i swear i woke up on monday and said, i'm posting everyday this week.  well, it's friday and i did one post this week.  i HATE that!!  i have to be better!!  we got patio furniture and i have been out there every night this week.  maybe that's why i have been slack.  it's nothing fancy but i love having a place to gather....the kiddos like the box more then the furniture.  

i saw this picture on brooke's blog and i immediately saved it for what i wanted our back area to look like.  i want to add a window box and do a bricked- in grilling station!!  
warren painted the swing and hung it.  i got a cushion from world market...it will do for now but i would love to eventually recover it in a trina turk fabric.  please excuse the ADT sign and the lack of plants....one day we will get there!!  it's always a work in progress.  i would also love to cover the chain w/ rope.  
last but not least, i wanted to show y'all taylor's window treatment.  i showed y'all the inspiration:
and here it is in her room.....i think it turned out really cute!  now if i can just get the rest of her room together that would be great!!
i hope y'all have a wonderful mother's day!!  mom- thanks so much for being my best friend!  i love you :)  see y'all next week!

I always say that too, then the days just kind of get away from me, it's hard to blog everyday!

Love the swing! You'll get there...it is so hard for me to focus on my backyard when there is so much I want to do inside. Sigh.

The window shade is precious, I love how it compliments the headboard just perfectly.

Taylor's window treatment looks awesome! I also love the pink on her walls. We are searching for the perfect pink for my daughter's room. Do you mind me asking what color that is?

It seems like the kids just found their own haven. I like your idea of replacing the chain into a rope as it will make the whole thing more native. I'd suggest you use a rope that's not nylon. A rope made of rattan would be a perfect match.

I must say you made a perfect post for the week. :)
