Loving This Week

We've got big news this week...

Our back porch makeover project has officially kicked off! We made some progress, changed the direction a little, hit a bit of a roadblock, but now things are back on track.  Can't wait to share all the details with you soon. 

As a new to the South girl, I am already struggling with casual and comfortable hot weather, everyday clothes. It's only June here and it's already warmer than the one truly hot month in Chicago!
Lately, I've loved checking out Hi Sugarplum! for loads of style tips. She definitely has me thinking outside of the box when it comes to color combinations.

Ever since we added the chicken wire fence to our kitchen garden, we've seen just the tiniest bit of growth out of the garden. I think it's safe to say we should have concentrated more on our soil content before planting…you live and learn. But, in the meantime, we have been enjoying a tiny crop of late season lettuce. Beyond your typical salad, we've been enjoying fresh kale in our morning smoothies and fresh arugula in our pasta. Loving this recipe with the addition of cherry tomatoes and wilted arugula.

If you're local and love a good vintage/antique mall, a fellow blogger just opened a booth at Catawaba Antique Mall - Emily A Clark has impeccable style and her booth certainly shows it. I, personally, can not wait to check it out!

This is how we spent the majority of our week - 2 doctor visits in 3 days: pink eye, strep throat and ear infections! Here's to antibiotics and their fast healing powers - we'll be back at the pool before the end of the week.

Hope you had a great week! And big plans for the weekend!

until next time,
