In case you’re wondering, these pictures were not taken in the Sahara Desert. Nope, this is just what a non-watered Phoenix backyard looks like after months and months of triple digit temperatures. There was grass back here at one point, but it gave up.
I think it’s safe to say that it gave up because we gave up watering it. We used to water it, but our water bill has been OVER $150 a month with just normal use and watering the font lawn! So, we decided to prioritize and save ourselves some dough by watering the front yard, but skipping the back area that’s surrounded by 6ft brick walls and is usually never seen by anyone other than us… and I guess all of you… 🙂
All of this to say, if you live in an area where the very idea of “watering your grass” is comical, thank your lucky stars today. You could live at my house 😉

P.S. If I was going to go back to school, I would TOTALLY wear this outfit. Super quick and comfy with a few touches of fun, it’s pretty much perfect for sitting through a lecture or working in the lab 😉
