Happy Friday! I hope you had a good week! I’m so grateful for the long weekend ahead. We are limping across the finish line this school year. We still have a week and a half left and without this little break I don’t know if we would make it. Ha. We need this long weekend to finish up end of school projects and rest from the craziness! I also just love Memorial Day. Such a special time to remember and honor those who have served our country. I found these pics from Memorial Day weekend in 2013 and I remember my kids at that stage like it was 20 minutes ago. This summer we will be doing some traveling to visit college options for Ellie. One more year with her home. Pass the tissues.. I seriously can’t believe it!
The sales are SO good this weekend and I’ve already ordered a couple of big items I’ve been patiently waiting to buy. 20% off at Mcgee & Co and I’m so excited about this Eileen coffee table! It has been on my wishlist for a while. I’ve been wanting a new coffee table for our family room for a couple of years and knew this was “the one” the second I saw it on-line. I always wait for sales to purchase Mcgee & Co items because they are pricey, but I will say that everything I’ve ordered from them has become a favorite. Here are a few other Mcgee favorites that I own and love..
My mudroom runner. I still love this so much. My dress was from the Nordstrom sale last year.. another great summer sale to look forward to!
The rug in our playroom is another favorite that has held up beautifully! I wish I had more progress to share in this space but it looks pretty much the same. I need to prioritize it but there are always so many other things on my to-do list! Most of the other items in this space are also on sale!
My white terracotta jars are back in stock and I know these won’t last long so don’t wait if you want them! I get asked about them all the time and they have been out of stock. They come in two sizes – tall and short – and are up on the shelf over my range in this picture holding my favorite faux peonies.
This is the short jar holding eucalyptus on my gold tray. Some of my decor I rotate but these jars are always on display somewhere! They are great basics that are easy to style and always look good.
Of course you all remember my stetson lamps! LOVE them.
Thank you for helping me find them a permanent home. :)
Below are other favorites from McGee & Co! I have and love most of these items and along with the coffee table I also ordered that cute clock!
Remember my stunning trees from Home Depot? WOW. They were so gorgeous for about a month!
Now they’ve lost their blossoms and aren’t doing quite so hot. The front is ok.. the backside of them (not getting any sun) is dying. Plus they are SO high maintenance! I’ve had to water them every day to keep them alive and the water is staining my flagstone. Aside from that I’ve been dealing with such a mess on my porch every day! I kept sweeping the dirt and then the next day dirt and leaves were all over my rug. I finally got to the bottom of what was causing the mess and couldn’t believe it!
Sweetest little bird nest full of new babies! I found them like this so soon after being born.. you can see that one egg hadn’t even hatched yet! I know you aren’t supposed to touch them or the mom can smell trouble and won’t come back so I’ve left them alone and just peek at them here and there. We all crowd around Kenny’s office door (it’s to the side of our front porch) and watch the mom fly in and out all day feeding them. Isn’t that the cutest thing ever!? So these trees are staying put. Once these babies can fly and are off on their own I will plant my trees but for now.. I don’t mind the mess and maintenance so much anymore. :)
I have decided though that once my trees are gone I’m ready for faux plants for this porch! What do you think of these hydrangea potted plants from Frontgate? I love the look.. I’m just wondering if I need something a little taller. I linked some Frongate favorites below because everything is up to 40% off this weekend!
Also my beloved T3 hair tools are on sale! Every hair tool I own is now T3. I especially love the blow dryer and curling iron. Long time favorites at our house! I linked other favorites on sale below. I have a lot of these items and just ordered #9 and #10. That throw looks so beautiful and is such a great price!
In other news.. my beautiful pink petal plates are back!
So is the cute petal cake stand that goes with them. I used them on my Easter table last year and got so many questions about them but they had sold out.
These plates also make great decor when we aren’t using them! They look so beautiful in a glass kitchen cabinet or stacked on a counter, open shelf or on a tray like I have them styled at the moment. I ordered these beautiful petal dinner plates to go with them too! (Mine are the salad plates.) Below are other RP favorites that are in stock. These items aren’t on sale, but I didn’t want to wait to share them because I know they will sell out!
Anthropologie has so many cute items marked down and some are up to 40% off! I rounded up my top picks below including our playroom light fixture. Their candles are always a treat and one of my favorite gifts to give. I just ordered this cute blue tassel pillow for Ad’s bedroom that I’ve had my eye on and the pineapple tee. Only slightly obsessed with Anthro graphic tees and planning to live in them this summer. :)
I snapped this pic quick with my phone and it’s not the greatest but Kenny just put together these cute nightstands for Ad’s room and I wanted to share! I LOVE the look and the quality seems great! I’ll let you know after we’ve had them for a while, but so far I’m very happy with them. They look like they have 2 drawers but it’s actually just one deeper drawer. They come in lots of colors and are on sale! I linked other Wayfair sale picks below. They have some great options for kids’ desks and outdoor items marked down.
Serena & Lily is also having a huge sale with 20% off of everything! S & L is another store I always wait to shop on sale day. Their pillows are so beautiful and amazing quality! I’ve found that if I splurge on one or two really nice pillows I can fill in the rest of my couch with less expensive Target/Walmart/Amazon options and still get a high end look. I linked my favorite S & L pillows below! They are pretty much all navy. :) Also how cute is that scallop tray and the lemon wallpaper!?
Colleen Rothschild is also having a huge Memorial Day sale! You can find details on my skin routine in this post. (The hair mask is GOLD!)
Pottery Barn also has some fun items on sale and I didn’t get my favorites rounded up from PB in time to share.. hopefully coming soon! I also hope this post helps you navigate if you are shopping the sales this weekend. Sometimes when so many fun things are marked down it’s hard to land on what you really want/need.
Kenny will be the first to tell you that I don’t have that problem at all. Ha. ;)
Enjoy your weekend and if you are traveling drive safe! We are celebrating Addison’s 15th birthday this weekend! Other than that and some cleaning I’ll just be over here shopping sales on-line and watching our baby birds.
Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.
