I think we've finally turned the corner on weather up here! Days are regularly getting to 60 and at night the temps aren't dropping the way the were just over a week ago. So you know what that means right?!
Patio time!!!! Patio time at restaurants, and my favorite, at home!!! We have a great deck with more than enough space and I'm ready to sit outside every minute of everyday. Catch up on the giant stack of magazines and perhaps, cough cough, finish one of the bajillion books I want.
Plants galore, just like last year! They make me so happy! I might even try a veggie again....although the squirrels win every time so why try! Sad face, those tomatoes were so promising last year!
We have a great table, and chair set-up....or should I say it was before we covered it up for winter! Our umbrella was eaten by a late summer storm, so I"m on the lookout for a new one. And with the space we have I'd love to add a separate sitting lounging area. A love seat and ottoman perhaps. Or a good old fashioned lounger. My pale bits need to be heated to the core! Our fab neighbors have a huge sectional, and we all pretty much act like the decks are connected so, I'm kinda leaning lounger. Well, at least for today!
Has anyone had any good luck at any retailers lately? I've looked at all the regular places (Target, West Elm, CB2, etc) just always get the biggest sticker shock....esp since we only have half a year to use/enjoy these items! But we need a sun umbrella for sure....here are some of the items I really like right now:
