Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

My parents drove up for the night to grill! So fun!

Mint and sparkles on Thursday at work.

Red Lobster for a good friend's birthday!  She loved the birthday song.

Short hair twins!

My gorgeous friend Melissa is getting married!

Patio Is Complete!

We are SO excited that our patio is done!  It is strange that this just used to be dead grass and now we have another entire usable space!

Selecting D&J's was the best decision ever.  They were so professional, friendly, and literally did this in like three days!  Plus they were the cheapest bid we received!  How is that possible?

The first day they prepped everything, the following day they did the pavers and part of the wall.

And completed the next day!  We will absolutely be hiring them again for other projects!!

View from our porch down...

Seating/wall (and the grass that they had to cut up to get the Bobcat down is growing back!  Woohoo!)

We probably won't get much furniture this Summer for down here, but Nate is hoping to get an outdoor sectional for this corner of the patio for his fantasy football parties.

Now we have no excuse to not enjoy the outside!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Family Room Updates

We aren't there yet, but more progress has been made!  The biggest excitement in our family room is that we FINALLY have some privacy and have duettes!  I had these in my condo and loved them and knew we needed them in our family room once we saved enough money.  It took three years but we have them!

The pictures are wretch, but you can sort of see them.  Here they are in the center of the window...

...and how we usually have them in the afternoon/evening...

Not nearly as exciting, (but made a big impact) we moved around some art!  This was in our dining room and the colors weren't working anymore, so we moved it to the family room.  Perfect!  And filled this bare wall!

Sprinks likes it.

In other news, I just noticed I passed 100k views!  Wow!!  Thank you so much for reading!

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

Lots of choreography this week!  The girls loved watching.

New workout kicks!

And my hair is growing!  My multivitamins and 5k mcg of Biotin a day is working!

Taco Bell's guac is actually semi good!  It's no Chipotle but still tasty.

Back to an old favorite - Sinful Colors 24/7

Love weekends with my girls.

Brussels Griffons are cats. :)

Sunday night fun!  We love Rummikub!

Woke up to this little girl sleeping on my head/pillow.  She is the snuggliest thing alive and I love it so much!

Fashion Friday!

This Fashion Friday is mini, but one of my favorites!  I have some of the cutest, most stylish friends (who may or may not kill me) but are just too adorbs to not share!  Here are some of their recent looks - thanks for sharing with me, friends! :)

First, my friend Rachel (one of my maids) sent me options to wear to a country concert last week.  Both outfits were cute, but this was beyond!!  Let's all notice that Rachel is like a Victoria's Secret model; perfection in every way.  She wore a cute zip up corset and denim shorts with cowboy boots! 

Corset: Guess, Shorts: Buckle BKE, Boots: Aldo

My good friend Amber had a bachelorette party to go to last weekend and was wondering what to wear.  Similar to Rach, she dressed up some cute jean shorts!  I finally gave up my hatred of wearing shorts because of my legs and now love them, so I am obsessing over these cute shorts outfits!  Amber has a ROCKING bod (and she has two kids - I know, impossible to believe!) and just worked this outfit! Amber and I also have big dreams of owning a boutique together someday.  Aahhh girls can dream.

Cardigan: TJ Maxx, Necklace:  Stella and Dot, Shorts: Express

Lindsey sent me a pic yesterday of her new necklace that I died over!!  The colors could not be better and it is just whimsical and perfect!  I might have to borrow this puppy from her soon...

Necklace: Zulily

Last but not least, Lindsey took engagement pics of my adorable friend Melissa and her fiancĂ© and they look like a Pinterest pin!! I love how all the pics turned out - they have a total romantic vintage feel.  Great job Linds!  Can't wait to see the rest!

Dress: Wet Seal (I KNOW!!), Heels: DSW

Week In Pictures

Recent happenings through the eyes of my phone camera.

My SIL inspired me to start wearing shorts - found a pair at AE that are probably long enough for super casual days.

 And that giant bruise is from a mosquito!  These things eat me alive every year. :(

We have action happening on our patio!

Breakfast for dinner.

Chim is always posing so cute!  She kills me!

Had been craving yummy parfaits from my Atlanta work trip so created it myself!  Layers of vanilla yogurt, honey, granola and strawberries!

Sprinks loves weekend snuggles.

Planning my Halloween wreath (finished here)!

I need a Hobby Lobby run for ribbon!

My crab pot came!  Bring on the crab boil!
