On My Wish List: Outdoor Entertaining

When last year was ending, Clint and I looked at each other and agreed that 2018 was the year of NO HOUSE PROJECTS. Well…we did really good with that for about 3 months. Then, apparently, we got the itch to do something new around the house. And that leads us to today. We just finished a build out in two closets in our basement, my redesigned office is on order and yesterday we agreed to move forward with some outdoor projects that recently caught our attention when we were playing outside with the boys. 

So, what really inspired today’s wish list is my excitement about our outdoor updates. My favorite thing we’re doing is putting in a raised bed area where we can plant a little garden. I’m looking forward to spending some time with Jackson this summer working on that project when he’s off of school – which is going to be happening WAY too soon!

A few things on this week’s wish list that are worth highlighting:

  • This dinosaur sprinkler is essentially a must-have for us, given Jackson’s current dino obsession. It’s obnoxiously amazing and we need it. They also make a unicorn, you know, in case the dino obsession is not as strong at your house!
  • My front porch planters cracked over the winter so we had to throw them out. I love this style from Pottery Barn for a classic look on our front porch.
  • I randomly sent this cast-iron shrimp pan to Clint on Instagram the other day as something I “absolutely need to have.” If I’m being less dramatic about it, I just think its cool and we grill a lot so, why not?
  • Finally, I actually do NEED a set of 4 of these Swig Wine Tumblers. They come in a bunch of colors and may also help with my gardening motivation!
