Breaking Branches & (Almost) Feet

A couple weekends ago we shook up our trees and brought down some branches.

Breaking Branches & (Almost) Feet

That day we didn’t have any energy left to saw them into pieces and bundle them for green waste pickup, so we dragged them into our backyard to await their fate.

Well a week ago we finally managed to get out there and saw a bunch of it up. Evan was on chainsaw duty and I took care of smaller branches.


And as we were chipping away at our pile we realized that some of the big pieces were really cool and could be used for potential house decor, and some of the thin branches could be used for potential wedding decor.

So we collected a bunch of big branches and we’re still in the process of collecting enough little ones (we might need TONS).


As usually I’m in PJs of course #sorrynotsorry.

Not telling you exactly what’s up our sleeves yet, but we did crank out one of the projects this weekend!

But onto the other part of our title. See the very tall crutch in the background of the picture above? That belongs to Evan. He got a 600 pound motor dropped on his foot a few days ago and was VERY lucky that it somehow was not broken. The doctors were shocked that it wasn’t just smashed to pieces after he told them what happened. But it is crazy swollen and I’m trying to get him to stay off it while it heals, but he’s a hard one to keep still!


That is the happiest looking picture of someone with a smashed foot ever. Love my love, always positive. But needless to say, we probably won’t be tackling any crazy house projects that require physical labor on his part for a while until that foot is healed up. Wishing my favorite person a speedy recovery! <3

    600 lbs.? I can’t even imagine! I hope Evan’s foot heals quickly!
    Looking forward to some DIY twig and branch awesomeness, too. :)

    Ouch! Hope he gets to feeling better! I know it is hard but keep him off it.

    Hope so too! He is a stubborn one but I’m trying!

    […] you guys know, we had a lot of leftover branches after our tree trimming and we decided to hold onto them for a while in case we came up with any cool house/wedding decor we could use them […]
