Vacation Scenes

I'm back from our Hilton Head vacation. We had a great time. For the first part of the week the weather was blissful. It was in the mid 80's and breezy. We took every opportunity those first 3-4 days and spent every moment outside. We hit the beach, swam in the pool, and ate al fresco every meal. The rest of the week was HOT and HUMID though we still had a great time. We took a day off from the beach and did a little shopping, we enjoyed a few trips to the ice cream shop to help us cool off and more time in the pool. We also enjoyed a great morning kayaking. All in all a fabulous week. It's great to go back, reminisce, and make these memories with our little lady, all of these things were successfully completed.

looking for sand dollars

lots of beautiful boats to look at and dream about

and another one of those incredible sunsets

It's such a wonderful place. It's beautiful. The beaches are incredible. They are a mile wide when the tide is out and the ocean is great for finding sand dollars and starfish. There are bike paths all over the entire island. There is so much to see and do. If you have never been it's a definitely a place to put on your list. It can be very relaxing or you can be very active. Golf and tennis are extremely popular on the island as well as great water sports. The restaurants are to die for. There are plenty of high end options but two of our favorites and must visits are Harold's Diner for breakfast and lunch and Boathouse which sets right on the May River and offers some stunning sunsets. I can't wait to go back!

Happy Monday!!

What I Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday and time for another posting of what I am wearing each day. I am linking up with lindsay at the Pleated Poppy to share my outfits from this last week for What I Wore Wednesday.

Tank - Old Navy
Cardigan - Old Navy
Cargo Pants - Target ( there were a few days in between these two days)

Cardigan - Old Navy
Dress - Loft
Shoes - really old

Dress - Walmart
Shoes - I don't remember but bought them at an outlet in PA
Necklace - Thrifted

Not a bad week. I at least took some pictures. I am really liking the cargo pants, they are so comfortable but I can see in these pictures that they are not exactly flattering. Comfort vs style....hmmmm, sometimes there is just no debate.

I have vacation on my mind. We leave soon to go to our favorite vacation spot, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It's where my husband and I met and we get back every chance we get.

I hope you are having a great week.

Kitchen Re-do

Hi. It's Tuesday. Monday just disappeared. I feel like I lost a day. We had such a fun weekend that I didn't get any of my errands or things around the house done so i spent yesterday catching up and playing with the little one.

My husband and I would love to remodel our kitchen. It is still up in the air as we are still debating the cost and the economy. The housing market in Florida has plummeted so we know that we will not make the money back. When we bought our house, six years ago, we only anticipated being in it and the area for 3-5 years. Well, it looks like we are going to be here a while longer and want to do some upgrades to make it our own. We figure if we are going to be living here for a while we might as well enjoy it.

Here are a few pictures that we are looking to as inspiration.

I love the look of stainless appliances with a white kitchen

I love the glass front cabinets in this kitchen
not sure of the source

We would do a lighter countertop like marble or soapstone, though we may keep our grey toned Silestone and we would love either a subway tile back splash or glass tile. We want to lighten and brighten our home and think that a white kitchen would be really nice and it suits our coastal style.

We would also love to add french doors in place of our pocket sliders off the back of the house and to upgrade our bathroom as well.

I'm dreaming in white!
