My Weekend Starts At 5:00

7.31.2014
Today is my Friday and that automatically means I am in la la land and completely ecstatic about a long weekend.

If you follow me on Insta, you know that as I'm writing this post I am sitting at my NEW patio furniture (shriek), sipping a fabulous ginger-ale/ice cream concoction all while my hubby slaves over the grill filling my nostrils with that tasty dish called dinner. Seriously I don't know if it gets any better? Maybe if I was munching on some chips and queso while I waited. Yes, definitely so.


So here's the low-down on this patio furniture. I've been begging for a patio set for two years. TWO years. I see this set I love at Kroger. It's $700... Never going to happen. So naturally, as I have been doing for years now, I let it go and moved on. Well low and behold the patient bird gets the worm. (That's a new saying I've created, let's go with it). I stopped at the grocery store a few weeks ago and I saw the most beautiful 50% off sign sitting on top of my patio set.

Que the happy dance! Of course, hubs still wanted to wait and see if it would go down further as the Summer weeks passed. In an effort to obligue him I even called the store a few times asking if they would go down any further or if they'd throw an umbrella in for free. ANYTHING to make this even more of a deal for hubs. They wouldn't budge. The weeks were passing and I was afraid it would get snatched up.

Turns out all I had to do was go there with his mother because the next day it was sitting on my porch. I sure do love the power of a momma's touch - aka - a momma's stern warning to buy the table for his wife. 
 

Now to pressure wash, find some decorative goodies and perk this spot up a bit!
 
Cheers to the last few weeks of Summer! You know where I'll be.
