Fire-y Love

Friday’s 100 posts posted post (haha sorry I was having fun seeing how many times I could type that and still have it make sense) knocked me out… I didn’t have the energy to post again until wonderful, sweet Walker gave me a great reason!

Okay… here is where the bragging begins. I have the most amazing, thoughtful, kindhearted, creative man in the whole world! I got home from a very long, stressful day at work last night (one of many lately) and there was a great big box in our living room! Walker told me it was a present for me and guess what it was?!

A FIRE PIT!!!

Eeeeee! We have been talking about getting one for ages (I mentioned it as one of my 25 projects for future-blog on Friday) but have never taken the plunge. So Walker decided to surprise me with one! How sweet is that!? :)

Needless to say, you can imagine where we spent the rest of the evening.  Yes, right here:Naturally, I wanted to also get a lovely picture of Bo enjoying the new addition.  However, the second I turned the camera at him, he immediately buried his snout in the grass to hide from me. Walker laughed and I was disappointed.  But I took a picture anyway:He thinks he’s so sly, hiding his cute little face in the grass. All it took was for someone to walk by the gate and he forgot about my camera.  So I did manage to get a better picture.So that was my lovely Tuesday night surprise! The best part of the fire pit?  It comes with a grill rack!! So we have big plans to grill up a couple steaks this weekend! Yippeeee! :)

    Okay, seriously. Walker needs to have a talk with Travis or he needs to write a book called, “Being the Perfect Man” :P

    Awesome fire pit! So jealous right now.

    How cool! That looks like so much fun! My parents bought a fire pit last year for their home and they got a lot of great use out of it — I can’t wait until they fire it up again this year! Enjoy!! :-)

    awesome! I so want one of those! Walker is awesome to help you complete one of your 25 to-do list tasks :)

    So funny that Bo tries to hide from the camera, hehe!
