Amazing Weekend!

Posted Jun 02 2010 12:00am
So I've been a very busy wife this weekend. Luckily I was blessed with a patient husband because I dragged him EVERYWHERE in pursuit of finding the perfect decor items for our cozy nest. We also hiked the Cape Fear River Trail but since it was so unbearably humid we had to turn around after 3 miles. I know, I know, my husband who rocks out on 12 mile rucks with about 80lbs of gear on his back, a 15lb weapon in his hands and in 100 degree weather couldn't complete an 8 mile trail with his wife. In his defense he has to ruck for his job and being the freak he his, he actually loves to ruck. I guess it also helps that he gets paid to endure the suck :)

In addition to all of the shopping and attempting to workout in this disgusting humid weather, this weekend was also packed with going to bbq's, checking out thrift stores, farmer markets, hanging out with our neighbors and their adorable baby and my favorite: refurbishing!

And I now present to you with a few more pics of the progress I've been making...

I took these left over frames that came with this project

I painted them white and filled them with pictures of sailboats the hubs and I saw while on a booze cruise in Key West. I'm OBSESSED with sailboats, I wish I could live on one if possible. It just seems so serene and calms me...

I hung them over the toilet in our guest bathroom and paired them with our new bathroom set I got for super cheap at TJMaxx. The two items together only set us back $8.00!

And since Walmart is my new favorite store I also purchased two brand new throw pillows for our living room. I love the green and blue together!
I also wanted to incorporate some more subtle floral into the mix (not too much for my oh-so-masculine hubby's sake haha!) and to tie in some green to our scheme.

And yes, that is my adorable dog Bandit posing for the camera, he is a huge camera whore and not ashamed of it. Oh, I also found some starfish accessories at Hobby Lobby, went crazy and now I have them all over my house, I love them!

So that's all I'm going to be sharing today. Obviously I still have a lot of work to do but that's for another post another time. But stay tuned, I've got some great thrift/goodwill store finds to share!
