4th decor around the farm and a low boil

June 30, 2015

We are hosting a few friends this weekend for the 4th of July holiday. And since this summer has been about everything slow and easy, we are doing a low boil. If you are a Cajun, then you totally get this. If not, basically we will throw some shrimp, hot sausage, corn cobs, small red potatoes,onions and if we were really lucky to find any... crawfish, into a big pot, season with some Zatarains shrimp and crab boil and let it boil away.  

Guest House Updates- Part 2

June 29, 2015

So it occurred to me while sipping on some frozen fruity drinks at the beach with my mom last week while we were in Florida, that I better get this Coppertone bum in gear and finish the updates that I want to do before she gets here in 4 weeks. I really haven't done enough to share up until today, and even these might appear to be a tad bit lame, but for my mom's sake (and cause I know she is reading this), the updates will happen and be ready for her arrival.

Weekend Wow's- Summer Art, Paper Flowers, DIY ladder for the library

Happy Weekend! 

In a few hours we will be on our way back home (Insert mega boo-boo face)  from a wonderful family vacation in Palm Coast Florida. 

I guess I should have mentioned that we packed it up and headed down south to the beach this past week, but I was afraid that you would have wanted to come with, and as much as I wanted you to be there, sadly there was no room in the car.  Maybe next time. Next week I will share some highlights from one of the best weeks of the year!

While we experienced a couple of stormy hot summer afternoons which is pretty typical, I found some inspiration that I wanted to pass along.

Decorating with the same tray...3 ways

June 23, 2015

It's safe to say, when I love someone, you will know.  It's no secret. You can just tell. 
When I find a good pair of jeans that fit well, I might buy a couple of pairs. Same thing with a good tee shirt.....in some different colors. Same thing with shoes and lip gloss. 

Summer Home Tour 2015

June 18, 2015

Welcome to the bHome Summer Open House. Happy to see you! Today I am sharing the most well used space in the house, the kitchen, along with some snippets of the family room, master bedroom and our outdoor spaces.

I am joining 30 other bloggers this week from the bHome app to share lovely summer inspiration with you. I have all the links at the bottom of my tour as well as some details on how you can enter to win a $200 gift card from bHome and Painted Fox Treasures.

I think my house is starting to act a lot like me since summer break started a month ago. Just kicking back, going with the flow, all with a smile and a carefree spirit.  I act like this for two reasons. Most important, is because I really want to enjoy the little people of this house.  Those little people, that before I know it, will be grown, out of the house and entirely too big and to cool for the slippy slide with mom. insert cry and a sigh
