Front Porch Sittin'

What a weekend! Was it hot where you were? Each day this weekend hit 100 degrees but that didn't stop me and the "fancee" from having an extremely productive weekend. Friday and Saturday night, once it cooled off just a tad, we headed out and played an hour or so of tennis. We're both learning, but it was really fun! I definitely saw some improvement in both of us by the end of the weekend.

Saturday was all about home improvement, which I love. Christopher had already done some things on the "Honey-do list" earlier in the week, and I'm feeling more and more at home with each passing day. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Cook-Out {yay! Thanks for listening to my emails and coming to Statesboro!} before we headed to the University Store on campus to pick up a few alumni goodies. Then we headed to my favorite place ever--Walker Boutique.

This amazing pharmacy turned boutique has the most beautiful home goods, clothing, and jewelry {lots of which is handmade by Mrs. Devra Walker herself!} you'll find anywhere. We will definitely be registering there when that time comes. Anyways, I was able to pick up a beautiful wooden 'D' initial to use as my summer wreath for the front door. After trips to Wal-Mart, Lowes, and Hobby Lobby, I secured the ultimate in summer decor--an American Flag--some Adirondack style chairs, and a cutesy table on sale at Hob Lob for only $16. I was so excited to get them on the front porch along with a lamp, and of course the bug repellent lantern! I'm loving how it turned out; what do you think?

  1. Your porch looks so pretty. :) Your mini-plantation is coming right along. :)

  2. Oh I like that! Mini plantation!!! Xoxoxo

  3. The porch looks fantastic! So welcoming, you just want to go up and sip some lemonade or iced tea. Quick question... Is the lamp a regular plug in lamp or is it the DIY lamp from Pinterest with the solar light inside?
    Enjoy the front porch and have fun with the tennis! I love that you and Christopher are learning together!

    1. It's just a regular lamp I thrifted--two coats of paint, a gifted shade, and an energy saving bulb! Nothing fancy.
