  1. Liz @ It's Great To Be Home says:

    What an amazing trip!! I love that you made sure to do things that took you outside of your comfort zone – those are the memories that you and your husband will laugh about forever!

  2. Kimberly says:

    Your pictures are amazing, and the trip must have been out of this world. Although that fish he caught… scares me just a little. Maybe it's the coloring. Haha! But thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures!

    Richie's always talked about going to Costa Rica, but we never made the trip. Now that I've seen these pics, I think its a must. You two look like you had a great time!

  4. The Brick Cottage says:

    OMG, what fun! I would have LOVED the zip line tour and the mud bath, cold shoewer is too funny. Although, was it weird having all the monkeys aroud? I think *that* would scare me!

    It’s great whenever someone asks me about Costa Rica, best vacation hotels, the real estate investment outlook, or the wellness aspects. I enjoy sharing my experiences in making choices when visiting Costa Rica’s southern Pacific Coast.

  38. power09er says:

    I love looking at all your pictures and you are super inspirational. What is funny is I hink I stayed at the exact hotel as you for my honeymoon back in February 2009 in Tamarindo. We were there for five days and LOVED it, loved that the beaches were never packed, tons to do and loveed the sun. We also hit up Moteverde and Arenal. Did you guys go anywhere else?

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
