We’ve been enjoying more and more patio time this week…and I don’t hate it. I don’t think these two snackers do either…
I’ve been searching for an outdoor rug for the patio since we moved into our house almost 2 years ago. So when I found this beauty for less than $80, I was basically jumping up and down in the middle of Sam’s. I just think it makes this space so cozy and warm. Now all we need are some flowers and accessories…and I’ll never want to leave.
Chris got home early from a work trip on Wednesday, so we took advantage of the extra time and went on a little adventure at a nearby nature park. This place is so beautiful…and it’s only 5 minutes from us! It also brought back some memories from my grade school fieldtrip days. I tried to get Chris to do a trust fall with me, but he wasn’t interested 😉
We also did a little geocaching and had much better luck this time (thanks to the $10 app upgrade)! It was just nice to spend the afternoon getting fresh air and exploring with my favorite people.
On my latest Target run (which if you follow me on Instagram, you know it ended with a lunatic toddler throwing his own shoes), I came away with some new wardrobe staples. Boyfriend crops (obsessed!), white jean leggings (I can’t bring myself to call them jeggings), and a pretty little beaded tassel necklace that I couldn’t pass up. I’m trying really hard to only buy things that are versatile this spring and summer…and I think I’m on the right track. Spoiler alert: I’ll probably be pairing the white jeans with flip flops instead of high heels… 😉
I pretty much want to marry this bathroom.
Cheers to a fabulous Friday…and a wonderful weekend!
Your patio looks fabulous! The string of lights make it so fun, too.
I love that necklace! Enjoy your weekend!
I saw those necklaces last time I was there. I definitely need to grab one next trip!!!

Loving your patio, friend! I could live out there. Cute little fam trip to the Nature Park! And I’m loving those white jean leggings. I can’t say jeggings either, gross. Happy FRIDAY!! XO
Um … I want to marry that bathroom AND your porch! Heavenly!

Sounds like we need to visit Ernie Miller for our own little geocaching one of these days!! Your pictures are gorg! And your porch sort of makes me want to screen in ours! Except that we don’t have the cozy fireplace like you. Happy weekend, friend!

What a gorgeous patio! I would have never thought to look at Sams! Popped over from the link up.
Your porch is just awesome. I love that little oasis for you guys. I’m really looking forward to using our porch, and our yard more often. However, we have more snow today, haha. Such a weird way to start spring. Love your Target finds too! Those white jean leggings are perfect for the summer.

Oh I am swooning over your porch; it is perfection! I have been searching for a perfect outdoor rug, since our current one is actually two boring ones from Costco. No design. And we plan on hanging up some lights this weekend!

Your patio looks like a nice place to hang out! Stopping in from Friday Favorites!
I LOVE your patio. And your new rug is awesome. Great price. I am looking for a cute rug for our sunroom. I should check Sam’s. You found some goodies at Target! Love the necklace.
Your patio is amazing…and that bathroom?! Perfection!! And thanks for adding three things to my target cart! Jean leggings…I laugh when I put Louise in her “jeggings!”
Love the porch!! I really like Ernie Miller too. We’re a bit farther from there than you are. And I love geocaching! I don’t recall there being any there – good to know!
Love that bathroom AND your porch!! Both lovely! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
That rug is awesome! I would have happy danced in the middle of Sam’s too!

Oh, I wish a had a cozy patio area like that! So lovely!
Ok, such a random question… but was your house a custom build or was it a developer? If t was a developer, can you share who it was??
Stephanie Spring says
Your patio is so cozy! It looks great! 🙂
Your outdoor space has me swooning.
We did a little more geocaching this weekend, too! However, I’m pretty sure I need to just bite the bullet and go for the full upgrade. And that nature park/center is one I’ve never been to! I’m thinking it’s going to make it on our list of things to do while we’re home this summer.
Also – I was thisclose to snagging those white jean leggings on my last Target run. But, I did snag those boyfriend jeans you suggested, my new pant staple.
love this little space of yours! I am pretty much sold on ANY rug under $100 so that was a great find 😉
