The last couple weeks has been nonstop with entertaining, which has been so much fun. I’m sort of a homebody, so to be able to be social at the comfort of my own home has been wonderful. We’ve been grilling out, mixing drinks, ordering pizzas–different days, different groups of friends and neighbors. Here are a few photos I’ve snapped over the course of three different days when we’ve tidied the area up for friends!
Inno sent me their InnoFlask bluetooth speaker and no matter the day or reason to have friends over, we’ve been using this to play our playlists. I’m not super techy, so I was impressed by the case and design, while all my electronic loving friends appreciated the quality of sound, especially Kyle. Before this, we were dragging speakers and wires outside and now we can just use this no matter where we go.
My friend Liz brought over a couple floral arrangements she put together from a wedding over the weekend, so I placed them on the patio and on my coffee table for the day while we entertained friends.



James & a few patio updates

I live in a quiet neighborhood and my apartment complex is low key with lots of trees and outdoor space that I haven’t quite taken advantage of in the last two summers here. It’s looked like this the last year or so.
This summer, I vowed to spruce it up which included sanding and repainting the rusted out patio table, replacing the tired old plastic chairs with new wooden ones and research on what plants can take direct sun all day. It’s a work in progress, but I’ve found some good deals along the way ($20 outdoor rug from World Market and solar lights on sale at Target.) I’m still looking for more plants and Kyle is starting to grow tomatoes, cucumbers and jalapenos up here. But most importantly, James loves it. We keep the door open so he can wander in and out. I’ll do another, better post of just the patio since I keep finding more things to finish it!
