We had a loooooong week this week, so this afternoon we loaded up Corey’s truck and headed to our favorite drive-thru Mexican place and had a picnic in the bed of his truck. It was the perfect antidote to the cooped-up feelings we’ve been having lately, and it was so good for our souls to get a little change of scenery.
The game room phase one makeover is really coming along and I’ve been sharing lots of peeks on Instagram stories (you can follow along here if you aren’t already!).
In other exciting news, I got word the other day that our patio extension will be happening next week! I don’t know exactly what day yet (depends on if the weather slows down their other jobs), but I’m absolutely beside myself with anticipation…the new backyard tree should be coming in the next week or so as well, so get excited.
ICYMI: This week on the blog
- Last week I shared all of the details of our laundry room tile, from how I tried a new-to-me spacing and leveling system to how I sealed the grout and tile so it’ll stay looking great long term.
- This week, we chatted about the boys’ new playhouse and how we got it painted, sealed, and added a slide to the front. It’s gotten so much use lately and has been a total game-changer in our yard!
- And, of course, who could forget our gorgeous new haint blue back porch ceiling? Can’t stop swooning every time I go out there!
elsewhere on the internet…
- This huge bookcase is the next thing getting set up in the game room and I’m soooo excited to get it all organized with the boys’ toys!
- This gorgeous DIY trellis is one of my favorite outdoor projects I’ve seen so far this year!
- This backyard makes me so happy every time I see it. Incredible.
- I hadn’t ever thought to use outdoor rugs inside but this post might just change my mind.
- We recently decided to try out Imperfect Produce based on a rave review from a friend and we have really been loving it! I find the prices are pretty comparable to my grocery store, and it has us eating way more fresh produce because there’s something inherently more fun and exciting about having it delivered to your door in a cute box.
- I love following the discussion on this post – so fascinating to hear more about a designer’s process and I love reading the comments too!
Have a happy weekend!
