From the Weekend

Beaver Lake

Long weekends are always wonderful. We went to the lake, out to dinner, to the pool and farmer’s market. It finally feels like summer!

Dreaming of Outdoor Living

Pinned Image

There’s nothing like pinterest to remind us all what we want and haven’t got. In the depths of January, despite our warmer than normal temperatures, I can’t get my mind off summer and pools and dream backyards with green grass. Typical. On Friday afternoons, my mind often wanders to what my plans would look like if it were May-August…
Suffice it to say, pool time would be on the agenda. These are a few of my favorite outdoor living scenes. Follow me on pinterest for more: http://pinterest.com/paytonvail

Let’s go camping!

I wouldn’t call myself a camping enthusiast. But, I do have a healthy relationship with the great outdoors. I can hit up an air conditioned cabin with the best of them! Seriously though, I love music festivals and floating. It’s not something I want to do every day but I do want to look good every time I do it.

Valentino, deer & other things.

I’ve discovered a website to adore: gofugyourself.com has me all excited. On another note and discovered via the fug girls, is it possible that Valentino really looks like this?

Over the weekend I went to South Arkansas with my bf. It was a good trip. His family is lovely and rather un-crazy so it’s always nice to see them. This particular weekend we went to the hunting camp and yours truly happened to witness two large bucks (the deer with the antlers for those of us unfamiliar) “locked-up” in the throes of some sort of Planet Earth-worthy altercation. I was rather proud that I chose to wear knee-high flat boots (thanks forever21!) as I sauntered through the forest hoping to get a look at the Bambi’s daddies/hoping to find a nearby tree if there was any chance of getting skewered. Boyfriend and I were a little behind the action but we did catch glimpses and in the end, the bucks were freed with the help of a 12-foot chainsaw, only an antler and an eyeball were lost…and there’s a video…to be posted shortly.
