Mowing the Manna

This post is an apology to all of you who live in our town and drive by our super cute house everyday. I can hear your thoughts of, "Are the Comerford's ever going to mow the grass?!" Yes! I promise we are! Over the 2 week move I noticed that we have a crazy amount of clover in our backyard and patches of it in the front yard. This is a whole new ball game for me because we had an amazing yard in Atlanta. Correction, we inherited an amazing yard in Atlanta and it was just easy to maintain. During the move we discussed weed and feed and all of that. However, we needed to get all of our stuff inside before we could work on the outside and the yard wasn't that bad. WELL, it is now! I mentioned to hunky hubby some time around last Wednesday that we NEED to get the weed and feed and the yard really needs to be cut soon. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Babe, we really need to get some weed and feed or whatever that stuff is you put on the grass to make it pretty.

Hubby: What are these "weeds" you keep talking about?

(Mind you, our backyard looks like a wildflower meadow right now)

Me: The clover! Look at it, it's everywhere! (Slight exaggeration, but it usually gets the job done)

Hubby - As he gasps in shock: Clover is not weeds it is Manna from Heaven! Our cows thrive off of clover!

Me: Unless you plan on bringing a cow over here or picking it all by hand to take to your cows, you need to get on the lawnmower.

Then we left to go out of town for a wedding. When we got home Sunday the yard was out of control. Ben has been trying to cut it everyday this week but it keeps raining and it's driving me nuts! I want to put a sign in the front yard that reads "Please excuse our Manna. We will cut it before it reaches Heaven."

Amelia Activity: I can now feel her move everyday. It is so cool. I am not a big caffeine drinker at all, but I have one drink a day just to get her going. It's just a sweet little connection. I'm definitely not ready to share her with y'all yet!

I have nothing to do this weekend so I promise to post interior pictures and maybe a shot of the bumpette.
