Anyway, this blog post is about coasters... somehow I got carried away talking about my husband and our love for working together... It's hard for me to write a blog post and not to mention my husband, if you haven't picked up on that little detail yet. He is simply the greatest, he is my life. (Oh, and he helps with almost all of my DIY projects...) :-}
camping trip in the beginning of June, if you haven't read it yet, check it out! Camping is SO.MUCH.FUN! While we were camping, we picked up a few tree logs... For coasters! I've been seeing coasters made out of tree stumps ALL over the internet. Of course being a fan of rustic home decor, I really wanted to add some to our home. They were really easy to make. Says me, because I didn't even make them... :( My husband used a saw to cut them out and all I did was smooth them out with a sander. I've been using them a lot, hot tea lover I am! We made a ton, these will make great gifts! I hope next time you're in the woods, you will find yourself a fun little project as well! If you already have wooden coasters, (I feel like everyone has them) please share the link in the comments below, I would love to see! :) Thank you for stopping by! I'm off to drink some tea! Happy Wednesday! M.

DIY ladder shelf and also how I've obsessed about my vintage tin cans. I'm in love with vintage things. I was giddy when I stumbled upon some vintage cans while treasure hunting at our local Goodwill.

I can't chat for too long today as it is Saturday and we have a wedding to go to! :)
Here are a few snippets of our camping trip via iPhone. (I only used my phone for pictures, nothing else while camping!)

sandals makeover project. I had so much fun creating these cheerful sandals. I will be wearing them a lot this summer! Red is my favorite color and anything that's comfortable is always a win in my book! ;) What is your favorite DIY project? Thank you for reading! Happy weekend! xo, m.

It has been awhile since I've done a garden update. Well here it is, folks! It's all green and beautiful! Loving every second of gardening! I love taking peeks at my garden each morning, afternoon and evening! This evening I just got done watering my plants!
Cannot wait till these little guys will be ready :)
This will be a sugar snap pea... soon!
My tomatoes that I've planted around May 10th, froze over night on May 13th. Why is there frost in May? Why? We were in DC that day and didn't have a chance to cover them... :( So sad! I do have the best dad in the whole wide world though, and he planted new ones for me! Surprise! We were away celebrating our anniversary and I thought as soon as we get back I will buy new plants and wait until June to plant them! But my daddy beat me to it, we came home to beautiful tomato plants standing strong. Ahhh... the stories of gardening. Hopefully no more frost, but more of this...
How is your garden doing this spring?? :) Thanks for stopping by! xo, m.

I have the sweetest husband on earth. No doubt. I've been wanting to watch The Great Gatsby ever since I heard it's coming out. I love the 1920s. I've read the book and knew this movie will be just magical. Knowing that Leonardo DiCaprio will be starring in it was just the silver lining! :) Anyway, my hubby took me to watch it!!! I was so excited! I thought I'd be going with my girlfriends to see it, but he suggested we go see it together! I love my girlfriends, but this was amazing news to me!!! We went to see the 9:40 show on our anniversary!!! My heart was happy! We typically don't go out to watch movies, so this was special! (Don't worry, we have date nights often, but they don't involve a movie theater, more like ice cream and park... and exploring... and ice cream... and adventures... and road trips.) Did I say ice cream twice?! ;) Sometimes it's smoothies!
Why am I talking about The Great Gatsby today? Well, you see, the song by Lana Del Rey "Young And Beautiful" is on repeat in my head all.day.long!!! My husband and I both LOVE Lana's voice and her music. When we sat in the theatre holding hands and our full attention on the movie and heard Lana singing we both were smitten! (I expected great music in this film, but didn't know whose music it would be!) We grinned at each other and did a little hand squeeze from excitement. Are we dorky or what?!
The whole movie was magical and the music was AMAZEBALLS! Both hubby and I LOVED this movie and couldn't stop talking about it for the next couple of days! ;)
After the movie we left for our trip to Wilmington. We loved spending our 3 year anniversary at our home with a home cooked meal. One of our favorite things to do is having a homemade dinner together! So we decided we will leave town after our anniversary is over. Best decision ever! :)
If you haven't watched the movie yet, go see it, you will love it! And listen to Lana more often if you haven't been doing so yet! ;)
I have to leave you all with the lyrics... Just 'cause.
Btw, the song is still in my head!! (I don't mind it one bit!) :)
