    Thank you for the fun look at a day in the life. Your “In Her Shoes” posts are such a great idea. I always find it fascinating to see what other people do with their time.

    I really like the the tops of the chair (kindof look like bee hives) and can’t wait to see what you do with it. I also have extra shutters sitting around and thought of making a screen for the side of our porch.

    Love it! I love the bricks outside shaped into a circle. Very pretty idea! I’m glad that you took part in your neighborhood cleanup. It’s always nice to see nice yards when you’re out walking.

    I loved reading that! What a fun glimpse into your day, Beth. If I lived close to that river, I’m certain I would never get anything accomplished. It’s gorgeous!

    I don’t think there’s anything sexier than that pic of your husband reading to your boys. I’m impressed. I have 2 boys as well and I got tired just reading through that. I never get that much done in a day.

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.

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

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 […]
