The pool's done! The kids are already swimming, but it takes a lot hotter whether to get me in the pool. The rest of the yard is still a disaster, resembling not much more than a giant dirt pit. There's plenty of work to do, which we will mainly be doing ourselves, but until we can get the landscaping completed, we'll be buying some astro-turf tomorrow to make a pathway to the back door. Wet foot prints all over the floor I can deal with, but wet muddy foot prints, not so much.decomposed granite? We have experience laying our own sprinklers and lighting, but have never attempted sod. We've decided to lay DG in the patio area and as a pathway to the pool area, but I've heard it can be a lot of work. Is it worth the money we'll save, or will we want to shoot ourselves?
I didn't write an outfit post this week because well, nothing really to exciting to report. I've lived in 2 outfits all week, the maxi dress and gray shrug combo you see above Mon-Tues, and the striped navy maxi dress and navy cardi you see below. It's a comfy but put together look that I don't really have to put too much thought into. I'm sporting a side braid below, which is my new favorite easy-breasy look. My mission is to learn to do a french and fishtail braid.
In other news, I used the colors from the latest OPI collection, Pirates of the Caribbean. The color on the left is called Skull & Glossbones and is the perfect shade of taupe/gray. I painted my toes with this one. The color on the right is called Mermaid Tears and I used that for my fingers. It's a little Katy Perry Teenage Dream for me, but since my polish only lasts 2-3 days, it's not the biggest commitment.
Annie turned it on to me. Girl's got great taste in books, and she does a monthly reading list recap so I pretty much just follow her recs now :) It's the perfect easy read that's exciting enough to grab and hold onto your attention, but written in an uncomplicated way so as not to require the concentration of meta-physics. They're making a movie based on the series and Kim shared the cast info with me. I'm calling it right now, ladies, we have a new Twilight on our hands.
your advice on the pots and pans by the way! So I'm pretty sure I'm sticking with All Clad, but now I just need to decide if I should suck it up and get the set, or buy a couple of pieces at a time. Tough decisions I know, isn't life excruciating sometimes (insert sarcasm). After watching this video, I know how lucky and ridiculously pampered I am sometimes. Katie said it best, we take so much for granted sometimes.
And on that note, have a great weekend guys. Off to take my boy to the park!
