WHW: Life Lately

Hey y'all long time no see right?! I"m playing catch up this week after being out on my last vacation of the year. Can y'all believe we were actually able to go? I had completely written this last beach trip off and then they reopened the beaches that Sunday morning. We had the best week and I was so shocked at the weather in the Outer Banks. I mean, it was seriously sunny every day and obviously not many people. I had a lot of friends that weren't as lucky in NC and I'm still praying for them daily. There are so many ways you can help remotely if you feel so inclined! 



On the new home front, we scheduled a delivery date of October 22nd for the new window installations and I'm so excited/curious to finally see these black exterior framed windows. Also, despite the rainy weather, the roofers seem to think they can complete the roof in 3 weeks or so. The wiring is almost completely finished and this has shown me just how many dang light fixtures I have to pick out (I'm counting in my head and already at 14...) 



On the random front, I've been appointed chair of the silent auction committee of the largest fundraiser of the year at Andi's (and my old) school. Its one of my favorite events and there's just not a lot of planning time (the event takes place in November) so needless to say I'm stressing just a tad. I"m such a 'yes' person......WHY?! (Go Falcons!) In other news, I scored 6 bamboo and cane chairs for LESS THAN $100 and cannot wait to pick those up. I also scored these bamboo and cane end tables as well. I already have a table and 8 chairs but I'm a sucker for bamboo anything and just couldn't pass them up! 



Lastly, garden club starts back up this week and I'm co-hosting our first gathering and our little town is having its annual 5 county fair which is always so dang cute and fun. My Dad and I are hoping to take Andi this weekend so I will definitely report back with some fun fair pics!

If you made it this far, thanks for reading and be sure to have a great rest of the week!

  8. Your beach trip looked lovely - were you there during the storm? The chairs and table are gorgeous - what a find! I bet you get asked to chair / organise a ton of things - once people find out you are a wedding planner I bet you are always in high demand! I love county fairs - we have a lot of them here. I've been to them in California with my Aunt and Uncle and they are always prettier than ours - remember one tent full of the pageant winners pictures and my aunt showing me around it as a teen. Here we have mostly beer tents full of sweaty red faced men and lots of sheep. J xx
