Little List

Hello my lovelies.

It's been a little while since I've done a little list and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Tuesday.

1. Summer is here, I know my slightly stylish post looked like we were freezing but warm weather came with the first week of summer.

2. Speaking of which, is there anything more delightful than sitting outside on a warm summer evening?

3. Ok, an afternoon date for ice cream might be more delightful but I can't decide.

4. I spent all day yesterday cleaning up one of our extra bedrooms. In the 6 months Jus & I have lived in the Behemoth we've painted 9 rooms & only set up 7, four of which are bathrooms. I can't tell you how nice it is to get another room set up.

5. Now that a guest room is set up we're in desperate need of curtains. I'm thinking of buying fabric & having them sown into curtains. I've had the fabric for the living room for a while but have yet to get curtains sewn.
all fabric via

6. I've been craving iced tea lately but I haven't been drinking nearly enough. I need more Arnold Palmers in my life.

7. The people we got Edie from just had another litter of puppies. I'm trying to convince myself that we don't need another Basset Hound.

8. Warm days make me wish that we had a pool in the back yard. I can't tell you how many times a day I would run out back and jump in the pool if we had one.

9. Last week I finally got around to getting new art for our bathroom, or should I say making new art.

10. I ended up making an extra painting that I would love for one of you lovelies to have. And cause I love you oodles I thought I'd give you lots of ways to win this giveaway.

Omg those puppies are so freaking cute. And I'm with you on the pool. I would love to have one. I'm thinking were eventually goin to get atleast an above ground one. It's so worth the money.

I am pretty sure I'd hang that painting in my bedroom or maybe livin room it would match both places:) thanks for the giveaway.

I love this list, the sound of an afternoon eating ice cream, and all those sweet puppies! Such a great list!

Amanda said...
