Went to our friends bbq this weekend and spotted this house that I pretty much wanted to pick up and take home with me. This small town in NJ along the water is still working on rebuilding after damage from Hurricane Sandy. Flood insurance regulations insist that your house must be 14 feet off the ground in order to rebuild. So crazy! I loved everything about this house though - the color is a deep blue and the front porch has not one but two fans. Perfect for sipping cocktails under on hot summer days.
This place below is just so stinking cute. This is the entrance to my friend’s neighbors place and we’ve been watching over the past two years as they rebuilt this two bedroom in Avon-by-the Sea (not Sandy related). Now I want a lattice for my backyard.
Cute restaurants with outdoor seating.
Spending my vacation this week tackling some of these to dos.
Mostly, that means a lot of painting. I’m so ready to have a few less beige walls in this house.
I finally put together a to do list for the house filled with all the things we need to get done and buy, which has all been floating around my head for weeks. It’s not pretty. I saved you from having to scroll through it to get to the more interesting posts on your dash. You’re welcome.
But, if you’d like to see the sheer amount of crap I was hanging onto for over a month, feel free to read on. Feels so great to have it all written out.
Can’t stop, won’t stop.
Our little lounge areas plans which looked like this ….
Now look like this!
I had a field day in Target on Sunday. Target just gets me so well. Cute stuff, easy price tags. Those pillows were on sale for $10 each. I couldn’t get them in the cart fast enough.
I have off all next week to prep for our party and a trip to Ikea is also in the works, so I can pick up that white umbrella above and a few other things I need. (Glamorous vacation, I know.)
