i never got to reface my house or do any landscaping this year - but next year i'm ALL about my backyard - i really want to make it my oasis - i have a pretty large backyard to work with, which is a good thing, it's not huge, but now small either - i did a lil here and there this year - but nothing like i imagine it to one day look like - here's a few things i have in my mind for my backyard oasis:
this is something i can SO make on my own - i'm good with power tools and know about all the joints i'll need and so forth - and i always wanted a pond in my backyard - but i'm worried about all the wildlife will eat my fish ... hummmm
this is a MUST have for me - you have NO idea! - a few years back my Dad decided to study the stars - Yes my Dad is like me, once he gets a thought about something, it's balls to the wall and will be an expert at the end - anyway - so when he studied the stars he went in his backyard and with sticks and twine he made me a telescope that pointed directly at the North Star .. SEE how amazing my Dad is - so THIS little DIY backyard club house, HAS to make it's way to my backyard - and seems easy enough to build!
i would LOVE 2 of these to be on my little cement patio i already have - i already have the PERFECT orange lil side table to go with them - problem is - Anthropologie is SOLD OUT of them *boo* - i missed my boat - but maybe someone will put them up on Craigslist or something - stranger things have happened!!
YES i'm showing this AGAIN - no one is taking the HINT around me - i would DIE for this exact one! - it's the Knotted Melati hanging chair - looks like i'm gonna have to pull the trigger before this one gets sold out like the chair above! (i came to the conclusion that my family and friends aren't good puzzle solvers or hint gatherers - all along i thought i made it perfectly clear that i WANT THIS BADLY, haha)
and of course i HAVE to have the old fashion swing! - i have the PERFECT tree right in the middle of my lawn for this baby - doesn't make you smile just looking at it?!
i bought 2 Legare Tri chairs from HauteLook for my back porch - paid $120 each instead of $396 each - SCORE! - which i have 2 more wire chairs i bought a few years back that will look awesome together!
A MUST for me - my neighbor has a dog Lucky who is ALWAYS crying to come over and sneaks out of his house and comes to mine to visit Kayleigh - so something like this between our fences are a MUCH have - as many of you know - my house is LITERALLY right next door to my parents - so on their side of the fence there will be a door - for the pups (soon to be pig too) can go back and forth!
what backyard is complete without a fire pit? - um NONE! - so of course i will need a fire pit and i love how they have the stone a few feet back from it for fellow pit lovers to sit!
heck while i'm dreaming away - a pool like this would be FABULOUS in my backyard - waterfalls all along the side - now if anyone has an extra 100G's let me know!!!! - u'll have an OPEN invite to swim whenever!!!
WHAT DOES YOUR BACKYARD LOOK LIKE?
HOW WOULD YOU DREAM UP A PERFECT BACKYARD?
I DID IT - 3 day cleanse DONE - WOOOO HOOOOO - and your not gonna EVER believe this - i am missing having my Green Juice rigth now!!!!! -- i actually started to REALLY enjoy these drinks! - last night after my last drink (the cashew milk) i had so much energy i was up to 4am cleaning - i feel AMAZING - and when my Doctor saw me yesterday - she was like "WOW you look great" - so i said "Wow, i guess this stuff REALLY does work!" .. DEF doing another cleanse at the end of September! - but I heard there's a juice bar in Summit, NJ who makes the same cleanses but MUCH cheaper (can't call it the same name for obvious reasons)
