Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying some down time this weekend. I’m so grateful for this special time to spend with my family and remember and honor those who have died while serving our country. I bought this flag about a year ago and finally installed it so that I could put it up this weekend. Seeing it every time I pull up to our house makes me feel so proud and grateful for the people who have served and continue to serve our country. I always feel that way but I’m loving the constant reminder.
Today was the first day in a long time that we didn’t have much going on. It was also the first time we’ve had sun this week! It was such a nice low key family day. We watched movies and swam in the pool (I think Kole could use one more ball in that hot tub..) and went on a drive and had milkshakes and I did a little organizing. I mean really.. does it get any better than that? :)
I was picking up the kitchen at one point and walked into the family room and saw this fun scene. Patriotic decor by Kole. I figured we could all gain a few take aways from this look to use for the 4th of July. You’ll definitely want to pin this and refer to it often. My couch has never looked so festive and inviting. Ha. ;) I love that boy.
I shared this Feta and Tomato dip recipe on IG stories but wanted to add it here for anyone who missed it! One of my favorite things to take to BBQs and to snack on in the summer. So easy and delicious! You can find the recipe here.
You guys.. I’m giving our playroom a little re-fresh and I’m so excited about it! Making it more of a teen space now that my kids are getting older. I bought this new rug and was going to share it when the room was a little further along, but it’s on sale for such an amazing deal this weekend (less than I bought it for!) so I wanted to share it now in case any of you love it too. It’s the Reflected Diamond rug from West Elm. I debated using it in the playroom, but now I’m thinking I’ll put it in our outdoor area to replace the rug that we’ve had there the past few years. I’m so grateful for all of the rain we’ve had this year but my outdoor rug has seen better days! I’ll share more playroom progress soon.
There are so many fun sales going on this weekend and I’ve rounded up favorites from my go-to stores (like these pillows I’m loving in my living room!). These are all things I have and love or are things I would love to pick up myself! Quite a few of them I already have. :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
