Around the House

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  We enjoyed ours but it is so hot here and at this point, I am over it.  BUT, too bad for me because we’re really not going to get much of a break in temperature until mid-September.  We’ve all just got to deal with it and also commiserate with each other!  🙂  The weather is something we’ve all got in common — it’s hot for everyone!

 My mom-in-law has been bringing home fresh flowers every week and creating a little arrangement on the breakfast bar, and this is her newest bouquet.  🙂  It’s little details like this that just make my day.  Also, a little secret for flower longevity is to add three ice cubes into your vessel per day.

 On Saturday Greyson was working and I slept in but once I was up and ready, I decided to head out to a coffee shop that I love and read some blogs — one of my favorite things to do!  🙂  This particular coffee shop has an amazing selection of homemade baked goods and I just couldn’t pass up this pretty cupcake.  White cake with lemon cream cheese frosting…it was so good.  I was so excited when I took my first bite and realized that it wasn’t buttercream!  I’m not a buttercream person, but cream cheese frosting?  I’m all over that!

 Like I said, it has been so hot, so all I really do is view the patio as I’m traveling up and down the hallway leading to the back of the house.  The hallway has two giant windows and I love seeing all the pretty out there.  Once a day I straighten up a bit — fluff the pillows, etc. — just in case someone has been brave enough to be out there.  Occasionally I pick up Kuma’s poop because one of his favorite spots to go is by the window, lol, and no one wants to see that!

 I got the prettiest orchid for our casita at Trader Joe’s yesterday.  There really is no better place to buy an orchid — I only paid $12.99 for this one and it is huge!  It came in a terracotta pot but I switched it out for this white one I already had.

This is the first thing I see when I walk in the door of our room, and I just love that happy orchid greeting me.  The window has a beautiful view out to the pool (and the gorgeous red pool loungers!) so the plant gets the perfect amount of sunshine during the day.

I hope you had the best day!  I’ve got some summery vignettes to show you this week that I’m excited to share.  🙂
