From the Front Porch

Happy Friday from the front porch you guys! How has your week been? I hope you’re balancing work things and fun things too. I know it’s hard sometimes to manage everything but I have no doubt we can be each other’s cheerleader and remind each other there is so much joy in the simple things.

Here’s a look at scenes from our week…

* You guys know how much I love the clearance plants from Lowes. These hanging baskets were only $5 each!

* If you follow us on Instagram you may have already seen these free chairs I mentioned in last Fridays post. I was totally shocked when every comment but one said to paint them.

* I just picked up these sunnies from TJ Maxx for $4.99!

* My mom called to see if I had any accessories we could try for a bedroom makeover we’re working on at Bliss Barrcks…umm, of course I do!

* I love anything equestrian inspired so I was super excited to see the September cover of Country Living. Have you guys tried double dipped cranberries lately? They’re amazing.   A serving size is only 9 pieces so it definitely leaves you wanting more.
