Birch Lane Outdoor Makeover

Summer is coming to an end, BUT what an AMAZING summer it has been!!! We have stayed busy with lemonade stands, swimming and routine visits to the Snow Cone shack:)

Just because the school year is starting, it doesn't mean the colder weather is setting in anytime soon. We still have loads of beautiful days yet to enjoy, so let's enjoy it to the most!!!

Today, I have teamed up with Birch Lane. We are talking all about Outdoor Spaces!
Right now is the time to buy outdoor items; everything is is on SALE! What a great way to get ready for next spring by creating your outdoor space now and not missing out on all the great savings!!!

Magic can happen in any space in your home INCLUDING outdoors! Outdoor areas can become an extension of your home, adding comfort and square footage. Creating a little corner of luxury!

Our outdoor space went from this....
TO THIS...

4th of July...Red, White, and Blue Table

Happy 4th of July everyone! I can't believe it's already the 4th...where did the summer go already!?!? My family loves this time of year and our little town goes all out for this Holiday. Our local firework show is pretty darn impressive if you ask me.  Makes for a very fun and patriotic day!

I've always loved the combination of Red, White and Blue. I thought it would be fun to throw together a festive table and enjoy a meal with my family! 

Top 5 Swimsuits Shops- {Summertime Series}

With Spring here and Summer on the horizon, my Summer calendar is pretty much already full.  I'm on the hunt for a GREAT swimsuit!  Modest and looking glam is key at my age. Do I dare say that I am turning 38 this summer!  I have the summer all planned out with as much SUN time as possible and of course with my SPF 50 always at hand. I find my Summers are spent around lots of  family and friends at the beach, lake or pool and honestly, for the sake of those around me, I really do feel modesty is important!  With that being said, I also don't feel a need to wear my grandmother's swimsuit either! YIKES!!!

So today I want to share with you some swimsuit sites I like to shop at.
Hopefully they will be helpful to you. I think all these suits are darling and from GREAT companies!!!


This is a pretty new swimsuit company. But I was instantly attracted to their modest swim line and also the Flair and vibe of their company and owner. The sequin suit is killer!!!

5 Essential Pieces For Your Bed

In 2010 I posted this "The Perfect Bed" (click HERE for all the details :)
I even did a short TV segment on Utah's Fresh Living
That was a few years ago and a baby later... but, I still get loads of questions about my bed even today.  Color trends change all the time, and so did my bed!
