O is for {finally} being Outdoors!

Happy Monday everyone!

As you know, this past weekend was full of sun, relaxation, and not much else!  It's nice to wake up on a Monday and feel well-rested and refreshed.  A couple things to re-cap the weekend...

Our deck is FULLY built, but we've still got to stain it and add some finishing touches.  Hubs and I had our very first breakfast on the deck Saturday morning and it was so nice!
Wilson enjoyed it too!
    In anticipation of the deck being finished, we went online and ordered our deck furniture!


    It's Martha Stewart from Home Depot and on a crazy sale, plus we got $100 off by using a gift card...so all in all...only $300 PLUS free shipping!  Not bad, huh?  Hopefully it comes in time for the 4th of July weekend...we're pretty excited about it.

    We also got to go out on the boat...it was Wilson's maiden voyage...I think he did pretty well:



    We also got to visit the nursery again and buy some plants for our front yard




    A woodpecker's nest!

    Our lilac tree...

    Makes for some pretty blooms...and fragrant too!  :)

    Mr. Whiskers keeping an eye on the progress!

    How was your weekend...did you get outdoors?

    2. I'm jealous! It's been raining here all spring/summer long. Have had to cancel my daughter's birthday party TWICE! (It's an outdoors theme... at a park... her favorite place in the world!)
      Thanks for reminding me how depressing it is here.

    3. I love the pic of Wilson lounging! I have been dreading bringing my pup on the boat. I know she loves water and LOVES putting her head out of the window but I just hope she can hold her pee for long enough. Looks like you had a kick butt weekend! Very jealous!

    4. Your boat view is amazing! I am wanting to do a houseboat trip to Tahoe or Lake Powell! Looks like a great weekend. It was just Hot, hot and hot here in SC. But did get some tanning and golf time in!

    19. So what time should we be over for the party to break in the new deck??? (c: That is going to be the best money you ever spent...having a nice and comfy space outdoors is *THE BEST*! My parent's porch has a table almost just like that and I could spend pretty much every minutes out there when we visit! We need pictures of the first get together out there! (c:
