What I'm Loving Wednesday...

Linking up with...

I'm Loving Aerial Yoga
I found the deal on living social and now it’s my new favorite work out. It’s a blast!

I can't wait for this view at a new beach [for us] in Rehoboth, DE.
 I’m less than 2 weeks from a vacation, a much needed vacay.

I'm love reliving my sorority years by helping my cousin get ready for rush this Fall!

All things turquoise! I got some earring like this for Christmas last year and I love them. Serious you can wear them with pretty much everything. It’s such a pretty pop of color for boring work clothes.

Happy Hump Day!

Fresh & Clean in the Summer

It was so nice to wake up on a Monday morning to a fresh and clean house. Thanks to my mama for all of her help. The housework had definitely piled up over a busy couple of weeks. I’m happy to say I’m back on the ball and I am within site of our vacay, t-minus 14 days.

Since I’m back on top of things I’ve created my summer bucket List! I’m so so excited to enjoy summertime! My list looks a little like this….

- Go camping at Grandma’s Farm
- Beach Trip
- Plan our 4th Anniversary Trip
- Lose 5 pounds
- Save a little money!

Ethan Tray Table
- Find end table and picture for living room – almost checked off I ordered one for Ballard Designs this morning
- Start to fill in the back yard flower beds
- Start the bathroom project

- Host our Olympic Party!! So excited, Mama and I started planning this weekend and it’s going to be so fun! I’ll share more news closer to the big day, July 27th.

Coffee Thoughts

Flip Flop Art.

Summer has arrived….thank heavens.

Life just seems a little be easier but a lot busier in the summer, hence the lack of posts.  It’s hard trying to get everything done plus capitalize on catching a few rays and not gaining a million points on summer treats.

I have a very full weekend of ‘to-do’ fingers crossed it all gets accomplished.

Happy 1st Weekend of Summer!

Mid Week Pretty

The rustic look is eye catching:) Everything on this console table just sings in harmony:)

Never under estimate the beauty of mixing texture!

Babies in our Bungalow

No not from us.  Just some new baby birds in the near future.  We have had quite a bit of activity in our hanging ferns on the front porch.  It started with watching a few birds steal the leaves.  Then over the weekend when it started to rain I pulled them down to put out in the rain.  And I found these little guys....

So we will not be watering this fern anytime soon.

Date Night + a little extra

I can't believe it is Monday already!!

We had a great start to the weekend.  The Mr. isn't off on a Friday night too often so it was nice to try a new restaurant on 'restaurant' night.  What I mean by that is....trying a nice/new restaurant on a Monday or Tuesday isn't a good idea.  The 'A' team of a restaurant work on prime nights so the chances of you have a excellent server and the best food is not very likely.  Trust me if you to place that has generally good reviews but you go on a Monday or Tuesday and have a bad experience do yourself a favor and give it one more shot over a weekend.  

Sorry for the lengthy side bar...that being said we gave Miller Union a second shot.  And, it definitely paid off.  We had a great time and we didn't even order entrees.  All of the appetizers sounded so great we opted to order all of those.  Soup of the Day was a Caramelized Onion favorite!

Next stop was something new for us.  An imporv comedy show at the Whole World Improv Theatre.  I'm not going to lie I was a bit very worried this was going to be lame.  But we are trying to expand our horizons and it was super fun!  Relatively inexpensive and I would describe it as watching a practice take of SNL.  I would definitely recommend and you don't need to worry about sitting in the front.  There was not crowd participation just shouting out words.

What we learned....we must have dates more often!  Trying new things makes it feel like we are dating again.

Saturday and Sunday it was back to catching up on house work and squeezing in a few hours in the sun before the rain.  As usual didn't get that much done but I do have some plans for the next few weeks.  Here is a shot of the new additions to the front porch.

Love our new mail box!  Thanks Mama.  
Love the new planter too.  I need to actual plan the fern, it's currently just propped up.

Happy Monday.

Coffee Thoughts

Today it’s iced coffee thoughts! And in my daydreaming I’m drinking it here…

It’s been an interesting few weeks but not really a lot to share. I’ve been too lazy to upload any photos I promise to get back on the ball this weekend. So what’s new with in our bungalow you ask….

We have our new mailbox we got for Christmas up and it's working perfect! I have to say I love it more than I had anticipated.

I’ve was out of town last week for my cousin’s high school graduation! Super fun!
best pic I could snag from facebook

best pic I could take in the very bright sun with a phone....
Plus I also got to spend one day at the beach with my little bro.

Hendrix has a new sleeping routine…I wake up and he has his head on the pillow I toss off the bed every night. I wish I had a picture but he wakes up startled before I can get snap a shot.

The Mr. and I have a premeditated and totally planned date night! It is a first in a long wild and I crazy excited not to have that usual evening conversation of ‘what do you want to do?’ and then ‘I don’t know what do you want to do?’ back and forth. It’s a great feeling we need to do this more often!

I have a few projects to finished up and start this weekend. I will be a weekend filled with cleaning, catching up, and house work....wooohooo!  Have a great weekend!
