Five on Friday - Outside, Tulips, Mills, W&S, Lunch

ONE:  We have been spending a lot of time on our back patio in the evenings.  I just know that soon it will be 100+ degrees and mosquitoes so we are having dinner outside, hanging with Mills, swinging in the hammock and just enjoying the quiet.  It's SO nice!




TWO:  Mom and I planted tulips in October and it's been so cool to see how they change every day when I come home.  Yesterday, we met with our yard guy that helps us out and he's going to mulch and edge around some beds (like this one) in early April.  We are trying to hold off so the yard will be extra pretty for our baby shower weekend!




THREE:  Did you know Williams Sonoma will sharpen your knives for you?  I don't know if you had to get them there or not.  The first one is free and the rest are $5.  They examine them for any chips as well and will repair those at no extra cost.  I'm not willing to mess up our Shun knives and they really should be professionally sharpened so I was really glad to hear W&S will do them for you.

FOUR:  I went to Home Goods near my office this week and hit the jackpot.  Most times I leave with nothing so this was a good surprise.  As I mentioned yesterday, I got the two curtain rods for the nursery for $16.99/each...much cheaper than the $$$ Pottery Barn ones, though those are pretty.  I also came home with this guy.  He's huge so I had to put him on our sofa so you could see just how big he is.  We video'd Mills' reaction when he saw him for the first time....Mills definitely thought he was real!  Won't he be adorable in the nursery?

FIVE:  Lunch with the girls on Wednesday.  Always a highlight of my week!

I am totally with you on spending as much time on the porch before it becomes humid and too hot! Love your Home Goods find, one of my favorite spots! Have a great weekend love!

Look how great Mills is with the baby! That must be a relief to know. I love the big stuffed animal! Both my brother and I had one huge stuff animal growing up and we still talk about them.

Jealous that you’ve been able to be enjoying your patio – we just need to get a couple degrees higher here to do that! The tulips are so beautiful! Hahah my mom wants to get one of those pups for our dog!

I don't know how you walk out of HG with nothing usually! I always buy something there.
PS - they have the best price for a high quantity of dog poop bags!
