I did manage to get all of the items checked off of my to-do list though and we made it out alive. I even picked up a few things for myself including this lobster beach bag at TJ Maxx (which is enormous by the way) and a pair of metallic gold flip flops.
Aubrey got her first Olivia book and is obsessed with it. She has made me read it to her 2x in a row multiple times now. Pretty adorable who she is showing preferences to things now.
Then there's the tale of two benches... I really want a bench for our front entryway. I pictured a pretty table there when we saw the model home but for practicality purposes I think the bench is the way to go. I can't decide exactly what I want but I found two candidates:
|This is the style that I pictured getting and while I love everything about it, I'm afraid this material against my BM Revere Pewter walls will be too drab. Maybe more of a creamy color would be better?|
|Then there's the natural wood look... I surprised myself with this one because I tend to like darker wood but I really liked this style and I actually like the wood grain.|
What do you think?
I finally planted some flowers in the ground too! I have 4 peony plants and a hydrengea in the ground that I am hoping survive the crazy cold nights that we are still having here. I don't have a green thumb at all and I'm not a huge fan of gardening either so *fingers crossed* that all is well because I can't wait to make some cuttings and bring those beauties inside.
Have you started "spring cleaning" outside?
