Right now Brandon and I are hanging out in West Virginia at my family’s hunting lodge for the weekend. I’m planning to do a bit of FB Live from the farm and, of course, a couple of Instagram stories so if you’re not already following me I recommend doing so now (Facebook + Instagram) so you can catch all the goodness as I share it. I’m sure there will be farm animals, bonfires, gardening, and we might even sneak in a trip to Point Pleasant, West Virginia to check out the infamous Mothman! Lol.
I’ve really missed my family and I know this weekend is going to do my heart some good. Plus, I’m anxious to talk to visit my grandparent’s home one last time before it’s torn down and explore my childhood stomping grounds with my husband. I’m also hoping to pick up a few gardening and canning tips from my mom so I can bring them back and implement them into our Georgia life.
We have a balcony that has sat neglected since we moved in to our apartment 2 years ago and this year I want to turn it into a beautiful outdoor sanctuary space. I’m looking to add a few plants and veggies out there along with furniture and lighting. If I get around to actually doing that this spring I’ll be sure to share it here on the blog (of course) so you can all see my beautiful new space and learn all about my gardening successes and failures.
Until then, check out my favorite weekend links from the week we just wrapped…
Weekend Links Vol 4
1 // MJ’s post on I Need a Playdate where she shares what they learned about container gardening.
2 // Ashlyn Bradbury shared a how-to for peppermint breath mints for dogs which I’m kind of loving because Wilkins’ stinky breath smells like fish and it’s awful! I had the vet check him out and she says he’s good, just stinky. 🙁
3 // These stunning DIY lavender sachets with photos by Sugar and Charm. I just discovered Sugar and Charm a couple of weeks ago but it’s easily become one of my favorite blogs to follow. She has a million DIY’s that I want to try and I highly recommend stalking her blog and checking out all of her amazing content.
4 // This gorgeous Hydrangea Print Dress shared by Covering the Bases although I’m madly in love with the bag she features! I’m not willing to spend $220 on it though so I’m going to attempt a DIY version soon. If it works out, I’ll share it with you.
5 // Blair, the DIY wonder queen from Rose Gold Outlook, shared this adorable summer DIY pom pom tote which is super cute for days spent at the beach or poolside.
6 // Kelly from Primarily Inspired got real in her post about marriage deal breakers and why you need to talk about them. She also said she was inspired by me (awwwww!) so obviously I had to share. 😉
7 // The Lettered Cottage shared wipeable farmhouse tablecloths which I’ve been eyeing since my new dining room table is ordered and on the way. I love the farmhouse decor trend and since I’m notoriously messy in the kitchen wipeable tablecloths are a must for me even without children.
That’s it friends, those are my favorites from this week. Now, I’ll leave you with a joke – What do you call spiders that just got married? Newly-webs! LOL.
