial Day Weekend?
Well, for reasons listed in the sentence above, husband and I had to find a different way to have some “fun” over the holiday weekend.
{Have I mentioned yet that my husband is probably yelling at me or rolling his eyes in a major way at everything I have typed so far? Wimp}.
So what did we decide to do?
Build a firepit, that’s what.
Guess you can say all that HGTV we watch is finally paying off.
So, we made our way to Menards and after much excitement, came home with this:
{No not just a car full of smiles…} What I more so meant was this:
Which led to me having to do a whole lot of this:
{Yes, that is a true face I made not just for the camera and I meant every bit of it}
Thankfully my arm muscles grew triple in size that night.
My hands on the other hand did not appreciate what I put them through.
While I did the above, my blue eyed bandit was in the garage lookin’ fine as ever assembling the little ole’ ring that goes in the middle of the pit.
And I’m drooling…
After the blood, sweat, and tears {Okay maybe just sweat}, my manly man got to town and performed the following:
I of course offered much moral support while snapping pictures.
Finally, all of the hard work led to wa-la:
Our brand spankin’ new relaxing ring of fire.
…and some serious Johnny Cash tunes.
All in all, it was a fun activity and I love knowing that we did it together πŸ™‚
No, but seriously the real point of this post is to let you know that if you would like one in your backyard we will kindly do it for you.
$300 an hour plus drinks are expected {skinny girl margaritas please?}
We’ll only charge $200 πŸ˜‰
I’m kidding kiddos..calm down.
I really have no desire to bust my booty in your yard..unless of course the margaritas will be present, in which case I may consider.
Real point of the post:
Go do something fun {and dirty} with your lover.
You may surprise yourself what the two of you are capable of when you combine forces.
Happy digging πŸ™‚
