Bun in the Oven

Hello. Hello.
Just saying a brief hello and sharing a picture I posted on Instagram and Facebook the other day.
(While you're at it, follow me at Instagram and like my Facebook page, PLEASE.)

Does this count as still being able to see my feet?

Busy Busy

Hi there lovies.
I guess I'm going into nesting mode early because I've been set to cray cray mode for getting the house in order. We moved the boys into a different room and got them bunk beds, so I'm working on the decor of that room {pictures coming soon}. I also wanted to get the patio around the pool set up, so that we could enjoy the area with friends and family ALL summer long.
Before buying the furniture, I decided on a color palette (slightly backwards, but picking colors is a lot less difficult than figuring out a furniture configuration that works best for your space). I had to choose something because we were ordering umbrellas and I had to pick the colors.

All the food was prepped and I got out all of my outdoor dining gear.

I put the sunscreen into this cute little bucket I got from One Kings Lane.

 I still hadn't gotten around to planting the annuals in their usual spot around the driveway.  I couldn't have people over to the house without finishing that up. Let's just say this big belly of mine is making it hard to do a lot of gardening this summer.

So, I enlisted some help:

While Tristan was helping with the planting, Hayden helped by taking over my phone to document the process:

More importantly, he had to take a TON of selfies while we were toiling away.

Somehow, we got the job done in time:
(excuse the messy leaves on the driveway. this pic was just after a little rain storm.)

and we were able to enjoy ourselves poolside:
