the great outdoors

It's FRIDAY! I hope everyone has a fun weekend planned. My husband and I have been busy for what seems like all summer, so I for one am glad to be going absolutely nowhere. I'm really hoping to get some things taken care of around the house this weekend, one of which is tending to the backyard. And that got me thinking; I had a post planned for today, but I think I'm going to save it for Monday and leave y'all with some beautiful outdoor images to set the tone for the weekend. I keep telling my husband about this fantasy I have of hosting a fiesta with all of our friends in the backyard, but it needs some work before that happens. Here's to wishing that we hang some festive lights and perhaps even stain the deck, and maybe...just maybe one day our backyard will look half as great as some these do... 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
