Weekend Vibes - 4.15.16

Apr 20, 2016

Hi! Here with a weekend update. Mine was a productive one full of time spent outdoors. My mom came into town to visit and I loved having her as my sidekick. My weekend could be broken down into 3 basic categories, as follows.

Yard work + planting + DIYs >>
I'm slowly working to clean out plant beds, plant container gardens, plant new shrubs and re-vamp my back patio into an oasis (more on that later).

two new shrubs going into my flower bed


I finished chalkpainting my thrifted dining chairs for my dining room. I still need to thrift & paint one more- there is a bench that matches my table on the side against the wall. I used Amy Howard On Step Paint in "a good man is hard to find".


Supporting Local >> 
My mom & I dined at two local spots

we had dinner on Bradden's patio and soaked up the 70+ degree weather. Now that I live close to St. Charles, I plan to explore the downtown/main street area. So many charming boutiques and restaurants. A new spot for my Embrace MO list.

my mama bear (ha, get it?) and I had brunch at the Companion West Campus (which I love!)

Groceries + hardware store + home decor

Trader Joe's bar haul. This margarita mixer is delightful!

  2. We have been doing so much work in the yard too. I'll be happy when we start adding stone and new plants! I love your dining room table!
