Bamboo Blinds

I had this post all written up and never posted it, oops! :) We installed bamboo shades in our living and dining room a few months ago. These are from Overstock! Our living room is a lot of tone-on-tone gray on gray, so I like to add some texture in where I can.

Happy Tuesday friends!

Our Balcony

With all the rain we've had lately, it's a miracle I'm able to share pictures of this space at all! Yesterday the rain finally cleared up a bit, and I got our upstairs porch put together. It's the balcony right off of our guest room, and it sat sad and empty. I always pictured having coffee out here, and eventually turning the guest room into my office with a daybed or something to that effect.

Evans refers to it at the princess porch. I think it's because all the Disney movies, the castles have some sort of balcony. She's too funny.

And if I'm being honest, we'll have to install a ceiling fan to enjoy this space once full on summer heat hits. 

Famously hot Columbia and all :)

Spring Break & Life Lately

Spring break was last week, here's a little recap. Also known as the photo dump and what we've been up to the past couple weeks, rolled into one post :)

At the last minute, we decided to stay home for Easter due to the stomach bug. Boooo. By Easter Sunday, everyone felt great, so we hosted Easter lunch last minute after church. My parents and Hubs' came, along with Hubs' grandmama Boofie. We ate too much, but tried to walk it off with a stroll down to the lake and the playground with the kiddos.

The kids had egg hunts at church and loved it! 

Our Easter table

Hubs and I both took off work for spring break since the kids would be at home. It was AWESOME! Monday we decided to hire a babysitter. The weather was beautiful and we were itching to take the boat out just the adults. We spent almost 3 hours cruising around. I got sunburned. Worth it.

We took the girls and Papa and Dma out on Tuesday, and ended up having dinner at Liberty and watching the sunset. I cannot wait for summer!!! 

Around our house we hung artwork 

Finish painting the stair railings

Replaced the dining room rug

We had nice weather again on Friday... so we went on the lake again. Have to take advantage of the nice days when they pop up! Our friends Holly and Judy were in town, so they came and brought baby Landry (Hubs' goddaughter). We love this family so much!

The week flew by, as they always do. Back to the grind today!
