Friday Favorites – Life Lately!

Well, this last weekend was one for the books!  Want to know why?? We put in a patio with pavers from SCRATCH!! Who does that, right?!

I’m linking up with some of my favorite bloggers to share a few of my favorites from life lately- mainly our new PATIO! 😍

My inlaws were in town for the 4th of July weekend and we are so thankful for all their help!  We didn’t realize how many people we really would need to achieve this project but it really took about 10 people – and we probably could have used quite a few more the first day!Looks really fun, right?!The patio took about 2.5 days to put in and it was a lot of work!  We managed to only have a few bumps in the road; ordering the wrong set of pavers and realizing it AFTER almost all 1500 were manually moved to the back of the house, not ordering enough sand from the landscaping company, a terrible sunburn and an almost broken foot thanks to pavers and flip flops!It was definitely an experience to say the least! I think we’ll hire out next time πŸ˜‰

Once the patio was FINALLY finished – we set out for a few drinks and apps on a patio πŸ™‚

And also decided to give Glow-in-the-dark mini golf a try since regular mini golf wasn’t really possible with my poor SIL’s sunburn!

After mini golf, we headed back home to eat some leftover brisket and mac n cheese and settled on a few episodes of Ballers!​​

We had SO many sparklers left from our wedding, we thought we’d give those fun “boomerang” videos a try… and seriously they are hard to make cute! πŸ˜‚β€‹β€‹β€‹

How cute are my sister in laws?! So much fun!​

That’s it for life lately! I’ll try to refrain from all the patio pictures – it’s still a work in progress (decor wise)!

Happy Friday!! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?!

    WOW!!! The patio looks AH-MAZING and thank heavens for all the extra help. Don’t you just keep looking out at it and admiring how beautiful it is? That’s what I find myself doing anytime we complete a project. And it wouldn’t be a DIY if there weren’t a few snafu’s along the way. Great job! Now you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. Happy Weekend!!!

    Your patio is so cute! I love it. We put one in at our first house and it was so much work but we used it all the time. I love the furniture and that flamingo pillow! Happy weekend!
