Spring fever hit! No, truth be told I was procrastinating on doing real work and decided to spend the day outside instead.

We have two levels to our deck. I love to eat outside, but never want to carry all the food, drinks and kids downstairs where the table is. So I used all my muscles and carried the table upstairs to the top deck and put the chairs I had up there on the bottom level. This is what it looked like when I got the table up there…

After a quick run to Garden Ridge for buy one get one half off patio cushions…

Another before shot as I was moving old worn out furniture.


The white flowers are $3.99 fake ones I found at Garden Ridge. Look real don’t they? I like to mix in some real plants with fake, because it never fails… that I forget to water them and they die. Eventually I will add more real ones, but for now these will do just fine.

I found this bamboo rug for $19. I needed it big time because our deck’s stain comes right off on your feet! Bad when you have little kids and white carpet!

So now we’ve been eating outside every night! Don’t know why I didn’t move things around years ago? A few nights ago we pretended we were on vacation. I was sitting outside in Italy, my son was at Lego Land, my daughter was in Paris and husband in Mexico on the beach (all of this according to my son)! ha. I’m glad we have good imaginations because it will be a while before we make it to any of those places:-) At least now I’m happy to have a nice place to pretend.

Have you completed any new spring projects? Please leave a comment and let me know what you’ve been up to. Add a link if you did a post about it.
