Recessionista Strikes Again

My colleague recently took advantage of the real estate market and last week she closed on her first home!
The boxes are unpacked.
The rooms have been painted.
Next task: the yard.

As she begins to tell me what needs to be done, my "recessionista light bulb" lights up!

go get a cheap pair of heels and go for a walk around the yard - no need to pay someone to aerate the grass, when you can do it yourself with a pair of heels and some good wine!

Better yet, have a wine party and invite her best buds to wear THEIR heels and come on over to help out!

What time should we be over? I have plenty of heels I don't mind ruining in mud for some wine & camaraderie!

Awesome. Especially when thinking that Gary typically handles all things lawn. The neighbors will love this!

Hey! I supply the wine, everyone is welcome to come here and do the same!

I am laughing at the image of Derek's face as he pulls in the drive and I'm prancing around the lawn drunk in my heels with my wine cube muttering "you're welcome." :D

Great idea!

I aereated the grounds of NCSU last weekend at an outdoor wedding. Totally a good idea. Instead of my hubby renting the machine, we can both put on a pair of my heels and do it for free.
