We’ve been having friends and family over more and more since we moved here, and we also volunteered to take on Easter dinner for the first time this year! YIKES! It’s kinda new for me, but I’m getting the hang of it and LOVING all of the company. Byron LOVES to be hospitable. He worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years, so it’s just in his blood. With his cooking skills, and my love for creating the ambience, it’s really a fun experience! We’ve been loving it. Since we’ve been having lots of company over, and the weather is just beautiful, we decided to invest in outdoor furniture. We have a local outdoor patio furniture location called Pacific Patio. They have beautiful furniture that is completely weather proof. The umbrellas, table, and wicker seating area that we chose are all from that store. The chairs the table I ordered from Overstock.com. Chairs are SUPER expensive!! Holy MOLY! I just didn’t want to spend over $300 per chair. I got these for a fraction of the cost, and I think they look GREAT!
Putting flowers everywhere both indoors and out just makes everything that much more beautiful. I’ve been using flowers from my garden, so it’s a great way to prune my rose bush, and beautify my home. I was in a bit of a rush, so I forgot to pick off the leaves inside the one outside.
My friend Carly came over the other night with her family for taco night, and they brought me this beautiful succulent arrangement. Carly has the most inspiring blog that I’ve been following for years.. I’ve known her from church, and she actually owned a successful fashion boutique store when she was 19 years old, and I remember looking up to her and admiring her entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. She finds the coolest designer handbags at garage sales for like $1. Like… she’s just COOL! Amazing mother of 4, and her husband does Voice overs for American idol and The History channel. When you hear, “Tonight, on America Idol,” that’s him!! haha Anyway, Oliver has a blast with the four kids, and it’s just too much fun!
I love that the outdoor area is just becoming more and more inviting. It’s making us want to entertain more and more!
I ‘m gonna transfer this over to a larger pot as instructed by Carly. I’m also gonna add some more landscaping outside. I’m thinking of something with lavender, maybe sage.. I dunno. I have to run to the nursery this week to check out what’s available. I will keep you posted.
hope you enjoyed this quick post,
