A Couple Porch Additions and We Are Off...





Added a few pillows to the back porch.  From left to right-the floral found at Home Goods, the green and orange chevron print found at TJ Maxx.

This week flew by!  Katie, our youngest had her wisdom teeth out a week ago today.  She did great!  And, we have been busy putting things together for our trip back to our home away from home, Waco, Texas.  We fly out tomorrow morning.  We will land in Austin, bright and early, and then hit up Ikea on our way back to her new "home away from home" for this fall to get her new room all set up!  Quick trip...we fly in tomorrow and will be back home on Sunday!

We can't wait to see the duplex now that everything has received a good scrubbing and fresh coat of paint, along with brand new carpet.  Let's just say...when her dad and I first saw the place a few months ago, we thought she had lost her mind.  We could not envision our baby girl living in such a place.  (who knew girls could be so messy).  However, the transformation is amazing!

Can't wait to share her decorating journey along the way.  She is going with a white, navy and coral color palette.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Glad your daughter is recovering well from her oral surgery experience. They can be tough for some! Your oil lilies look so pretty! Happy weekend!

I love your pillows. I saw that same pillow on the left end at TJ Maxx last week. I have the same pattern on a chair, but I like it so much I wanted to use it elsewhere in the house. Hope you had a good trip and settled things in nicely for your daughter.

Love your new pillows!! TJ Maxx, Homegoods, and Marshalls are my favorite stores in the whole world. Can't wait to hear about your trip to Ikea. Hope you took lots of pics!

The porch looks just lovely! The pillows really are a fabulous addition!

My #1 has a consult in two for getting her wisdom teeth out. I don't think she is going to have time to do it this summer so we are looking at Christmas break...don't know what to expect in terms of recovery time...glad your daughter did well!!!

Have a wonderful trip and will look forward to hearing about it when you return!
