Trendy Mayhem!

Hope y'all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!!! Ours was packed full of family visiting, celebration, and DECK WEEKEND 2008!!! oh yes...the deck is almost done!
So because of the holiday yesterday, and all the pics I wanted to share, I am combinging Monday Mayhem and Trendy Tuesday into one day...Trendy Mayhem! (It makes more sense than Mayhem Trendy).

So, to start things off, here are some wonderful pics from the weekend:
the fam celebrating mom and dad's 54th birthday! they don't look 54, do they? pictured here we have my hubby, myself, my sis, and the birthday kids!

ahhh, the free chocolate birthday cake! they are only 1 week apart in age...my mom is a week older :)

Now, onto the deck!

ahhh, these are the faces of the happy new owners of a wonderful back porch deck :)

and of course, Trendy Tuesday!!!! I saw this in a magazine, and being that zack and i are prone to spill anything at any moment on ourselves, this thing is perfect for us:

you add this in with your wash, and your clothes come out as a stain blocker! it protects clothing from allowing anything to soak in and stain the material. its hypoallergenic, and it doesn't even do anything to the texture of your fabric, so you won't even know its on there! until you spill your grape juice down the front of your white blouse, and it beads up and rolls off :)

Oh. I need to find some blox pronto. Already today, I have temper paint, glue, and juice from a juice box on the front of my shirt. I think the pre-schoolers in my class get more on me than they do on themselves.

The deck looks great!

The deck is beautiful. Did you finish it in one weekend (I mean the construction, not destruction)?

Love the deck - I don't know what we would do without ours. We use it as much as possible even though it isn't in the best shape. There is nothing like cooking dinner on the grill and enjoying it outside with a glass of wine... mmm... Love those evenings!

Oh man! What a great deck! When I was in highschool, my dad decided that one christmas break would be a deck building break. It wasn't really my favorite break, LOL. He kept calling it "family bonding" which I guess it sort of was, but more like family arguing over how straight and level the deck needed to be. LOL.

FUN celebration...speck so! What no pics of Raspberry Italian Cream Soda!? My fav! It WAS so very fun!

The deck is so very incredibly AWESOME!!! The bench seating reminds me of the G's deck on Persimmon Place. All you are missing is a couple of HUGE trees growing out through the deck!

You and Zack look so happy and in LOVE! Oh, how I wish you had included the "dog security" photo or did Fez say, "NO!"?

The Blox...sounds like a terrific stocking stuffer idea! Oh, I've said too much! Love, mom oxoxoxo

The deck looks great! We would love to have one! I'm so jealous!
The big question is how well did you guys get along during this process? Was it stressful!?! It seems like all of our household improvements have been filled with stress! :)
