Outdoor Living

One of our big house projects going on right now (we have a lot of them!) is work on our backyard.  Nick spent the weekend pulling massive bushes out and cutting down trees and soon we'll be re-painting our deck and working on the landscaping.  Things are definitely coming along and I can't wait to spend tons of time out there this summer.  

Last year we picked up an outdoor dining set, but this year it'll be time to really spruce things up.  I've been eyeing lots of fun pieces to make our backyard an outdoor oasis.  After all, we have someone (Nick's) 30th birthday to celebrate out there in July!  My favorite reasonably priced, go-to stores are Pier 1, World Market, and of course, Target.  You can also find some great outdoor goodies at Home Goods - I've been known to stop there on the day they put out their new merchandise to scoop the best stuff up :)  You do what you gotta do!

  2. Love all of this, especially the string lights so pretty! Lack of outdoor space is probably my least favorite thing about living in the city!

  6. Love this inspiration board! String lights are my favorite addition outside. We've been working on our outdoor area too, not exactly the funnest part of home ownership but it's worth it in the end!
